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.

Take away only…but very good. Enjoyed the Beef randang, prawn curry and fish and chips. Highly recommend , and before we move onto our next journey, we’re going back for another Beef randang….😋😋

It is a same that, probably due Covid, this is now take away only. We are normally not really people who get take-away food. But this "restaurant" is located at the Kalbarri Palm resort where we stayed. So it was really convenient. While walking passed,...we saw that they had Beef or Chicken rendang. This is one of our favorite meals. So we decided to get this. Luckily I said to my husband, just get one portion and this was enough for us two and for my husband the next day. It was really nice. So good that we went back a couple of days later to get it again. Staff was very friendly as well.More

Good serves and authentic taste. Indonesian beef rendang, prawn thai red curry, and chicken parmigania. Enough to choose from and fast service for takeaway. We returned again for another night. Be prepared for the heat in the curries

I grabbed dinner from here twice while staying at the motel. It’s tucked inside with plenty of parking behind. The vegetarian curry was wonderful (especially after a week of bbq/sandwiches/fried food) and the rendang pretty special too. Curry servings were easily enough for 2 meals...(I wish they did half portions!).More

I messaged them to book a table for a dinner thinking to try the cuisine as my partner and I are big foodies, they just said it wasn’t possible and that was it. Nothing else. How are we supposed to go from there?

What is wrong with this place and the opening/closing hours? For what I can see in reviews I haven't been the only one with this problem. I went there 3 times, ALWAYS CLOSED. It's disappointing. Giving 2 starts (and not 1) just because honestly didn't...even have the chance to try the food that's why I'm being generous. I'd suggest to communicate by social media if you are gonna be closed. Even the staff should known better because they told me to come back the next day which I did and it was closed AGAIN. Sad experienceMore

Simple menu but done very well. Family liked it so much the first visit we rebooked 2 days later. Bookings are essential but definitely worth it! Two of the best meals we had this trip

This little restaurant is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. Tasty Malaysian style food, generous servings at really good prices. Quick service. BYO wine, beer as not licenced.

Able to book us in when we where only here for two nights, much appreciated. So glad you did. Really enjoyed our battered cauliflower and magnificent pork belly bites. So tasty with a lovely fresh salad. We both had curry. The green chicken and Beef...Rendang, really tender and tasty. The young girls serving so friendly and helpful.

What’s fantastic dinner we had has to be the best in Kalbarri we went there twice and could not find fault. If I had any fault to find was the corkage at only $2 but would have been better to incorporate in the meal price...so would be none the wiser. The price to pay for honesty perhapsMore

I was shouted out for a birthday dinner and the meals were a delight, super delicious and tasty. Highly recommend the scallops for entree and coconut lime snapper for main. Interesting quirky atmosphere and as we were leaving I got to bang the gong. Pay...a visit if you’re in Kalbarri and you won’t be disappointed.More

We visited Kalbarri with another couple. On the recommendation of a friend, we booked in here. The decor is a little strange with a large room with very standard tables and chairs. Don’t let it put you off coming here. The restaurant made up for...all of this with the incredibly high quality of food. The menu itself was not too extensive, but what they do, they do well. All food was tasty and well presented. They also offer preprepared meals in take-away containers possibly aimed at building workers and caravaners who did not want to spend the money eating in the restaurant every night, but enjoy eating good food. Things were a little slow in ordering as there were many take-away orders coming in when we were in line to order. Like many places in Australia at the moment I suspect that they were short of staffMore

My wife and I had a top class meal at this bohemian style restaurant located behind the Kalbarri palm Resort reception. Our main was fish (local caught Red Emperor) served with a carrot puree. Starter we chose scallops lightly pan seared and garlic tiger prawns.... Both perfectly done and delightful. Service was quick and staff very nice. Only downside and reason I have not given 5 stars is the restaurant is not licensed but they charge $2 a person "corkage" for bringing your own bottle of wine which pretty much lowers the tone of the place!More
