Atherton is a relatively small country town, so if you are looking for 5 star a la carte dining, perhaps you should look elsewhere.  The town has a number of hotels that serve good old fashioned counter meals, probably the most popular being the Barron Valley Hotel.  All of the pubs are in the main street and easy to find.

There are a couple of Asian themed restaurants, but to be honest, this is a small town, and the quality of the fare reflects that.   But a surprising treat is Khan's Curries just on the outskirts of town.  It is only open Wed to Sun, and is take-away only.  But you have to try the house specialty and the vegetable kofka.

And if you like good coffee, the try Gallery 5 on Herberton Road, and the Atherton Swimming Pool which offers java that is superior to most.
