The restaurant (website and menu) calls itself "Modern Asian", but it is really Japanese with a one char siu dish what was overcooked or microwaved. When we arrived, we were seated at a table with flies buzzing against the window next to us. Not a great first impression. The menu was confusing. The servings are very small. The dish "broccoli stems and garlic chives" was the most disappointing, it as the off cuts of a broccoli floret. We were served by 6 waiters and waitresses that one evening, there was no one person dedicated to our table, so it made ordering and servicing haphazard. The wine list was disappointing as well, no BYO on Friday and Saturday but not a great selection for diners. We ordered the char siu dish (we lived in Hong Kong for some years and are a fan of char siu), it tasted like it was reheated in the microwave and they ran out so only gave us a half serving. They did not advise us in advance to give us the opportunity to order a substitute. Young employees with little experience, the owner was not present on the night. Young waitress kept on calling us "guys" and started and ended every sentence with "no worries". Unprofessional.

Started off well and then got forgotten about and there for 2.5hrs for the banquet 9 course meal. Arranged a babysitter for the 2hrs asked when would we be finished after 2.15hrs and then offered we could take our desert take away if we wanted- Food was enjoyable but no real atmosphere and service dull. Left after the 9 course not full including a bottle of wine.

Everything was perfect, but in the banquet menu the portions are very small so the last one is a curry with rice to full you...

the menu was interesting but a little too fusion for my liking, kind of Italian meets Japanese. we were vistors to the area so not really in a position to visit again.

Really wanted to like it menu sounded interesting but just missed the mark. The Chardonnay was very cheap and undrinkable, the buns with wagyu was so tough we couldnt chew it. The fish was nice but no real depth of flavour. The lighting was very bridge didnt feel like a nice setting. Not lot of choice in Berry but wouldnt go again.

About Hungry Duck

South for the winter The gentle rolling hills of Berry are a popular destination for city slickers wanting a bit of green and fresh air – and eateries like Hungry Duck are an equally motivating reason to head south for the winter – or any time of year, for that matter. Hungry Duck is helmed by chef David Campbell whose impressive cooking pedigree includes stints at Wockpool and Billy Kwong. As the name implies, duck features heavily on the menu, with duck three ways (duck spring roll, rare caramelised breast meat and a crisp Szechuan peppered leg) a hit with regulars. Open 6 days for dinner only (no BYO Friday and Saturday), bookings are essential if you want the opportunity to try the Jervis Bay squid chips, crab ravioli, wok-fried saltbush lamb or the Wagyu cheek and tail dumplings. As you can see, the menu is a paean to fresh, local produce cooked in traditional Asian style with a welcome twist. Leave room for dessert, though – you won’t want to miss out on the kaffir and Tahitian lime tart or the warm chocolate fondant with strawberry and lychee sorbet. This cosy diner even has an outdoor area, perfect for summer dining. Best dish: Duck spring rolls
