Australasia is an incredible place when you're looking for a special meal. The setting and decor is beautiful, and the sushi is second to none. I went with family for my birthday and had the sashimi, which comes out served on a 'boat' of ice. The presentation is stunning and they even freshly grate wasabi for you. The tempura items... More

We experienced average food at above average prices £80 without wine. The restaurant is beautiful and we were excited to taste from the extensive menu, unfortunately our meals did not deliver. Not one of the 6 dishes we selected had the wow factor, they had stunning presentation and looked impressive however that's where the complements end. Each one was less... More

This was a very good visit. Firstly the owners have paid a great deal of attention to the look of the restaurant and the service offered by the staff, of whom there are plenty. However it is the food that is the mainstay of any restaurant. Me and other half went for the plates idea and had 3 each. All... More

The location down a stairway may not suit everyone especially after a few drinks however the ambience of the bar area is really funky. I loved the decor and the music and the bar staff were very attentive. The food on the set menu was sparse to say the least, what was served wasnt my kind of thing at all.... More

A friend and I ate dinner here and had an enjoyable evening. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. The service was friendly, efficient and interesting. They give you an iPad with the wine list on it so you can search by grape, region, etc. Never seen that before. The normal menu is a mix of sushi and a variety of small... More

Recently visited here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. As he works abroad I wanted to make it that but special and was recommended Australasia by a friend who is a regular. I expected to pay a bit for it but it was very much worth the money. Firstly they rang me on the day to confirm my reservation as I... More

First time eating here. Was a bit worried about having to have the set menu (tables of a certain number must have the set menu) but I needn't have worried. The food was superb. I was impressed by the selection of non-alcoholic cocktails on offer. Already booked again to go with just my husband to explore the rest of the... More

Quite simply. Truly fabulous food, a wonderful decadent atmosphere. I could write pages and pages about this restaurant, but I wouldn't do it justice, you have to try for yourself. It's not a place to eat every week as it can be pricey but if you have a special occasion coming up, please go! We been a few times now,... More

I was taken here by my son and his wife for a special birthday dinner. It was a birthday with an 'O' at the end and I had requested somewhere 'buzzy' for someone whose age is only a number. I was not disappointed. I had walked past the entrance to the restaurant many times and never realised what the funny... More
