Service was bad.. The 15 year old kids on school holidays just don't cut it for front of house service.. Even the other staff are very inexperienced.. The prawn skewers were nice but nothing else.. Place is dirty, overpriced and very bad lighting.. Sigh...

The food we had on Friday night was without a doubt the worst food we have ever paid for. I ordered pork belly which was as dry as an old boot and quite possibly a few days old sitting on limp lettuce covered in a powder of some sort. ABSOLUTELY no flavour. My husband ordered spare ribs that looked and tasted as though they had been sitting on the kitchen bench all day. Dry and tasteless half covered with Fountain BBQ sauce which itself was dried out and claggy.

We went across the road to another restaurant for tea and coffee, others appeared to have done the same.

Very disappointing - wont go back.

Absolutely disgusting! Poor service, terrible food and the kitchen staff were swearing at the top of their voice because we complained!! We had been here on a number of occasions before, but following our latest experience, Never again.

I cannot believe that the meat dishes are over $20 and still the portion size of a dish you'd expect to pay $10 for. The atmosphere is non-existent. Worst restaurant in Newcastle. By a long way. Can't think of a positive.
