“Superb atmosphere and Food”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Very rarely do you come away from a restaurant and feel that you have had a really superb evening from start to finish.
The ultra modern pavement level entrance gives way to an almost colonial style downstairs. Very cosy comfortable seating, buzz of activity, great waiter service and of course beautiful interesting food.
Luck Manchester!

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Had a weekend planned in Manchester booked Australasia on the Friday evening was not disappointed had an excellent meal again could not fault the service the food was as brilliant as ever had a wonderful evening perfect start to the weekend . So much so that we finished off the weekend by going back for Sunday lunch and had a brilliant end to the weekend. Had a dessert to die for and the presentation was wonderful this was recommended by Sophia and it was a wonderful choice. we don't normally eat sweets but this was one of the best.

“Average”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The frosty reception when you arrive at the front desk is a tad off putting, but once sat down the ambience & style of the venue is rather welcoming. We ordered a number of dishes off the menu which were pleasant (although a little small) the cocktails however were lovely. The crowd in here although most are mid 40s, there is an air of wag going off in here (or at last trying) I'd prefer to visit next time for lunch

“Very Chic and Trendy venue”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Very Chic and Trendy, cocktail bar has a fantastic cocktail menu. Staff were very polite and attentive, food menu was extensive and waitress advice good. The food it's self was very good but not excellent, had better Asia Fusion food at smaller less well known places.
If you want to eat out for the whole experience this is the place for you, if you're looking for top quality food try one of the smaller independently owned eateries.

“Grand Pacific at Australasia - beautiful venue and food!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Just had lunch here with family for my Husband's birthday treat. We ate outside, which was just lovely - like being on holiday! Colonial type decor, sheltered by tall bamboo plants, which make it really private. Food was slightly different than their Autralasia restaurant, as they don't serve the larger main courses. They just serve small dishes/taster plates, which all tasted beautiful and each one so well presented. Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Enjoyed a cocktail before lunch - Rose Lychee Martini, which I would strongly recommend. It is a little on the expensive side but is well worth it for a treat! All in all a very pleasant experience. We will be back soon!
