“A Great find”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed near echo point to see the blue mountains and fancied a nice meal in the evening. We popped into a couple in the vicinity and they were extortionately priced! We found Pins by checking Tripadvisor, we had walked past it earlier in the day but didn't even realise it was a restaurant, it looks more like a normal residential house. However, we were not disappointed! The food was amazing and we spent almost 3 hours just sitting and appreciating it (with wine of course). I had roast duck and risotto and my wife had Japanese food. The atmosphere was really nice and the owner was very tentative and made us feel extremely welcome. Booking recommended.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Food was excellent. We had the bruschetta and pork gyoza dumplings for entree. For my main I had the slow braised pork belly with asian greens from the specials board, oh WOW fantastic !!
White chocolate crème brulee for dessert is hard to resist.

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We have been coming to 'Pins' on and off, ever since we first found it as little 'Pins and Noodles' in Katoomba, 20 years ago. Pins on Lurline is one of our favourite dining places in the Blue Mountains. The hostess and staff are unfailingly cheerful and efficient. Simon (the Scotsman in the kitchen) produces delicious meals and the most mouth-watering deserts. The ambiance is casual and friendly and the menu is an interesting mix of Asian and mod-Australian. Our latest visit was with Norwegian friends who sampled the kangaroo fillet and were so impressed they wrote home about it! We started with the delicious Japanese dumplings (gyoza) to share and I chose the slow braised pork belly with Asian greens which was outstanding. Whether you pop in for a casual bowl of noodles or decide on a 3 course extravanganza as we did, you can't go wrong at Pins on Lurline. Oh and I should also mention that Pins is excellent value for money.

“The desserts!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

The food here is incredible.!! It's a bit of a mix of cuisine and western food, I've eaten here multiple times and the food is always amazing! As for the desserts! Leave room, they are incredible some of the best I've ever had. The service is great, book in advance though as they book out quickly as they're so good!
