Great food, fabulous atmosphere! It's not cheap but worth it! Food is Asian/ pacific tapas but full of flavour and unusual choices, a taste sensation.

Went to Australasia a few weeks ago. What a great place. It has a very unusual entrance, but when you get downstairs, it is very welcoming indeed. As you would expect, the food was exceptional, service very good. You get the drinks menu on an iPad, which is a bit flash and probably unnecessary, but good all the same! Cocktails... More

We ordered four small dishes intending to look again later at the menu for two main courses. The smaller dishes were excellent including soft shelled crab with a courgette flower - so good that we decided to order two more rather than main courses. The steak skewers were wonderfully smokey but also tender. Chicken like toffee apples. Everything was to... More

Went for a different work lunch to this venue having heard about it. Had the 3 choice tapas menu and a sharing plate with the 4 of us, the service was prompt and happy, the food arrived in good speed and was all very fresh, they did forget one dish which when pointed out was delivered promptly and not charged...

I was prepared for an overhyped, trendy restaurant that would cost a lot and disappoint. I was extremely pleased to find attentive and excellent service, very good food and perfectly reasonable prices. Really enjoyable. I look forward to going back.

I went to Australasia to celebrate my friends 40th for a special treat and we were not disappointed. Every detail of Australasia had clearly been thought through and planned to the finest detail. The decor, ambiance, staff and most importantly the food are all first class. I reviewed the menu before I went and was confused, but after it was... More

All the family love dining here - which is no mean feat! The service and the quality of the food has been consistently high since we first started dining here shortly after it opened. We will be back soon.

The food was lovely especially the popcorn ice cream but it was very expensive. The atmosphere was very nice but we were part of a larger group and found it difficult to converse with everyone except the people next to you.

Great food and atmosphere. Wouldn't go every day as it's more of a special occasion place (mostly due to the price!)

Beautiful decor, delicious food, posh but friendly. Quite expensive but worth it for a special occasion. I pad was a nice touch to look at cocktails & wine list. Our table had a good view of the kitchen. Free birthday dessert was a nice finishing touch.
