Epci! You guys rock! I attend on a regular basis and almost comatose myself immediately by consuming too much of this epic goodness. I used to be shy wanting to order 2 x entrees, 3 x mains and 2 x desserts for myself, but I stopped worrying and now I do not hold back at all. Recently to my delight, my workplace was looking to hold a dinner function here. It was a very exciting feeling being able to gorge myself for free without shame. I was full of win, however, I was dissapointed after they decided to have a set course meal. This meant I could only consume the allocated rations that were presented upon me. Whilst this was an absolute pleasure to be at the restuarant again, my untamed urges were urging me to consume more and more. Unfortunately I had to settle for 2x Cricketers Packs and a 10 piece Bucket from KFC. on the way home. On a positive note, I attended the next day asap to get my usual fix and all was good. The only thing I can suggest to improve is maybe dimming the lights a bit so no one stares at me when I eat, and perhaps offer a larger meal size for the larger gentlemen like myself. Next to Food2Go you guys rock! Winning!

The hostess was abrupt and not particularly welcoming when we asked to be seated at the free table at the front. After continually being hassled by numerous waiters offering us drinks they forgot to take our meal order. After half an hour when the meals arrived one of them were completely wrong. Lovely food, but the staff definitely let it down. As a local I wouldn’t recommend it, and it obviously survives on the pure location.

We had a meal last Saturday at Dundees which was an absolute highlight of our holiday. The staff were very friendly and kind, and accommodated my request for a combination of items on the menu, having barramundi with the sauce and accompaniments meant to go with the tuna. It was the most delicious meal I've had in a long time. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection and very tender. It wasn't expensive, and even though we were very late when we arrived, and hardly anyone was left, they were still happy to serve us.

I'd highly recommend them to anyone.

I went to your restaurant with my People to People delegation from the United States. The service was excellent, the food was terrific. The atmosphere was nice but cozy. I had Fettucine Alfredo and Koala soup. The Koala soup was my favorite! It was my favorite thing that I ate in Australia. I told my mum about it but she doesn't know how to make it. I was wondering if you might be able to give her the recipie. I wish we had a Dundees here in Oklahoma City, OK USA! I'm an eleven year old boy and I think Australia rocks!! Besides the snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, your Koala Bear soup was the best on my trip.
