Got order slightly mixed up but it was an easy mistake to make and other than that was very good food and atmosphere.

Steak cooked just as ordered with plenty veg and slaw... not too noisey either which is always good for conversation.

The food we’ve had was nice and fresh, the service and quick and responsive. Didn’t get 5 star just because of the amount of salt they put in was on a heavy side for my liking, that won’t stop me from going back to this place though.

Lovely good food. Steak was cooked to perfection! Had to have mine well done as I am pregnant but it was still so tender and juicy. Staff were great and helpful but weren't constantly asking if everything was ok (which I really like- good balance). Love the decor too! Really nice date night.

Food standards have dramatically dropped it was same chef as our previous positive experiences dino burger was fully immersed & deep fried this time it was just the buns steak was mutilated to ensure what I will assume well done that cut it down the middle & served it to us. Potato skins were dry the inside of the kattafir prawns were still raw abit it took 15 mins after asking again for a jug of water will not be returning here again.

The food was amazing, really great flavours in my fish of the day main meal and the potato skins were also delicious. It would have been nice to have a vege option for a burger though. The staff were nice but not overly friendly, so the service was average overall, we ordered drinks but then waited for quite a while to order that we gave up and walked up to the bar to order (and they weren’t that busy either so not sure what the issue was there) - but as the food was great the rest was forgotten.

The place is nice and it has a different decoration than others, the food was good, just a bit of confusion, we order some fish and we got salmon instead, however, we still ate it and tasted really nice, other than that, the people there were really nice and smiling all the time. still happy with the whole picture.

We had a great time at Zoo Eatery celebrating my birthday with my hubby & son. Food was well presented, tasted amazing and timely. The service was friendly, helpful and prompt. We ordered a kids meal with an oreo shake, gyoza and buffalo wings (you can ask for the sauce on the side!) as entrees, and a chicken teryaki burger with fries shared. All the food was amazing however their fries were in fact amazing - they can be a below average tummy filler on a plate however they were hot, fluffy on the inside while crunchy outside. We left full, satisfied and happy! Would definitely be back again and try a different items on the menu!

Nice hidden gem for Henderson. Food was great - very well presented. Hubby loved his Teriyaki Sirloin steak and my Surf and Turf was amazing! Restaurant has a great vibe - yes pub like but cool, clean and family friendly and customer service was great! Would recommend to others and will definitely visit again.

Unfortunately we never got the full experience of first table at this eatery as they had run out of food from the night before and were short staffed so service was slow :(

Initially had high hopes for this place due to to the decor photos on Zomato but was a bit of a let down. Felt like an empty pub with some random furniture and decor around the place. Didn't even realize that there was a gambling section around the back till when I was looking around for the loo.

The food was much better than the service, relatively standard pub food with a few Asian influences. There was only 1 waitress and she was average at best as she had to go back and check with the chef/manager upon multiple questions that we had about the food.

When we finished the food, she didn't come around to clear our table till I had to go speak to her about the dessert menu, in which case to my surprise, she said that there is no dessert menu and you have to choose from the cabinet. The dessert was ok but felt like it's been sitting in the cabinet for a while.

Overall, I wouldn't really recommend the place unless you wanted to try something around Henderson.

Absolutely loved our time here at Zoo Eatery & Lounge. Food was amazing, tasted great and the dishes were presented so well - a lot of attention to detail. Customer service was top line too, all staff were so lovely and very accommodating. The environment was the icing on the cake, my kids enjoyed all the little details around the restaurant.

Restaurant atmosphere was great - very kid friendly, relaxing and interesting.
Food was really good and for a good price.
Waitress seemed to have a bit of an attitude at first but was still helpful and got much friendlier later.
Will definitely be back.

It was a really tasty meal. Staff were really friendly. Service was a little slow from the start but once we ordered our mains came out in good time. Highly recommended and I will be back again!

We had a lovely time at dinner last night. I would recommend the wagyu beef meatballs and garlic bread as starters - absolutely divine.
Our mains were good too - I had the triceratops burger - which was a delightful combination of braised pork belly, kimchi and cheese. My husband had a steak with mushroom sauce - also very good.
A nice place for a quiet Sunday dinner to wind down the weekend.

Got to say we really didn't have high expectations. The decor is more rainforest cafe than bistro. However, the food was excellent. Our steaks were very tasty & cooked perfectly with delicious accompaniments. Our son declared the kids pulled pork burger amazing. Always a good sign when you see a small menu which, we were advised, changes every four or so months depending on fresh produce available. We were impressed and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

Took my parents & daughter there for a birthday lunch they commented how nice their meals were, what let this place down for me was the guy who lit up a cigarette inside as they were leaving and blew out the smoke inside. Now these two guys are now standing right outside the door smoking and the smell is now traveling into the restaurant making things really unpleasant...thinking what else could go wrong the guy smoking actually works there

Me and my family had dinner at Zoo Eatery & Lounge for the first time last Friday. The food was great, freshly cooked, very tasty and well presented. We had 2 steak meals, steaks were cooked to perfection and the double cheese burger meal was too big for my boy to handle, which is a first for him. Apart from the mixup with one entree the waitress service overall was great. The restaurant looked amazing with it's own flair. Overall a good meal and great value, me and the fams will certainly be going back.

I love this place, it's got an awesome atmosphere and the service is always great. My only criticisms would be that they need a better dessert menu and the surf n turf meal needs rethinking.
