    Excellent food, great service. Very friendly staff. Ordered entrees and mains. The pork donuts and notorious burger was incredible. Hats off to one of their staff members - Georgia - who was friendly and provided great service. Will definitely be back.

    Very generous sized portions. I ordered the lamb shoulder. Very tender cut, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Veggies were crisp and tasty. Berry smoothie was very refreshing to wash it all down!

    As a local I first found piggy smalls when it opened up its hole in the wall cafe in keilor east. Was looking forward to dining at its new cafe and considering they were offering 50% because of the fork festival it was the perfect time to try. Before even making the booking we knew we wanted the ribs, especially after seeing the picture of them in their thefork profile. We arrived, were given menus and given a few minutes to go over them. The waitress came back and we ordered he ribs, her response was "oh i noticed you booked through the fork, the ribs and steaks are not part of it". I brought up the booking page and showed her how it clearly said their were no restrictions except for drinks. She came up with something about that was an old menu and ribs are new.....cool so why is there a picture of ribs as your restaurant image if they're new? Why does it not say specific items like other restaurants do? Clearly by the empty restaurant they seem to be struggling but they should probably focus on not cheating their customers, that way they'll want to return and support them.

    Food and service was okay ! Disappointing to be told that steaks and ribs were not available when menus were handed to us. The confirmation email clearly said no set menus and drinks.were available only a la carte was !!
