With a new chef the club has had a real boost in diners at the restaurant! But their meal costs are over the fence for what you get! Two of our group had the barramundi for a whopping $34.00 with the fish about 100-150 grams sitting on a huge dump of mashed potato and broccoli broccoli wherevefr you looked! My friend and I chose the excellent chicken parmigiana with a threesome of broccoli (heaps of it!) some squash and zucchini and some pretty dry and tasteless potato chips.The combination of these three veges that do not appeal to everybody kind of spoilt the meals! If, like me, you hate broccoli then your serving shrinks considerably when you take it away .....:. the chef must own a broccoli farm I'm sure ...... But the place remains popular nonetheless though we won't be returning due the murderous prices for average food quality and very small servings with acres of that wretched broccoli!
This place has had a pretty ordinary reputation over the years but a new management team and a new chef seem to be making a difference. This is great as it is one of the very few dining venues around the place with a fabulous outlook over the golf course and Mt Petrie as the backdrop.Added to this bar prices and very reasonable as are the wines and you don't feel like you are in the queue at a mess hall like some other clubs.The fare is clubbish but well prepared, tasty and well presented. The staff are friendly although a bit more polish wouldn't go astray.They have some cracker deals for kids meals late in the week and a supervised plyroom on Friday and Saturday which our grand kids think is a big bonus.Overall, value for money and much improved but check as I don't think the restaurant is open Sunday and Monday nights

In proving how the standard bar for quality has gotten pretty high in recent years, even the most unassuming of places offers either a decent meal, or a nice cup of Joe these days. What a time to live in. On the Grind has a good sense to not only be there for defaulting as a coffee location, but giving itself incentive to actually be good. That in the end is better than thinking, "well, it's there and there isn't anything else" since more word of mouth will spread. And you're hearing it here first, it gets my approval. <br> <br> It was time for the usual weekend shop for groceries, and with that it usually comes with finding a new coffee place to go to. However, it was fairly late in the day - and a Sunday to boot if I can recall - so places were either closed or closing. Options are a bit limited then, and the two of us found ourselves adjacent to Samuel Village. With new places opening, including one which was a bakery that had coffee, that was why we were there. But like I said, things tend to close early on a Sunday around here. Lady luck was on our side, because of here. It did look like it was closed, but the barista on the machine was still willing to get some business, so all was good. <br> <br> All that needs to be known about here is it is a free-standing cart. A few tables are around it, and the cart is a few meters from the entrance to the supermarket. It is not a lot to look at, which is why I have probably not thought of it too much, but being the considerate soul that I am it deserved to get a go just as much as any local roaster. And after trying the coffee here, it can give some of those places a run for their money.<br> <br> If I had a dolor for every time that I said this, or implied it in some way, I could save up quite a bit. It still matters to highlight the case, though. The service can make a big difference and/or an impact upon somewhere. That goes both ways. Here, it is positive. For once, the lady manning the machine was all too happy about squeezing some more business out of the day during the closing minutes - it is some extra money regardless. And she was friendly as ever. Think about it this way. I could describe her as this movie archetype, that Southern, slightly middle-aged waitress at a diner, whom is all too happy to interact with clientele. She was all smiles, very pleasant, and had a laid-back charisma even in being a bit busy. That is how good the service was here. <br> <br> It's simple what they have. It is primarily coffee. They also have the usual chai, and hot chocolate, plus a few cold drinks here and there. Food is pretty basic at times. This time around, it was a couple of varieties of bliss ball - which were given at a reduction if gotten in conjunction with a hot drink. The coffee that they use comes from Establishment. With this blend, it takes a little getting used to even if you like it a bit strong. The flavour and aroma hits you right in the face like a sledgehammer with how strong it is, and this is not sweet or anything. Good baristas can be trusted with it, and every time I have had a coffee with it being used, that coffee has been unforgettable. That was the case with the coffee here, and the lady even said that she made it quite strong deliberately. Well ma'am, you must have read my mind or known me in a previous life - it hit the spot like a bulls-eye. <br> <br> On the side I also got a bliss ball. This was to give a more well-rounded review, and it was worth it in the end. This was flavoured peanut butter and chocolate, and I think I will stop there. That combination is always a win.