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!
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 dish I like best so far is Earth Chili!! It's vegan and I'm not but I could eat it every day!!
Get the lamb lollies. They come with some unearthly roasted caramel used squash. Also, the Triple T (Tim tam tiramisu) for dessert is outrageous.
Great food! Aussie Burger with the lot if you need a hangover cure.
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.
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.
Fantastic customer service and the boomerang tacos are all incredible. I've never been disappointed with this new neighborhood star!
Kakadu Crostini is AMAZING.
The things that you've never tried will be better than things you typically eat. Step out of your comfort zone, try the kangaroo.
Lamb lollies and roasted pumpkin - every friend who hates lamb ate them!
Looks like a nice place to go
Spinach barries cheese and grilled shrimp ;) , you will love it.
The food is so worth the wait! The olive spread is so delicious. All their food is made to order so everything is fresh!
Salmon is awesome
The salmon is the best I've had in Astoria, such amazing flavor. They don't skimp you on the portion either.
Kangaroo Burger is great, comes with a sweet chili sauce which is good.
The steak tacos are delicious. The 50s music playing in the background is also quote enjoyable! Great first experience at the Thirsty Koala!
Try the amazing lamb lollies & kangaroo burger + the Triple T.
OMG I'm in love with this restaurant! Everything is delicious.
The pictures are better then the taste.
Try the meatballs!!!
Excellent service. The Bacon wrapped scallops and crab cakes are amazing
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.
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!
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.
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.
Get the kangaroo burger with the lot. You won't be sorry.
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!
Great service and excellent food
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.
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.
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.
The Kangaroo fillet with vegetables is just delicious!
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!
Get this, Mexicane Cola
Fish & chips is tasty. The fish is flakey & buttery. The signature burger is very filling, but also very delicious.
When you come here make sure to get the kangaroo it's amazing
The kangaroo ROCKS! Loved it. Had it medium rare in a burger with goat cheese, fried eggs and beets.
The kangaroo burgers are delicious!!
Get the pavlova!! It's really good!!
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!
Eat it all!! It's all good & fresh! Then have the Triple T for dessert (tiramisu) :D
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.
