4 of us visited Australasia pre concert. We spent an eternity deciding where to eat, as I was worried about the reviews and the value for money. I have got to say, the food, service and ambience were fantastic. I thought that it was actually very good value for money. Just leave room for dessert, they were outstanding!!

Unfortunately wasn't able to book a table in advance but came in to see if they were accepting any walk-ins. They were able to seat the two of us provided we gave the table back at a certain time.. And were given 90 minutes to eat. Provided we just wanted some small plates and sushi this was ample time! Hannah... More

This place is amazing, it's entrance so minimalistic that you don't even realise what lies underneath! Sushi is really tasty, staff are really lovely and attentive, and the decor is beautiful! Quite pricey but nice place for a special occasion.

Stopped here for a cocktail whilst visiting the Christmas Markets, this is a great alternative to The Alchemist and The Botanist, great cocktails, slightly cheaper and much less queuing.

You know the sort of place, everyone says how amazing it is and when you get there you go 'is that it'.... A tip, go and spend your money somewhere lease where they actually work for your custom and treat you like a customer. Six of us dined here on a Recent Friday evening, we arrived at 8.30 for our...

Been twice in the last two weeks and have loved it both times. The food is great. The wine choices are good. The atmosphere and seating is brill. I love this restaurant. It isn't cheap but it is quality and worth every penny. Both times I have been with a group of 5 and group of 8 (had to have... More

Nice decor and friendly informative staff but the portions are small on the sharing dishes and come with a big price tag. I'm sure the menu could be attacked better from my end but I felt there was a lack of depth to the cooking that justified the price.

Had this booked for a special occasion and whilst the setting and the atmosphere is really very cool without being too pretentious I was not overwhelmed by the food. The menu reads terrifically well but execution was only average and for the money I'd expect near excellence. Service was only adequate and at points was non-existent on a busy-ish mid-week... More