<br> <br> I enjoyed my coffee, and my time here. It is a relaxing little oasis to catch up on having a cup of coffee, and they deliver on quality and the barista really made it worthwhile. For most places like this, it would often be the only choice for a while, and previously the associations I have had with supermarkets selling coffee has been ..... passable at best, if unremarkable. That perspective has pretty much changed with this alone, as anywhere can have good coffee now with the right talent and care. On the horizon, this will be one of several great places offering coffee. <br> <br> One last thing is explaining the 4.0 rating. Keep in mind that it is not in the most picturesque of places, or not the most striking looking area (and I never really care that much for it, though when considering the high ratings one thing I do consider is the perspective of an outsider hearing about it and trying to find it). With all new plans coming up, and possibly more competition, this will be one place of quite a number to serve a decent cup of coffee. <br> <br> TL;DR: From something so unassuming and small, comes a coffee that really surprised me how good it was. Nevermind that it is right in front of a suburban supermarket, I have been to specialty coffee shops that have fallen short of what I got here. Relaxed, making more out of what is has for location, and with one of the grooviest ladies I have had the pleasure to talk to for a while, On the Grind is one place that really deserves a go if you like your coffee.

Found a dirty sticky menu and ordered from a disinterested waitress who yelled our order across the dining area to the cook.Water in a kids plastic cup.Surrounded by cartons of drinks that nobody thought to put into storage - just left on the shop floor.Ripped and worn out seating (Not sure who wore it out as it didn't seem too popular when we were there).Getting the picture?The salmon looked disgusting and was overcooked. The chicken Katsu was similarly overcooked and awful.Waitress ignored us completely until payment time - LOL.Bored and annoyed, I counted the plates on the train. About 120, many doubled up - So that's 200 dishes going round and round, ignored by all. At mid afternoon I wondered about the freshness, perhaps they had a delivery on monday and couldn't fit it in the fridge?, perhaps it was 'stored' on the train? Why on earth would you have so many plates on the train in the middle of the afternoon? Whatever - All the hallmarks of a tired and disused station with trains to nowhere.AVOID!

Ah, Sitar! The many memories that I have of you throughout the many years, being a reliable source for Indian cuisine in Brisbane before it proliferated around town into practically every suburb. Well, here we are back again, and yes, you are just as good as you ever were. Since the start, it has always been about quality first and having the utmost amount of quality in both food and service. That philosophy has not changed since branching out, and it has an old school vibe to it. Heck, there is even one in Fiji - I have not tried it out. <br> <br> While it is never going to be among the best, nor really a must-do on where to eat in town - Indian or otherwise - there is value, there is quality, and it is practically a no-nonsense vibe when it comes to delivering the goods. Like it was already said, the best way to describe Sitar is that it is reliable, you do know what you are going to get, and by golly do you get something good. <br> <br> For a wrestling fan, it was a great weekend. There was two PPV events on back-to-back days, with the second one being one of the big four. Onto the WWE Network, it was time for the Royal Rumble to kick off the year. And with that, it was time to arrange some delivery for that. Whatever the case for choosing here was, it was selected. It is hard to fault Indian, wherever it comes from, as a choice for delivery. So, not having gone to this one beforehand it was naturally a front-running choice. <br> <br> Kicking in not even an hour after everything was arranged for dinner, the service was showing some good signs. One of the items I had ordered was "cocodelight", which would have been coconut cake doused in syrup. They were out of that, and offered to replace it with gulab jamun. I promptly accepted, and even then they were a bit surprised at how easy it was. Also with that, he gave the offer for a steamed rice as well, also accepted. That is nothing too major, but small touches really distinguish a place when it comes to service. To make it all the better and noteworthy, the driver rocked up five minutes before the arranged time. So there is definitely credit going towards punctuality and service. <br> <br> Sitar is essentially Indian. They tow the line while, and keep it with all the classics, have a manageable menu, and you can still find something to like on there. Starting