The food wasn’t spectacular, and considering the hefty price tag for the dishes, the serving size just didn’t add up. It’s a shame that after the meal, I kept thinking, “I can get the same food for a fraction of the price tag”.
5 meat dishes to share between 4 people for $154 and out comes these small plates… for $154?! GAHHH, give me Habibs in Bankstown anytime.
