    Wednesday lunch special was fantastic. $5 pizzas (for small/regular and $8 for large) and $6 wines unbelievable. I had the large bbq chicken and my friend had a small Hawaiian- both Mary happy with the food. Very quiet so we could chat easily - music in the background non-intrusive. Definitely go back again.

    i really wanted to enjoy this place. I had booked for 9 pm. we weren’t seated on our booking reservation and then we got moved to a crowded place. When I specifically asked for a quiet place. The security guard was very rude and arrogant. The manager was very nice and had moved us to a quiet place after people had left which was very nice and the food was lovely, but the security guard was very very appalling

    We went for happy hour on a Sunday night specifically for pizzas and beer towers. Beer was ordinary, not many varieties, pizza was yummy and cheap. Service was quick. Love being able to select a song via an app.

    We have used the VIP area several times now for random company get togethers, and will do so again. Ideal for the team to get together, drop the laptop bags in one corner, bond, laugh and have fun before heading just downstairs to the trains to get home -all so convenient. Always specials running on drinks and food which is very popular.

    Everything was wonderful, drinks, food and atmosphere was great. However the music was way too loud but not loud enough in the dance area. Need to find a balance.

    had a booking for 10pm but was contacted by staff 1 hour prior telling me that the venue is closing early at 930pm. ABC should not have taken my booking in the first place. it cause a lot of inconvenience with the last minute change.

    Went for New Year’s Eve and paid for a bottomless food and drinks package. Not all the food items on the menu were there on the night and our table was often skipped missing out on some of the items that was brought out. We even requested the arancini balls from the menu and were brought other items with no mention of the arancini. The girls toilets were barely usable due to broken doors and toilets and not enough stock of toilet paper. Additionally the number of drinks served to a person at one time changed throughout the night. Some people had to stay at our table to ensure we didn’t lose it and the others getting drinks could not order any extra drinks to take back for the others.

    The night started well as we were able to jump the queue as we had booked in advance, but they seemed to be stopping that soon after we got in. We bought the bottomless NYE package with bottomless drinks and food for 3 hours from 9pm to 12am. The queues for the bar were long and we were limited to 1 drink per person, which after waiting for over 15 minutes each time was really frustrating. The food service was slow and there was not much of it at all, we got 1 spring roll each and 1 slider and that was it for the whole night. This was after waiting for over 1 hour before anyone brought any food around. Drinks were watered down which was disappointing too.
