Disliked the quality of the food. Yes it's on the cheaper end but I still want reasonable quality. Staff sort of knew what they were doing but had to keep asking someone else to get answers I wanted.

Dreadful place, glad it's gone! Food was very disappointing and the service was bad. It's been closed for a few months now.

We had dinner at this restaurant after going to the movies across the road. We were only the third couple in the place, but still took quite a while before we were seated and menus arrived. The food, service, general cleanliness were all only very average - much better options available in Oxford Street. For a restaurant right in the... More

This is by no means a shocker of a place but it needs to lift its game if it is to have any chance of survival in a crowded trendy coffee,breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner strip on Oxford Street. Cheap bacon and eggs are ok but Coles like thin bread doesn't really compete with nice sour dough or ciabatta bread... More

Food took over an hour to reach our table. It took half an hour just to get a bottle of wine. There were only a handful of customers in the cafe, and other establishments were full., The meal itself was not worth the money, I had the rump steak with potato and salad. The potato tasted like it came from... More

We took our dear friend here for his 73rd birthday, we were very happy with the food and the service. The coffee was delightful as well, we will go back for breakfast again. Thank you

I didn't love my experience here to be hones - it has a good selection of different types of food and drink, but it just didn't dazzle me and it wasn't cheap either. Maybe its because it has so many other places to compete with in the Oxford Street area, but it needs to deliver something a bit more for... More

I've passed this restaurant 1000 but never given it a thought. By default we ended up there for lunch and it was fantastic. The food we ordered was a club sandwich and the pie of the day, which was beef. The servings were very generous and the food was great. I have to give a big shout out for their... More

LONG STORY SHORT: Cons: Tasteless & overpriced food in general. Soggy pizza with severe lack of toppings. Under dressed salad and cold chips. Lackluster service. Pros: Steak cooked correctly. Staff gave discount after negative feedback at payment counter. FULL SCOOP: So I'm writing this review right after coming home from dinner here while the horror of it all is still... More
