This building must be cursed nothing survives here. It's now a Rashay's but it's horrid! It took 20 minutes to be seated with a reservation. From the moment we sat down we were made to feel as if they just wanted us out. Half way through eating our entree our mains came I had to ask them to go away... More

This has been renamed Bonfire Grill. Took some people from work for lunch. Nothing has changed from what it was previously. Same drab interior and same slow service. Lots of other quality places I would recommend prior to going there again.

We had never eaten at Vaby's before, but had a voucher from the Entertainment Book for one free main meal, and as we liked the look of the online menu, decided to drive to Penrith to try it out. We arrived just after 6.00pm tonight (Saturday), and were shown immediately to a table and given menus. The waiting staff were... More

I have travelled all around the world and have eaten in many restaurants, never have I come across such an abhorrent so called "Owner" of a restaurant as Vaby's Penrith, this man was so alien and unlikable as to arouse antagonism and aversion, he was repugnant and very insulting to say the least. We went there for lunch today and... More
