We had a lovely dinner in Evelyn's (I've eaten here a few times and it's always been amazing - particularly the buttermilk pancakes on the breakfast menu). We had a gorgeous chicken satay noodle dish for our main and delicious French toast with ice cream and honeycomb for dessert. Both dishes were absolutely delicious, beautifully cooked with tasty, well balanced flavours. Our waiter was also fantastic. He was really polite and couldn't have done any more for us. I highly recommend Evelyn's and I can't wait to return! Thank you.

Lovely restaurant that provides a diverse and healthy lunch and brunch menu with a range of interesting soft drinks and health shots. I had the kedgeree bowl which was nice but very salty.

Had a great lunch at Evelyn’s on my daughters birthday. Food was absolutely delicious, steak and eggs was fabulous! Two of us are Gluten Free and had so much choice. We tried both the lavender and lychee lemonades which were lovely. Our waiter was so knowledgeable and welcoming. We will definitely be back. A new favourite 😁

We generally like the food at Evenlyn's and we have been there numerous times.
However, it has progressively turned into a very badly managed restaurant experience.
We booked a table for two and were seated immediately, even though we showed up 15' earlier. The tables for two are piled right next to each other. You are sitting barely 50 centimetres away from the other guests. It feels cramped.
The Saturday early afternoon was ridiculously busy. We sat down and waited for a good 10' and no one had had the time to come take our order - or even drinks order.
We had a look at the menu and looked at the prices. Gone up again since the last time we were there.
We considered the delay, the amount of noise in the restaurant, the cramped space and the overpriced menu and decided to leave without ordering.

Service was Second to none and despite there being no Kedgeree on offer, we will be back.... for the Kedgeree.
Korean bun and the flat iron steak were both amazing.

Hi there, Evelyn's is one of my favourite spots in town but i didn't think the food was as good as normal if i'm honest. I'm not sure if thee was a different chef on?
The drinks took a while to turn up and the coffee was very on the bitter side. And the toilets were really not pleasant.
As usual, the atmosphere was great and the menu is on point as ever. My lychee lemonade was delicious.

I'll be coming back but hope to see the same quality of food as previous visits. :-)

Walked it to Evelyns after booking a table a few days before. They immediately cramped us up next to two other tables of people to the point where we could hear their entire conversation. We then asked if we could move and the manager told us 'no', he was very rude and completely unsympathetic to the fact that we couldn't hear ourselves think. The music was really loud and the environment is quite stressful. We ended up leaving before eating (they still made us pay for our meals which we didn't even see). The manager was incredibly disrespectful and rude. I will continue to dissuade everyone who asks me about evelyns from going. I've never been more disappointed.

The pancakes are always so so insane!! Thank you for the amazing service (also the adorable bartender guy who wished me a happy birthday so service is always 110%) food is beautiful, the price is reasonable for the flavour and quality! I tried the Ivy and the experience was tragic compared to what Evelyns provides. Evelyn’s all the way!

Table all ready for us when we arrived. Friendly greeting and welcome. Menu is fairly limited, but we'd come for the Sunday roast and it was great. Our vegan eaters were very happy with their vegan roasts. Pleasant environment and nicely laid out restaurant. Thanks for a pleasant afternoon.
