good food and nice vibe, however my table was not ready despite booking a table a long time ago. I was expecting something a bit more welcoming/ at least a table set aside for me but instead the hosts were busy trying to figure out where to seat me or so “squeeze” me in

Really enjoyed our first time at Black Rice and will be going back. The tables for two are too small for sharing plates.

It’s so refreshing to find a restaurant that’s sells a wide choice of tasty vegan food.

We’ve dined at Black Rice several times before and have always enjoyed it, up until this occasion. The food was great, however the evening was very disappointing for several reasons: 1. Service was terrible- food came out with half an hour between the first and last dishes for our group, we got dessert menus but our order wasn’t taken for over half an hour, drinks were forgotten, no check in on how the food was- there were many missed opportunities for additional revenue for Black Rice, due to inattentive service 2. No mention when booking of a public holiday surcharge- we didn’t mind paying a surcharge but since the day it’s charged could be ANZAC Day OR the day it’s observed, some warning would have been good 3. The restaurant gauging on the surcharge, by saying it will be charged both days. By definition of the law, this is incorrect- when challenged, their response was that the accountant will sort it out. Again, wrong in so many ways because by then you’ve gained 15% extra profit for one of the days that a surcharge was incorrectly charged. The extent of the issues on this occasion means we are unlikely to return again, nor recommend Black Rice to friends and family

Meals were quite small in size and expensive for the amount of food. We thought we had over ordered but actually left hungry! Food was very nice though

Gorgeous family-friendly set up. Lovely setting. Food was wonderful! Sharing plates were big enough for 3-4 people. Table service have room for improvement. Will definitely visit again 🙂
