We arrived at the restaurant at 7.30pm with no booking. The staff were extremely accommodating & found us a table by 8pm. It was a set Xmas menu - Adult $145 & children $18. (This included unlimited beer/wine) The service was fantastic & the food was amazing!! Well worth the $$. Would definitely recommend & return!

Went here after reading the various reviews. The decor is a little dated but they are about to have some renovations so forget that. Food and service was really great. Happily recommend to any readers.

I bookended my five days in Yulara with a trip here. Located in the Desert Gardens Hotel, "arunguli" is actually the aboriginal word for "bush plum." The white linen dining tables are well-spaced, overlooking a small garden and adjoining pool. Reservations here are essential, and both evenings were booked solid when I went. The menu is fairly conservative with, thankfully,... More

Because of Christmas and to treat ourselves we decided to book the dinner menu at Arnguli Grill. It was a 4 course menu with most drinks included. Price but very delicious. All the food was cooked on point. I had a softshell crab soup with a crab bisque, the Wallabytartar on bluecheese risotto, the Black Angus beef filet steak and... More

We were a bit worried since the place was almost empty that we'd be rushed thru our meal. And although the music seemed a bit loud & kitchen may have started packing up by the end, we had no major complaints. I asked a few questions about the menu and they were answered by our server without hesitation. He actually... More

We had been to this place before (5 years ago) and it didn't disappoint then and it never did this evening. We were greeted with a big smile from Nicole who seated us at a window table. We ordered drinks and she informed us that our waiter would be sandi who was extremely friendly. We ordered the entrees of the... More

Arnguli is the local Indigenous name for the bush plum. The plum flourishes even in the driest areas. Its importance in desert life is immortalised in dreaming stories and artwork.A gem of Australia’s rugged heart, the bush plum is a fitting name for a restaurant that celebrates its stunning surroundings. Executive Chef Kellie Quazi selects and transforms the finest produce from around Australia into a modern culinary experience. Quality products from every corner of the country are enlivened by local Indigenous flora, spices, grains and seeds
