We visited Tim's in Feb 2017 whilst holidays with our kids in darwin. Loved that the kids ate free before 6.30 (I think), the service was great. I had the seafood basket which was ok. Fresh prawns tasted a little soggy and there was to much fried food, husband had the Wagyu t-bone (score 6 apparently), highly doubt it was... More

I had the parama with prawns and my mate the straight chicken parama. We shared an entree of crumbed croc. Both the Parmas were deep fried very big and tasteless. The salad ordinary and with 1 drink each a $86.00 bill. Would not consider returning

Me and my boyfriend had food here on valentines night. We waited an hour and a half for our food which was a bit disappointing for me as we ended up eating pretty late.

Came here with friends. All of us very hungry as hadn't had time to stop for lunch because too busy sightseeing! Portions are VERY generous, the quality is superb and the price is reasonable. One of us had the seafood platter,and although a dedicated foodie could not manage to finish it! The owner,Tim Hayward, is also a member of Britains... More

It our first time there and the Staff are friendly and welcoming. I love the humor of the boss with sign like: "Today special is because we had you here" & for the kids "Be good and you get free serve of Ice Cream" The outdoor setup are great and indoor are a bit noisy if there are group function...

My family of 5 have been to Tims Surf and Turf twice during our visit to Darwin. Not only because it is right near our hotel, but the staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is AMAZING! Large portions and great quality. Will be back again

Went to this restaurant as it was just behind our hotel. My only disappointment is I didn't order the steak. Had to go back the next night and order the steak it was without a word of a lie the best steak I have had in ages. The kids loved it and Tim's a real gem of a guy.
