I love coming to Mike's Kitchen, never written a review about it though. Food...always a 10 out of 10, service with a smile. Best ribs in the country if you ask me, put your self against a full rack and you won't have to eat for a week, Give this place a go, you won't regret it.

I allways have a great Fillet Steak and as usual it was great again. My partner usulally has ribs but this time had the lamb shanks and thought they were about the best she had ever had.

Nice location, parking not too bad. Staff very friendly. The people at our table who had ribs were very happy. I had a medium rare eye filler, more rare than medium, the chips needed to be cooked longer as they were very under average and the child portion of chicken was not real chicken breast but reconstituted chicken, undercooked and...

Love this restaurant, the food is amazing. The ribs are the best on the coast and fall off the bone. the Cheddar melt steak is fantastic. They have a Don Pedro which you have to try if you have never had one, it is a perfect after dinner drink. There are a few South African flavours at this restaurant which... More

Decided to come to Mike's Kitchen after seeing the wonderful review online, and they do not lie! We arrived at 6pm on a Tuesday night, and it was fairly quiet at this point. However we had booked a table in advance because we had previously attempted to eat here, but found the place to be completely full and packed full... More

Mike's Kitchen beside the busy M1 on the Gold Coast must surely have some of the biggest meals around! Set in an intersting Tudor style establishment, eating here is quite an enlightening experience. Our girls'group lunched here recently and the restsurant had quite a busyness about it. Efficient , pleasant staff , ' whizzed ' around to attending to diner's... More

We just keep going back to Mikes. The food is consistently great and so is the friendly service. My family love the ribs. We recently took friends from overseas and they agreed it has the best ribs.

I've been here twice with work, and I can honestly say the ribs are on par to be the best ribs I think I have ever eaten in my entire life, and I've had some pretty good ribs. So succulent and tasty, they just fall right off the bone and are complimented by a delicious serving of chips. The peri... More

One of my top steak restaurants along with my work colleagues! If we are planning an evening out, this is usually top of the list! The steaks are always my first pick but some of the others say the ribs are to die for! The service is great, prices are reasonable especially given the quality & the menu options have... More
