The table we had for 7 people was a bit cramped for the 4 on one side.
Booking for 7.15 but table was not ready and had to wait. Was not offered any drink service while waiting.
Once at table again a bit of a wait for drinks service.
Waiting staff were nice.
Food was lovely but felt a bit of a wait in between courses and they come very speratically. Some people had food and others had to wait a while.
Felt they were a little understaffed for the amount of people in the restaurant - was very full. Still a very enjoyable dinner.

Great food - as always - and great service. Much more attentive service than previous years. One food docket went astray, leaving us one dish short, otherwise service would definitely have rated five stars.

Crowded, noisy, and understaffed for a Saturday evening full house. Previous visits were on weeknights and those were very enjobable. Won't go back on a Friday or Saturday night.

Asian themed cuisine at its best. Can’t highly recommend this place! Be aware that when ordering the venue does not bring out all the orders at once; it’s staggered, so food is meant to be shared between diners at that table. Does make it awkward if a large table of diners order just for themselves. Also does get noisy indoors.

Beautiful food, awesome service BUT it was so HOT inside… would have loved to stay a little longer but it was just toooooo HOT. I’ll give it another try but the staff advised the Aircond was on full so I’m guessing it will hot next time too.

My husband and I went there for our anniversary, the thing that ruined the night for us was we kept getting forgotten by the kitchen.. We saw a table of 8 turn up 15mins after us and ordered the same as us (Feed Me) they all got their meal before us. When we finally said something to waitress our meal got brought to us but then when it was time for our dessert we waited over 1/2 hour and still nothing, so again we said something to the waitress who couldn't then stop apologising to us for the rest of the night. It was to be a great night but was marred by being our experience. The only saving grace this time around was that the food was great - when we eventually got it.

This restaurant is a cracker, food, service, beautiful decor, It was just excellent. My only criticism is that it is hard to get in. I use a large wheelchair and I found that there was plenty of space, the staff just looked after me.

It was my great nieces 21st and they were just me her and her boyfriend. I can’t say enough about the variety of food, and being a real foodie you serve some magnificent plates with food that I’ve never eaten before. Variety was spectacular. Unfortunately I’m not drinking at the moment so was not able to check out your one list, maybe one day. Thank you

Excellent food. Thai Seafood curry with Jasmine rice was great as too were the Mushroom Spring rolls.
Cocktails were very good if a little pricey.
Our bottle of water which still had a glass worth of water in was grabbed and taken away without asking and no explanation as to why by the waiter, so I asked for another. That was a surprise and a shame to an otherwise excellent meal.
Will come back again as we really enjoyed the food.

We had a really good night at the Shorehouse. On arrival the four of us decided we couldn't decide on food choices so we opted for the 'Just feed me' option where they serve up a selection of their most popular and best dishes ($59pp - 2 person min). We were served scallops, spring rolls, slow cooked beef, pork, chicken curry, Asian greens and rice followed by an amazing brulee. We were told the options before we ordered and they could have been modified to suit. Everything was great, as was the service. We will definitely be back.

Amazing food, the chiefs menu was excellent, although the curry tasted amazing it did not work with the rest of the menu. The service we received was some of the best we had experienced, our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, attentive and nothing was to much; thank you.
