We ate here after the place was recommended to us, it lived up to everything we expect. Very classy, comtemporary styling, attentive, efficient and very well trained staff - and the food - excellent!!

This place is really nice, and the clientelle make the effort to match the restaraunt, not the sort of place to arrive in your scruffs, which makes a pleasant change, but was still lively and exciting.

Great food, great service, lovely atmosphere, we will definetely go back

Nicely presented delicious food at a fair price. Given the buzz and location about Australasia I'm always presently surprised when the bill arrives and it really is very reasonable for such delicious, well prepared dishes. The service can be a bit annoying as it is clearly the kind of place that recruits based on looks and not any concern about basic intelligence. The waiter had a little difficulty taking our order and keeping on top of our emptying glasses, the food however made up for this sloppiness. Really enjoyed a smokey old fashioned to finish the meal off, delicious.

Visited last Saturday, was very much looking forward to going after reading such great reviews. Made a reservation 6 weeks before and could only get in at 10pm, which was a good sign it must be good. Service was great, waiter very apologetic after realising at the end of the meal we had been given the wrong wine, he instantly offered a couple of cocktails on the house, declined sadly after being too full from the fabulous food. Would definitely recommended the goats cheese and honey salad! A little disappointed with the dessert but I think we chose the wrong thing. The couple next to us had the choc souffle and we both had food envy!! Would love to go back when in Manchester again, the overall restaurant and atmosphere was fantastic.

After a long slog at the cricket I entertained clients at Australasia. Good cocktails and attentive service, good advice on the menu, fab food and atmosphere. I really recommend getting a good selection of small dishes to share.
