Jai Ho Indian Restaurant

We attended with a group of 10 and found the service to be a little hap hazard at times as the restaurant was quite busy. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The food was tasty and plentiful - we had the 4 course banquet. Overall a pleasant evening.

The Imperial South Yarra

South Yarra

Allan dined on Wed, 8th Mar 2017 (2)

Very poor food and drink service, tapas dishes were delivered to the table without plates or cutlery- we had to request them and waited another 10 minutes for them to be bought to the table. Over priced for what is on offer. There are plenty of other options in the area to choose from give this one a miss.

Petit Tracteur

Main Ridge

Allan dined on Mon, 6th Mar 2017 (9)

From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable, from being met at the door to being seated, ordering drinks and meal to leaving the staff were friendly and attentive to our needs remembering who was drinking what and what each person in our party of four ordered. Every dish we had was chef presented and tasted amazing. The duck leg is an absolute must have main course - the best duck I have had anywhere in the world. Expensive but worth every cent. We will return.

Glenferrie Hotel


Allan dined on Tue, 27th Dec 2016 (8)

Great pub meals. Good dining space not too noisy as some places can be. Staff were a little pushed on the night being a public holiday and the number of diners being higher than expected, however they were efficient and friendly.
