“Frozen bread would have been better than this”
Review of Bistro Bunya

Reviewed 13 June 2014

The worst dining experience 5 adults have ever experienced. Oysters Kilpatrick had burnt bacon and what tasted like plum sauce out of a bottle. It seemed as though they were microwaved. For $32 we weren't impressed! Soup was not hot and served with cold, burnt bread cooked on the grill and was served with a fork. Meatlovers pizza was garnished with coriander and a lot of it. Not many people like coriander and it definitely should not be on a meat lovers pizza! A difference of taste according to the wait staff... Curries were salty salty salty! One person had two mouthfuls of their thai green curry and it was so Inedible they couldn't eat it. Wait staff were pleasant but had no idea how to deal with complaints. AVOID! Have dinner anywhere else in maleny- we should have read the previous reviews.

45 minutes wait for a cold roast pork dinner that was chewier than my boots, epitomises what you can expect from this bistro. Simply find another restaurant when you visit Maleny!! Would I go back - not unless the staff and management of the hotel change.

This is the worst meal i have had the misfortune to be served, the fish tasted like dirty river. I managed to choke down one mouthful before deciding to pop to the woolies next doors and get some crackers.
My partners steak tasted rancid and the bacon was off colour, the salad was more like a mis-mash of garden clippings. This shouldnt be served to animals.
The staff were unaware of customer service do's and don'ts, it seemed the till was something no one in the place knew how to work.
Please dont waste your time or money

My wife and I had dinner tonight in the bistro - fish and chips and butter chicken. It was the best butter chicken that I can ever recall having and the fish was great too. The chef apparently used to run the Indian restaurant in town - everybody seemed to enjoy their meal. The staff wee all friendly, chatty and attentive. I recommend the Bistro Bunya

We called in for lunch. Its a bit dingy inside but the restaurant looked OK. Ordered Fish & Chips - not a difficult dish - but it came without condiments so I asked for salt and vinegar; the salt arrived but a small capsule of vinegar would cost me another 3 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Haven't been back since.
