Great food, we had all you can eat. Staff were nice enough, occasionally needed to call them over to ask for more of some things.

Love the food service everything about it. Especially the flame grilled pineapple. No one here in Melbourne does this. Missed the flame grilled pork and chicken hearts though!

“Rich food, poor quality, very disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Food was very rich, marinaded in spices that tried to cover up very gamey and old meat. Made me feel sick in the end just being there. Once manager found out only received excuses. Was charged full price for a meal that just aweful. Will never go there again.

Dear Aza

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your experience at the Bushfire Flame Grill. We are sorry that you did not have a good experience.

The Bushfire Flame Grill specialises in marinated skewers of meat, inspired by the Brazilian style of barbecue, that are grilled over an open flame. Our offering includes beef, pork and lamb. The Churrasco menu also includes spicy artisanal chorizo. The meat purchased for our Churrasco Menu and our A la carte steaks is of premium grade and our standards are governed by the Food Safety Programme.

Indeed, the marinades used in our meats enhance the high quality of the product and in no way "covers up" old meat as you have alleged. Since opening 6 years ago, we have hosted over 300,000 guests. Our turnover is such that our meats are quickly turned over. This means we do not have old meats as you suggest. This style of barbecue has been enjoyed by a large number of patrons dining at our restaurant.

Once again, we are sorry about your experience.
