This is a beautiful and surprisingly wonderful experience. Dinner was delicious and presented as well as many big city restaurants. Relax at your table over white linens and candlelight. The oysters wasabi were excellent as was the red snapper. The staff was very attentive. This was a wonderful evening worth every penny.

We had the best waiter, very friendly and knowledgeable. A nice variety of food but very expensive. I paid $55 for a steak and bok choi. Some wild food options, though not as many as we expected.

It is such a pity that Arnguli Grill isn't located at Sails in the Desert, given it's ambience and food quality. Our 2 dinners here were both excellent.The fish, pork and steak were all cooked to perfection and came with gorgeous fresh vegetables. My husband's dessert apparently tasted as good as it looked too.

If you enjoy steak then this is definitely the place. Wine is well priced and the service is excellent.

The staff are very efficient and personable and the menu is quite varied. The salmon with pistachios and the fillet steak were excellent. It is a little bit on the expensive side, but it's a good restaurant in a very special place. Having a table near the window overlooking the garden and pool would be best

The salmon entrée was wonderful....also the authentic Australian pate' they give with the bread at the start was delicious! My husband had the tenderloin and really enjoyed it. Make sure you eat it all because they do not allow take out boxes (I think because of all the bugs, etc in the desert and they don't want creepy crawleys in... More

Booked to eat in Arnguli on our first night at Ayers Rock Desert as it was the main restaurant in the Desert Gardens where we were staying. What a feast. Both started with the Tastes of Australia plate which included four tiny tastes of Aussie meats. Started with a crocodile skewer (bit like a tough chicken, pleased to have tried... More
