The food looked yummy, but unfortunately the food I ordered had coriander in it, and I am highly allerigic to it.
I would have like to see the ingredients on the menu it only stated 3 ingredients none of which were coriander. I would have paid and ordered something else but our orders weren't taken till 7.30pm we arrived at 7pm and food came out at 7.55pm and our show opened for upstairs at 8pm. So I didn't have time to reorder unfortunately. The table staff were very lovely but they were run off their feet trying to do everything. So I was disappointed but it had nothing to do with your helpful staff but more to do with running of the venue and wait times. Oh and the cocktail I had for dinner was very delicious.
More staff and it would have been perfect! Food amazing and staff lovely but we didn’t see them after our food was delivered ... no extra drinks therefore purchased.
Busy spot as usual but always good. Good service too.
We went for dinner on NYE. The vibe was good, the food was amazing!! If it wasn't for the great food I would probably think twice about going back. This was due to the service, or lack of that we received. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that we were just unlucky on the night. The main issue was a female staff member, who seemed highly confused the whole time we were there. From the outset she got all our info wrong, seem very out of it. She also then brought a drink over that we hadn't ordered and then dropped it on us. It was an accident, however there was a hurried 'sorry' and nothing else. She didn't even bring a cloth over to help clean up. We both had sticky cocktail on our clothes, the seat and table. Another staff member then bought over the same drink that we again had not ordered! Anyway the food was lovely so we will give then another go and hope for better service.
Great place good vibe fresh food
We enjoyed the food. The service was somewhat tardy and the music was so load you could not have a conversation with our friends. After several requests, the noise level was reduced to a more reasonable level.
I think most people go out to lunch to catch up with friends, good food and good conversation. Others go fo business reasons.
Load music prevents both of these.
Food was quite good but not particularly authentic for Asian fusion. If you’re looking for quick tapas style food in a casual pub environment this is the place. Food served pretty quickly considering there were clearly lots of new summer staff working that evening!
Food was EPIC. So delicious and service was prompt from ordering to clearing tables. Also they bill split. Friendly staff and great overall vibe. We will definitely be returning
The food is absolutely delicious. You think you're going to get pub food and then they knock your socks off with their cuisine. We go for the food. The happy ambience is a bonus.
Food was delicious cocktails were amazing :)
Great night catching up with friends
Expensive Asian style sharing menu.
Food lovely but if you don't like Asian no lt much other choice. Nice hipster style venue. Love the decor.
Was seated in the Bursary (old bank safe) was lovely & cosy & private dinner for the 6 of us. Loved it.
I enjoyed this venue just because it was booked prior to a show.
The waiter was so preoccupied he forgot a drink he brought food incorrectly
A shame because the food was great but you want to eat what you order
Good selection of Tapas style Asian Fusion food perfect for sharing. Overall, the food was tasty especially the crispy fish salad. Would definitely go back again. Wide selection of food on the menu which is great.
This is the second time we have been to see an artist, this time it was Black Sorrows, as usual they were brilliant.
We love coming to the Publican for these events as the atmosphere is vibrant and the food devine, it is nice an cosy and we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times. Both times we took different friends and they also loved the place.
The food and the service was very good. A different menu than the normal run of the mill places. I would certainly recommend a visit here
Food and service was great. Definitely go back again.
Beautiful food. Somewhere i would definitely go back to throughly enjoyed the food and experience.
An absolutely delicious lunch as it is everytime. Thank you
The food is out of this world. Have booked again for this Friday and I was there last Saturday night too. My new fave restaurant in Mornington.
We came and ate dinner on Monday 15th Oct 18 before the Akmal comedy show. There was six of us and the restaurant was understaffed. Two orders of the Kung Pow chicken was ordered and was inedible by everyone, too hot and had a metallic taste to it. It should be renamed Kung Pow Chilli as there was hardly any chicken anyway. When we paid for the meals we told the lady who spoke broken english what amount each we would like to pay. One person was overcharged $10 and the last two people had to pay extra but unsure how this happened. I believe she didn't add the bill up correctly and we actually probably paid over $50 extra on a bill where hardly any of the food was nice. Will not be coming back to eat only drink.
We visited Publican in Mornington for lunch, the food was absolutely delicious and the drink choice was a wide variety! The vibe was great, it wasn’t to busy when we visited so it was a nice quiet enjoyable lunch!
Food was pretty good
Most of the dishes were nice but the calamari was too salty and stuck together.
Service was friendly but very understaffed.
Had to collect drinks from the bar after they were sitting there for 10 minutes.
Took forever to get served and when asking the staff member about the menu he said he was new so didnt know much about it.
Meals came out quickly and were good value.
They needed at least another 2 staff members on or the same amount on but professionals.
Loved the $7 glass of Verve on Wednesdays. Food was fantastic & very tasty. Staff friendly too.
The meal was ok for the price.
Small serves as noted.
Service was too slow though for a Saturday night and the place is just too noisy when wanting to have a chat with friends. Once it's busy it's hard to hear yourself think.
Food good quality but rich not usual Asian taste
Great food, great value, wide selection of sharer pieces to choose.
Great ambience and vibe when you entered the restaurant. Service good and consistent throughout the day. Food was delicious. We shared a number of dishes so could try all the flavours. A little on the pricey side but would definitely come back again and would recommend to others.
Lovely place to eat food was delish. I would only say to the owners increase your waiting staff as the rest filled the service decreased we had to wait along time for the table to be cleared and dessert menus to be offered.
Our first time. Had dinner before Tim Rogers show. Great evening. Would love a larger selection of Stout. Guinness on tap is good but we are spoilt with quality stouts in this country, even local breweries.
Curry night -$15 can’t go wrong. Open fire and fusion menu makes it a great local.
One of the best restaurants in Mornington for good quality food. Highly recommended.
Best lunch date we’ve had in years! Service was brilliant, meal was superb and the environment was a delight.
Love the bang bang chicken ! Came back 3 times in one weekend just to get out fix before going home!!! Thank you to all staff for being so friendly and accommodating!
We will return !
The curry was sensational and the service was great and our waitress made us feel welcome .
Great setting but food very salty. Friendly staff, Some interesting food choices. Just disappointed about the salt content of the meal.
We came to Renee Geyer, which was an eye opener, we felt that she was drunk, disorderly and
her top denture kept falling down. She also only played for approximately 50 minutes which we
felt was not very long.
Just wonderful! The food is amazing with wonderful flavors that compliment each dish. We would have preferred our main meals at the same time, but it was such good food that we'll let that slide.
Our waitress was a delight! Very attentive and with great knowledge about the history of the building!
We will be sure to return next time we visit the Peninsula. We hope to see you again Kristal.
Service was ok, had to keep calling for top up drinks and would of definately liked to order more food, but was just given the bill and said its turning into a nightclub now. Would of liked to know when was last call for food. Also once stayed in the upstairs nightclub bar area, the bar service was absolutely shocking. No one was serving anyone just washing glasses and serving every 10 minutes. Had to go downstairs to order more drinks. Made it for an annoying night wasting all your time waiting in line on a Saturday night.
Despite explaining a peanut allergy to the waiters and confirming the dish with cashews didn’t have peanuts... it had peanuts. Because they were chopped we couldn’t really tell until most of it had been eaten. My husbands mild peanut allergy meant he suffered symptoms for 12 hrs afterwards.
The waiter informed us we should just avoid Asian food in future..! We’ve never experienced this lack of regard before and fusion Asian is something we quite often enjoy.
