  • 5 star review  One of the best place i ever been. The place where you don’t mind being your hands and clothes dirty 😂. We ordered big mixed bags and shrimp martini thing but couldn’t finish it. The sauce is the killer. I would recommend trying it with steamed rice. Its worth every penny.

    5 star review  Had such a great experience here for my birthday! I ordered the mixed bag of seafood with garlic butter and it was absolutely delicious! They didn't have any baby octopus but we were given extra prawns instead. The service was great! The lovely staff members brought out my birthday cake, sang to me and even gifted me a rose which was a nice surprise! Thank you Kickin' Inn Petersham for a lovely experience! My friends and I left feeling very satisfied and happy 😊 Will definitely come back again!

    5 star review  What an Amazing Food Experience. The food was out of this world and the Service is first class.You definitely take your taste buds on a journey and the concept of eating off the table is a game changer. The Kids absolutely Loved it. It’s so refreshing to go out to eat and enjoy it with the family. We were lucky enough to meet Sami one of the owners who was so accommodating to our needs.

    4 star review  Seafood boil! Received a nice free dessert, must've been like a Caramel tart, nice! Came with free bibs, gloves and wipes most definitely needed. Was so filling! We got the butter mixed plate and it was good! Had alot of spices in it and jam packed. I don't know how I was supposed to pour it but I did it! Would order another, be great for winter! Maybe 3 bags required to hold the goodness 🙂

    5 star review  The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I’ve never tried anything like it. We had a couple of the mixed bags and some of the starters. Emma was especially very helpful on the night and made sure we were taken care of. A very fun experience and I look forward to coming back.

    5 star review  Fun way to eat seafood with family and friends! Make sure to book a reservation or otherwise go during off-peak times like very late lunch after 2pm if you want to walk in without a booking. We had the mystery bag which was enough for 6 people. Staying clean was pretty easy with the bibs and gloves provided. Staff were friendly and welcoming, really good venue overall.

    5 star review  Bloody love Kickin Inn, even if I can't handle the spice 🥵 gone a few times and always impressed. The food is delicious and the sauce is *chef's kiss* too good to be true. Staff always look like they're having a blast and the experience is so unique. Went a few weeks ago, Carla and her team were amazing from start to finish. Looking forward to the next visit!

    5 star review  I highly recommend this place for all seafood lovers!! The food was so flavoursome, specifically the Sha-bang sauce was really unique and delicious. I love the tipping the bag onto the table idea, I think it’s a great way to eat seafood! This restaurant is definitely one that all seafood lovers must try, you will definitely not regret it!

    5 star review  Loved the mixed bags, highly recommend the Garlic Butter and the Sha Bang sauces, amazing. Definitely an experience for the kids to eat off the table, I think they might want to eat off the table at home from now on also. The couple of times we got the fried food were quite dry. Really hope they would open stores in the north side.

    5 star review  Best place for family birthday celebrations! We have had 3 birthday dinners here for different members of our family this year and it’s always so much fun. They play the birthday song over the speakers, the entire staff comes around to sing and spoils us with cakes, drinks and presents! And of course, the food and high quality customer service never disappoints! Massive thanks to Sanjay and his team for such a fabulous and special time with my family!!! They were all more than accommodating to the many questions and requests we had 🙂

    5 star review  Delicious, I love the concept. Nice clean restaurant, friendly staff, good variety on the menu. Food was super tasty, we had the lobster and mini mixed bag with two glasses of wing for just under $80 for lunch and I was able to use the dine and discover voucher. The sauce on the seafood was delish. I really like the concept of pouring it on the table and eating with your hands.

    4 star review  Interesting experience, they dump the food out on the table and you simply dig in wearing the black latex gloves they provide. It leaves a massive mess on the table but it also fun to eat this way. As for the food (lunch), we found it to be very nice. We got the peeled prawns and the pippies. Myself and the wife both agree we would go back for a dinner feed and drinks (they have a good drinks menu).

    4 star review  Have been here a couple of times. Kickin Inn are *awesome* at seafood in a bag. The shebang sauce with a mid level of spice is my recommendation and get one of the suggested 'bags' or better still, the 'Drag and Drop' option which I think is the best way to get exactly what you want. The entree Shrimp cocktail is pricey but quite big and an OK option if you are not going the whole hog with a big bag of seafood. The lobster plate (not in a bag) was a bit dry and I would not order it again. The place is rocking on a busy night and gets chaotic, loud and messy, but overall a good atmosphere. One thing to absolutely stay away from is their so-called 'cocktails'. These overpriced barely alcoholic soft drinks served in a schooner glass are an insult to the genre. I would be shot down in flames (and sacked) if I ever presented a cocktail that looked like that where I worked. You are best off with table water which you will have to specially ask for. If you stick to the great seafood here, with that awesome shebang sauce you will want to drink right out of the bag, you are just about guaranteed a fantastic feast. Enjoy.

They politely watched and waited till we had finished our dinner and surprised me with a birthday cake with a lit candle followed by a beautiful rose. To complete the amazing experience the staff sang happy birthday to me and watched me blow out the candle. We highly recommend it. Hurry and book a table. I'm definitely going again

    4 star review  Fun experience with friends. We loved the garlic butter sauce with king crab. Be careful of the hot sauce that can drip off the tables when pouring the goods out of the bags. Lot of single use plastic being used here which made me a bit uncomfortable to be honest. Some items are understandable but cups definitely didn't have to be.

    5 star review  Had dinner here tonight, it was quite an experience. Well worth the 2 trains and 6 minutes walk to get there. We had a mixed bag with sha-bag sauce, a while lobster with garlic butter sauce which came with chips and salad and 2 serves of rice. Everything we had was delicious and tasty. The seafood was fresh and well cooked not over cooked at all, very juicy and the crabs were sweet in taste. Worth going as a group and splitting the bill. We were served by Nathan who was great with sharing the menu and giving us suggestions of what's good. Thanks for a great end to the week.

Disappointingly, several items we were after weren't in stock when we dined. Food was on the saltier side but the she-bang sauce was nice. Definitely a place to go with groups. The balloons for kids were a nice touch.
