    A group of 4 of us come to the Scarf dinners every 3 months to allow the new trainees hone their new hospitality skills - to catch up & enjoy a good meal. For $45 for a 2 course meal - you can’t get much better value and we get to try out a new venue each time. Garden State has been one of our favourites so far. I had the mushroom & truffle pasta which was especially delicious - the mushrooms were perfect with the right amount of truffle oil. The other girls loves their salmon & steak (which was cooked perfectly medium rare). Considering it was a sell out & how busy it was - the meals were spot on. Might have needed a couple of extra staff for all the guests - but that’s what Scarf is all about - learning in a busy environment. As always - we will be back again. ????

    We love the concept of SCARF supporting disadvantaged and refugees in obtaining employment in the hospitality area.

    A great night out for dinner that supports training up young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who face significant barriers gaining employment.

    We dined at the Scarf Dinner & sampled all the goodies on offer. I particularly enjoyed the beef cutlet was more a pulled beef Pattie with a spicy sauce - perfectly cooked & right amount of spice. I also had the chicken which was Yummy! I really enjoyed the cabbage accompaniments & the lite & crunchy papadums. The dal & the mussel curry also were really delicious as well. The only thing that we found a little uncomfortable was the low lighting and the warm temperature - during winter it would be perfect but after a warm day it was simply just a little warm - but not unbearable. Would definitely return to The Rochester for another meal

    We love the Scarf dinners. Its a great way to support a great cause & help new trainees hone their skills - while being able to try new venues & menu's. We enjoy having a quarterly gathering for our group of 4 that gives us something to look forward to every few months :) Keep up the great work

    These dinners are to support refugees and migrants in gaining hospitality experience, and so the service was a bit shambolic, but friendly and well intended. I expect the experience would be quite different every time as a result. Lovely location for it.
