Fantastic!!

This must be one of the best restaurants in the UK. I like the elegant but relaxed atmosphere. Great quality ingredients and food with attentive service. Getting table at the weekend of a bit of a nightmare at this very popular place. We booked our table more than 2 months ahead but only managed to... read more

This must be one of the best restaurants in the UK. I like the elegant but relaxed atmosphere. Great quality ingredients and food with attentive service. Getting table at the weekend of a bit of a nightmare at this very popular place. We booked our table more than 2 months ahead but only managed to get a table mid -afternoon.

I have tried Australasia tapas bar upstairs on numerous occasions before and was totally unaware that there's another restaurant downstairs. The menu is similar, but has a couple extra items. The atmosphere is warm and very Aussie :) Beautiful design and super comfortable booths! Absolutely love it, haven't had a dish yet that I didn't love.

The whole experience was fantastic! beautifully presented restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. The food is superb, I can highly recommend the Teryaki beef! the restaurant also presented us with a special desert for my sisters graduation. I will most certainly be returning for our next special occasion!

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner in February. It's one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The food was outstanding and it was exactly how we wanted to dine. If you go down the tapas route (definitely the best way to go) they bring the food out as it is ready, so you always have... More

We came here after my graduation ceremony with no booking as we weren't sure what were going to do that evening. We were told to wait 30 minutes for a table for 4 but were seated within 15-20, which was nice. We had not been here before so the staff helped us with the menu and told us how many... More

Used to be a great place for Sushi/Sashimi but it's gone off the boil a bit, which is a shame as the venue is quite spectacular and a buzzy Fri/Sat night place for a fun evening. It's not terrible just not as great as it was when it opened and lots of popular cocktails are coming out of pre-made mixes.... More

From the 'bouncers' at the entrance, to the loud techno music, to the young staff and clientele: Everything about Australasia reminds me of a nightclub. Except for the food. And to start with the most important issue at a restaurant: Food is OK. Not bad, not great. Completely average. What stops them from getting an OK review is the appallingly... More

Visited just last week, were do I start?!! We had a small wait for the table around 30minutes... But it was worth the wait! The atmosphere, decor and design, vibe, music, staff, service and of course the food and drink! Amazing!!! We ordered some cocktails and decided to dine tapas style- Sushi, lamb, chicken, tempura veg, fillet steak and sweet... More
