A good place for a snack like dumplings or asian soups. Recommended by the helicopter staff for coffee and he wasnt wrong.

Absolutely delicious food! We all ordered something different and shared because we couldn’t decide. Desserts were amazing too.

We heard good things about Snake Bite so after our heli hike we stopped here for lunch. Delicious and fresh food - best dumplings I have had in a long time, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Range of options if asian cuisine is not your thing.

Visited here during the school holidays on a cold rainy day. Plenty of cabinet items or a la carte menu. Not a huge number of gluten free options but what was available was pointed out which was helpful. Service wasn’t overly friendly, but it did...seem to be a fairly busy lunchtime.More

It’s hard to choose what to have on this menu, so much of it sounded delicious. They also have lots of great looking food in the cabinet. There’s a strong Asian influence and we loved the fried fish gua bao buns, the duck noodle soup...and the dumplings. Not to mention the roti! We have food allergies in the family and the staff were really helpful with this. Would definitely recommend.More

Had a great meal at Snake Bite - tried 5 of the small plates (bao buns, tempura squid, hawker roll and dim sum). All delicious, with tasty sauces and salad/pickles in the bao buns and hawker roll. The squid was great - but it wasn’t...tempura. Didn’t stop us enjoying it though 😋. Good range on the drinks menu (didn’t try the cocktail specialty but it looked fun!). Would definitely go back.More

These guys were pumping food at all times. Food was delicious and I would eat here everytime. We had a delicious thai chicken curry & my husband ate beef cheek in thai sauce. Portion sizes were enough & enjoyable.
