I love Kneading Ruby, always have, but the Kipfler Potato dish has changed and I’m so sad, it’s not quite the same.

12/10 everything was amazing, excellent service & delicious high quality food. Nice beers on tap. The gnocchi was something I wouldn’t attempt at home & was soooo good, we shared with friends, having the beef cheeks, salad & pizza. All cooked to perfection. Very very tasty food.
The only disappointing part is when you get full haha. Best restaurant in Wollongong!
& make sure you try the garlic bread.

The food and service is always outstanding at Kneading Ruby. It’s one of those places that is great for a special occasion but also just as good for a quick pizza on a Friday night

Gnocchi was amazing. So light and fluffy. Pizza was delicious. Pretty trendy restaurant more for your 20 to 50 yr old clientele. Good luck finding the front door, it's a bit hidden. Service was amazing. A bit pricey, but for a special date night, worth it.

Dinner was as amazing as always! Felt so comfortable with the social distancing arrangements in place but it certainly hadn’t lost the atmosphere which we love. I wish I could afford to eat there more often - this is our go to special place!

This was my husband & I first time here , although we were with family that come here often . My husband and I were extremely happy. The food was absolutely delicious , the best we have had for a long time on a night out . The service was excellent and so friendly . The cocktails amazing ! The atmosphere was great & relaxing . We would drive here from Sussex Inlet just for dinner , the food again was just so yum 😋

Fantastic menu and choice of food. By far one of the best restaurants in Wollongong! The staff went above and beyond to cater for our dietary needs. They were friendly, very knowledgeable and attentive. Great ambience and vibe. A very clean and COVID safe venue. Our table had an outstanding experience and could not fault it. Will be back soon.