off are the entrees, and they have the tandoori and non-tandoori all rounded up there, mostly going for the meat. Relatively speaking, the naan selection is also quite modest and has everything that could be expected. <br> <br> Getting to the main part of the meals, there is a tandoori section, as there is salad. Don't expect too many types of rice, just goes for the basics and biriyani. Then we are on to the curries. Then we are onto the big part of the menu, the curries. There is a couple of varieties of dahl, all the traditional curries (complete with choice of meat), seafood and vegetarian getting their own section each - the latter can be chosen as a side serving, plus the Sitar specials which are perhaps the best part of the whole menu. Completing it all are the several accompaniments, a few desserts, and some drinks. <br> <br> Just one more look at it while writing this, the smart crew behind Sitar definitely have known what they were doing all this time. No wonder my family met with old friends here so many times in the past. They really have gotten the knack, and this is certainly more of an outing for a group than solo. <br> <br> Getting to the delivery order, I deliberately got it over a certain amount so the garlic naan would factor into it, and attention could be deviated elsewhere. Adding onto that was a beef saag gost, a side order of palak paneer, some chicken tikka, a mint lassi, and gulab jamun. If my house mate were partaking, a lot more would have been gotten. <br> <br> All of this was pretty good. The chicken tikka was perfectly done, cut into little dices, and each bit of it was succulency tender and had absorbed the marsala mix that was rubbed into the flesh. In fact, it is perfect for mixing into the curry sauce for the main meals, and definitely makes them more robust as is. So, with that starter out of the way it is already quite good. <br> <br> Both of the curries were delicious. With the palak panner and saag gost, I got them medium and hot respectively. When it came to the spice levels, they were not immediately apparent. Instead of it being like a fire in my mouth, I more felt the temperature in my body rise a bit after the meal. In other words, the spices act as more of a slow burn and those are eventually more effective and allow the meal to be enjoyable. Even in being quite spicy, the saag gost was creamy and smooth on the palate plus the cuts of beef they chose were tender and the sizes were generous. The palak paneer was just as good as it usually is, with the combination of sweet tomato, the nuttiness of the cashews, and texture of the cream - the pieces of cheese and spinach were also a good match for each other. <br> <br> Then there is the usual additions of a lassi and naan. Lassi rarely ever changes, and is good for what it is. It is creamy, smooth, has a distinct undertone to it with the taste, and the variety here was mint - the flavour was really subtle, especially when put in comparison to mango. Then there was the naan which was also good. It tore apart easily, it had garlic dusted all around it, and was perfect for mopping up the sauce from all the curries. <br> <br> Well, not too much new to say about Sitar. It still is as good as it was, and provides a decent feed of curry. Knowing how good this lot was, it is possibly safe to say that the rest of the choices are just as good and that when getting a whole lot of people together, it possibly could become that much better. <br> <br> For a 4.0 rating, I won't lie. Indian is one of the cuisines that I become easily impressed with. Really, with only a few examples from memory it is hard to go wrong with Indian. It tends to be decent and passable, with some that are better than that, and a fair few which are even better and more tasty. Sitar happens to be a bit better than your average curry place. <br> <br> TL;DR: Unlike a lot of eateries (i.e. Indian curry houses) that branch out to having many of them, this one still has the feeling that it is given the homely touches and attention to detail like it was still the first and only one. There is nothing fancy about the curries here, nothing that is a frill, all of it is the usual helpings expected from most Indian places, and it all really works out in the end. <br> <br> Many aspects of why Sitar has worked out so well so many times cannot really be delved with this experience, since part and parcel of why it is beloved comes from the service inside the restaurant. That being said, the swift delivery equaled trying the delicious curry even sooner, and to a hungry man that is good enough.

Dropped in last Saturday morning for a quick coffee, it wasn't not busy due to early 7:00am. There was a young lady running the show and I ordered a flat white then took a seat outside. My gaze browsing around inside deco before I stepped out and appreciated the retro-taste set-up but what I liked the most was the iron little dog at the door for welcoming customers. Although the coffee tasted slightly burnt, I appreciated the friendly service from the young lady. Would definitely re-visit in the future....
