Disappointed with the meal. Slow cooked beef was cold, tough and dry, a teaspoon of caramel chilli sauce and 6 small chunks of beef. Pork ribs were tasty but needed to be cooked more so meat falls of the bone. They were hard to chew. Again small serve with mostly bones and not much Pork. The lotus chips were ok but needed seasoning and the aioli with wasabi needed more wasabi, tasted like Mayo. On the positive side staff were lovely and service was great. They said they were trialling a new menu, in my opinion still have some work to do. See less

We opted for a selection of entrees and each one was delish, especially the prawn dumplings, we were fighting over them! The service was amazing, we were completely looked after by lovely staff. Can't wait to go back and sample mote of the menu and some of the cocktails. See less

Came here for my birthday dinner Friday night and had high expectations after seeing so many positive reviews. You did not disappoint. The food and cocktails were amazing, service was excellent and the interior is just stunning. Will definitely be back soon! :) See less

The wait staff were lovely. For the price I would expect freshly steam dumplings, freshly chargrilled beef skewers etc etc these were cold and reheated. Dinner was not the quality I expect at this price point. Also pretty sure the margaritas had little to no tequila 😬 tasty but expensive for low alcohol… See less

FANTASTIC My wife and I have only just had the opportunity to check out one of our local restaurants having moved to Glenelg Sth in the last 6 months. Firstly, Polk is a really cool, clean, bright, vibrant and welcoming setting and we were greeted with a friendly, professional and genuinely warm welcome on arrival for our sitting at 530pm on Saturday 15th Jan. Our table was clean and comfortable. The menu, both food and constails/drinks, were filled with innovation and a sensible amount of options. Too often restaurants deprive you of options or make too many and every time the latter happens the quality drops. NOT HERE!!! The service was fantastic, very well run as a team. The food was fantastic, for starters we shared and opted for the Kingfish sashimi/Gyoza dumplings-These were fresh, well presented and tasted amazing. For mains, I opted for the Barra curry and my wife the pork belly-again these dishes were presented very well and the taste was simply beautiful with good depth of flavour and balance of spice. The cocktails were fantastic and well worth a try, we went through the Lychee/martini spritz, elderflower spritz and kiwi whisky sours (as a big whisky drinker these were phenomenal and innovative again!!) My wife and I live for culinary experiences and were very impressed with the standard of food and drinks, the professionalism, personability and overall experience. We would highly recommend Polk to anyone in the area and we will most certainly be back again, very soon. A huge thank you to Mel and her team and indeed the phenomenal flavours from their simply outstanding kitchen. See less

The food is great but both times I’ve been here I’ve been forgotten about. After 30 minutes had to go inside and get someone to take drink orders and bring water. Second time we were sitting there with our drinks for almost 20 minutes and again had to ask someone to take our food order. Vibe is good and service super friendly though hence why I’ve returned.

Absolutely outstanding food, highly rate everything we ate here but the soft shelled crab entre was my absolute favourite. The highlight though is the service of staff. It just absolutely eclipses nearly every other restaurant I've been to and there wasn't a single time someone working there didn't look like they were happy, friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Absolutely worth a visit!! See less

We decided to come to Polk for dinner after seeing how popular it was when we walked by a little while ago, and read some good reviews. I'd have to say that the overall experience was only okay. Some good and some not so good. . Drinks were pretty good with a reasonable selection, and they came out pretty quickly. The service was pretty good overall. However, the food was a bit more hit or miss for us, and took quite a while to come out. . Salt and pepper tempura soft shell crab: good crunchy texture, but the flavour was a bit bland unfortunately. . Sticky chicken wings: the sauce was good, but the chicken itself was a bit mediocre. I only wish the meat had more flavour, and that they were more caramelised. . Kangaroo carpaccio: this was a super creative dish with excellent flavours. Definitely the standout of the meal. . Red wine sticky pork ribs: this was a bit disappointing. The sauce tasted very similar to the sauce used for the chicken wings. The meat was quite a bit on the tough side. You really want that meat to be a lot more tender, and potentially even falling off the bone. Definitely expected more for a dish that cost more than 30$. . Broccolini: good side dish. But nothing special. . Dessert roti with banana and condensed milk: I quite enjoyed this dessert dish. It was pretty creative and tasty. See less

Love this place! Such a cute, pastel-themed restaurant with beautiful details on the ceiling. Good sized meals with great pricing; highly recommend the sticky ribs, drunken noodles and sweet potato chips! The desserts were heavenly. See less
