“FAR from the "best pies in Australia", more like an average Australian pie!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

It is interesting reading the other reviews, all I can think is that these people really haven't had that many meat pies in their time.
These pie are far from the "best pie in Australia". At best they are average...GLUGGY, GLUGGY, GLUGGY over thickens glue like sauce...with little flavour and way too much pastry.
They really are no better than what you would purchase at your local bakery, and even that is being over generous.
I would advise you to save your money and buy one of the supermarket branded pie...really same quality at half the cost.
Big thumbs down!

“Very good pies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

Tinnies now has a shop front in Launceston city. The scollop pie I had was oversize compared to most other pies but was packed with scollop meat.
Will be going back later in the week.

“Great Pies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We had great pies on our way to Burnie late on a Saturday afternoon. Pie range was limited but then it was around an hour before closing for the weekend.
I had the roast lamb and my wife the Penang curry pie and they were fabulous! Nice chunks of very tender meat and a lovely and light pastry!

“Best Pies in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

These are absolutely the best pies in Australia. The curry scallop pie and the green Thai curry pie are out of this world! Scrumptious! Their fruit pies are equally good, especially the apricot. We went to the Tinnies at 65 Kingsway in the CBD and had a lovely time. I wish they had these pies in the USA!
