“Beautiful Steaks - and great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Hidden down a side street, Kingsleys Aussie Steakhouse is well worth the find.

There are other things on the menu - but most people would plump for the steaks. And they are delicious.

Wine list isn't extensive, and the wines are relatively expensive.

All in all, a nice meal.

“Shoved into corner beside store.. Restaurant was empty!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Came here tonight with high expectations, got here early, before 7pm so there was only 1 other table occupied here. we were taken to a corner of the restaurant and seated there. Didn't really think much about it until the wait staff had to keep coming behind me and me leaning forward as they were getting bottles of wine from beside me, never mind the door beside us that led to the storeroom which was used a few times while we were there too, baby seat and fake candles taken out of it. If the restaurant had been busy you would be ok with it but it wasn't and even when we left there were still empty tables of 2 available, for what you are charged this table should not be seated until EVERY other table is full. Unacceptable having to keep apologising to wait staff that you are in their way while eating as they are trying to get to the bottles of wine, won't go back again in a hurry. Tonight was meant to be special but felt like we were eating in the workers corner

“Great Steaks”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is well worth the trip, very good steaks, good ambiance and service. Overall a very positive experience. One small complaint - an expensive wine list - minimal choice for entry type wines in $30-$40 region.

“Steaks are consistently good”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

We have not visited the original Kingsleys for some time and were delighted to experience the same quality and great ambience. Our steaks were expertly cooked and presented. Condiments were superb, as were side dishes. These guys are serious about steak and the consistency of food and service was fantastic. Keep it up, Kingsleys.

“Something special!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

For special occasions, we’ve visited Kingsley’s several times during the past few years for dinner & it has always delivered on quality.

The last time we were there, the oysters Kilpatrick were lovely, the steaks (grass-fed Gippsland) were fantastic & were cooked to perfection, the wine list limiting in choice but excellent & the crème brulee was delectable.

The staff have always been attentive and helpful & the whole ambience is beautiful.

Nearest parking is at Kings Parking @ Kent Street or a stroll from Town Hall station.
