I love dining at the restaurant. The service is quick and friendly and inspite of a very busy night, we were very well looked after. The food portion is generous with definitely no compromise on taste. Very tasty meals. Keep going back for more

It took a while for the food to come out as it was a busy night. All the dishes we ordered were tasty with the exception of the duck which was a bit dry. That being said, the flavours were great. Beautiful set up overlooking the foreshore.

Good food, especially the small share plates. The lamb ribs and taro cakes are absolutely delicious. The staff however was a big let down to the whole experience. There were hardly any tables but it was hard to grab staff attention and they were not very friendly either.

Beautiful setup inside-out in the southern highlands. We loved the ambience at the restaurant and the view from our table was stunning. All dishes we ordered were great except my steak which was a bit overdone and had too much fat. That being sad, the dish was complemented well with the fresh beetroot and tomato salad. Excellent service. Would definitely go back next time I’m in the area.

This place is absolutely buzzing which I quite enjoy. The food menu is interesting and I like the Asian take on a lot of dishes. The grilled eggplant-haloumi burger and the Hainan chicken wraps were delicious. Given that the place is super busy, it did take a while for my meals to come out but it was definitely worth it.

Tried the pop up yum cha and was pleasantly surprised. Great selection of chinese yum cha dishes with a modern twist. Loved the steamed custard buns and the french toast. Great ambience and service.
Henna dined on Sat, 28th Jul 2018 (7)
The food tastes good. I wasn’t a fan of the bar type seating, not the most comfortable seating style. One of the best creme brûlées I’ve ever had so if you like dessert, it’s a must try.

Service and food cannot get any better. Excellent crepes, both sweet and savoury. Love going back

My girlfriends and I absolutely loved the concept of share plates at Tipsy Bull. For the small plates, we ordered the betel bites and the croquettes and omg, both dishes were freaking delicious. The croquettes were soft and goey on the inside and crispy on the outside, exactly how a croquette should be. The betel bites had cripy pork belly which was another hit. For our mains, we shared the lamb cutlets that were beautifully flavoured and cooked to perfection. Loved the variety of gins this place serves. Service with a smile so a great night !!

It’s always a pleasure going back to Saffron. The food, the ambience and the service, everything is impeccable. What a delight. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and the delicious meals. The fattoush is the best I’ve ever tasted.
Henna dined on Tue, 24th Apr 2018 (9)
We had the bite and bolt and were not disappointed. For $18, you get an amazing value and get to try some of their best dishes. The pork belly bao is definitely my favourite. That being said, I think I enjoyed the dumplings and the beef short rib as much. It is always packed so can get pretty loud and takes a while for the food to arrive. You need a good few hours if you are heading there for lunch. The menu for bite and bolt hasn’t changed in a while. I’d like to try variety of combinations so I hope they do consider this.

What a great high tea menu with a chinese twist. Love the creativity. It’s great to see restaurants doing things differently to the traditional high tea you find at most places. This is my second time enjoying the high tea at Natural Nine and I absolutely loved it.
Henna dined on Fri, 20th Apr 2018 (10)
Great food and wonderful service as always. Slight changes to the menu which is looking great. I’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth however their savoury galettes are so good that cannot get on to the sweet ones. Keep up with wonderful work you do and the amazing food you cook.
Henna dined on Thu, 19th Apr 2018 (7)
Went there to try the bread and butter pudding which looked amazing on the menu however I was disappointed with the textures. The passionfruit, mango sorbet and fresh raspberries and strawberries made the taste quite appealing however it was too dense and doughy for my liking. It tasted rather dry compared to a moist pudding you’ll expect from a place that has in the past served you considerably good food. Their American beef ribs are worth trying. They have recently introduced an autumn menu and have some nice dishes that I’d like to try. Just not sure about desserts.
Henna dined on Wed, 18th Apr 2018 (8)
Their tiramisu is the best I’ve tasted. Beautiful presentation too. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Great place to catch up with friends.
Henna dined on Thu, 12th Apr 2018 (9)
What a little gem. I loved the old rustic look this place offers. It is little but warm and cosy. We had the ceaser salad and pork cutlet as part of their $29 weekday special menu. The salad tasted great and the pork cutlet was just divine. It was cooked to perfection. The apple slaw and the peach purée added the richness and sweetness the pork needed. There were some other dishes on their menu that I’d love to try preferably in winters when the fireplace is on. Beautiful setup.
Henna dined on Fri, 6th Apr 2018 (9)
Went there to try a few desserts. Their signature dessert in shape of a rock looks amazing however is a real let down when it comes to flavour. The steaming dessert (Zen stone) is made up of an average tasting chocolate mousse and flavours of orange. I did thoroughly enjoyed their sesame ice cream with caramelised hazelnuts and matcha wafer (Tosutogoma). In fact, I loved it so much that I keep going back for more. Their food tasted pretty good too (only if I can get pass the dessert that I’ll have anything else haha).

