Had an absolutely amazing 24th birthday party here yesterday. Thank you so much. They seriously looked after everything - from photography, to bringing out the cake + serving it, to assisting with special requests i.e. have mains served by 9pm. All I had to do was enjoy the night!! Highly recommended. Fantastic customer service making my birthday extremely memorable. THANK... More

We had a nice meal for 5 people as a small birthday party today. We all had the banquet meal from the menu. Meal was excellent value and was too much for us. Excellent taste and value. the wine we had was also nice with a good choice at reasonable restaurant prices. Good coffee at the end.

As a group of eight we enjoyed the share platters. The quality of the food and the presentation was outstanding. The service and easy parking at the rear of the resturant makes this resturant a stand out in Parramatta.

We recently dined here with a large group for a friends 30th birthday on a Friday night. Overall we had a good dining experience but from our experience its probably catered for larger groups (at least on the weekend) rather than a romantic dinner, as it was quite noisy and the alcohol was definitely flowing at our table and those...

From the moment the host met us we had great service. The food then started to arrive and it was all fantastic-we had decided to order the banquet for 2 and were encouraged to try a few of the yummy starters. The only downside was that we wished that we could have taken the leftovers home but they had no... More

13 business colleagues and I had a group dinner here. The banquet served was delicious and the service friendly and attentive. Make sure you leave room for desert. A separate function room is also available, although we had a couple of tables in the main restaurant.
