Sake Restaurant & Bar Hamer Hall

Melbourne

Minali dined on Sat, 19th Sep 2015 (4)

Cocktails were great and staff were very friendly and informative and attentive. However on a fully booked Saturday night it took over 30min for dessert to come. We had the "feed me" menu between 2. We almost walked out as the wait was getting silly. They offered us free coffee to apologise but we were already late anyway.

The Trustee Bar & Bistro

Perth CBD

Minali dined on Sat, 18th Jul 2015 (9)

Dessert degustation is worth trying - enjoyed crepe and deconstructed pavlova the most. We were rushed to get to a show and they accommodated our constrained timing by bringing out all desserts at once which we appreciated. Snickers bar dessert always a hit. Prawn ravioli special with lashings of truffle was delicious.

The Painted Bird Bar & Kitchen

Perth

Minali dined on Tue, 7th Jul 2015 (10)

Used a dimmi 50% off deal mid week which was great. Highly recommend the lamb rump, chocolate dessert (very rich) and Barry White cocktail.

Jackson's Restaurant

Highgate

Minali dined on Wed, 13th Mar 2013 (10)

Been wanting to go there for years after hearing great things. They really delivered. Breads to start we fantastic and there was a great variety. Duck and lamb were highlights. Felt ill by the end from eating so much! They were kind enough to pack our petit fours to go.

That Little Mexican Place (Vic Park)

Victoria Park

Minali dined on Sun, 22nd Jul 2012 (8)

What a fun little place. I'd heard about the one in North Perth for a while and finally made it to the one in Vic Park. Love the shared style of dining which allows you to try numerous dishes. Pity they had run out of churros on the night. Mexican hot chocolate is not recommended if you're a fan of the Belgian style hot chocolate as it's very watery with only subtle flavour. Any cheese related dish was good. It's BYO as well which makes it all the more enticing for a long chatty night out with friends.

Dux Cafe Restaurant

Como

Minali dined on Sat, 21st Jul 2012 (7)

Had a great long Saturday lunch with some old friends here. Standouts were chicken ballotine and pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Also liked that they had a citron presse on the drinks menu - very refreshing, especially on a summery afternoon. Is in the Entertainment Book for 25% off so very reasonably priced.

Bluewaters

Cottesloe

Minali dined on Sat, 17th Mar 2012 (8)

Service was a little slow at times but great value for money with quality tasty food. I recommend the soft shell crab and pork belly. Even better value if you have an Entertainment Gold Card (buy one main get one free). Perfect way to spend a lazy summer weekend afternoon.

Alchemy

Brisbane

Minali dined on Sat, 21st Jan 2012 (9)

Liquid nitrogen desserts were innovative, exciting and a real highlight as you felt like you were a part of the creative process.
