Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is very (!) informal. No luxury whatsoever. But what does that matter; the waiters were very friendly and the food very good. Of course; the prices are on the cheap side so there is a limit to what you can expect.

Today’s early lunch at Frogs Restaurant Kuranda was brilliant! The Sri Lankan Barramundi and Tamarind Curry was spectacular and the small serve of half curry and half rice (perfectly cooked) was great value and exactly the right size - leaving you feeling full but not...stuffed! My waiter, Kris, was lovely - very professional and made me feel very welcome and looked after. Highly recommended!More

Stopped for a quick sandwich lunch and while it’s only for breakfast, they were available at 12:45. Excellent meal and gluten free for a companion. Very good drinks (Mango smoothie) and Lemon Lime Bitter which was superb. Highly recommended and very friendly staff in a...great location.More

My husband and I have been Kuranda locals for almost 40 years, but at the same time we are very welll travelled. We have eaten in restaurants all over Asia, Europe and the Americas.Kuranda being a small town and us living out of town means...we don't eat out much, when we are here.So, today, just like that we decided to eat lunch at Frogs.Very unusual for us and we had no expectations at all. My husband and I have very different eating habits. He is a meat man and I am a fish girl. He has eaten more hamburgers in more countries than I can possibly count so his word on a burger is GOLD. He loved it and said it was not the kind of pre made cereal filled patty but was delicious. My barramundi was great. I wolfed it all down. The atmosphere the service, the staff all second to none. How luky are we ...that Frogs is in our home townMore

We stopped by here for lunch. I had the steak sandwich and my wife the burger. Both were yummy and tender, no knife needed. A few cans of beer and we were set. Would go back again.

The meals were all large, and freshly made. I had the avocado and sheep’s feta salad, which was fresh and full of plenty of ingredients. We also got a croc-emu-roo platter to share, to try three of the Aussie meats, which was actually quite delicious.

This is a great place for both locals and tourists. We live near Kuranda and came here regularly over the last 2 years for the tasty curries, excellent service and relaxed atmosphere. If you want to get a genuine taste of Kuranda, this is the...place! It comes complete with rainforest dragons ( not dangerous- just very cute) and views of the rainforest. Well ventilated if you are COVID cautious with open sides.More

What I ate here is DEFINITELY NOT Sri Lankan food. Just advertise as Indian food, so that people who don't like Indian food, do not eat here. There is a distinct taste difference between Sri Lankan and Indian food and this is definitely the latter.

Kuranda is a real tourist trap and we were delighted to find this eatery. Clear from the outset that it was different to most of the other tourist offerings. Lovely setting, inside and outside tables available. Extensive and interesting menu including the option to try...crocodile, emu and kangaroo. We opted for the homemade curries, a pizza and fish. Very friendly wait staff (with an amazing memory!). Good selection of drinks including local beers and non alcoholic options. Good when it came was very good. Only the pizza was deemed ‘average’ by our teenage daughter. The curries were stand out. We had the small portions which came with rice and were more than enough for lunch. A really good place to eat and the busyness of the place was testament to this. Highly recommended.More

Frogs has an amazing ambience tucked away in a secluded part of Kuranda behind the markets near the Koala and bird sanctuaries. You won't walk away with a bad taste in your mouth and feeling like youve been stung in your back pocket by a...swarm of wasps ! Frogs has been there for about 30 years with a great reputation and is definitely not a fly by night rip and run eaterie. The al fresco old farm style decor is classy and very much Australian as opposed to boring modern kitsch. Frogs has an excellent tasty menu and some awesome curries. Amazing coffee. Five star VALUE!More

Laid back atmosphere that suited that Kuranda area. As soon as we walked in we were greeted nicely from the staff and had an amazing lunch. They had great vegan and vegetarian options which is hard to find nowadays.
