Bushfire Kitchen


My burger

This restaurant has a classy look, nice relaxed layout inside and an easy on the wallet menu. My wife and I dropped by here for dinner last night at around 6pm. Not to my surprise the restaurant was virtually packed but we were able find a nice table within a couple of minutes no problem. We checked out the dinner menu on the board and the delicious looking food options in the glass display buffet. In the end the very tempting burger selection proved overwhelming.

A very sweet cashier named Sarah helped us with our final choices. We also added a regular serve of sweet potato fries to share and I opted for an Alpine Duet IPA from the very pleasing choice of craft beers on the beverage menu board. With my cold beer in hand we retreated to our table looking out to the pretty night lights in the parking lot. It was very nice of the co-owner Clive to drop by our table for a chat knowing we were new customers.


That doesn’t happen everywhere we dine ! Our burgers arrived at our table within a very reasonable time considering how busy the place appeared to be. My wife had ordered the American burger and I couldn’t resist the sound of the Argentinian burger with of course our shared serve of sweet potato fries. Let me say that we both thought our burgers were absolutely on the money & cooked exactly as we requested plus the focaccia buns were as fresh as daisies. While I sat there enjoying my cold beer and chatting with my wife I couldn’t help but think what a relaxing space this is. Soothing uptempo music playing gently in the background enhanced a really good vibe all round.


On our way home my wife remarked we must come back for breakfast soon. This restaurant serves very fresh & high quality cuisine at great prices with fast friendly service inside a beautiful space. Keep in mind this restaurant is open 7 days a week serving breakfast, lunch & dinner and a reservation is not required. That’s hard to beat in an upscale shopping center with heaps of parking out the front !
