“Poor atmosphere, OK food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is the only Austrian, German, Switzerland, Hungarian restaurant I have ever been to, lots Schnitzel, they do this strange grated potato side dish with a lot of there meals in place of mash potatoes, I may have liked that more if the potatoes where cooked more. It could be the greatest Austrian, German, Switzerland, Hungarian food in the world for all I know, but I'm not a big fan, the decor is not great its clean and presentable, its just you can make a cheep wooden table look nice or you can make it look like it was temporarily set up for a german beer festival, maybe thats what they are going for. Can't complain about the price.

“Una's different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We went to Una's from another persons recomendation and it was worth the trip.
The service is fast and very friendly and the prices were reasonable.
We shared their special which was Hotdog and Sauerkraut $10, Una's Goulash Beef, with Spätzle (Austrian Noodle) $17.90, the kids had a Chicken Schnitzel sandwich and Chicken Schnitzel with Rösti & Cabbage Salad $19.40. Try the Almdudler (Australian Lemonade)
4.00 Its lovely!
The portions are huge but I noticed another table of diners managed to polish theirs off.
Decor is a talking point, parking fo the car is a bother.
Definitely recommend.

“High expectations had based on word of mouth but sadly disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Visited Una's with a friend visiting from interstate. We had always wanted to go based on what friends had told us so seized the opportunity when we could. Food serving size was generous but the food was overcooked, dry and rubbery. Pork knuckle could have bounced off the walls, schnitzel needed a hack saw to get through...salmon could have been the saviour but was unevenly cooked throughout the fillet. The rosti could be accused of causing an oil spill if it ever decided to go for a splash in the ocean. The service by the younger staff was good but the older staff seemed like they got out of the wrong side of bed.
Seemed cheap and tacky...good if you visit when you are already a bit pissy I suppose!

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Awesome potato Roesti came with my bacon and eggs - hold the eggs and my partners scrambled eggs. The portions were generous - the toast came separately so nothing was soggy. We asked for coffee first and everything came quickly.
