Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went to Billys for a family dinner with table of 6, waitress was charming, water on the table ordered drinks and trio of dips buy not enough flat bread to clean up the dips which were great. But no serviettes or cutlery at this stage,...put our meal orders in and the first out was a seafood cabanara and still no cutlery then a short while later out came the 4 pizzas, we had to ask for the cutlery and serviettes, food was great although a bit pricey. Just need to put out cutlery and serviettes as soon as orders are placed as we had 1 patron sitting there looking her meal going cold and waiting the wait staff to return.More

The food was disgusting, appalling to look at. 3 of the main dishes had exactly the same white cream sauce on them. No flavour. Lazy cooking, Not sure if the 'Chefs' are qualified. If you cannot get the staff, dont offer the service. Will never...go again, and will let everyone know. Absolute waste of my hard earned money.More

We have been to Billy’s Kitchen several times. Our ritual is to visit Just Cuts then have lunch or dinner at Billy’s Kitchen. The staff, under the old management, have always been very helpful and polite. But this time the service and attitude towards us...was dreadful. For some reason they did not want us with our 6 YO child to sit in the main dining area. Instead, we were shoved off to the side near the toilets and in a very cold part of the restaurant. This has never happened before. We were told that the whole restaurant on one side was FULLY BOOKED OUT. Please keep in mind we did book in advance. Yet, while paying the bill nearly one hour later we noticed there were STILL at least EIGHT EMPTY TABLES. In fact, the main area was almost empty. It seems that they are happy to hold these tables for hours and hours rather than have a mum and dad with one child in this exclusive area. This seemed like a tall story to us. When I questioned the person at the cash register why we were dumped near the toilets some very tall rude person started to butt into our conversation and argue with me. This person should hang their head in shame and find another job. We certainly did not feel like repeat customers. By the way my pizza was undercooked, and my tea was cold. We even had to find a spoon suitable for our child as the table service was a disgrace. As you can guess, no tip this time. To say that I am furious with this restaurant would be an understatement. I will call Knox Centre Management and see if they can suggest a more child friendly restaurant. I have tried to contact the owner but the staff who pick up the phone can’t be bothered. No wonder the place was empty. But wait there is more they even gave us the wrong receipt. Amazing. Way too many problems at this restaurant.More

There were plenty of items on the menu to suit all palates, and none of our party were disappointed with their choices. We sat outside, and the tables were well spaced so we were able to enjoy conversations around our table. Staff were efficient and...very friendly, but were very busy. Our food was served as described on the menu, and very tasty. There was plenty of food without it being too much.More

The guy at the desk gave us a story about being booked up, when there were tables available. We walked away and then walked back just as a group of 6 turned up with no booking and he seated them....capitalising on the covid situation where...people just want to be out. Not impressed at being lied to. Went next door to Groove train...they had excellent service!More

Warm and cosy atmosphere, the staff are very kind but busy, it was difficult to get their attention but when we did get them, they were very helpful and courteous. Ever since the Irish pub left knox i have been looking for a place to...have pub kind of food, the lamb shank at this place is a nice substitute although this is not a pub environment.More

We enjoyed a very good advocado toast. It was served with dukkah, feta, soft poached eggs and pomegranate, on sourdough. This generous meal was delicious, and the coffee was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. We sat outside and found the heaters worked very well.

So good to be able to dine at a restaurant again and support them as we come out of lock down. Billies Kitchen has always been a favourite and it felt good to return and receive good food and good service. To be honest, I...wasn't that hungry, so I decided to choose from the breakfast menu. I had the Berries and Cream French Toast. I was a bit concerned that it may be a bit sweet, but I was happily wrong as it was well balanced. The meal was really well presented and disappeared from my plate quickly. It was just enough and I was very happy with what I had chosen.More

Last minute table for family of 7. Billy's burger was a winner by far but all the food was 10/10 all round. Will definitely be back to sample more of the amazing menu.

Wine on a weekday. Plenty of room to sit and seats are comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The wagyu burger was very juicy and had a large serve of chips. My partner had the salmon and it was lovely. Service was quick and very friendly....Prices are very fair.More

We booked a table for 6 ( 3 couples) and were shown to a generous size table at the rear, a bit apart from the rest of the restaurant. Our waitress introduced herself (Anna) and provided great service all night. Drink orders were prompt and...all our food was delicious. This is a great venue to catch-up with family and friends.More

So they do offer burgers and pizza, worry not! But we fancied something different. Spaghetti carbonara for me and chicken risotto for the missus. Both were substantial and tasty. Combined cost with no drinks 50 aus dollars. Staff friendly and attentive, good and prompt service....Recommended choice.More
