We had a great meal here on the last night of our visit - it is expensive however the flavours were good and the meals came out in good time. Make sure you book ahead.

We ate three times at this restaurant and enjoyed it all. We ordered the oysters and the kangaroo mignon. Both Perfect. Our Waiting staff were great. Reese was good fun. And Nicole and Albert were excellent as well. It is nice when everyone appears to be working together and liking what they do.

This was our breakfast buffet stop every morning of our visit. Ample choices for young kids, and staff was so friendly. Cooked to order items are also available. No waiting!

The staff at the Ayres Rock resort are fantastic. Professional, efficient yet friendly and welcoming. The meals at Arnguli Grill are tasty, well sized and quite well priced giving the location in the middle on nowhere!

It was my sister an my last night in the NT and it could have been anymore incredible. Our waiter Sandipan was attentive and helpful at every stage of our meal.

The staff were very friendly and courteous. We had the steak and it was cooked to perfection along with the side dishes. The prices seemed a bit high but considering the remote location it was all relative. Would recommend for couples but probably not a family restaurant.

The decor of Arnguli is quite basic with white table clothes. Beautiful aboriginal paintings are hung around the walls. Menu offers a wide selection but the main attraction is grill meat. The steak I had was cooked to my liking. The lamb racks were cooked pink. These meats were served with generous vegetables and sauce/jus to go with the meat.... More

There is an effort for creative combination of taste. I liked the porterhouse steak ( which felt like a big fillet mignon ) but not the black Angus fillet which was pretty dry and tasteless. The fish soup was great however. Would probably focus on seafood if i go there again.

My experience at Arnguli grill was "very nice". From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with a smile and shown to our table. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, very tasty and well presented. I had the scotch fillet steak which was cooked perfectly. Each of the four members of our party said their... More
