I was fortunate enough to go to the Greenhouse twice. Once for breakfast and once for lunch recently. Lets start off with the bad news shall we? because it is a VERY short list you'll be glad to know.
the indoor seats can be very uncomfortable if you are taller than 5'5. The seats are very short and taller larger people may find it uncomfortable as my friends felt like their booty was falling off the seat, not sure if its on purpose so as to turn over more clients (because, you see, if you are uncomfortable u are likely to eat faster and get out of there) - but thats the conspiracist in me theorising.
Food is actually surprisingly really tasty.This is a quirky restaurant where you will have your drinks served in recycled sauce jars, almost everything you see in the restaurant is recycled material. This is the calling card of Matt Stone (head chef) to use recycled materials. Mains are generally between $22-$32. I do wish the dishes were a little more generous in their portions but still very delicious.
we tried the following dishes:
I had the confit lamb, charred zucchini, currants, banyut nut and labne... i dont know what they put on that charred zucchini but I could have eaten an entire pot full of it. the lamb was perfectly cooked and was well seasoned, it melted in your mouth. for me it was one of those meals that i was left with wanting more of it.
The Marron with kiffler potatoes was quite good, the marron was a bit tough not as tasty but still passable.
The jungle curry, pink snapper, jasmin rice apple eggplant was very tasty though not "curry" as you would normally see in a thai restaurant. it was quite a dry curry and looked more like a salad rather than a curry when it was served.
Finally the seared rare emu, grains, legumes grapes - this one was a BIG hit at the table, the emu was cooked really well, it was gamey but not too gamey, it was tender and cut so easily.
We also shared a couple plates of the plum and lavender parfait sesame crunch and shortbread. This dessert is one of those "deconstructed" dealies, I didnt taste any lavender in it, parfait is homemade which is a nice bonus, but it was very refreshing and quite nice. I just didnt taste any flavours pop out at me, i personaly found it a little bland.
Overall, definitely would try again.
