Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

Embrace more of the good stuff and less of the bad at Boy & Bird. Championing natural, organic, fresh food and flavours, this restaurant offers a sunny-side-up approach to modern dining.

The colourful and airy restaurant décor is sure to brighten your day. Think quirky fabrics and chequered feature walls. There’s nothing airy-fairy about the food here though, which is created with a serious approach towards sourcing honest, fresh and responsible produce. There’s a cute cartoon devil on the menu beside dishes with something ‘a little bit naughty’ in the ingredients and staff are happy to help advise.

‘Local, farm fresh and free range’ is Boy & Bird’s philosophy when it comes to its chicken dishes. You’ll find a cosmopolitan menu with salads, hot rolls and beautifully presented main meals on offer. Choose between a quarter, half or whole chicken depending on the size of your appetite.

My friends and i had a good feed at boy&bird. Food prices are affordable and presentation wise- thumbs up. Their food choices are good for sharing - the whole chicken was too much for us 4, we even took the half home, maybe becausw we had a lot of sides and appetizers as well. Chicken though was dry, so i had to use most of the gravy- which was not good either. We finished the meal with chocolate fondant- which made our night. The dessert was the best of all that we ordered, and next was the koftas. The chocolate milkshake though was just in a bottle, it was yummy but thought i would get more than just a small
Bottle of chocolate milk drink. I’d rate the whole
Experience at 3.7 - the dessert made a big difference!!

Such an incredible first experience at Boy and Bird that has left me already planning my next meal there! The food was AMAZING, couldn’t pick a favourite dish because it was all just so tasty. Only comment would be that it did take a while for it to come out despite the place being pretty empty at that time but hey, it was worth the wait.

Boy and Bird had beautiful food in a well set out dining area. The portion sizes were just right and dessert (lemon tart) was the perfect way to end a good night catching up with a friend.

Food was delicious, and came on time. Confit duck purée was really good, but was hoping the duck and chicken could be juicer. Enjoyed the buttermilk chicken quite a lot. Service was brilliant.

I really like my buttermilk chicken hot roll, and my partner loved his dessert - a chocolate fondue and wants to go back just for the dessert! A really cool decor of the restaurant too.

I never really heard about Boy & Bird much before but a friend of mine was raving about it as they tried it through first table. A friend and I went and really enjoyed it. With the first table deal we were able to order starters, main and a dessert which were all so tasty. The service was so good, our waitress made sure we were well looked after. I couldn't fault it. I would recommend this to my friends as a great casual dining experience

This is probably my 4th time dining here, there's a reason I keep coming back, the food & service is simply amazing. It was my cousins birthday when we dined, we had a huge feast for all 4 of us, shared starters, and an array of mains! That buttermilk chicken is insanely good! My cousin had the half chicken with gravy & chunkies & she said it was the best chicken and gravy she had ever had.. I sneaked in a birthday cake before the others arrived & managed to successfully embarrass my cousin, the birthday girl! I had actually forgot to bring candles, but the amazing staff put a little candle on the cake for me & brought it out! We left some cake with them as a thank you for being so amazing! 11/10 as always!

Really enjoyed the food here, they know how to cook a tasty chook!

Service was great too, was well waited on but not over the top. Food came out quickly as well which was nice as we had a restless toddler along with us.

We had an amazing time at Boy & Bird, we got 50% + off all food for a table of 4 and only paid $73!! We had shared starters, mains each & shared a huge salad between us, then shared desserts! Such a bargain for 4 people! Highly recommend a First Table booking for Boy & Bird, the chicken is incredible.. especially the buttermilk chicken starter! It's a MUST!!! :)

5 stars in every area. The food was mouth-wateringly good, and we ordered A LOT. The buttermilk fried chicken starter is to die for, it was the winner of the night, closely followed by the Dutch apple doughnuts with salted caramel sauce. Amazing! But the service is really what made the experience what it was for us. From the moment we stepped in the door, staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. Absolutely exceptional service, couldn't fault it. We will definitely be adding Boy & Bird our list of favourites!
