    Even though joshua left the burgers are still pretty solid. Good ingredients, cooked well. Chips good & shake as well. Service good as well.

    Milk Bar style shakes and burgers with a touch of donuts. Yes please! American Cheese Classic Burger was tasty. Beef pattie was pink on the inside and charred for the crunch. Fries and onion rings yum

    Good food, but the space is too small and the staff are hopeless.

    The soy & ginger sauce overpowers the crab omelette, best to order without. Bounty milkshake pretty good. Service great as well.

    PBJ and Miso Caramel milkshakes are delicious and generously portioned. Chicken wings with vinegar and shallot sauce were too sweet, could have been more savoury. Crab omelette was a joy as always.

    Can't say I'm a fan - I feel like this place is in desperate need of a really good scrub. I've never really enjoyed the food, but I've had a couple tasty and interesting milk shakes here before.

    Another vote for the crab omelette. Was the right balance of crunchy, salty and sweet. A definite must.

    Incredible food but I wish I don't have to smell like the food when I walk out. Would be great if they abandon the open kitchen concept.

    Old school milk bar with new school values. Indulge in burgers, shakes & fries with that clever Japanese twist we expect from Cafe Ish (e.g. caramel-miso milkshake). Then have a nap.

    All u can eat ribs on Wednesdays for $35. Pork better than beef which was dry but ironically really fatty. Good but not great, would have preferred to just go Hurricanes.
