The food was amazing, literally couldn’t fault it. The wait staff however seemed like they didn’t want to be there, we were offered drinks once and just seemed like it was an inconvenience to ask for another drink. The girl behind the bar who settled our bill was extremely lovely though.

Delicious food but the service was shocking! Ordered a cocktail twice and it still didn’t come out. Another table sat down after us and got there drinks and food before us. That made the vibe for my birthday an not very good one!

Gorgeous food and amazing cocktails. Amazing variety and so tasty.
Drinks took awhile each round but they were very busy so understandable.
Did feel as though we were being rushed out the door at 10:30 even though they are open until 12 and we were still ordering drinks.

Great place and atmosphere - try to get in the main restaurant rather than the side room (better atmosphere) definitely go with the share plates. Excellent service and food is sensational although duck pancakes over rated

Lovely decor and very comfy. Wine list good and local. Food good but basic and prepared too early so not fresh enough. Enjoyed but expected better.

Loved Frankies- the decor was light and bright, the service was attentive and the food was fabulous - great quantity on plates for sharing! Loved the peking duck, the Japanese style fried chicken and just the right amount of kick in the pork bao buns!

I visited Frankie with friends and really enjoyed the fact that we could sit and chat comfortably without having to yell over the din of the crowd. Food was great, so was the service.

Food was very tasty but service was appalling. Ordered a drink on arrival and then had to wait 30 minutes and ask 3 more times for the drink while watching others arriving later being served their drinks. Server assiduously avoided eye contact when serving others and while it appeared he forgot the first time made no attempt to take my drink order at any other time. To the restaurant’s credit, when it was brought to the manager’s attention the drink price was removed from the bill. It may have just been a bad night but I won’t be hurrying back.

We were originally seated near the door and on a cold night, it was not very pleasant. But thanks to a beautiful young waitress, we got moved to a lovely and warm corner. The food is delicious and very filling.

We had an 8 pm booking, the food came out quick which was good but the staff did not tell us that the kitchen was closing. It was 9 pm we asked to order desert, and the staff said everything was closed and we couldn’t order anything more. Very disappointing that the kitchen close to an hour after we arrived. We should have been made aware that the kitchen was closing.

Great choice flavours and value, service could just go up a notch with table maintenance and getting orders correct.
I would go back - perhaps an extra staff member and a smile from some waiting staff would change our score

Lovely gorgeous building. Comfy chairs. Friendly staff with a very knowledgeable bartender. Great spirit selection, wine list could have some more interesting wines to suit Asian fusion when thinking about pairing. (Personal taste) for instance Chablis work well with Asian flavours as they don’t get too over powered, but suit people who aren’t interested in the typical Tropical fruit forward wines like eden valley Riesling’s/ Pinot gris.
The baos were amazing, the eggplant/ popcorn chicken & short ribs just lacked flavour. There was just nothing that memorable about them. I think this issue could be easily fixed.
