We had a fun night, but I can't say I thought the Kangaroo Burger really put a spring in my step. The taste, although nice enough, seemed more beefy than bouncy so a little disappointed really. Having hoped for a bit of a taste sensation, it was a bit of a let down. That said, this place is welcoming and... More

My wife and I work in Loughborough and have been to Moomba on a number of occasions. It's probably our favourite restaurant in town. The staff are always really welcoming, friendly and efficient. The food is always amazing and changes every few months. They have great special offers and promotions which make eating there even better. Even at full price... More

I finally gave this place a go after resisting it for the longest time because I thought it would just be another aussie steakhouse. I was wrong. The menu is different from the typical aussie steakhouse. 'Exotic' fares are on the menu and they actually taste pretty good. Worth a visit if you happen to be in Loughborough.

Moomba is great if you want to try some australian food, and a good restaurant to take the parents to when they visit (and I think there are quite a few other students who do too!). Their menu changes by season, and they have a good selection of cocktails and juices, as well as local Loughborough beers. Shall go back... More

Atmosphere was warm and friendly and my eldest son thought the pulled pork damper burger was fantastic the best ever ! Would... More

We ate here for valentines night and after looking forward to our meal found the experience rather disappointing although the food was good it was more of a lunchtime type feel, our table was poorly positioned, no music, limited menu with no appealing specials and felt slightly rushed, waitress not particularly friendly. This could may well have just been an... More

A buzzy place. We had good service and the range of beer appealed to my family: As did the cocktail mixes. We enjoyed the mix of meat choice and all tried the Kangaroo!

Went here last night with my husband,son and his girlfriend. Cannot praise highly enough, from the most cheerful, helpful staff I have ever encountered in a restaurant, to the fantastic food which was truly mouthwatering. An amazing atmosphere, an absolute gem of a restaurant and I had no hesitation in selecting the 15% tip option when paying. Thank you for... More