Great food. It’s fresh, vibrant and delicious. The desserts taste amazing too. Next level japanese food

Went there to try dessert and was not disappointed. Their rum baba was moist and full of flavour. Although I am not a fan of alcohol in my food, this dessert was well balanced with the addition of grilled pineapple adding that tart contrast you need with the rum soaked sweet baba and the cream. I believe it tasted a lot better that what it looked. Visually it wasn’t appealing. Needed a bit more colour but I guess the chefs letting the flavour do all the talking. Definitely worth trying.
Henna dined on Sat, 24th Feb 2018 (8)
The food tasted great and the service was good. Good choice of dishes on the menu. Thoroughly enjoyed my beetroot salad, it was light and refreshing. The lamb ragu pasta was delicious too. The dessert of apple tart lacked contrasting flavours. The only flavour you could taste was sweet. Was a little disappointed with that. That being said, the atmosphere and service made up for it. Nice and relaxed setting, perfect for chilling any day of the week.
Henna dined on Wed, 21st Feb 2018 (8)
Just went there for dessert. Tried the magnum which was delicious. The service was fantastic. I did find it a bit loud so it was hard to listen to conversations
Henna dined on Wed, 21st Feb 2018 (7)
I was not wowed by the food like everyone else had told me about. Not sure if it were the dishes we picked. We had a few small plates and the rare beef from the bigger plates. Would like to go try more of the seafood dishes like the squid which I’ve heard is fantastic.
Henna dined on Sun, 18th Feb 2018 (10)
I enjoyed the food so much that went back twice in a week’s time. The service and the food was flawless. I would love to go back and try the next seasonal menu, which I hope comes out soon
Henna dined on Tue, 13th Feb 2018 (7)
We tried the restaurant as part of the living social deal which for the amount of food we received was fantastic. We received the spartan feast and I enjoyed the selection of dishes which were served, my favourite being the lamb koftas. The meat was juicy, tender and melted in your mouth. I was also a fan of the beetroot carpaccio that was served with feta and walnuts. Yum!! We had a few complaints though. Firstly, the gap between meals was too long for my liking. Secondly, it was hard to get staff attention possibly because of where we were seated. That should however not be an excuse for the not so attentive service. Thirdly, our dessert was forgotten for long and when asked, the staff went to check but never got back to us with an update so we had to go back and ask again. Not a good service experience. Finally, the deal had two options of dessert toppings that you could choose from but we never got asked what we preferred. On asking we were told there was only one which was not the case as outlined on the menu in the deal. Inspite of all complaints, I enjoyed my food. Will I go back with the 50% living social deal, YES. Will I go back if I have to pay full price ($55pp) for the feast and the quality of service, NO.
Henna dined on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 (10)
The calamari was cooked to perfection and the flavours worked really well with the squid ink aioli and the pear. The portion size was generous too. Perfect to share between two people. The service is fantastic. The staff were friendly and service with a smile was a motto there which was a delight. Will definitely go back again to try more from the menu
Henna dined on Sat, 10th Feb 2018 (10)
The food, the atmosphere and the service were all impeccable. The meals are prepared beautifully with great flavours. The pressed lamb entree and the pineapple splice dessert were definitely the highlights for me so definitely going back to get some more of that. I ordered the kangaroo for my main and it was tender, juicy and flavoursome. Pure delight. Will be back

Went there for lunch with work mates. Love the concept and the food tastes great especially the chicken tikka masala which is my favourite. The tandoori lamb skewers are pretty good too if you like a bit of heat in your food. The service was a bit slow but that can be excused given that it was busy. Will definitely go back to try more food.

