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.

Food was amazing, some things were a little smaller then expected and some things didn’t come out to the table, good service and had a great night!

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.

What a lovely change. We are just 2 old 60+ ladies who like to eat out. Arrived and seated very quickly with lovely attentive staff. Menus and water straight to the table but not rushed at all. Drinks ordered and again wonderful service which in itself is a nice change from a lot of venues around Geelong. Food ordered and a sit back to enjoy a drink...music not to loud but a bright happy atmosphere. Then the food arrived. Wow...looked great and tasted even better..All share plates but good portions and wonderful flavours. Would I recommend??? YES Would I return...YES and will.

We had been served some very pink chicken, when we acquired if it was raw we got brushed off and told to “eat around it” which was a little upsetting. Other than that the restaurant was nice

The food here is delicious. They were also very accomodating of my food sensitivities and were able to adapt a couple of items to suit. The menu contains an awful lot of garlic!
