    We did the $53 pp menu. I was really happy with the ceviche and the cucumber salad. Oysters were small but tasty. And the chicken wings were okay. Disappointed with the main. Steak was a bit tough and not a generous amount to share. Came with plain rice with chips with it. Found the presentation to be a bit disappointing. We all found the whole menu just lacked something. Possibly the main. There were four components to the entree but really only one main. There were chips in the main and the only side was… more chips. Something else needs to be served with it. We were sat at the high table indoors - friends on the other side of the table is a bit too far away, which made it difficult to hear and you had to be loud. The dessert was disappointing - we had the egg custard buns which were a bit meh. Not a good way to finish the meal off. You kind of wanted melted chilli chocolate to dip the bun into. Or something… more. The $43 (cheaper) set menu had fried rice (more flavour) and cheesecake. The cocktails were great. I had the coffee espresso one with whipped coconut cream and nutmeg - REALLY good. And the Rumba something - the sweet/salty combo was excellent. The service started off well, but there was not many moments when someone came to check back on us - and we had to flag down staff to get more drinks. Speaking off which, an alcoholic drink was given to a non-drinking friend and vice versa - not great when they discovered it by drinking it. Only 3 weeks of opening, I hope it’s just teething issues. The menu needs a tweak to be a favourite. If we return, we would order something different.

Kindly email bookings@casachino.c om.au. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to make amends. Kind regards, Team Casa Chino

    What a fantastic experience! This restaurant is top-notch with delicious food, amazing cocktails and excellent service! Our host and server, Mel, truly went above and beyond to take care of us. We had some dietary restrictions (vegetarian, dairy/gluten allergies), and Mel made sure to accommodate our needs with a smile on her face. The entire team was fantastic, and even the chef made sure our requirements were met. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning!

    An incredible total experience... The food was unbelievably good, we ordered many small dishes hoping to have really varied options & that we did. There were some absolute stand-outs; [hint] order the Crab/Prawn Toast (flavour & texture explosion), Prawn Spring Roll, Soy Glazed Mushroom Bao Bun, and the Chicken skewer which is char-grill perfection. Drinks were just as good as the food, and with a more than generous selection. Staff were all friendly & attentive. The ambience was spot on with warm lighting & great tunes playing. The online booking had only allowed us(at the time) tall seating but were kindly offered floor seating as we arrived and IYKYK... super comfortable chairs. Overall, they definitely knew what they were doing with this place. A definite must visit.

    Had a lovely evening at Casa. The cocktails were fantastic & the food was very good. The Manager/owner and wait staff were all very professional & friendly. The ambience and the interior is the standout!!! They’ve only been open 2 weeks, but already they seem to have it “ all together” I’d recommend you try it!

    Went there for lunch with the kiddos on Saturday afternoon and the staff were super friendly and accomodating. The drink selection was well thought off - cocktails and mocktails were great and went well with the food. We had a selection of dishes which were super tasty, the lomo saltado is a must. The ambience was also amazing - the courtyard at the back is such a nice relaxed space and the dining area inside with the open kitchen was very inviting as well. To top it all it is also reasonably priced, hope this joint is here to stay. Definitely recommend and will definitely go back.
