Went here for a meal and was exceptionally disappointed by the ignorance and horrific attitude of the new manager. She was rude to my group members, and had no regard for us, telling someone else in my group that we were not valid and that it didn't matter to her or her business if we never came back, which after...

We found the service to be quite poor. Disinterested in us and when it came to honouring our voucher they didn't want to. We ended up paying full price for a substandard meal. Needless to say we won't be back again.

We went back asking if we could please have a fresh one as if we wanted a reheated lasagna we would have gone to coles' freezer section. Again we were given slightly warmer lasagna. Very disappointing, as this... More

Two colleagues and I ordered 'Gourmet' pizzas. The Mediterranean Lamb one, The Chicago and a Napolitano. They gave us a complimentary garlic pizza, which was a nice gesture; however that is where the good news ceases. The pizzas were overcooked and on a dry tasteless base that had the consistency of cardboard. The toppings were sparse, basic and tasteless. The... More
