Had a friend recommend it and I have to say, one of the best Steaks I have ever tasted and the Vegtables were clean, crisp and juicy. An English Tudor Style Decor. Will be back, perhaps to taste Pancakes this time. Family run and Nero the Owner who was also waiting the tables was a delight to deal with, very attentive.

Flippin Pancakes has been a long standing restaurant in Mount Dandenong. Unfortunately it is in the land that time forgot. In need of a revamp in every way. Would love to see someone breathe some new life into this relic.

This is the first time I have been here in quite some time. I must say that I was a little disappointed. From memory it used to be much better than this. You would think being a pancake restaurant they would know how to cook pancakes. They were dry and overcooked. Wouldn't bother again. They also couldn't get the coffee... More

Had such a fabulous experience collecting our winning meal and celebrating my Mums Birthday in late October (even rated on trip advisor 5 star last review) we decided to visit again yesterday, unfortunately yesterdays experience was not as good.... has the menu changed or does it depend on the chef? Pancakes came served with what I would call a table... More

1 hour wait - no food - not busy so how did our order go missing - no real apology by the waiter that took our order - big signs don't mean anything - cobwebs - dusty - disgusting

I don't like anything about this place. From the dead plants in the planter boxes under the windows to the seriously daggy name on the faded signs to the type of food (I should have gone somewhere else really). I scraped the curry off my pancake and just ate the meat. Sparkling water makes it all the more digestible. It... More

We've been here on a few special occasions. Over the years we've seen many changes and it appears that it is not as popular now as it once used to be. The menu still has some favourites and some new additions too. The food is good and the servings are generous. The service was friendly and efficient.

Really disappointed with Flippin Pancakes. Have driven past many times and thought it looked ok. Checked out the website and it looked fantastic, super nice in fact. Unfortunately, the reality was different. Entering the place it was hot inside and smelt of greasy food. It wasn't busy and the staff didn't offer any water for the table. My youngest son... More

Combination wise disgusting . I suggest chef... More
