“Great pizza”

I visit this place regularly and really enjoy the pizza here, it has to be one of the better pizzas in Bris.

That said - Had a bad experience here one visit with a friend when he ordered the lamb shank. When it arrived the lamb shank had been cut off the bone and there was about as much meat as a tiny quail. I have to admit that despite liking this place this really was an embarrassment. All I can think is that the chef was using a single lamb shank for several dishes. We pointed this out to the waitress, who kind of defended it and said that this was how the chef made his deconstructed lamb shank. It was awful and our friend left hungry and felt cheated out of his lamb shank.

To sum up - Pizza great, lamb shank not worth the trouble.

We turned up at Tinderbox wanting a quick dinner before a move. With no booking we were lucky to get a table. We had the smoked pumpkin arancini for entree and they were delicious as were all our mains. As advised, the smoked salmon did need a side veg to make it a full meal. We ordered the charred broccoli and the cauliflower both of which were really good. We topped it off with the crumble which could have done with a few more minutes in the oven to completely warm it through. Service was good and very quick. We will return when we have a bit more time to enjoy the great food and funky vibe of the place. Highly recommended.

In James street, this restaurant is a little surprise. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the choices of wine and provided advice and tasting!! Certainly worth a visit as the food matched the wine

We had a pleasant evening, a group of 9 celebrating a birthday. We ordered pizzas for the table which were fabulous but the extra meal ordered for one member of our party was forgotten and came after we'd finished. A huge fuss was made removing glasses for still water to replace them with glasses for sparkling water , disturbing our flow of conversation and again we were interrupted whenever a glass was to be filled. The atmosphere was great, the food good but the service was poor, maybe a lack of experience and a language barrier . Good value for money. We could have spent more but we're not encouraged to do so .
