  1. Mao Bar

    * * * * 1/2

    Went here for breakfast on Saturday for the first time. Must say both my daughter and I who drink loads of coffee everyday found the coffee exceptional. We both had large lattes, - one single shot and one double - both were exceptionally creamy without being too frothy, both lovely flavour and right strength. 10/10 for the coffee - best we've both had in ages. Welldone. We had french toast with berries, bacon and banana - great superb breakfast, cooked perfectly, good size and delicious. Also had mushrooms on toast with bacon. Perfect again. Loads of flavour etc etc. Awesome breakfast, great service, nice atosphere. Overall rating 9/10. Should be 10 but have to leave room for rating again when I come back a second time!

  2. Mao Bar

    * *

    Hard to give an overall rating because the food was great (4.5 or 5/5) but the service was absolutely APPALLING (1/5)! The wait staff didn't know the menu very well; consistently forgot our orders and needed to come back and ask again (use a notepad if your memory is not that great) or didn't place them with the kitchen staff at all (so some items we ordered never made it to the table); didn't check if we needed any more drinks; and seem to have forgotten we existed at all. I needed to go up to the bar on various occasions to get cutlery that wasn't provided or order drinks, deserts etc. It took three hours to get starters, mains and a few desert items and drinks. So was the $240 tab (for four) worth it? If you don't mind bad service - yes or if you work the cost out per person per hour then you are essentially paying $20/person/hr - so if you look at it that way its not to bad. Will I go back? With good company to help pass the time, yes. Despite it all, complements to the chef.

    Great menu with great young lovely staff. Atmosphere is fantastic and so is the music. I really enjoy going on Wednesday night when they have cha cha night !!
