“High quality dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

From the moment you walk in to the Historic building which houses the Australasian, you know you have arrived somewhere special. The service is excellent, the food which changes each month and is themed Asian with a twist is superb every time. I love this place and cant help going back.

“For a special celebration!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

The food is absolutely delicious and served up beautifully with different ingredients that one would not normally cook. The decor is Japanese and it has a great ambience for that special dinner, however, if your man has a big appetite, he will leave hungry, as the courses are artistically presented, but small! The service is good.

“It was a december Christmas gathering of friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Wonderful food and atmosphere in this restored and modernised old hotel. A group of friends enjoying each others company and probably too many fine wines but well worth it.

“Special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

We booked two months in advance for a Saturday night, a party of eight, we enjoyed a very memorable evening. The restaurant operates a set menu, but as two of our party had special requirements (vegetarian and gluten free), this was easily worked around with just a word to the staff on arrival. Entree was first class, the choice of lamb shanks for main course in an "up market" restaurant was a bit disappointing, but needless to say it was delicious. Dessert is worth saving room for, a masterpiece of small delicacies.
The confusion over our pre-dinner drinks was baffling, ordering wine from the wine list was much simpler for the staff. Other than this little hiccup the service was excellent, I would defintely dine here again as the meal was superb.

“Faultless!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

Wow, what a find! This establishment has been impeccably restored and decorated and their kitchen emanated the best tasting meal I've had in a long time! Beatifully blended asian cuisine, stunning flavours, and whatever you do, DO NOT HOLD BACK ON DESSERT! Every morsel went "mmmmm". The salty caramel macarons must have been dropped from heaven, and if allowed to I would have devoured many more of them! The service was lovely, if felt like we were being served by friends, yet unobtrusive. Congrats to the selector of the wine list, it was a joy to choose from such premium wines. The ambience really was just right. A perfect night.
