Perfect place to celebrate a special ocassion. Very friendly but professional staff sorted our booking and took us straight to our seats. The restaurant decor was clean and beautiful and our waiter was superb. We had a few small sushi plates to share then for mains the lamb which was interesting. The presentation of the meal was also very good.... More

The decor is modern, the atmosphere calm and friendly. We had a wonderful dinner of sashimi, sushi, teriyaki beef, popcorn shrimp, and duck salad. The food was delectable and the service impeccable. The only negative, if I may, was that when we had a drink at the bar first, the counter smelled odd (off putting - fishy?). Or maybe it... More

Our fourth visit but this time with friends who had never been before. The cocktails, food and wine were fantastic. Service was a little slow to start but this didn't affect our evening. It's certainly not a cheap night out but worth it for a special occasion. We will be trying to think of another special occasion so we can... More

Wow. What can I say. My standards are very high and I very rarely use the word 'perfect' when it comes to eating out, but Australasia have really achieved just that . I booked this place at the end of December when I found out it serves Halal meat, to celebrate the end of another hard working but successful year.... More

6 girlfriends and I went to Grand Pacific for Afternoon Tea for a birthday. They were very patient as one friend was late, they were also very friendly and accommodating. First course with Australian 'champagne' was great - sushi, very tasty Asian salad and fresh wasabi prepared at the table. Second course of cakes were also delicious and slightly different... More

I organised a meal out last night 30th January 2016 for my son's 18th Birthday and we were very dissappointed in the whole set up of the restaurant. I booked it back in October and requested a booth and being told they can't guarantee this but it should not be a problem as I was the first booked in for... More

We went out as a foursome and decided on two doing the sharing of starter / mains and the other 2 doing the more traditional 1 main and 1 starter each. The food was scheduled to come out perfectly and the chefs / waitress brought the dishes which complemented each other at the right time! 1 bottle of wine, 2... More
