Had heard good things but despite living just up the road we had never been to Dunwoody's. We went the evening before Anzac Day so it was a fairly quiet Monday night. I was really surprised given it's a pub that they bring menus to your table. The menu has all the usual fare although there are also several curries... More

We found this a bit noisy and barn like ..the food was heaped with fries and boring salad. Not a great atmosphere and on a main road. A oncer for us.

I went for a business luncheon ordered, after 30minutes a staff member came to my table and stated we have run out of beef curry would you like lamb in your curry instead, I agreed, I waited for another 10 minutes and the meal arrived. The meat was so tough I left most of it and left.

Had to wait to be seated when there were lots of tables - not enough staff. Had to line up to order food and a separate line for drinks. First course arrived fine but main I had to ask for an hour later. No excuse. No explanation. Food was not worth the trouble.
