The staff were professional and friendly. We received a phone call from them prior to our arrival to advise us that a problem existed with the kitchen that was out of their control and for this reason, they were unable to offer their full menu that evening. They were giving us the option to cancel. We decided to proceed with our booking and were pleased that we did. Our only complaint was that the jumbo prawns were over cooked and therefore not enjoyable. Feedback was given to the staff when paying the bill and they responded by saying that this was due to the issues they were experiencing in the kitchen that evening.

Waiters should have suggested that we order sides with the mains as the description looked like there were vegetables with the main but it was just a plate of meat

Good food and service compromised by a so-so atmosphere which impacted on value-for-money. A very large space with widely spaced diners, and bench seats set lower than the chairs at the same table. Maybe if lightly booked only use the tabled section of the restaurant. The staff turned the lights up at 9:30 when we were part way through coffee & liqueurs, we asked them to dim them, which they did and they then turned them up again at 10:00 - poor for a Friday night and poor for the sort of restaurant that Salt Bush aspires to be, in our view.

Needed specialised catering for a guest. Excellent service and specialised menu to accommodate her needs. Everyone very happy.

Great food, realistic prices

Upon leaving I was asked how everything was. I commented that the meal was fantastic but was disappointed with the garlic bread which was thin, tough and hard to eat. I was polite, and my feedback was received positively and pleasantly. This was the only part of the meal which was below expectation. Everything else was tremendous

Amazing service and food

Service was slow - we told waiter we only had an hour lunch break - when he delivered food, he told us duck and lamb takes a long time to cook - if he'd told us that when we placed order, we would have ordered simpler meals. My friend & I tried to have dinner there for my birthday the previous week, but was told they were 'too busy' - we ate next door at Hanuman and noticed there were very few diners at Saltbush. When we returned yesterday, I told waiter it was my birthday, but there was no acknowledgement.

Whilst the evening was a lovely treat for my birthday, I was extremely disappointed that Saltbush could not provide a takeaway container for me at the end of my meal. I understand that some restaurants do not like to do this, but a lot of restaurants in town also attach a sticker to the container to say they take no responsibility for the food once it has left the restaurant. I think this is absolutely fair enough. There was probably half my meal left over, it was delicious but quite rich, and you would have thrown it in the bin. Complete wastage. This could have been lunch or dinner the next day. I think Saltbush need to re-evaluate this aspect, especially since the neighbouring restaurant at the hotel does offer the option of takeaway at the end of the meal. Such a waste of beautiful food, going straight to the trash makes me reluctant to spend money there in future.
