“shocking....”
Reviewed 9 November 2012 via mobile

Arrived there with a group of 10 for a B-Day dinner. Started up that we had to wait for more than 2 hrs for our food. The staff kept on apologizing to us saying ...sorry but there is only a few more tables ahead of you... so?!? people who clearly came in 1/2 hr after we ordered were eating before the chef even thought about making ours. If you cant cook for 10 people at the same time dont take the booking!
Spend $35 on a steak... ordered medium rare.... the steak was well done- streaky and dry... so thats what I was waiting 2 hrs for? I ended up eating the left over chips I ve ordered for my kids, which were starving before they finally got their chips. Once I saw I got charged an extra 50 cents for an extra tomato sauce for the kids- I was happy to leave this place!
I hate to say it- but take your money and spend it somewhere else...

“A wee gem”
Reviewed 1 November 2012 via mobile

This place is great. A little crammed for my liking and in a really random place - right in the heart of an industrial area but the food is great and the service was awesome.

“Choose and grill your own gourmet meal”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

A unique and quite satisfying experience! You choose your main dish (e.g., beef steak, venison, lamb, or seafood) and it is delivered to you placed on a HOT stone slab. Your dinner sears/grills as you watch. You eat it when cooked exactly as you want! The main course is served with fresh vegetables. A delicious meal, and can be complemented by wine available from a comprehensive list of Kiwi and Aussie wines.

My generous cut of venison was a culinary delight.

Service persons Holly and Jen were pleasant and attentive.
