Went to Sunaraas with some friends from work, fantastic location, great views out of the big windows.. Get a table by the window! Food was great! I had the lamb rack which was cooked perfectly, price a little high but still quite good for Alice. I must say our waitress is in need some some customer service lessons, she was... More

For the remoteness of Alice Springs, this restaurant serves very fresh seafood and vegetables. Not sure if the food would win any awards in Sydney, but in Alice, Sunaraas is a must stop in for a nice meal in Alice Springs.

My work mates and I chose the Christmas buffet for our Christmas breakup. The staff weren't great, they forgot to bring out the cheese platters until after we had all eaten. The food was okay, I was very surprised that there was no gravy to go with the roast meats. The desserts were fantastic!! The restaurant is quite beautiful.

Great views, good food, a little disorganised and flustered staff. Nice spot for pre dinner drink and wind down.

Went here for a birthday dinner. The service is reasonable although a little slow for how dead it was. There were six of us on my table and only 2 other couples dining, I think we waited about 30minutes or so for our food. However the drinks and food were good. I enjoyed the pork chop but the pork was... More

Hadn't been to the restaurant for a number of years and was pleasantly surprised. The meal was cooked to perfection, the staff were helpful and the atmosphere was great. This was helped with the live music, not a regular occurrence, they had been hired for a birthday party. Apart from the fact they had no coffee the experience very nice,... More

Dined here with work colleagues. 5 of 7 meals were extremely salty and when a polite comment was made to management we had a very rude response. After tasting one of the meals she said that she yes it was salty but palatable... and surely all our meals weren't salty and that we were'feeding off each other'. Worst restaurant experience...

I have just had the most bizarre experience. 5 out of the seven meals we ordered were not edible as they were extremely salty. When we spoke politely to the manager she said she would taste it and if it was to her liking it would be deemed fine. Terrible food. We were basically told it was our problem. Don't... More

This restaurant has got a bit of a dubious reputation among locals in Alice. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal, presentation and service, when we went for dinner this week. To top it off, the view is great looking across to the ranges as the sun goes down. At $106 for two including drinks it wasnt... More

Sunaaras is a great restaurant with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere right beside the MacDonnall Ranges. The food is a mixture from indonesian and australian cuisine and is absolutely delicous. My all time favorite is the lamb curry. It is the best curry I ever had. I would totally recommend Sunaraas. Lovely Staff as well as super delicious food.
