“Very dry, overcooked Tofu Donburi - don't order this!!”
Review of Too Hands Cafe

Too Hands Cafe
Ranked #2 of 13 Restaurants in New Lambton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 March 2024

I ordered the Tofu Donburi which certainly looked appealing based on the menu description. The tofu was supposed to be in a sticky teriyaki sauce. It was dry and chewy, with no hint of stickiness and the flavour was very poor. The shitake mushrooms were destroyed by being overcooked, shrivelled up and dry. The rice was dry, and was there supposed to be sesame oil?? I didn't taste anything remotely sesame in this dish. If this was someone's first try of tofu they would be turned off for life. As someone who knows how to cook tofu properly I found this a pathetic attempt. At $26.90 I expected a much higher standard. If you can't cook it properly please remove it from the menu!!!

Staff are arrogant and rude, and do not promote a friendly, family experience. We left before ordering.

One of many local cafes in my area, Too Hands is great - friendly staff, table layout suits workers with quiet corners + power for laptop users, consistent and hearty food. Service is sometimes a little slow, possibly due to lack of staff rather than service provision. Those working here will always great you with a smile and love to get to know their regulars.

Worst place- waited for ages for someone to acknowledge us and take our order.. they didn’t so we got up and left! Putrid customer service! Went across the road for a pub lunch. Much better!

Not going to win any awards for ambience and food but fine for a quick bite and a catch-up. Big space, average service and meals. Been a few times because opening hours are longer than elsewhere in the area. Could get rid of those awful rafters where the pigeons cluster, not a good look.
