My first visit to a Jimmy's franchise and it was okay. The prawns looked great, some complained about the texture but still ate the entire dish. He muast have been a moaner or very hungry. I was a tad disappointed with the steak but then again... It's a seafood joint. The waiters went to extra trouble for the birthday girl... More

Not all outlets of Jimmy's Killer Prawns are the same. This one must qualify as one of the best. Excellent food with very good service.

The food was great as well as the service. The centre was still under construction and a bit dusty around the centre but the restaurant itself was clean and neat and stylishly decorated.

The venue is good and the staff are friendly and efficient. The food is amazing and the fish is as fresh as being on the coast. I have been there a good many times and each time has been with a smile.

I love this branch. The food is always good. The atmosphere is cosy. The staff is friendly. Unfortunately no play area for kids (I have little ones - so, its always a qualifier) but the food is good enough to go again and again.

Went out with the family and the service was quick and friendly. The food was delicious and well prepared. The manager came around to ask if all well which it was and the waiter was there when needed for fresh drinks or take dirty plates away.

Management has a rather bad attitude. Purposely changed the live sports we were watching over to another channel just to spite us. Doesnt seem to care about "paying customers". Food is decent and staff are very friendly. Wouldn't recommend though.
