We love Bang Bang - that's why I chose it for my wife's birthday and our first date in almost three years. It didn't disappoint once again, and the food, drinks and particularly the service were outstanding. The lamb ribs - my god!

We went on a Sunday afternoon and sat in the undercover/ indoor area. There were two pretty big tables and the more people were there the louder it it which was a bit frustrating. Great food though. Especially the chicken wings !

The changed menu offers new and exciting dining choices and the addition of a more robust Chardy has also improved the wine list. However the BBQd Eggplant did not cut it. While the dressing was salty and delicious with the mint etc, the small time the eggplant spent on the grill did not result in any caramelising. As a result the flavour was "dull". In addition, because of the size of the eggplant chunks , you needed a knife to eat them which was not provided. Me I would shallow pan fry first then pop briefly on the BBQ to get the grill effect. Just a thought. The is nothing better than the flavour of nicely cooked eggplant. Note: I am not a chef, just an everyday foodie and a fan of Bang Bang.
Cheers, Richard.

Gorgeous setting looking out over a park with a playground behind. Very friendly attentive staff who are happy to go the extra mile. We had a lunch with one bottle of wine and it was $40 per head. Probably could back off on the prices a bit given there are many restaurants to choose from. Good for a very special occasion.

I love the idea of Bang Bang, but find their food on the too higher side of spicy and there is no escaping it, its every dish.

Their pricing is on the higher side also, $39 for a duck curry and then you have to pay extra for the rice is excessive. $18 for a cocktail that is barely filled to the half way mark is also excessive.

The noise level was so high we had to move to an outside table so we could hear ourselves think or have any hope of a conversation.

Having said all that the staff were friendly and efficient
