Great food, slow service

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... read more

Informal and fun atmosphere. Staff are great fun which I always look for as part of the experience when eating out. We had Wagyu burgers for the first time. I've had Japanese Wagyu steak a few times which is the probably the most expensive steak you can buy and well worth the treat on a special occasion. These burgers at... More

Tried this place last night because we fancied something different. From the minute we walked in we felt welcome by the staff, our waitress Annie was extremely helpful and never stopped smiling all night. The food was amazing, we had a sharing starter and a mezze all of which was gorgeous then between us we had beef, kangaroo, chicken and... More

Having been told that the food was very enjoyable I decided to try it for myself. I arrived on spec and was seated straight away. The menu selection was rather limlted but what I ordered was served very quickly and the quality of the food was very good. The prices are average for the area and based on my experience... More

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

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 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.
