Located at the centre of the Jetty strip you'll find The Crying Tiger. A upmarket restaurant with athmosphere to boot, spacious tables with a very sophisticating menu. If you want to impress your visitors then look no further .

Two colleagues and I ate here recently. We all enjoyed our food btu was told that they weren't serving alcohol at the moment.... how about telling us before we sit down so we can go to the bottle shop..... and then you hit us with the corkage. Picture of the soft shell crab on the menu is nice but they... More

We rang and booked at the last minute for a family group of seven. They took our booking but when we arrived they didn't seem to want us there. We were led to a table before the waitress told us that the deep fryer wasn't working so there were no deep fried entrees. My daughter only eats the satay chicken... More

We were looking forward to dining at this restaurant but it became apparent, when reading the menu, that it was not special with the dishes being run of the mill Thai fare available in any Thai Cafe but at expensive prices.There was little to suggest Thai and Vietnamese street food that was promoted by the establishment. The real killer however... More

Was really looking forward to having dinner here and the menu, while fairly standard and basic, did cover all the bases. Unfortunately it didn't live up to initial thoughts. Service was very haphazard and sketchy with staff seemingly unable to handle a fairly busy Tuesday night trade. There was a distinct lack of care for customers. And to the food....it... More

We went to this restaurant with a baby and toddler. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. Great food. Try the fried rice!
