Great food and good service

Recently went to Matchbox with a group of 6 friends for dinner. We made reservations in advance, which is a must, and we brought wine that we purchased from Swirl and Sip ($25 minimum, but can be more than 1 bottle - cannot bring more than 2 into Matchbox for the waived corkage fee).

Impeccable service, delicious foods, and a wide array of drinks and desserts. Not a cheap meal, but a consistently good one.

Somewhat a favorite for our kids but narrow in what we like for Pizza. Thin crust that is cooked in very hot oven, so it is overdone to us. Lots of pepperoni on what we got but again cooked hot so toppings get dried out. Quite expensive for a Pizza place.

The restaurant has an extensive menu that would satisfy many tastes. It works for dinner before the Mosaic movie theater next door, but also other casual occasion. It's noisy though.

So I had lunch at Matchbox about a month ago and it was good. I met a colleague there for lunch and business. The overall atmosphere and decor is very warm and new. Nice spacious dining room and plenty of seating at the bar. Nice welcome from the hosts and decent service. I had the fried chicken sandwich and crab... More

A large restaurant with seating outside - or indoors in the aircon. We chose indoors as it was hot outside. Friendly welcome and a good selection on the menu. Some yummy food especially desserts! I had crispy chicken with garlic mash followed by chocolate brownie with ice cream - and some coffee of course.

The first thing one is going to notice when entering the place is its wooden decor. Everything is wooden incl the menu cards. This definitely bowls you over & I instantly fell into love with the decor & wooden theme of the place. Forgot to add that we have to wait almost 45 min on a Monday evening. So once... More

We have come to this place since day one and always love the food and service. Pizza is their specialty but try all the entrees which we have and we haven't found anything we didn't like. The sliders are amazing
