The food was excellent, the T-bone was really good. The spit roast chicken is great as always.

We've been going to kitchen by Mike in the airport everytime we fly and are delighted it's in the city for other occasions now! Great food, service and atmosphere.
Hi there and thanks for taking some time out to leave us a review. Wonderful to hear that you are long time fans and that you also love the CBD location. If you haven't already, why not come in and check us out for dinner? We do share plates, woodfire oven, rotisserie cooking and good times all with lovely table service. See you soon.

love this place - great food & service. not fancy - just nice for a step-up casual meal with good friends. The space is a bit stark & can be loud - but otherwise comfortable.

Great lay out restaurant with a calming relaxed atmosphere. Food was lovely and a nice variety of modern dishea but not really big portion for more than two sharing. Food was quick and perfectly paced between dishes.

Food was nice but they did not have enough staff to provide adequate service.
Hi there Todd, and thanks for taking some time to leave us a little feedback. We will be putting more staff members on and training existing staff members more to ensure this doesn't happen again. We hope you'll come back and give us another go!

Beautiful venue and great food
Hi Lizzie, delighted to hear that you love the venue as much as we do. Come back in soon and try some more of our wonderful dishes, you can't miss the pate, intercostal beef or wood fired full fish in my opinion. Have a lovely day.
