Saw the restaurant at the end of the street and walked up for lunch, however upon entering we appeared to have upset the manager simply by entering. At this point we were grunted in the direction we should be sitting, and the service didn't pick up from there after we asked if we could sit on the balcony. Food was... More

My husband and I are in Kiama for the weekend and we decided to have dinner at Nirand Thai. It was beautiful food and the service was exceptional. We have traveled to Thailand many times and eaten Thai street food and wr found this restaurant to be very close to original. The food was so good that we went back... More

Was here on 11 March and had a great time listening to music. The food was nice and lots of choices for vegetarians.

Walked in to an empty restaurant and to no greeting - that alone should have been the warning and indication of a terrible establishment! Menus where slapped on the table and the waiter walked off, another waiter smoking on the balcony! Dirty flooring, putrid table cloths and a non existent atmosphere! Got up and walked out after 10 mins of... More

My husband and I stopped in for some lunch. There was a stone faced man sitting outside who clearly did not want to greet us. We asked if it was open as he was so unenthusiastic. We were pointed to the outdoor table where we sat. Soon enough another unimpressed looking gentleman walked out to take our order. He said... More

Came here a few months ago, experience was so bad I thought it best to write a review. We didn't eat here... it didn't get that far. Popped in for a quick lunch, the staff looked at us weird, so much so that we asked if they were even open (we were the only customers in a place that seats... More

Arrived for lunch on Monday and was met at the door by a sour faced man who has no people skills at all. The only good thing about the service is that our food arrived quickly and was ok, nothing special. I suggest this restaurant hire some waiters who know how to serve!

Visited last night. It was a warm night and we had a table on the verandah with a birds eye view of the town. Service was fast and efficient, food was plentiful and delicious and price was good value, we had two glasses of wine, and entree and two mains for a total of $60.

They opened some years ago above the Blue Diamond on the harbour. Were really good initially but went downhill in my opinion. For some bizarre reason the service staff can be rude! Gave my wife attitude about paying with a credit card so we refuse to give them another chance. They have a franchise at Shellharbour food court as well.... More
