This is an popular place and unfortunately the day we got the feeling that they were understaffed. The head of house seemed to be trying to do too much and in doing this 2 tables that sat after us got served before us. The food however was great. We had decided to have dessert however nobody came back to take... More

Three of us ate here on a Friday night. We were seated downstairs not too far from the fire so it was nice and warm. The waitress that showed us to our table wasn't very friendly, she put a board up on a spare chair and told us these are the specials and walked off. There were also no prices... More

My husband and I ate at the upstairs part of Killer Prawn recently with a group of about 20 others. We paid $24.90 for all you can eat pizzas. The staff were friendly and accommodating, they brought out garlic bread and fries quite quickly, and then the pizzas a bit later on. The atmosphere was good, although it does get... More

Have visited previously and had an extremely enjoyable experience. Sadly, not this time. Upstairs at Killer Pizza a large group of us froze our butts off as the staff would only turn on one heater and had an absolute fit when we opened the door to let some of the heat from downstairs in. Service was slow and surly and... More
