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.

Over priced, drinks - a glass of wine which was scaresly a standard serv, min $15. The meals we had were average; Entree - toasted bread & 3 dips in the tiniest of tapas bowls. Main - Rice with the Asian dishes looked & tasted...like it was re-heated from the previous day. Definitely was not freshly cooked.More

We came here based on the reviews and were not disappointed. Busy restaurant, food was delicious, good selection of beverages. Each serving was well prepared and great flavours. Staff could have been less abrupt, but they were run off their feet. Will be back.

This WAS one of the best eateries in Central Queensland. Went with a large group keen for a culinary journey of asian fusion. Arrived at 6:30. Seated, 1st round of drinks and ordered entree and mains. tick tick tick. All this within 15 minutes. Entree...took 40 minutes to arrive, but was split so we got half of the entrees 20minutes after the first. 2 hours from order we checked on our mains and were told they would not be long. 3rd table to sit (out of 12) and then last to be served. Table wasn’t cleared between courses. Meals arrived 8:40pm - no explanation. Meals arrived in a mix between inedible, cold and over cooked. Bar closed before our food arrived. Was then asked to eat quickly because they shut at 9.More

Arriving in Emerald we needed a restaurant after a long day travelling. This place came up as near our hotel. We were seated immediately by very friendly staff. Both of us were impressed with the food and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. Very often...when travelling it is either chips or salad with the main meal. Here it is seasonal vegetables. We will go back before we leave.More

The restaurant is tastefully appointed and decorated, the wait staff are polite and efficient, the food is plentiful and nicely prepared. This is certainly the best restaurant I have eaten in in Emerald. I ordered the sticky lamb rack which was very tasty and served...with lovely creamy potato bake, fresh corn, beans, cauliflower and broccoli. Nothing to complain about here.More

This place serves up some really nice dinner offerings and overall the services is good, sometimes a bit slow but you sure don't feel rushed. They are closer to the airport than town and maybe the breakfast lunch crowds are bigger but of the 4...times we have eaten there in the past couple months the dining room is near empty for dinner. There is a a variety of choices, both for entrees and mains and while you will see the usual fare like steaks and pasta dishes they throw in a bit of Asian and Indian to balance it all out. Last night there were 5 of us who are all in Emerald for a work project and the food was generally received quite well by all. We ordered some starter entree dishes, the Turkish bread is to die for! Also the oysters were fresh and very plump and sweet tasting. Squid was cooked perfectly. For mains, I had a Chicken Korma which was not too spicy as I had requested which was perfect for me. One in our group had a steak which was very tender and 3 of the others enjoyed the salmon teriyaki. We had one order of the sticky date pudding and all shared some bites, it is really very good and oh so rich! They have a decent wine list as well as full bar drinks, the wines are moderately priced. My only negative would be I found the chairs a bit uncomfortable after being seated for awhile. I think they are a plastic type resin chair like one for outdoors but they have a nice slop cover over them but they do get hard after sitting in them for an hour.More

A busy night that little impact on delivery. Had the signature grill - a huge protein fix ( would leave the sausage out as it was below par) the rack of lamb was as good as I have ever had, wagyu rump was also very...good. Faultless and excellent quality meal. Justifying being a signature dish. The staff were pleasant, prompt and very efficient Thank you, look forward to a returnMore
