    Great staff, delicious food - a thoroughly enjoyable evening. If I was to criticise anything, perhaps an explanation on the menu of some of the food terminology would be helpful for those of us unfamiliar with food from this region, but the staff are very informative.

    We have been to Inara a few times since its opening and this is one of the best restaurants in Busselton: amazing wine selection and cocktails. Forget about the bad reviews, this is the place to go in Busso.

    Staff are fantastic and explain the meals well to diners. Food is just devine, but serves are very small. We ordered a half a chicken and got what was equivalent to two legs. The music was a bit loud outside and because the tables are close together, it was really difficult to hear each other talk. But, don't let this put you off, the noise is a minor when you taste that amazing food. Will definitely go back.

    Really good. The ambience is a bit minimalist, not cosy but very clean. Food is really good, and service just right. We asked for dishes to be brought out slowly and that was done perfectly. Inara is an interesting, classy and much needed addition to Busselton’s dining scene.

    We had an amazing dining experience. The only sticking point would be the cost of the food. This price point only allows for extra special occasions, I would however dine more frequently if the price points wasn't so high.

    Really enjoyed the food, service and ambience! My only suggestion for diners would be to order a few things at a time as we found all our dishes came a bit too quickly after the first dish which was the hummus and very yummy bread!

    The food was exceptional, so tasty and authentic. Ambiance at the back of restaurant was lacking with the mall noise, but the front and outside was great. Service was a little lacking with delays of drinks, food and being charged for all of another table’s food bill. The staff are all trying very hard just a little polishing needed. Will definitely return when we are back in Busselton.

    Hi, we had the chefs recommendation of 4 dishes and a wine or beer included which was not only excellent value but a tasting treat. We previously had breakfast at INARA which was also excellent, very different and extremely tasty. We recommend INARA to anyone, food was obviously good and the waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and remembered us from a previous breakfast visit. Keith Sims

    We booked a bottomless lunch , which sounded amazing but we were only offered a drink when we arrived and my husband had to ask for a second drink , the waitress had no idea what we had booked and wanted us to choose a meal from the menu , we got that sorted and then had to ask if we got desert included again she didnt know. we waited a very long time for our desert and was told they had been very busy , although the restuarant was only 1/2 full , food was nice but we had no idea what we were eating as no one explained the menu we were disappointed with our visit

    The Mezze menu was amazing, Some of the best dishes I've ever had, and the staff were just beautiful. The aesthetic/design of the restaurant made for a wonderful experience. The only downside is I did feel it was a little overpriced. The lamb was $60 and nothing outstanding, a small piece of cake was $18 which I didn't see the value in although im sure it has amazing ingredients. I did feel the Mezze dishes were worth the price. I plan to go back many times.

    The food was delicious and generously portioned. The only thing I didn’t like was the gluten free pita which was very dense and hard as a rock - I couldn’t get my teeth through it.

    Amazing food - I knew it would be good but it far exceeded my expectations. The flavours were incredible, dishes were beautifully presented and portions were generous. I can't remember the last time I ate so much in a restaurant. Don't skip dessert, because the two we tried were delicious. Inara has a very extensive menu too, so I can see us going back many times so I can try everything. Wine was reasonable and very good, so an added bonus. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. I can see it becoming very busy, so probably best to book!

    Had a set course menu new years eve. Lovely meal, extremely attentive wait staff. Every thing was perfect except for the inner mall view of the ugly neon Times Zone shop frontage opposite detracted from the beautiful ambience of the restaurant, (although I was told they are going to rectify, that but initial costs to fit out and set up restaurant were a fair bit so will do as soon a time and budget permits). Wishing the restaurant and staff all the best. 9/10
