Holy moley, this place serves the BEST food I have ever eaten in the Blue Mountains. Run by a lovely family. This place is awesome. Make sure to try the Tom Yum Fried Rice and the Seafood Curry... Katoomba's Best Kept Secret... See less

Walked in had no trouble getting a table. We asked for table water and our cups weren’t washed properly which is concerning considering covid. It took around 30 mins to order our meals, I had to get up to get one of the staff members attention as they didn’t care to come to us to take our order. Meanwhile others that had entered after us, got service straight away and their meals came quickly. We ordered food and drinks, our food came first which was cold and had to ask where our drinks were. We understand it was busy but to have such little care about your customers is poor and to be served dirty dishes and cold food is disgusting. When paying we were ignored and eventually were acknowledged with nothing more than a smile. Unfortunate experience. Will not be dining again. See less

Went here the other night for dinner. The food was exceptional, service was great and staff were friendly. We didn't have to wait too long for meals either, even though it was pretty much fully booked. We loved everything that was ordered and the kids especially loved their milkshakes. Would definitely recommend coming here, it's hidden gem. See less

I can now understand why the phone was constantly ringing for orders & reservations. All dishes we had were very flavoursome, well balanced & delicious - 10/10. Staff were very attentive, polite and in sync. Can definitely recommend this restaurant. See less

Delicious food and a buzzing atmosphere. We went on a Saturday night and it was very busy. Staff are efficient and service is quick. We ordered the chicken skewers, king prawn spring rolls, massaman curry, eggplant duck curry and sambal chicken. The dishes were all delicious. The eggplant and sambal chicken had lovely char flavour. The massaman curry had really generous portions of beef, but the curry itself was a bit watery. Overall, a really nice dinner place in Katoomba! See less

A Wonderful Dining experience tucked away off the hustle and Bustle of Main Street Katoomba. A cosy Cafe and Restraunt with tidy and clean decor, with a exciting and varied menu that you couldn't get bored of. I purchased the satay Skewers, and Lamb Massaman curry, and boy did it not disappoint my appetite! The Chicken Skewers were perfectly cooked with a peanut sauce with texture you'd expect from a home made sauce with a small side of leafy greens to contrast the sweetness of the satay. The Lamb Massaman Curry was the real star of the show, the flavour of the curry against the perfectly cooked lamb is a match made in heaven, the curry was perfectly made and wasn't saturated with the oils from the Lamb , showing the care the chef put In the meal, paired with perfectly steamed rice is a meal that will be bringing me back for sure. For anyone with a sense of adventure this is the place to go! See less

We were in Blue mountains for the weekend and had dinner two of the three nights. Absolutely amazing food and hot/cold teas. Also open till late and one of the few places with several vegetarian and vegan options (they also very accommodating of dietary requirements). Highly recommended if you are looking for a light dinner. Great service too! See less

A cosy little restaurant in the heart of K-town offering a menu loaded with dishes from a handful of Asian countries. The service was quite friendly and the food came out in a timely manner, even on a relatively busy evening. See less

Excellent food and fast service. Centrally located. Reasturant staff was very polite. And the good part is that reasutrant is open through out the day. We were worried that we lost track of time while siteseeing and will not get lunch at 3 pm. But this reasturant was open and was serving full menu items. Only down side is no restroom. You will have to use public restrooms which are across the road from the arcade. See less

I was not happy with tonight’s service (Saturday night) it was extremely busy!! When we entered, they didn’t take us to our table and told us to just sit outside! And they did not come out to take our order, I had to walk in to ask them to take our order! 🙄 I ordered the Buddha bowl, it was a little salty! The flavouring was in between Chinese & Thai cuisine, as this restaurant is based on fusion cuisines, so it included Thai, Chinese, Korean & Japanese! Tasted nice but it was a little too salty for me, so I had to absorb it with steamed rice to balance out the flavours. My brother-in-law’s food order didn’t arrive!! He ordered fried fish, and he asked one of the staffs to check on his order, but they never came back with a response, so I took charge and I went to ask again, with my firm voice. Then they finally arrived!! He liked it, but he did not appreciate the kind of service he received. When it was time to pay, it took forever to even pay for our order! I noticed that Uber eats and people that ordered takeaway from the restaurant were the main priority, disregarding the customers eating in the restaurant. They took awhile to attend to us in the start, but once they took our order, they did provide us the high chair for my nephew who is a toddler, which I appreciated. The papaya salad tasted delicious, the Buddha bowl (a little salty) the coconut was small with barely anything inside & it was $7.00! What the? We wanted to order the desserts, but the service took too long, so we decided to go home without dessert. We paid $112.77 in total (pictures below) See less

Basil Nut Cafe offers exquisite meals and impeccable service. The gyoza were a knock out. The spring rolls were unique. The Pad Thai with prawns was to die for, flavoursome and generously sized. The staff were wonderful. Friendly without overstepping, and incredibly kind - the young male waiter helped an older woman out of her chair, walked her out slowly, chatted with her with patience and good humour, called her a taxi and stayed with her until it arrived. I've never seen that level of care in customer service. What a wonderful place. Very family friendly. Incredibly busy, with bookings hard to get, so be organised and call well in advance. See less

Don’t tell anyone about this place or you will never get a seat. The food is just amazing both in taste and presentation. Once again we found a place slightly off the beaten track that has just nailed the perfect combination of flavour with generous serving size an awesome menu choice, great service and fair prices. We will be back for sure just to try some of the other dishes. This is a must do if you are anywhere near Katoomba. Sit down and take out. BYO wine 👍 See less
