Excellent, popular local restaurant

Although almost full, we were "fitted in" to an extra back room, as were others. Service was attentive & charming & a very good meal, as we recall

We arrived at lunch time for a snack, but enjoyed the atmosphere and banter so much that we returned for dinner. The food and wine were very good also, but the 'vibe' was what brought us back.

This restaurant was where we had to take our meals when staying at Perry's Bridge Hollow. The breakfast buffet was very good but the dinner service from the menu was very slow and disorganised. We were a party of 15 some people had a good experience but ours was not good. The rainbow trout was very poor and they forgot... More

Arrived at the restaurant for 6 30, as they were full for our preferred time of 7.30. The staff were charming, smiley and polite but it took a while to take our orders. We had been sitting the for 2 hours before the main course arrived. Gave up on desert, as an early morning call was booked for 4.00am. The... More

We had a great time over the Christmas period we ate at restaurants all over hazyview but kuka was the best. Douglas was so outstanding that even my 4 year old still talk about him. We had our dinner on the 23 rd of December. The restaurant was full but he made us feel like we are the only ones.... More

It was my husband's birthday so my daughter's booked a table for 12 and advised the restaurant that it was a special occasion. They placed us in their private room and went out of their way to make our evening extra special. Our waitress was fantastic and extremely thorough, attending to all our needs. Everyone received what they'd ordered and... More

Live 1h30 away in the bush. Any chance to get out we come here to Kuka. The burgers, pizza, curries, sushi and atmosphere are all great! Donoven was a fantastic server, very friendly and on top of our drink refills!

Kuka sits in a small mall in Perry's Bridge. We sat at a table on the terrace (which may have been a bad choice considering how hot it was and how much noise was coming off the highway). Service was pleasant and quick - the food arrived much faster than almost any other place we ate in this area. Good... More
