Krish Indian Worongary


Val dined on Sat, 28th Jan 2017 (8)

Extensive menu from which we chose a shared entree, two mains and various accompaniments. All were excellent and very generous servings. It has taken us 2 years of living on GC to find an Indian restaurant we really like. We will be back!

Consistently good food and service. Sad restaurant closing soon but happy butchery is remaining open.

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Val dined on Tue, 20th Sep 2016 (9)

This restaurant is consistently excellent. Can't fault service or food. It's a bit pricey but we will go back!

Spaghetti House

South Bank

Val dined on Fri, 26th Aug 2016 (9)

The scallop special was exquisite. It,s a bit noisy.

The regular menu items are always of a very high standard. I advise caution in ordering specials. Overall this restaurant is a consistently very good fine dining experience.

Cav's Steakhouse

For once it was a quiet night. We have taken several interstate visitors to this restaurant and everyone has enjoyed the experience. Last night was no exception. We will keep coming back until the restaurant (sadly) closes.

Cav's Steakhouse


Val dined on Thu, 26th May 2016 (9)

Food and service were good despite hosting the Queensland rugby team. We will be sorry to see the restaurant close at the end of the year.

Cav's Steakhouse


Val dined on Sun, 10th Apr 2016 (9)

The steaks here are awesome. We have dined here several times and they are consistently excellent. However on this occasion, the service was not the usual excellent. Sad to hear that will close within the year. If you haven't been, go soon!

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Val dined on Thu, 4th Feb 2016 (9)

This is a sublime restaurant. Although food choices fairly limited, everything we ate was exquisite especially the shared lamb main course and the scallop tapas. The wine list is extensive and we particlarlyenjoyed the Urban Tempranillo recommended by our waiter. Service is impeccable. We will be back!

Lemongrass Thai on Chevron

Surfers Paradise

Val dined on Sat, 26th Dec 2015 (2)

This was the worst Thai meal we had eaten in our year on Gold Coast: over cooked fish, tough meat and rice seemed reheated. If a restaurant is going to open on Boxing Day it should not compromise the quality. Very disappointing.
