Prompt and attentive service and food received in good time. We all had very different style dishes and all were of a good standard. I think we may have entertained the surrounding tables with our raucous laughter. The only thing I will say is that once our meals were received (and our volume increased) we did not have anyone offer... More

Had the fishermen's basket at $35, had 2 over burnt fishes, tasteless soggy chips, calamari, tiny scallops and 3 prawns. It came with dry cheap salad. Also had the shared mix grilled which was full of olives and calamari. This place is expensive and food quality poor. The cashier girl looked like she hated the world and wanted to be... More

Been to this outlet this afternoon with few work colleagues amazing atmosphere and service has changed by miles after this change of management. Waitress was very attentive and attention to detail was very surprising, food was decent although we were not planning to eat but was sold just because of her effort.

Called in for a light lunch with my husband, son and daughter in law. We decided to share a couple of mains. My son ordered nasi goring while we ordered fish and chips. The meals arrived promptly and staff were obliging in providing additional crockery and cutlery. The nasi goring was tasty but wold benefit from more spices. The fish... More

Staff weren't overly enthused to be there but were not rude. Took 20+ minutes for eggplant chips, calamari and cookies and cream shake. Hardly any calamari on plate. It actually looked weird. Granted it is an entree but still very small. All food was yummy. A little bit more balsamic on the eggplant chips would have been great as there... More

I haven't been here for 2 years, the menu has become very basic with all the expected choices. It has lots it's chic appeal and had become your very average greasy salty food Don't order anything like the steaks or pizzas as they are no better than your average take away ! Food is terrible for the price, very disappointed

Description
Opening Hours: Open 9am 'til late, 7 days a week Conveniently located next to the cinemas, the open atmosphere and modern, retro-inspired groovy style, is designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. As the Groove Train 'vibe' takes over, quickly alleviating any stress, have a snack or a three course meal, a glass of wine or a coffee and enjoy some well-deserved time-out. Mull over any important shopping decisions, or enjoy some time-out with a friend before heading back to the stores for some more retail therapy. And the Groove Train Doncaster is a great place to visit in the evening as well. It's a convenient place to meet friends for a quick bite before seeing the latest blockbuster or to take a loved one for dinner after seeing a romantic comedy. There is certainly no lack of choice with the Groove Train menu. Our friendly and accommodating staff members are at your service and will help if you're struggling to decide on any of the modern Australian and Mediterranean inspired meals or snacks. A popular choice, particularly as an after movie or late night meal is gourmet pizza, made to order every time and cooked in the famous Groove Train wood-fired pizza oven. The Groove Train proudly serves award-winning Veneziano coffee, made to perfection every time!
