Just visited the new Groovetrain in Greensborough and had the best smashed advocado for breakfast. Staff were friendly and food was amazing. Will definitely be back.

Been to this outlet this afternoon with few work colleagues amazing atmosphere and service has changed by miles after this change of management. Waitress was very attentive and attention to detail was very surprising, food was decent although we were not planning to eat but was sold just because of her effort.

Called in for a light lunch with my husband, son and daughter in law. We decided to share a couple of mains. My son ordered nasi goring while we ordered fish and chips. The meals arrived promptly and staff were obliging in providing additional crockery and cutlery. The nasi goring was tasty but wold benefit from more spices. The fish... More

Staff weren't overly enthused to be there but were not rude. Took 20+ minutes for eggplant chips, calamari and cookies and cream shake. Hardly any calamari on plate. It actually looked weird. Granted it is an entree but still very small. All food was yummy. A little bit more balsamic on the eggplant chips would have been great as there... More

I haven't been here for 2 years, the menu has become very basic with all the expected choices. It has lots it's chic appeal and had become your very average greasy salty food Don't order anything like the steaks or pizzas as they are no better than your average take away ! Food is terrible for the price, very disappointed

We came here on a Thursday night prior to some Christmas shopping and were surprised at how quickly we were served our meals. My niece had the grilled chicken salad and said the chicken was moist and tender while my sister loved her salt and pepper calamari. I had the polenta stack with roasted vegetables and was very happy with... More

Smelly when you walk in. Food needs improvement. Chicken salad leaves were dead and chicken dry. Friends had risotto and they didn't like it. All round dirty feel to place. Wait staff good. Needs to improve for a Westfield tenant!

It was quiet when we arrived on a Saturday morning, but quickly got busy during the morning. The vegetarian breakfast was good, but unexciting, however the corn fritters with salmon were excellent - generous and very tasty. A good selection for breakfast, from simple toast to more interesting dishes and it was worth insisting on a window seat - great... More
