Stopped in for a quick lunch. Totally wished we hadn't. The food was well below par. Asked for a medium rare steak. The steak was way over cooked and beyond well and the prawns we disgusting. Even a simple burger was horrible. Avoid and find somewhere else to eat. Wish i read the reviews first.

from the moment we walked in we were greeted by an unfriendly guy who guided us to the worst table in a half empty restaurant and told us to "sit here". We moved ourselves to a better table, non of which have a rain forest view. The waitress was friendly enough and we ordered a coffee and a ginger beer.... More

On the way back towards the station/Sky Rail terminal this restaurant seemed to be a good place to stop - the menu looked reasonable We had a wrap - tuna, seemed to a lot of wrap and no mayo so it was fairly dry. The Hawaiian was on the other hand an inspired choice. We had smoothies to drink and... More

Having read some other reviews, I don't think the service was that bad. It was not great either. The food was very ordinary, certainly no frills to my tuna sandwich. In fact, if I had not ordered the extra salad I think I would have just received unadorned tinned tuna on two slices of bread. My wife and daughter had... More

Food fresh and service friendly. Serves good size, but options to just buy lunch special wraps very tasty. Nice area to sit for a lovely lunch. Been around Kuranda just lovely to sit and enjoy

We were a bit disappointed with our four iced coffees we bought. They were okay but fairly basic. No ice cream or cream just coffee and ice. Cost $36 for 4 iced coffees. Pretty expensive. Nice view of the rainforest there though.

Decided that we needed something to eat and the menu looked appealing. Went in and sat by a window looking out onto the forest. We ordered drinks, a beer and Diet Coke. Beer arrived with a glass whilst the Diet Coke was also in a glass and lukewarm! Not a god start. The waitress was tardy in taking our order.... More

We pride ourselves with our fresh restaurant quality meals which are made to order. Our pies are fresh delivered every day from the local bakery. It is unfortunate that you assumed about frozen pies! We do our outmost to speed our service since we are aware of our guests time limit. More

Desperate to have an iced coffee on a hot day walking through Kuranda. Tables looked good beside the rain forest. Waitress didn't bother to listen to us as we ordered 2 iced coffees she set out every conceivable menu. Finally two very mediocre iced coffees arrived. No ice cream or cream. Not a good experience.

...and we didn't find the staff horrific at all. Food really is pretty bad for the price though. Mostly frozen what we had and expensive. Chocolate milkshake pretty good however!!

We are pleased that you enjoy your chocolate milkshake. Our menu is at the front of the entrance with prices and it is a shame that you assumed your meal was frozen. We make all our meal fresh from the base. Our prices are competitive as well as our portions, although we don't sacrifice the quality over the quantity. More
