Hurricane's Grill, Roscoe St, Bondi Beach

Hurricane's Grill, Roscoe St, Bondi Beach
Monday 10 July, 2006

If you are wondering where all the people are in Bondi on a Monday night I have uncovered the secret........Hurricane's Grill. It's packed and I have it on good authority that it is consistently packed every night of the week.

Located on the corner of Campbell Pde & Roscoe St in the pedestrian mall, Hurricane's Grill spills out onto the pavement and attracts a steady stream of potential diners. There's a bar with big screen TV's on one side and an enormous dining space on the other. We didn't have a reservation and the only available table was outside under the large heaters. It was still cold however the massive servings warm you up quickly.

Within moments of sitting down I noticed the food on the next table - enormous plates of ribs and large crusty bread served on wooden boards. It looked like every table was eating ribs..ribs everywhere I looked! These are serious ribs as each person had a very attractive bib tied around their neck.

The menu outlines Hurricane's Grill as "specialising in premium quality King Island Beef, tasty Pork & Lamb Ribs and Chicken. Our dishes are marinated in a basting sauce originating from South Africa making our flavour unique from traditional steak houses". I hardly had to look at the menu before deciding to order some garlic mushrooms and the fillet of beef tenderloin. My dinner buddies ordered the Steak & rib combo and the Short cut sirloin. Each main comes with the option of baked potato or fries and a choice of sauce e.g. pepper, creamy mushroom and cheese whiz (yes, that cheese whiz).

Not long after starting our meals the sidewalk was brimming with eager diners all eyeing off our orders. It's that kind of place. The servings were huge and the meat was good but it's not outstanding - the basting sauce was sweet-ish and certainly offers a unique flavour. The sauce was served in a small pot on the side of the plate as was the sour cream for the potato. Unfortunately both looked and tasted like they had been sitting in the pots for days....

The mains average around the $30 mark so it's not cheap but you are getting a massive feed for this price. The service was efficient and pleasant. Take your appetite!

Poor customer service experience. The business focused on driving traffic and cramming too many tables with the noise at an incredible level. Can't rate food this time as they forgot to give it to me and complaining didn't help so lucky me , they didn't charge me! Fix the basics Hurricanes. 4 years of patronage, its such a shame,
