    The food was excellent, very tasty and plenty of it, well done. The service was not great, but they are only students, so I did not expect anything else. Great value for money and again the food was delicious.

    Great food with personalised services. The student waiter for our table was polite, attentive and friendly. He overheard our visit was for my birthday, later I got a cute and personal happy birthday message written in the chocolate sauce, very touched. All the best to all students that night, we really enjoyed the food and hospitality.

    The deserts were underwhelming but the mains were very good although my onion baji was under-cooked-batter was still doughy and wet and onion was extremely pungent-not cooked at all.

    The William Angliss Restaurant offers tremendous value for money, there is no doubt about that. Going there, you have to understand that all the staff including cooks are students, and that you cannot expect the highest standards of service - but may be very good. On the night I went with two others, the waiters were fine, but seemed timid and kept apologizing over the slightest thing. We would have preferred less of this and more confidence and personality, even if things went wrong. We had to wait ages for pre-dinner drinks to be served, but everything else came promptly. My meal was excellent, but my fellow diners had some problems with theirs, reporting 'rubbery' dumplings, a fish dish which was not hot, and frozen chocolate mousse. However, the evening as a whole was fine, and the bill was very moderate.

    food was disappointing compared to previous visits, steak chewy and no greens/veg - just steak and potato so not very healthy, and such loud music - why?

    My fish was not cooked and had to be taken back to kitchen and was replaced by another fresh meal. The waitress was not familiar with the menu. When I asked for the fish she seemed confused about whether it was on the menu. Also took my plate away before my friend had finished her meal.

    We were not disappointed with our long held booking for the special buffet. The hot soup was complimented, the soft shell crab was recommended by many on our table. One of our party said although he cooked omlettes but the one available at the restaurant was said to be among the best he had eaten. For me the silky chocolate mousse, the chocolate brownie and the luscious Eton mess will be long remembered.One of our waitresses made a real impression by answering all questions. A fabulous night.

    The buffet lunch was of high quality with an excellent range of dishes. The food quality and presentation was excellent, and it was great to speak with the students who made the dishes. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive. Apprentice Chef Serena was particularly outstanding with her knowledge of, and quality of the desserts. Our group also enjoyed the atmosphere as it was not too noisy or crowded, and we were able to chat easily. We will definitely return.

    Very good to support students who are learning aspects of cooking, waitering and management. The food was generally very good and the selection of wines excellent. The wait staff were very new, nervous and lacked experience and some had poor communication skills - but they will learn. Value for money.

    A group of 11 workmates had the Buffet dinner. The drinks were really strong and needed a bit of work flavour wise, but still good. The food was amazing and plentiful. It was good to speak to the students that made the dish. They seemed proud of their work and so they should be. It would be great if they could walk around and ask the diners what they thought. They could get some great feedback.

    Buffet dinner at @williamanglissinstitute. Everything was good though what really stood out was the salmon and fried chicken. Skip the fish cake and noodles, unless you love Chinese noodles. We also had soup, and loved the butter coins (didn't actually eat that 😋).

    Staff attentive & helpful.Choice of wines good. Food serves adequate size. We had 2 courses, one of which was tasty & well presented, the other for each (fish dish of barramundi & mussels,pork belly) was only so-so). We appreciate it's a training restaurant & food is not of professional standard but would like to give some feedback: Steak cooked as ordered but a bit grissly. Pork belly not crispy. Fish "broth" a bit tasteless & weak. Chips excellent & crispy but had a faint taste/smell of fish!

    I'm an advocate for apprentices and hospitality students, this gives students and diners an opportunity to experience all facets of hospitality.Tim the FOH manager was very nice and treated students with respect, Taka our waiter was very helpful and is an international student who has come to Australia to learn hospitality, Overall our experience was great, enjoyed food the wine was very nice, the prices for everything was great, I have already recommended Angliss. Keep up the great work

    This was the second time that we had dined at Angliss Restaurant, so it was hard not to compare the two experiences. We had a traditional 3-course Christmas luncheon, which was exceptional value. The tables were beautifully decorated - white linen, crackers and Christmas themed table displays. Unfortunately there were no options with the luncheon, so whilst salmon gravlax might excite many as an entrée (and is a luxury dish), two of our dining companions did not enjoy. It is a training facility, however it was hard to see how the waiting staff were given guidance, unlike the first time we dined at Angliss Restaurant. And our waiter did require some guidance! We were disappointed that cocktails were not on offer and the "stewed" coffee and tea at the completion of luncheon was reminiscent of many budget/high volume "cafes". Minor criticisms aside, we had a delightful, great value luncheon.
