We booked a table for 5 at Australasia for our friends 21st birthday on 27th Jan and had a lovely evening. Starting off with amazing cocktails from the bar, oysters, a selection of small plates and mains. The maitre d behind the desk was quite snooty when we arrived, giving us a bad look and being rude when asking about... More

We visited the restaurant after a recommendation from a friend it was a great experience from the online booking to the dessert course. Great sushi and tempura. The black cod was expensive but a gorgeous dish. The atmosphere was great and the waiter friendly and helpful without being overbearing . We would visit again.

Lovely atmosphere, welcoming team of very attentive staff - then came the menu. HELP came the hell. Luckily, our waiter was on hand to guide us through the adventure and he did so very professionally. With a selection of 8 dishes, our culinary adventure began. WOW - hold on tight, an explosion of great dishes, great flavours and fantastic presentation.... More

OK, where do I start? I used to come here every other weekend for the cocktails which I always thought were delicious; so after arriving in the city from a business trip I thought I would go to Australasia for a spot of lunch and a couple of cocktails. I wish I hadn't bothered. I was on the phone to... More

I chose Australasia for a lazy afternoon lunch with some friends. I've eaten here a number of times and it is a bit of a favourite of mine. I particularly love the comfy seats and the food is always great. This visit was no exception and I passed a very pleasant afternoon, eating, drinking and chatting. The service is generally... More
