    We were interested to hear about the changes from Indigo to Hadley's at Mingara. However, we were disappointed by the reduced menu. Three of our party had the schnitzels, which were as good as usual. One asked for a side of greens, which were also good. I had been looking forward to ordering the Chicken Scallopini, which I had eaten previously at Indigo, but was disappointed to find it had been cut from the menu. I had been looking forward to seeing what was on offer from the Pizza and Pasta Bar, but also disappointed that there was a very small list of dishes on offer. I thought that there could have been a pizza that would have appealed to more people. I decided to try the new Chicken Linguine, but found the sauce very gluggy, and quite bland. For $28.00, I had expected something a lot better and I did not think that it was very good value. I realise that there needs to be a transition period, but feel that there could be a a better offering. We had not been out very much during the Covid period and have really enjoyed our meals at Indigo recently, which have been very good.

    The lamb shank that my husband and I had for dinner was tasty but was not very hot. Our son had a burger and said it was rather dry. Restaurant should improve when renovations are completed. We had to wait a long time for our mains to arrive and then dessert took a long time as well.

    You only had 1 person on the register taking orders, we think it is very important to have more staff on so orders can be taken within 10 mins of lining up. We lined up for 25 mins just to place an order. Our kids were getting very unsettled, most restaurants you can order your food in 5 mins but 25 mins just to order is ridiculous. We won’t be attending for meals there again until we see more staff taking orders and on the floor in general.

    Disappointed. You have to leave table and line up to order food and drinks and pay in advance, unless you scan barcode. Very ordinary. Virtually no personal contact other than delivery of food.

    The menu had “temporary menu” and I hope it changes soon because our food was so over done and parts of it was barely warm and inedible due to that and the very tough meat and rock hard roasted fennel. We were early diners and it was not at all busy so I don’t know why it was so “not good”.

    So disappointed, prefer better quality dining in such a big club you would get at least one restaurant that reflects fine dining. Food was very ordinary can go to pubs for this menu. No table service, even had to get your own water. Would not be attending Hadleys again unless they change their service .

    I hope the new menu will be more exciting and cooked better. Over cooked steak, poor presentation and food orders incorrect. A very underwhelming experience. If the new Hadleys is anything like last night, our families won't be back.

    A very well presented meal in a pleasant environment The steak, which I had, was cooked to my designation and it was not dry. The other diner had lamb, and he said that it was tasty. The servings were generous. The only downside was the noise level of the music, which was too loud. In general, though, our expectations were well and truly met.

    While very welcoming on arrival at reception things slid downhill fast. I’m a local and drink down stairs sometimes which is good but up stairs very under staffed in main bar which took at least 15 min for our first drink. after that the host at indigo didn’t wait or sit the whole table to revel specials. Indigo bar shut, not ideal. Personally my meal was cold but did have potential, wife’s while nice was bland, dads steak was chewy but my sons was good (chicken snitty. Very cold draft where we sat although no fault of the clubs. After dinner went downstairs which was much more pleasant plenty of staff clean and good atmosphere.

    We had a very pleasant meal at the Indigo Restaurant. While the vegetables served with the salmon were a little undercooked, the salmon was very nice. We ordered the New York steak, which was unfortunately unavailable, so decided on the Scotch fillet. The steak we were served was more like a sirloin than a scotch fillet, but it was very good, with lovely flavour. We also ordered the Chicken Scallopini, this was very very nice and the chicken was very tasty, being cooked on a char grill.

    The food was either good depending on what was ordered or average. One diner ordered a steak which was tough and the brisket burger was too fatty and one of the battered fish and chips was over cooked.

    I am an interstate visitor. Booked lunch with my Father who is a member. I arrived 30 mins before my father. I was with my brother who is a resident of nsw. At the front we were asked by 2 staff members for our id. My brother produced his d/licence and I produced my licence via my Sa government app on my phone. This was apparently not satisfactory and needed to produce a hard copy of my licence, which I was unable to provide as I don’t have 1. I was told I couldn’t enter the establishment until I could provide 1. I then asked if I could talk to the manager, who then asked my brother if he was willing to take responsibility for me. I then simply had to fill out my name and address on a computer screen and then sign it, which I complied with. I am a regular visitor to Nsw as I have family there and I have never come across a more officious and unhelpful group. I appreciate that I/D production and sign ins are important, to comply with state regulations, but the club should also make allowances for interstate visitors who have to comply with their state regulations and may only have this form of I/d. I am a 62yo and haven’t been asked for another person to be responsible for me since I was a child. The whole experience was embarrassing and demeaning. I won’t be returning

    I have been an Indigos customer for many years and I stopped coming after the restaurant's food went downhill, this establishment was the place to go we had many social functions but over the past few years the place, food, and service have a lot to be desired. The meal my mother had was pork belly and the whole meal was lukewarm and the veges were as hard as rocks, I have heard of crispy but that was ridiculous and my meal looked nothing like what was advertised on the menu board, pull up your socks and standards as you will lose a lot more customers.

    We had a reservation for 2 and were taken to a table lacking good lighting and that was subject to a cold breeze from the A/C. This was disappointing having taken the time and trouble to prebook a table. The Monday night special of lamb shank came only warm and both our meals had to be sent back to be reheated - but it was tasty.

    Kent and I have eaten at Indigo 3 times in the last three weeks, each time we have had scotch fillet, chips and salad, everything on our plates was very fresh, salad dressing great, I had creamy garlic sauce on the side last night and it was perfect. I guess it was a little expensive, however we have to expect prices are higher at the moment, and we thought we got great value for money. Our steak was rare to medium, just done to our liking!!

    Last night I dined at Indigo with a guest. Quite frankly, both of us were extremely disappointed with our meals. We both had the pumpkin soup special to start. There was a mystery substance in the soup that reminded us of tapioca, and marred the soup, which itself was delicious. Perhaps the traditional sour cream &amp; chives would have been a better alternative. For the main course, my guest had the karaage chicken skewers which were dry and overcooked, to the point where it was impossible to tell if it was chicken, or just breadcrumbs. I had the pork schnitzel special, which was served with undercooked chips and coleslaw. The schnitzel itself was awful! Dry and tasteless! Fortunately the mushroom sauce saved it from being inedible. We did not report this, as we did not want the night further ruined by confrontation. However, no one came to clear the table during the 15 minutes we sat there when we had finished our meal. On the balance side, this is the first bad meal I've had there.

    The schnitzel special was good value. The chicken was very tasty. Unfortunately it only came with coleslaw, no vege and only onion gray, no alternative. I had just the schnitzel and chips. My husband likes all those things and thoroughly enjoyed his meal and the generous size of it.
