    A long trusted and reliable venue, intimate booth seating and friendly wait staff but not intrusive. Delicious meal with full and light options; the pumpkin gnocchi was tasty and generous, have taken some home! Wasn’t mad on the “background music” a bit pedestrian but no other complaints. All in all a very pleasant 3 hours spent with an old friend

    My husband and I ordered the lamb shoulder and it tasted like reheated food. Very disappointing as we were looking forward to our first visit to The Kensi. My friend ordered the garfish which was fine.

    Steak was very tough and disappointing. Salmon also over cooked. Nice atmosphere though so surprisingly bad on the food . Service was friendly so no problems there.

    We were celebrating my mother's 80th birthday. We were seated in the atrium as I had requested. The staff were polite, friendly and joined in with congratulations to my mother. The meal was lovely, great choice of menu and well priced. The final lovely gesture, as we were leaving the waitress who had looked after us thanked us for choosing the Kensi to celebrate the special birthday. Could not fault anything, thankyou Kensi for making the evening lovely!

    The cocktails and food quality/taste didn't match expectations for the price paid, that being said, was still tasty. Staff were helpful and super friendly, however did ask if we were ready to order every 3-5 minutes from us sitting down initially which made it feel very rushed and pressured.

    Unfortunately they didn’t have our booking when we arrived, but thankfully managed to fit us in. Bar service in particular was very slow.

    Nice suburban pub set up. Quite busy so obviously popular. Service was a little disjointed with multiple people coming and going, no real cohesion with ordering. Food was good although we do object to being charged $24 + $3 for basic schnitzel sauces.

    We enjoy lunching here because the atmosphere is calm, no loud music or voices. And the service is always EXCEPTIONALLY friendly and welcoming.

    This was a Christmas visit lunch with two of my grandchildren. The food and service were top-class, and it was wonderful to hear them talking without having to strain over strenuous noise that often goes with pub bistros. I'd bring loved ones here again.
