    Our first time visiting Drum. We went as a couple, had wine by the glass - approx $15 / glass. Both Pinot Noir and Shiraz were excellent. We had the "Wednesday evening meal special" @$49 per person, which was 2 entree, shared main, 2 sides and 1 dessert. We had coffee instead of dessert so it wasn't a"better value" choice than ordering off the menu, but it was a wonderful way to explore 5 different menu items. All of which were excellent, tasty, well prepared and presented. The music was low and subtle, and the decor is dark and intimate. We had an indoor corner table. Overall a very good choice for dinner for 2. We will be back.

    We stopped in for dinner before a show at the Powerhouse. Was a great location just down the road. Seating inside is super comfortable but they also have outdoor seating that is nice. The food....amazing! Perfect size portions and tasted sooooo good. We will be back to try more.

    We went for dinner and we’re disappointed as it’s more of a bar with snacks. The prawn ravioli was $41 for 4 small pieces and in my opinion average so essentially extremely expensive. I would say a nice place to go for a drink but not for dinner. The atmosphere was good and the waiting staff attentive, just not what we expected.

    Junya runs an awesome restaurant. He and his staff are calm and friendly without being too much so. Super accommodating too. The chefs really do a great job and everything is so good. Always a great ambience there. My only nitpick was the music was a tad too loud and a bit grating for a Monday night (maybe better for a Friday or Sat night crowd) but we always have a good time and are looked after beautifully by the manager and his staff. Very much appreciate it.

    Went here with my partner for New Years Eve. The food was fantastic. It was all Tapas style, which suited us well. We got 5 dishes in total and all were full of flavour. The staff were warm and very accommodating. The ambiance was nice, but not too flash. Overall, we loved it and are looking forward to returning