The food tasted great and the ambience was fantastic. We ordered the fish and pork for our mains. While both dishes tasted fabulous, the barramundi could do with more sauce. I love the chic vibe the place offers. You can move from the formal dining to the casual couch area which I prefer after dinner, preferably for cocktails and dessert. Friendly service. Would definitely like to go back and explore the bar menu next time.

We tried the Chinese High tea and what a delight that was. Great flavours and great price. It was the perfect afternoon tea you could expect. The bite size treats were flavoursome and not too rich or overly sweet which is often the case with a lot of high teas. I wish it was on for longer so I could go back for more next month :)

Went there with a couple of friends for dessert and coffee. We ordered tiramisu and cannoli. The tiramisu was delicious (as always) however we were very disappointed with the cannoli. The menu indicates that the cannoli is meant to be served with fairly floss which was the primary reason we picked that dish over others (my friend loves fairy floss). We had a few bites of the cannoli each thinking that the fairly floss might be inside which wasn’t the case. After checking with the staff, we were advised that their fairy floss machine was broken and they forgot to mention this at the time of the order. The manger was called who was absolutely rude, telling us that we had eaten half of our cannoli. I have worked in hospitality and can confirm that it is not a charm to come across managers who talk like you’ve committed a crime by complaining. Not one staff member apologised for not passing on the info before. Anyways, I wouldn’t be going back.

Good variety of dishes to choose from. We had the pork buns which were delicious. The second dish we had was fish and chips which I wasn't a fan of as the batter had a flavour I didn't really enjoy. I wouldn't say it's bad but it just wasn't to my liking. The atmosphere is always buzzing.
Henna dined on Sun, 20th Aug 2017 (10)
Went there with my friends to have the breakfast degustation which was an absolute delight. Both, the food and service was impeccable. All four dishes tasted delicious. The pancakes and the wagyu beef were my favourite. The only thing that was a bit of a letdown was that the place was too cold, in spite of the heating. Its winters, so was expected but the chairs were too cold to sit on and took a while to warm up. That isn't going to stop me from returning and trying more good at the restaurant.

The service, the food and the atmosphere was great. We ordered 4 courses and each course was prepared and presented beautifully. My favourite was the oxtail and the pork belly. My main course of duck was delicious however I found the buckwheat had may be yogurt in it which was a bit too tart for my liking. The lemon tart was delicious however the chocolate, coffee and orange dessert looked a bit messy on the plate and the flavours weren't that spectacular. We had to rush to another appointment so we were very pleased that the restaurant made our final course come out super quickly.

Henna dined on Wed, 17th May 2017 (8)
A delightful meal. The pork belly mantous and the spanner crab dumplings are a must try. Our main dish was beef with wasabi and the meat was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy. We were however a little disappointed with the duck pancake and squid with glass noodle salad. Both dishes lacked flavour. I can definitely see the chef's creativity but I did enjoy the previous menu more. The contemporary Australian menu was an absolute delight so I was a little disappointed this time around. That being said, the service was absolutely flawless. We were looked after so well. I'll be back for the buns and the dumplings!
Henna dined on Tue, 9th May 2017 (10)

