The Fox Hotel

South Brisbane

Pizza was great. My daughter will try it today. Am going to try the burgers today.

Mr Edwards Alehouse & Kitchen

Brisbane

Ivan dined on Thu, 30th May 2019 (8)

Restaurant was mostly empty around 7pm. but with a huge noisy crowd drinking outside. A bit taken aback when the waitress insisted that I sit at an unreserved table near the noisy front despite my protest. Second waitress rescued me and I could sit at one of the quieter RESERVED tables inside the restaurant. I actually advised my reservation at the start. Interestingly the restaurant only had a few more tables occupied by the time I finished my 3 course dinner so a bit puzzled about the stringent seating and reservation rules. Still the food was great as always. And the stout was superb.

Corbett and Claude Garden City

Upper Mount Gravatt

Ivan dined on Fri, 1st Mar 2019 (5)

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at C&C. Arrived early at 5pm and was refused our usual Table 301 for the last two years because it was a table of 6 and we were just three. Or was it because we are discounted Dimmi customers? Table i301 s actually in a bad spot next to the bar but our daughter loves it. Waited 20 minutes for one beer. Pizza was burnt. Left C&C 6.25pm. Table 301 was never occupied since we arrived. Next year's anniversary venue will be somewhere else.

Shingle Inn City Hall

Brisbane

The perfect spot to have a bite before a Town Hall concert.

Gyoza Bar Ann

Fortitude Valley

Ivan dined on Tue, 7th Mar 2017 (2)

Unbelievably this is my 3rd Dimmi booking problem this year. The restaurant refused to honour the 'Tuesday 2 for 1 gyoza' offer advertised on the Dimmi website and I had a physical copy of the booking clearly stating so.

Delfinas Bistro

Fortitude Valley

Ivan dined on Tue, 31st Jan 2017 (5)

Disaster. Booked with Dimmi and received a confirmation email. Turned up and restaurant is closed! Not sure where the problem sits.

Asana

Brisbane CBD

Ivan dined on Mon, 30th Jan 2017 (5)

Bit of a disaster. Booked half-price dining which the restaurant refused to acknowledge. Not sure who's to blame. Hopefully I get reimbursed.

Delfinas Bistro

Fortitude Valley

Ivan dined on Wed, 25th Jan 2017 (10)

Didn't have much time for lunch so had a very nice burger with yummy chunky chips. Will be back for a larger meal with more time. Awesome service.

Peng You China Kitchen Bar

Octopus - EXQUISITE.

Viet de Lites

South Bank

Ivan dined on Tue, 13th Dec 2016 (3)

below average food

San Kai Modern Japanese

South Bank

Ivan dined on Tue, 18th Oct 2016 (2)

Disappointing food. Very average quality with above average prices. Presentation of meal sets extremely crude with no hint of Japanese elegance. Only good thing about San Kai was the awesome friendly happy waitress.

Mr Edwards Alehouse & Kitchen

Brisbane

Ivan dined on Mon, 26th Sep 2016 (10)

OMG best pies in Brisbane - perfectly cooked original English-style pies with the crust in top! Will be returning soon. Great drinks options too.

Soleil Pool Bar

South Bank

Ivan dined on Thu, 22nd Sep 2016 (9)

Really cool idea. Great atmosphere. A bit pricey so save for special occasions when you want something different and informal.

Peng You China Kitchen Bar

Newstead

Ivan dined on Mon, 19th Sep 2016 (9)

Really appreciate the quick service as I we didn't have much time for a business lunch. Well done, PY.

Peng You China Kitchen Bar

Really fresh tasty dumplings and buns all made tom order and on-site. Will definitely return.

Brisbane C'est Bon French Restaurant

Woolloongabba

Ivan dined on Thu, 25th Aug 2016 (10)

The $21 lunch main special is simply unbelievable value with the usual exceptional quality. Extra $10 only for entrée or dessert. Wine is excellent too!

Peng You China Kitchen Bar

Newstead

Ivan dined on Tue, 16th Aug 2016 (10)

Incredible service. Only the manager and waiter both quietly efficiently professionally serving many tables. Food is great too.

Comuna Cantina

Brisbane CBD

Ivan dined on Tue, 16th Aug 2016 (5)

Tried three tacos - smallest tacos I've ever had. Fish was good. Pork and lamb interesting but not worth the premium price. Next table's burger looked interesting - next time.

Wow - you must try the Kentucky Fried Duck aka KFD which is out of this world!

Had a very enjoyable business lunch. Great atmosphere and service.

Peng You China Kitchen Bar

Newstead

Nice atmosphere. Nice warm seats at the back of the restaurant if the front is a bit cool. Service was excellent - glass of water always topped up.

Roti Chenai

Lamb roti was superb. Must have again.

Peng You China Kitchen Bar

Newstead

Ivan dined on Mon, 18th Jul 2016 (10)

I have eaten fried noodles from many countries and different styles. Peng You's fried chicken noodles is definitely near the top! It's a must-try.

Awesome ribs! Should offer them as a main as well.

Modern Thai Restaurant

Mount Gravatt

Ivan dined on Sun, 10th May 2015 (10)

Top class. Best Thai food we've had in Australia. I'm not Thai but I'm SE-Asian so am familiar with Thai cuisine. Prices are above average but easily compensated by quality and portions. Will definitely go back.

Thyme2

Brisbane CBD

Ivan dined on Mon, 20th Apr 2015 (10)

Great variety of food and desserts! Awesome service - used plates promptly cleared and drinks quickly topped up. They even moved the table for me to have a great window view.

Thyme2

Brisbane CBD

Ivan dined on Fri, 23rd Jan 2015 (8)

I have always enjoyed Thyme2. Unfortunately the lunch offering today was probably the worst I've had after all these years. Still even this is better than most buffets and I still maintain Thyme2's buffet to be one of the best in Australia. Regardless we shall return.
