    Our waiter was amazing - he was friendly and explained the dishes to us very well. The interior was very nice with comfortable seating. I highly recommend the pork jowl which is pulled at your table.

    This restaurant was a great find. Its money for value and the food taste bloody amazing. We got the tasting menu and a few extra dishes from the a la carte menu and every dish did not disappoint. I definitely recommend this place and we'll be coming back for sure.

    An absolutely outstanding dining experience. My second visit in the space of a couple of weeks. Refined, creative, balanced, flavoursome, I could go on. Keep up the fantastic work guys. I'll be back soon.

    We were convinced by the amazing reviews to try Soul Dining. The tasting menu was interesting and very nicely presented. But to be honest, the food just wasn't all that flavoursome, which was a disappointment. The staff were great, the atmosphere and décor really pleasant. But for $65/head plus wine, we've had much better taste experiences (eg at Sugarcane Coogee). So we won't be back, sorry!
