The King Prawns were good, but needed to be deveined. The half lobster in the garlic butter sauce was good as was the Red Snapper fillet. I found the food while good was overpriced and the utensils to eat were really pathetic. There was no way to eat the food with their utensils.

Well present, wide range of seafood on display, BUT very disappointing in content and delivery. The Lobster Thermidor consisted of two, one centimetre squares of lobster smothered in cheese sauce. Complaints fell on deaf ears. The Calamari was greasy. The Oysters Kilpatrick was another display trick - large shell, plenty of bacon, BUT very small oysters! The King Prawn Skewer was not de-veined. For $115.00 this was very disappointing and excessive.

Looking at the food in the windows is mesmerising, the range is huge and LOOKS delicious, however that's were it ended. The ordering is loud and confusing, we ordered the seafood platter for 2, $98 cash only - lucky it had its own ATM.! The Meal came on a small platter, with a pile of old, cold chips to make it look like there was a lot. You get crappy plastic forks that could not pull out the dry lobster from its shell, we had to ask for napkins as we had to eat most with our hands. Really disappointed, we thought because it was so busy, it must be great food but it is clearly targeted to the tourists, both quality and price wise. Probably won't eat there again, I suggest skip it and go somewhere else.

The food quality is so poor, taste is bad for cooked food and and my kids ended up with diarrhoea after the eating.

Waiter keep asking and forcing you to buy more.

Overall experience is the worst I have in Sydney.