We ordered from the bite and bolt menu. Although the food is good but there is no order in which the dishes are served. We ordered our main to come with rice but it was served after a fair bit of waiting. I usually love the soft shell crab bun but it lacked seasoning this time.
Henna dined on Fri, 12th Aug 2016 (8)
We made our booking through dimmi but were not informed that we could be given a bar table which I wasn't very pleased with however our request to move to a standard table was honoured when our food arrived. We were told that it often happened with dimmi bookings which had no mention of the different table setting on their website. Apart from this slight glitch, I have absolutely no complaints. The food tasted amazing and the service was good. Of all the dishes we ordered, I would recommend a sausage dish that came with a mash. I believe it was a spanish version of bangers and mash. Omg.. It is to die for. The octopus we ordered was lovely and the portion size was generous. Would definitely go back at some point provided I don't get the bar table.
Henna dined on Wed, 3rd Aug 2016 (10)
Bite and Bolt menu at lunch time is a must try.
Henna dined on Wed, 27th Jul 2016 (8)
We absolutely loved the dishes we ordered. If you are a fan of sashimi, the kingfish under the Raw bar on the menu is a must try. We ordered oysters which were pretty small so not sure if we’ll be ordering those again. We had the soft shell crab buns which are an absolute delight along with chicken fried ribs and the octopus. The octopus was beautifully cooked and I will definitely be going back for some more as getting an octopus right is not every place can master. Overall, I would say it is a good value for money and I personally love their modern take on Japanese food. It is very busy and loud but that’s what makes the atmosphere more vibrant. I don’t necessarily like the high table and chair (bar-kinda) seating but they do have benches outside which you can request.
Henna dined on Fri, 24th Jun 2016 (7)
We ordered tandoori chicken lollipops which was a real let down. We've had finger food at the restaurant before and really enjoyed it, so was looking forward to trying the lollipos. The chicken lacked flavour and tasted pretty bland. The salami pizza was average too. It was a busy night but the food did not take long to come. So was happy with that. The menu has a lot to offer so may try something else next time.
Henna dined on Fri, 3rd Jun 2016 (8)
We went at lunch time to try the lunch board special. The meals were generous however we were all disappointed with the dessert selection. As advertised, we did not get the creme brûlée. The pot of chocolate and italian meringue was a lot and overly sweet. The service was fantastic. May go back if the brûlée is back on the menu.
Henna dined on Sun, 29th May 2016 (9)
If you are a big fan of high tea, you definitely need to try this place. The view is spectacular and the staffs lovely. The selection of cakes and teas is very impressive however I would like to see more savoury items on the menu as there was too much sweet at the end of it. It would be nice to see a better balance. The sandwiches could be smaller as I believe they were quite big for a high tea menu. Overall, I was very pleased with it. Would definitely like to go back if the menu was altered to incorporate more savoury items.
Henna dined on Sat, 14th May 2016 (7)
The staff was friendly and approachable. The food menu was quite extensive and what we ordered tasted good. However, I think there was a bit of confusion around what cuisine the restaurant wants to highlight. It is advertised as a Vietnamese restaurant however a lot of the dishes are Thai. It overlooks the swan river and is in close proximity to the city centre and Elizabeth Quay with plenty of off-street parking available.

The café has an amazing vibe. We went there on a Friday night and it was absolutely buzzing. There was live music and the food was delicious. We ordered the crab spaghetti and the meat platter. It was one of the best seafood spaghetti’s I’ve had in a while. The staff were friendly and we were looked after well during the dinner service. Although it was super busy, we didn’t have to wait long for or meals to arrive which were happy with. I’ll be going back when I’m back in Perth.

It was a pretty busy night which is why I think the service was a bit slow. Otherwise the food was good. It was a nice day to sit outside and we all enjoyed our meal.

We ordered from the tapas menu and the food was great. The crab buns were delicious and so were the duck croquettes. It dishes were perfect size as we did not want a huge portion. The service was quick and friendly. Their dessert menu looks amazing so would love to go back and try.

Great food and service as usual. Ordered my favourite garlic bread and Fatouch with a coffee. Peferct for Sunday lunch. I love the traditional music they play and the warm atmosphere the staff create with their friendly service.

The food was absolutely delicious. Lovely, welcoming staff so the service was as good as the food. Would definitely recommend Fattoush- It is the best I have tried in Australia so far. Would definitely go back for more

Great Staff but was disappointed with the food. There were no steak knives and the meat was too chewy. Enjoyed the Calamari though. Nice place for a quiet lunch or dinner.

Both food and service were remarkable. My friend and I shared a three course meal as we don't have a big appetite. Often when you go to fine dine places, staff are not very pleased with the sharing for some reason. However the staff in Ellacure were fantastic. The service was very friendly and the food came out quick. I have been there before and definitely going back for more.

We just had some dessert and coffee. Great staff and great service. The mango brulee tasted amazing but the portion size was smaller than what I expected. Apart from the portion size, everything else was perfect.

Very Rude and unaccommodating owner. The response below would highlight some concerns raised. Who talks to customers like that when they are giving a place some feedback? I have not come across any in my entire dining experience- "Hi Henna, Thank you very much for your reply, and it is great to know you are clearly not interested to have a good dinning experience when you go out, but an attitude to criticise. I don't think any restaurant need to have a big sign on there front door to say we don't just do coffee, I am sure there are many other fine places to cater just for that. But thank you again for your feed back, and thank you for pass this information to the appropriate critics. Also please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further information. Best regard Shan Gao "
