Arrogant staff and rude service. Give this place a big miss.

Over priced and poor value.

Avoid at all costs.

I accidentally ordered food here from UberEats when I was drunk without realising it was a vegetarian joint due to it being only noted in the small print. Why call a burger a 'veg beef patty'? Why throw the word 'beef' in there? I enjoy oxymorons in extended acclaimed prose in novels, not on menus for fast food burger joints. Trickery and cunning deception aside, the order arrived in reasonable time and when I opened up the bag I was happy to note there was a nice weight to the food. Sadly this is where the happiness ended as when I bit down into the burger it dawned on me that I had made a terrible and costly mistake. To put it bluntly this was more Michelin tyre than Michelin star. The texture was of a depressing rubber and you could taste sanctimoniousness seeping into the soggy burger bun. It was the sort of texture you get when you microwave 4 day old food from your fridge when you have nothing else in the house to eat. Please learn from my mistakes and don't do what I did. It did nothing to satiate my drunken appetite. If I wanted a vegetarian burger I'd order a mushroom and halloumi burger rather than a mock 'beef' burger that should be returned back to the frozen section of Coles where it came from. Right now I simply feel lied to. This fast food joint is an insult to William Golding's novel from which it derives its title. Rest assured I won't be coming again!

On a trip to Melbourne from Queensland and I am so jealous. Great to be able to just walk in and order anything as a vegetarian. Food was impeccable and service fast and friendly. Come to Queensland soon!!!!
