We visited with family and friends for my big birthday and were not disappointed. I haven't eaten at Australasia for over a year but food quality, cocktails and service were on point. The small plates of Tempura prawns, scallops with pork, teriyaki beef and goats cheese with beetroot were really tasty, with the prawns my favourite. My teenage son said... More

I came as a valentines treat with my partner and the whole evening was lovely due to great service and amazing food. We were seated in our own little section of the restaurant, which was lovely and felt special. The seats were incredibly cosy and comfy and I loved the chilled out idea. The waitress was very attentive and excellent... More

Should never pay £66 just for two main courses and have to go and get a sandwich afterwards!! Heard excellent reviews about this place , but obviously some people don't mind taking out a loan for a 1/5 of a chicken breast some sauce and half a carrot. Very disappointing and extremely overrated. Was quite upset that i'd saved up... More

I ate dinner here with some work colleagues who were over in the UK from Germany. The restaurant is upmarket but not over the top pricing. The atmosphere is good and lively. The food was also of a high standard and our waitress looked after us very well. I will return with my family as it definitely impressed me.

Every time we've called in it's been very busy. We've eaten here once and the food was good but you need to book in advance. Normally we just have a couple of drinks before moving on. It's sometimes difficult to get served at the bar as it's so busy and more often than not it's standing room only unless you're... More

Our waiter Greg was absolute wonderful. The food was perfect in it's presentation and it's taste. I was returning to Canada just 3 days after this incredible experience and I was trying to get in here again before I had to leave Manchester. Sadly I wasn't able to return. Next visit this restaurant will be my first dining out location.... More
