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.

The food was good though the duck seemed a bit tough. Great service.

The dishes looked promising. We had the deep fried courgette and chips for starters. They were good. Especially loved the labneh with the tamarind. For mains we got the five spice duck, the seared salmon and the harissa lamb. The five spice sauce was too sweet, and the duck served was breast and wing. I wish the wing part wasn't served as it was so hard to get the meat off the bones. The salmon was delicious but the sauce was too tasty. It eas overpowering in the end. But the lamb was good. We also felt rushed as the waitress kept coming to us asking if there is anything she can clear, even though the plates weren't finished. At some stage she actually asked if we were done with the chips or if we wanted her to clear them! This was at 8pm so nowhere near closing. Sorry to say but we weren't impressed. We chose it as it looked impressive on paper, but I think the service needs improving and the dishes need fine tuning.

Hi Nerissa, Thank you for the time taken to leave a review, we really appreciate all feedback that is given. I'm glad to hear you liked most of the dishes you had, even if the duck was not to your liking. It's important that our staff recognise those guests who like yourself prefer to be left alone a bit more during a meal, so thank you for that feedback. Hopefully we will see you back for the Fried Courgettes (the tamarind sauce is one of my favourites too). Kind Regards Hayden Young Venue Manager Birdie's All Day

Awesome and attentive service and very nice fit out! The food portions were generous and the food was tasty. Perfect for a meal before a movie but if I was just going out for dinner and solely focussed on delicious food this probably wouldn’t be my first choice. I think Birdie’s is one of the better restaurants at Sylvia Park though.

We where disappointed because we couldn't choose a breakfast for lunch but our lunch was delicious. The mains are a little bit pricey tho, we expected to have the side included for that price so we choose "on the bred"s and salads.

Hi Adeline, Sorry to hear you were disappointed by the Breakfast menu not being available, we are only open for Breakfast in the weekend so unfortunately we do not have all of the ingredients available the rest of the week, that's the down side to keeping our ingredients as fresh as possible. Its great to hear that you still enjoyed the food though, hopefully we will see you back in the weekends to try our breakfast menu. Cheers Hayden Young Venue Manager

food is tasty and filling, service was not the best but it is Christmas and quite busy. We basically had to get staff's attention in order to get drink orders placed, but ti was busy so it didn't bother our group.

food was Good was the service was Really slow. we had to wait over 45 mins for our mains and it wasn't ideal as it was a business lunch with our clients and we all had to go back to work after that.. the waiter didn't really come to take orders quickly or clear the table after the mains or ask for dessert orders so was quite disappointed with the overall service considering the restaurant wasn't even busy on a Monday afternoon

Hi Dielle, My apologies that you experienced such delays during your visit, I have been back through the day and will be doing some follow up training with the team member that was looking after you on the day. Those kinds of delays are unacceptable. I do hope you will come back to see us again as we are always striving to better ourselves and can only do that with great constructive feedback like yours.

The food was great, good selection and everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was very slow, we waiting nearly an hour for our main to arrive. There were lots of staff standing around, not really doing anything.

Hi Amy, Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback, its great to hear that your group all enjoyed the food. We do take all feedback very seriously and with your comments about service I have been back through and checked the day and sadly saying you waited nearly an hour for your food is a very big exaggeration. From the time your group placed your orders (bearing in mind that the first time the team member came to take your order your group hadn't looked at the menus yet), until you had your mains on the table was 36 minutes, given that you had shared entrees during that time as well that is a reasonable time frame for a seated meal at a restaurant.
