About Birdie's

Just the kind of place you’d want to hang out all day; Birdie’s favourite spot no matter the occasion. Lived in and filled with the many quirks of Birdie herself.
Enjoy the bustle of the market deli, shimmy into a leather booth and sip the afternoon away.
The food is flavoursome with a feeling of generosity about it — seasonal menus focused on small plates, big healthy salads, the rotisserie and comforting larger dishes. Open daily from 8am.

My chicken burger was bland. The chicken in it was not seasoned at all. Was very dry and was overcooked. It needed more dressing in it too. I did ask for some more mayonaise from a waitress after about 5 minutes of eating it and she returned when I had almost finished my meal and said had I got it and I said no but it's too late now. I was pretty dissapointed in my meal I feel it's something I could have made myself at home.

Hi Natalie, I'm sorry to hear that you felt that way about your experience at Birdie's. We do of course season our chicken, especially the crumbed chicken fillet schnitzel that you had in the burger. I will be following up with the team as to why the requested extra dressing took so long to come to the table so thank you for mentioning that. We always appreciate anyone taking the time to give their views on dishes and rest assured that all comments are passed onto our kitchen team too. Regards Hayden Young Venue Manager Birdie's All Day

Food was fab and our server (sorry so rude of me but i didn't catch his name, but he was tall, looked young, with a slight clean tidy facial hair, not quite a beard) was amazing! So friendly and attentive and the food was great! Absolutely loved the flavors in the squid dish and our desserts were insane!! We had the Creme Brulee and the Crumble.

Our group of ten only had main courses and dei is but they took a very long time to severely us food hut were very quick with the drinks - the food is nothing great the menu has one vegetarian main which was a salad. We had good friendly waiter but the food was pretty poor. Shame this has potential to be better with a better menu and better quality of the food

Hi Lizzie, I'm sorry to hear that you were less than happy with the food during your visit. I am a little confused though as from our menu we have 2 Vegetarian options (the Quinoa and Beetroot Salad & the Spiced Pumpkin Bao Buns) as well as a further 4 options that can be made vegetarian, also all of our sides are vegetarian. Regardless I see that the team altered one of the other dishes to suit the needs of your group. I was also concerned that you felt the food was very slow coming out, having reviewed the evening it was slightly longer than normal but not excessive given the amount of people in the venue on a Saturday Night. I'm sorry these factors lead to you having a less than enjoyable evening. Hayden Young Venue Manager Birdie's All Day

Had a variety of shared plates which were all tasty- southern fried chicken & the squid were especially good. Bit disappointed that the duck was off the menu as it was what drew us here. If you really like chicken it’s the place to go!

Hi Leigh and Dean, I'm wrapped that you had a good night here, the best way to enjoy our menu is by sharing dishes between you.

The earl grey gin fizz is always the perfect way to start a visit to Birdies. We enjoyed trying out the new menu very much. The chicken bao was tasty as was the fiery chicken salad. The kiddo was happy with happy more options on the children’s menu but still settled for a chicken roll with gravy. We will be back!

Birdie's is unfortunately a restaurant that seems to be focused on sales. When the waitress came to our table to ask if we wanted anything to drink we said no but just water. We were given the options of still or sparkling. We requested still assuming that it was regular tap as we weren't told that there was a tap option. When we paid our bill we found out that the water was $11!!! For a bottle of 1L of water?!!!!! We felt ripped off. We didn't know that we were paying for bottled water and weren't told that it was a priced item, no tap water. I'm just annoyed and disappointed.

Hi Brenda, I'm sorry you felt that way, we do offer all guests a choice of mineral or filtered water, I feel you would be hard pressed to find a venue that doesn't charge for bottled water, though I could be wrong. I will be following up with my team to make sure that their wording is clear. Regards Hayden Young Venue Manager Birdie's All Day
