Yes this place is pricey, so do not go if you are hoping for quantity and bargains - go if you want beautiful, delicious food and a fabulous experience.

Just can't praise the staff here enough for the excellent standard, attentiveness and front of house understanding of customer needs. Well worth a visit particularly for a long relaxing lunch as we did. We were served by the lovely Sonia who was quite simply the jewel in their crown. Great male bar staff (who's name escapes me sorry) making fabulous... More

The whole experience was amazing! I can't fault a single thing! Fantastic place. Don't go or I won't be able to get a table next time. 😉

We've tried to get a table at Australasia on our previous trips to Manchester but never been successful, so was delighted on our most recent trip to get a table. We arrived and were shown to our table - which was one of the four booths out of the way and fairly private which we really liked. Our waitress Siobhan... More

Been several times. Good food, always excellent service. Plenty of privacy. Very trendy and often see celebs here. Not over priced and always ask for recommendations from the menu. Relaxed and never hurried. Good for a special night out - great cocktails at the bar.

The food is excellent with a good mix of food with sushi, hot dishes and meat dishes. All the food I had was wonderful but the blackened cod was the best dish. The restaurant also has a great atmosphere. I definitely recommend it.

Booked this restaurant for a birthday surprise, was difficult to find it as it is underground! However, when we did find it was pleasantly surprised by the decor, very pleasant surroundings. Had a cocktail to start, then was shown to our table in a separate booth area. The waitress wasn't very genuine, the menu looked good, however expensive. The food... More

Last weekend my daughter wanted to try this Restaurant and could not get in for Dinner so we decided to try Lunch. This was a Sunday and the place was 1/4 full. However, service and food was excellent and the quantities for Sushi and Sashimi were excellent for the price. We loved everything that was delivered. We did not have... More
