Everything. Just get everything. Lamb lollies, kangaroo burgers, octopus tacos, burrata, caramel, yadayadayada, and come during happy hour! Service is warm/attentive, food is fresh and mostly non-GMO!
Grilled veggies are small but great. Aussie burger is tasty & juicy. Fish & chips have tender fish & wonderful sauces to go with it. The star would be the triple T tiramisu. Get it, so good!
I went for their entree, the Lamb Lollies. It was extremely flavorful and cooked well! The side salad and sweet potatoes was a great addition. Also, this restaurant is gluten-free friendly!
We took a bite, then before I knew it we almost finished both our appetizers. Highly recommend the fish and chips with basil yogurt dip and strawberry, spinach and goat cheese salad!
Gluten free calamari is perfect every time. Kangaroo burger with the lot is phenomenal. Australian beer is delicious! Staff is incredibly courteous and attentive. Lady and I will certainly come back.
Great experience - wait staff are super attentive and accommodating, and the chef personally came out to ask how things were. Food was great and big portions - beware how big the calamari app is
The G'Day burger is something else. Especially when that something else is kangaroo meat! Yes, explore the tasty exotic goodness not even Poo Bear can even protect and always get the Fontina on top!
Everybody raves about the kangaroo meat but I had a seafood special that was out of this world. Portions are large but save room for dessert! The tiramisu is one of a kind.
Had a great dinner @TheThirstyKoala - Delicious and affordable 12oz grass-fed steak - Really friendly staff/owners - Super close to Astoria-Ditmars train stop. Getting the Kangaroo special next time!
Service was Good. But the Kitchen is slow, took over 30mins for our food (Filet Mignon & Fish-&-Chips) to come out. Being there were only 2 other Tables (4 Diners max) in the restaurant.
Great customer service! We had three waiters/waitresses, the chef, and the owner stop by the table. Definitely recommend the lamb lollies, roo burgers, and kakadu crostini.
The best service with a friendly and down to earth staff. Had the scallops and beef burger with the lot--both amazing. Gonna try the triple t dessert next time!
Delicious food and great variety of not-your-average fare. Friendly service, but very very slow. Been twice and enjoyed, but waited near an hour for food both times.
If you get anything with kangaroo be sure to smother it in their goat cheese. The combination is to die for. And the Mexicans cola is the best cola I've ever had.
Quite disappointed. Warm beer, with half full glasses. Waited so long for our entrees that our waiter asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu (before our entrees arrived). Won't be coming back.
Decided to give this place a second chance... Unfortunately, the batter on my fish was GUMMY, and I was all around disappointed again. If you do end up here, you're pretty safe with the crostis plate.
They make these Australian coconut caramel bites. I don't know what they are called but they are insane. This is what I would use to conquer a nation....
The steak tacos are delicious. The 50s music playing in the background is also quote enjoyable! Great first experience at the Thirsty Koala!
Recommend the Kangaroo Loin. And for those who are GF they can make the Fish and Chips GF. They were excellent with the Thai Basil Yogurt Dip.
If it is your first time and unsure what to order, stay with appetizers. I recommend the scallops wrapped with bacon, and the lamb mini chops.
Brunch comes with a mimosa! And reasonably priced. Also try the kangaroo with their goat cheese (made in house), so tender and better for you!
I came for lunch, ordered a steak on ciabatta bread, and fries, the food is less than average, fries are are so soggy and burned! This is my first and last!
Get the lamb lollies. They come with some unearthly roasted caramel used squash. Also, the Triple T (Tim tam tiramisu) for dessert is outrageous.
LOVE their food and their staff. The lady who owns it is fabulous and always has the perfect advise what to order if in doubt.
Fantastic customer service and the boomerang tacos are all incredible. I've never been disappointed with this new neighborhood star!
this place is not consistent. Some people got extra bacon. My dish was much smaller compared to others without the extra bacon. Wth. Also not worth the wait
The food is so worth the wait! The olive spread is so delicious. All their food is made to order so everything is fresh!
Eat it all!! It's all good & fresh! Then have the Triple T for dessert (tiramisu) :D
The salmon is the best I've had in Astoria, such amazing flavor. They don't skimp you on the portion either.
The dish I like best so far is Earth Chili!! It's vegan and I'm not but I could eat it every day!!
The scallops wrapped in pancetta are what love tastes like. I could eat these until my heart explodes.
The kangaroo ROCKS! Loved it. Had it medium rare in a burger with goat cheese, fried eggs and beets.
Fish & chips is tasty. The fish is flakey & buttery. The signature burger is very filling, but also very delicious.
BYOB!!!! Lamb lollies... Amazing!! Medium Roo sliders.. Yes, roo.. KangaROO sliders... pretty good!!! Thumbs up for The Thirsty Koala!
Service was superb! Share the Calamari. Kangaroo Burger has a lot going on. Everyone enjoyed the Lamb Lollies.
Very helpful and knowledgable wait staff. Make sure to try one of their cocktails.
Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese and Strawberry add the Skirt Steak you will thank me :)
The staff here is extremely kind and helpful. Ask them for good dinner suggestions!
Spinach, strawberry, and goat cheese salad. Do it. Their soups are incredible too.
The things that you've never tried will be better than things you typically eat. Step out of your comfort zone, try the kangaroo.
Spinach barries cheese and grilled shrimp ;) , you will love it.
The seafood it's remarkable there.. the tacos are also really good...
Kangaroo Burger is great, comes with a sweet chili sauce which is good.
Get the kangaroo burger with the lot. You won't be sorry.
Lamb lollies and roasted pumpkin - every friend who hates lamb ate them!
Excellent service. The Bacon wrapped scallops and crab cakes are amazing
Order a flat white coffee if you need a pick me up, you won't regret it.
Try the amazing lamb lollies & kangaroo burger + the Triple T.
The crab cake is by & far the best I have ever eaten.
You know now to get the kangaroo, but I implore you to throw the homemade goat cheese on top of it.
Whoa!! Triple T - dessert!! A MOST!!! I died and went to heaven!!
When you come here make sure to get the kangaroo it's amazing
The Kangaroo fillet with vegetables is just delicious!
Great food! Aussie Burger with the lot if you need a hangover cure.
