The music was too loud and you can not hear yourself talking which was very annoying because my kids took me their for early
Mothers day and when i was talking to them i had to scream and they did too otherwise we could not hear each other. Next time should put the music down abit so people can enjoy their food and not losing their voice trying to talk and have to scream to be able to be heard

Me & hubby had a date night first time in 6 years with no kids so we came to hurricane’s I was so excited to eat Ribs.
Once we were seated with our drinks the waiter informed me that the beef, lamb and pork ribs are all cooked together in the same sauce!!! I don’t eat pork and this devistated me as I love Beef Ribs! I can never come back again!!!
Yes I know your meats are not helal but Why don’t you just cook them all seperate and not let the juices mix. I’m heart broken please letme know when this changes.

The food is usually good here, but their cakeage charge was ridiculous. My sister bought a cake for my birthday along with paper plates and plastic forks however we were charged cakage of $3 pp even though we did not require assistance and the staff did not help in anyway. We thought that was pretty rediculous and a rip off considering we only had a small cake and helped ourselves! All the manager said was we didnt notify them we were bringing a cake. What difference would that have made? Nothing at all as they would still charge for it even though they didnt lift a finger! What a rort!

I was shocked at how bad the food was.
Considering we have been once before and were impressed with our meals hence the return for my birthday.
My wife steak was terrible the scotch was so thin it was dry AF.
Whoever you order your lamb racks from I suggest taking off the outter layer of skin on the top so we can actually eat them with ease considering the price.

Dissapointed guys but that’s not to say I wouldn’t return for another try.

Sorry guys I had to be honest with you
The first time was great but Saturday night no good

Cups are dirty. After the waitress poured the table water in my cup, I noticed there was a dead fly floating. I called her to let her know to ask for a new cup. No apology.
The ribs I ordered was overcooked and not enjoyable for the price I paid.

Nice but not overly fantastic meat, same steak with chips AND salad at the local pub is just as good, and half the price.

$55 for a plate of meat and a handful of chips is excessive. Our family of 5 spent $330 on basic meals, could have bought a cow for that or had a weekend away

Sat with no water or service - or offer to take a drink order - at the table for a good 10 minutes, then once we had ordered had 2 other wait staff ask us the same question within 5 minutes.

We are a regular patron at this restaurant chain and as always the food was fantastic. The runner that brought our meal was very friendly and attentive, took away the empty plates and make sure we were all good. The waiter however was busier cleaning up and resetting the table instead of looking around to see if there were any customers that needed attention. I took a great effort to get her attention to place our second order that I gave up and find someone else who was kind enough to take our order. The food came not long after since they were closing up so there were not many customers. I found out that is the best time to come to dine here: around 5pm or after 9pm on the weekend. Great food, we will always come back. Hopefully next time we get a better and more attentive waiter to serve us.

It took a while before our order was taken - we had to flag down a waiter. The food arrived promptly and was tasty. It was very noisy in the restaurant, I could barely hear my husband who was sitting opposite me! As it was Sunday, we were charged extra, on top of an already expensive meal.

The food wasn’t bad but it wasn’t the best ribs and steak I’ve had. When your renowned for something then you really need to deliver. I don’t mind paying over the average price for food if I’m going to be blown away by it but the food was definitely average. The staff where not overly attentive and the surroundings were basic. I definitely don’t see myself going back or recommending to friends.

Hurricanes at Brighton Le Sands has great view of Botany Bay. Food was as good as always and the noise level of other patrons was really loud but considering it was a huge family having a birthday. Before they arrived the usual chatter from all is what was heard. This is normal and if you don't like this then put up and have a great meal with great company. Thank you Hurricanes very accommodating.

Have dined at other venues on many occasions and have experienced what you would expect from a fast food place such as Hurricanes. Set menus and quick turnover.
The noise at this venue is terrible as all surfaces are hard and low Celings means that noise just keeps bouncing around, kids screaming, chairs scraping the floor general chatter echoes all evening
Staff seemed focus on doing their own responsibilities with diligence so the request to remove the bowl containing rib bones was received with " I'll get someone to come over" rather than simply move them
When to food arrived every meal was cold the beef ribs, the lamb ribs and the pros ribs had all been sat on a surface somehwere for a whil as the BBC sauce was dry
The evening was only rescued by the company we were in, but the family next to us was having the same issues with cold food....difficult to send back as you were on the clock to finish and leave by 9.00 pm
Considering we spend $300 which is not here nor there as a bill goes I really felt that for theirs if this was a special occasion they would have felt left down .......a lot
I have written this with zero emotion just reflection on an evening I would have expected to have been much more professional and much much better food service.
May go back to city venues as I host many many clients before with no complaints but will NEVER visit this establishment again without good reason
Hope this assists others

Service was prompt and the food was reasonably good quality however the steak basting sauce was bland and spoilt the meal. Under seasoned and lacking any flavour. Nice quality food but the overall experience was more like a cheap chain resteraunt than a premium brand. Wine list too dumbed down and overpriced. Nice view from the window.

Took 1 hour to get our food. Noticed people that came after us were served their food before us. The staff had attitude when I asked how long. I do understand it was a busy night but I booked a week earlier and was treated poorly. I doubt I'll be going there again.

We actually love Hurricanes food
BUT....... the service is shocking!!!!!!
7 of us dinned, we were only offered one round of drinks on a 40 degree day, only after we asked for them, they only care about getting your food order in, we asked another waiter to get our waiter... never turned up, so we asked another if our waiter died? he asked why? when we said we wanted drinks he thought it was funny!!
Was not a busy night!!!

We made an early reservation only to be placed in a terrible location. Walk-ins received better tables. We were only a group of 5. When we asked for a better table we were refused despite there being a better table available.
Waiters continually stood over the top of us taking plates off our tables before we had finished our meals (mind you we did not extend past our allocated time of 1hr and 15 min).
I was a fan of Hurricane's but not anymore.

Booked for an early family dinner with young kids on a summer Saturday. Other families also had the same idea. Hurricanes does pretty well for them - generous and well cooked portions of the usual kids choices. Our mains were excellent although the grilled chicken was huge. My wagyu special steak was perfectly cooked and the best Ive had for a long time but on the pricey side and took up half our total bill. Hurricanes ribs are always excellent and justifiably popular. Staff are efficient and busy. My only complaint is the noise. The review options suggest energetic. I thought just noisy. But definitely worth another visit

Good service and food. Did not appreciate the fact we had a set time limit for the table considering our booking. Was a particularly hot day, when asked to bring table water the waiter brought back water which was not cold. Sounds trivial, though some initiative would have been nice. He did provide ice. Overall a nice experience and would return.
