We were on a two week drive through Central Australia and it was our wedding anniversary - the Sounds of Silence experience was cancelled (due to death of one of the performers) so Arnguli Grill was suggested by staff. It was a very average experience - on a night when they did not appear busy we waited a reasonably long... More

We couldn't get into the "Sounds of Silence" dinner by the rock so we opted for here for our anniversary dinner. My prawn entrée was small for the price and a bit dry but my pork cutlet main course was excellent. My husband's entrée was fine but his roo main course was overcooked maybe even re - heated. The waiting... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 7.30pm with no booking. The staff were extremely accommodating & found us a table by 8pm. It was a set Xmas menu - Adult $145 & children $18. (This included unlimited beer/wine) The service was fantastic & the food was amazing!! Well worth the $$. Would definitely recommend & return!

Went here after reading the various reviews. The decor is a little dated but they are about to have some renovations so forget that. Food and service was really great. Happily recommend to any readers.

I bookended my five days in Yulara with a trip here. Located in the Desert Gardens Hotel, "arunguli" is actually the aboriginal word for "bush plum." The white linen dining tables are well-spaced, overlooking a small garden and adjoining pool. Reservations here are essential, and both evenings were booked solid when I went. The menu is fairly conservative with, thankfully,... More

All the food was cooked on point. I had a softshell crab soup with a crab bisque, the Wallabytartar on bluecheese risotto, the Black Angus beef filet steak and... More
