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.

I went by myself and the service was great. The food was great and the walls had interesting things to look at. It was quiet but it was good as I like it because it was my first time going there. The workers were excellent...and chatted with me.More

To be fair, two out of our four meals were fine - standard steak and fish with chips. The other two were the worst things we've ever been served - some fish thing that turned out to be like cold fish nuggets, and a burger...that was very deep fried, including the bun! My husband couldn't eat it, and he is not usually one to waste a burger! On the plus side, it was so bad we were absolutely hysterical with laughter, although I'm sure we confused the poor waitress, who spoke very little English. All in all, just a bizarre experience.More

Food was pretty good for pub grub. I had a spicy calamari salad for entree and that was big enough to be a main. Flavour was really good. Two of us had the steak. That was cooked well but they did pre-slice it which I...thought was odd. Usual fries but no veggies. For the price it was ok. And they take BartercardMore

Went here for an early Saturday night meal with my two boys and my husband. The food portions are miniscule, the burgers my boys chose were inedible. Bun was stale, the so called lamb was tough gristle and there was nothing else bar mustard and...lettuce in the burger. It came with 4 chips. 4. Our so called 'big plates' steak meal, was tough piece of meat, one tablespoon of some sort of sauce and three tiny slivers of kumera. My 10 year old son burst into tears the burger was so bad. We ended up going to Denny's on the way home to get something to eat as we were all still starving. The restaurant was cold and they didn't turn any heating on until we went and turned it on ourselves. If I didn't have a voucher we would have walked out when they put the plates in front of us. Massively disappointed.More

Located in main street, middle of Henderson, easy parking right outside. Essentially a steakhouse, great for family, mixed ages and large parties, not so much for intimate dinners for the sophisticated. Clever decor and a standard steakhouse menu. The small plates look interesting although we...chose the four large ones; chicken salsa verde, fish of the day, sirloin and "surf 'n turf. All came quickly and were surprisingly well presented. Not gourmet standard, steaks and chicken a little dry, but all edible and fair value. This place should give Tonys steakhouse a run for its money; hope they can survive in this rather competitive market.More

Went here for Farther's day lunch. Not many people there but what a find the food was great and the staff were very friendly. The decor is very different almost kinky in its own way. Well worth a return visit. They are part of First...Table where you get a 50% discount of all food for up to 4 people.More

It was my first time going there and it was easy to find. I had late lunch and it wasn't too busy. The workers there were very friendly and explained to me what some of the dishes they had and leave me for time to...choose what I want. I got a dinosaur burger and it was very delicious especially the Stegosaurus one. I would go again to try the other things on their menu.More

We came across this little gem in search for something to eat quite late on arrival to Henderson. The food was great value for money and large serves including the kids meal. We were very happy with the meals and the friendly welcoming service.

It was quite difficult to find somewhere open around here on a Sunday evening so we were happy to stumble into this restaurant. The zoo theme went down great with the kids and the chef was kind enough to cater for a kids portion of...an adult main. The food was great (both for the kids and adults). We would definitely return if in the neighbourhood and would not hesitate recommend it to friends! Good place for a easy family meal with kids.More

Dropped in for lunch on a very quiet holiday Monday. At the outset we were the only ones there. Warmly greeted and seated. Burger's were well received, 2 "special" sirloin steaks (250g $12 with glass of wine or beer) whilst tasty and of value, both...were one level over cooked and a bit on the chewy side - if had paid full price would have questioned value (needed resting?) Grand-daughter's chicken pasta was also of good value and enjoyed though she had to wait 5 minutes after other mains had been served. Fortunately the colouring pencils were of sufficient distraction.More

Food was delicious! My sister loved her Steak, mum couldn't stop raving on about her Lamb Shanks, my Thai Beef Salad at first glance didn't look very 'thai' to me however, it tasted amazing. My daughter enjoyed her milkshake & Fish & Chips. I love...the decor & the atmosphere is nice. The service was abit slow as there was only one waitress on however, she was a lovely young girl. Maybe they could employ another waitress & then service would be a lot smoother.More

We held our Diving dinner here after the competition had finished. Good location, easy parking, good atmosphere - staff very friendly. We had s group of 40 and pretty much booked out the whole place. Burgers were good - steaks were good - chicken was...excellent. Fast service and very reasonably priced. Some of our group has been here before in previous years and just keep coming back Well recommended for groups. Would definitely eat here again.More
