Great place for a group event. Very helpful in the planning process. Good coordination. Vg value food.
Love Circus Circus, the perfect 'local' to have!
Great atmosphere and great food!
Really great quirky restaurant. Food was heavenly. Staff are friendly and funny!. Was a little cold where we were sitting in the restaurant but there was plenty of seating areas.
Delicious food and very generous portions. Good selection on the menu. Fun atmosphere.
Everything was as expected, good but not exceptional. One hot dish was served lukewarm.
Thanks for your feedback Wayne! May I ask which dish you are referring to? I'd like to follow up with the chefs.
Was my first visit to Circus Circus. Very enjoyable atmosphere, and a menu that provides a variety of dishes to choose from. Had a good time, and will definitely visit the restaurant again soon!
We have been many times over many years on different days of the week, lunch and dinner and always enjoyed it.
Great reception on arrival and showed to awaiting table swiftly. Waiter put the heater on for us as was a bit chilly, great attention to detail. Food arrived quickly, was hot and tasty. Plentiful portions, plates looked colourful and well balanced. Perfect in every way!
Good service, steak cooked perfectly.
really like the atmosphere and location
Imogen was great host we had a fantastic night Thanks
Great service and the food was very tasty!
Have been wanting to try this cafe for a long time, but sorry my experience wasn't good. As we arrived, we were given a table that was at the very back which wasn't that great, but there were other tables that had good atmosphere. It was a busy saturday evening, (went there for dinner), but staff were very busy so waiting times to order were really long. Food was below average. I had BBQ pork ribs which were just covered in a bath of BBQ sauce which over powered the actual pork ribs. The Banger and Mash were just two pork sausages with potato and pea mash which really shouldn't be priced at that Price. The other dish we had on the table was the Prawn coconut curry, which was so bland to eat. There was no salt at all, no flavour, just a some skinless prawn thrown into a pot of coconut cream. We had a chicken burger ordered which was the best meal out of the meals we've ordered. We had some dessert- they were presented well and tasted good. Overall, I think Circus Circus is good for bakery items, but surely not good for a meal.
Fast efficient and friendly service. Perfect for dinner before our show.
Great service and the staff went out of their way for us which we really appreciated Thanks guys 😊
Thanks for your lovely review! We look forward to your next visit!
Great staff great food! Will definitely come back
Thanks for your review Jade! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Thanks for your lovely review Monique! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The service is so good that when they didn't have the spirit that I ordered, they went up the road to another establishment and got me my drink. I was rather impressed. Very friendly staff. Delicious food. We'll definitely be back.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us! We can't wait to have you back in again!
Very disappointed with the service. We chose Circus Circus because my friend is vegan and they have a "Vegan Chili" on the menu which she thought looked great. When we arrived at 5pm they had already run out of the vegan chili, and the staff didn't seem to understand what vegan meant even after we explained it to them. After asking what was in the salad dressing, our waiter let us know that the chef could do the special pasta as vegan, but when it arrived it was covered in cheese. It was very disappointing that the only vegan item on the menu had run out before dinner service really even started... I wouldn't go here if you have any specific dietary needs.
