I've been wanting to try this place for a long time now after lots of good feedback from people. The place is beautifully presented and has a lovely vibe and ambience, reminding me of a lot of venues in Bali. They have definitely replicated the Australian vibe to a T. The food was amazing especially the sushi as a starter... More

The restaurant is beautifully presented with a separate bar area and some interesting booth areas for up to 4 diners. The serving staff were all very professional and helpful. We shared a number of small plates which allowed us to sample dishes we might otherwise not have tried, alongside some old favourites. All the food looked and tasted fabulous. The... More

Food was awesome...not unexpected for the price...the service from bar staff and our waitress angele was faultless as expected...but was unexpected was the level that chloe went to, to ensure our needs were met. She did what I asked (clean cutlery and plates) but then when I asked for mayonnaise and I said chilli brought me both kinds instinctively knowing... More

This place has a great décor; however, it must be stuck in the distant past of heydays of “nouvelle cuisine”. Extortionate pricing and tiny portions. Nice and helpful waiters though. Having paid the exceptionally large bill and still feeling hungry, on the way out I got chased by the manager who demanded that we pay the bill, again. He did... More

This really is a consistently good venue if a tad expensive if u add the cocktails & beers.Table is never ready though & I wonder if this is a ploy to make you spend more when you see those delicious cocktails ? I still think if a table isn't ready a complimentary beverage is the right way to go but... More

The restaurant is quite contemporary based underground. The food was superb with a great range of very unusual dishes. Sushi, sashimi and lots of cooked dishes. The Cambodian beef skewers, chicken satay skewers and the duck rolls amongst my favourites. Very attentive waiter, good choice of wines and and extensive cocktail menu. Lots of people just in there for cocktails.... More

First time at Australasia and enjoyed a beautiful meal, we will certainly be returning. - Australasia is an stunning place inside & out, you can enter via the double doors in the glass triangle or from upstairs near Mulberry. - Inside was rather quiet at first as we arrived early on, within an hour or so the place was buzzing...
