Never a bad meal here - visited a number of times during my 3 years in Loughborough. Particularly recommend the kangaroo burger! Always friendly and attentive staff also. Will definitely be back for years to come!

I went there last Thursday 20/8/15. I had a fantastic time, great atmosphere, lovely staff, our waitress Olivia was more than helpful, always with a smile on her face. Me and my wife can not wait to go back again, the food was top notch. We eat out quite a lot and this is honestly one of the best restaurants... More

Visited Moomba on a Tuesday at half 7, not a problem getting a table although we did book prior to going anyway on their website. Seated pretty quickly and the staff were very friendly and chatty although we did have two of them asking whether we would like to order our drinks/mains etc as neither of them had realized the...

I went on a hot Saturday night and was happy to find that the two of us could get a decent table, in one of their 'booths', usually reserved for four. Loughborough was quite quiet in most bars and so I can't judge whether the fact that Moomba was only half full at about eight o'clock was typical. The service... More

As a reglar visitor to Loughborough, Moomba was always an option, and last night, I went for it. Friday evening, so I arrived really early: only four table were occupied. As a solo diner, I was put on the (frighteningly creaky and distant) balcony. The waitress told me to "signal" when I wanted to order. Semaphore? SMS? Shouting? I have... More

Had a very enjoyable meal - the food was amazing, but it did take a very long time to be served. Even things such as asking for a glass of water took a very long time to come. Luckily had a great meal and good company, but wouldn't eat here if I had other plans for the evening! Definitely worth... More
