Fried Cauliflower

(chili, garlic, bean sprouts, coriander, peanuts, soy dressing)

A bit heavy on the soy dressing otherwise this was really delicious.

★★★★☆

Beetroot Gnocchi

(house-made gnocchi, pine nuts, citrus ricotta, kale, confit, tomatoes, almond garlic puree)

Wonderful flavours and textures, however the gnocchi was a little dense and chewy.

★★★★☆

Tempura Whiting

(apple, pine nut remoulade, lemon)

Crispy deep fried batter, fresh crunchy salad.

★★★☆☆

Overall:

We visited this popular place during lunch to take advantage of their $25 lunch special which included any lunch main with a glass of wine or beer. The service here was efficient, while the decor was modern and sleek. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Margaret River area.

Green Tea and Black Sesame Ice Cream

Overall:

There are 2 all-you-can-eat options: the Standard Buffet ($31.90) and the Gourmet Buffet ($35.50). For a few dollars more the Gourmet Buffet offered a greater selection of meats, soups and dessert, so we ended up opting for this. We initially wanted to try all the different meats however this turned out to be impossible as there was simply too much food! The meats that we did manage to try included the LA Beef Ribs, Beef Brisket, Marinated Beef, Diced Beef, Non Spicy Chicken, Pork Belly, and Spicy Pork. The only meat that did not take our fancy was the Diced Beef as it was super tough and extremely difficult to chew. The staff were friendly however unlike some other Korean BBQ places, they don’t help out with any of the barbequing (which was fine with us). In any case, the all-you-can-eat options here are perfect for all you carnivores out there.

Overall:

When Tina’s Noodle Kitchen first opened, what caught my attention was the retractable belt barrier positioned in front of the place to control the crowds. I’ve eaten here a few times since then and this is what I know:

  • This place only serves noodles but the noodles are consistently good and very filling.
  • The 150°C bowls mean that the noodles arrive burning hot and remain that way for a quite while, so take your time eating otherwise you will leave with a burnt tongue.
  • Orders need to be made at the counter before you sit down.
  • Service is variable.
  • If you look Asian or anything slightly Asian, expect to be spoken to in mandarin.

In any case, Tina’s Noodle Kitchen is a good place to head to the next time you are in the mood for a satisfying bowl of noodles.

IMG_0254Chicken Murtabak

Fried roti canai filled with minced chicken, eggs and onions, served with a curry sauce 

= Good

IMG_0248Mee Goreng

Tasted like bolognaise with bean sprouts added instead of Mee Goreng

= Not bad

IMG_0257

Chicken Hor Fun

Not enough noodles, the egg gravy lacked egg, this dish simply didn’t taste quite right

=Bad

IMG_0261

 Beef with Yellow rice

Wasn’t the biggest fan of the beef to rice ratio however the beef was tasty, tender and could be easily pulled apart

=Not bad

 

Overall:

A small family-owned eatery that is extremely casual (eg. the staff here served us our food with one hand and held a baby in the other). The service is great, the menu items are limited (note that they only serve satay on weekends) and the prices are cheap. It was a nice experience but I think I’ll stick to India Delights.
