I went with my husband for dinner at Australasia and we can't find fault with it. Just the entrance to the restaurant feels very exclusive and takes you underground to a beautifully decorated bar and restaurant, where staff are friendly and attentive. We had some delicious drinks at the bar before having our meal. The selection of wines and food... More

Underground location which is quite a novelty. The restaurant layout is modern and trendy with a relaxed ambience. Food is very well presented and all dishes were delicious. Service was efficient and attentive. Would recommend and hope to visit again soon.

Subterranean restaurants normally don't do it for me,being too noisy and claustrophobic, so I was a little nervous descending through a glass prism into the underworld. What presented itself was a warm combination of colonial club with modern touches including a weird and funky dj station. Once we got past the rather annoying and irrelevant concierge of overly thin and... More

We booked a table here for a family birthday celebration on Sunday afternoon in the Grand Pacific. We all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, and sampled the cocktails, designer beers and flavoured water. We all agreed that the presentation of the food and the attentive service we received made our dining experience into a memorable family occasion Hope to return again

I really can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We were welcomed by the general manager who was extremely friendly , professional and courteous. The table was very clean , and the staff well trained and helpful. The food was excellent, and it was the best meal I have ever had. I will certainly be going again and would... More

We visited Saturday night and for drinks, was a nice bar, indoor and outdoor seating. When busy the bar was a little hard to get to and there was little knowledge/acknowledgement from the bar staff of who was being served/who was next. The time needed to make cocktails also meant wait for drinks could be a while if you were... More

We visited this restaurant whilst in Manchester for work. The rather warm weather outside made us very appreciative of both the underground shade and the air conditioning!! Both the bar and restaurant were pleasantly busy and although we didn't have a reservation, the host found us space and we were quickly seated. The menu had a good amount of choice... More

Ive already reviewed this on a secondary acount I forgot I had, so here it is again :) I so wanted to give this place a 5-I really did. The only reason I'm knocking a point off, is when I arrived with my girlfriend a good 10-15 mins early for our reservation(which I'd booked a few weeks in advance), I... More

We went to Australasia for lunch after my graduation earlier this week. I had heard great things about the restaurant over the past three years and finally was able to experience it for myself. The service was really the reason why this review gets five stars; our waiter Isabella took care of us very well and was both relaxed and... More
