This is my local so I am grateful to have a beautiful cafe, bar, restaurant close by to our rural area. For this reason we will always go there now and again. It’s convenient (close to home and good access to the motorway) and the decor and environment is nice.
However the food isn’t what it used to be. I had the lamb sumac dish the other day which used to be my fav. On this most recent occasion - the lamb was so over cooked, dry, stringy and tasteless. I honestly think it had been boiled rather than slow roasted to fall off the bone. Speaking of bone, there was also bits of bone&joint in amongst the meat. It had obviously been shredded and plated haphazardly.
My daughters chicken tenders and chips were delicious though and have always been good. Coffee is good.
Most of the staff have changed. I Don’t recognise many faces anymore. It doesn’t feel as personable.
Keep going Urban Soul - you have a captive clientele in Karaka and the wider area. Keep them wanting to return.
Your cabinet food is always well presented but it would be nice to see some variation or changes of offerings sometimes.
