A nice change

My boyfriend and I visited here a few weeks back and really enjoyed it. The food and service was all really good and, having never tried Australian food before, it made a nice change to try something new!

We have been regular customers here since it first opened. What was good in the beginning was the varied menu choices. Sadly, the specials menu is now a very limited one compared to before. Also, they always had 'crispy pork' and mash that really was to die for - and now never seems to be on offer. In fact, haven't... More

We visited for the first time on a week night! Starters were not very tasty - quite bland actually. They tasted more like what you may receive at a cheap pub. We were very excited about the kangaroo for mains! When it arrived - it was very tough - we couldn't even cut into it let alone chew it. When... More

We visited Moomba as a group of friends from work. The staff greeted us warmly. The service was just great and the food was delicious, cooked to perfection, and presented beautifully on the plate. The level of customer care was second to none, and would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to anyone.

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
