“An overall good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Decided to drop in for a meal on a Tuesday night after work. Didn't have a reservation but that was no problem. Good selection of really nice meals, something to suit everyone. I had the Thai Beef Salad and it was divine!!

Service was a tiny bit slow and not overly cheerful but pleasant nonetheless.

Overall, a very good meal. Very well priced, only cost us $75 for three meals and three alcoholic drinks. Would highly recommend for a casual night out.

“Nice Smoothies and Frappes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Grind seems a popular hangout and I have to say the nutshell smoothie is really nice.

I like the extra touch of shaved chocolate on a capp and the coffee is always good.

My main concern is the service at the cafe. Many times friends and I have sat waiting for someone to take our order but it often seems understaffed of the staff are not really concerned. You also rarly get a follow up at your table to ensure everything is correct and ask if you would like anything else.

I think little things in service can make a big difference to people experience.

“Time to step up to the mark!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

Located in the city centre of Newcastle, on a street full of nice cafes & restaurants, Grind doesn't excel! Despite its extensive menu, the food lacks flavour; breakfast was average, nothing to rave about!
