  • I think this is definitely a must-try place for seafood lovers! I ordered their assorted seafood and the three of us had some crayfish and some mud crab, which was huge! Their seafood is fresh and delicious! They are awesome. Really enjoyed this dinner. Well respected! I look forward to many more visits and will definitely make this a regular place to visit.

    I came here for my birthday with some work friends. The food here is great. Highly recommend having their signature seafood bags with their sha-bang sauce. It's delish! It's a nice place to come and enjoy a great meal with people 😁👍

    really good food, but most of it is shell and less meat, doing a lot of work opening the crab to get some meat. wish there was a more buttery base on the flavour list. pricey. lots of seating. pretty quite during the weekdays.

    Staff were friendly, food was good. Parking can be tricky in the area but we managed to find a timed spot. Service was a little slow and we had to ask for the crab crackers which should have been supplied but staff were attentive once you got their attention. We ordered the share bag with the mild spice and it was a nice tang, will order the next level up next time. Bit of fun eating off the table if you are dining in.

    It is quite a unique experience to go hands on with saucy seafood on a table. I liked the novelty but to be a sustainable place to visit they should really up there game on some seafood items like blue swimmer crabs yabbies. Simply too small for the price we pay. Shebang sauce is extremely tasty if specially when you absorb it with baguette. Prawns here are generally great quality. Large and succulent!

    Quiet lunch in Petersham, friendly staff and amazing portion for the seafood bags. Can't really say it was the best seafood experience as the blue swimmer crab in the bag was not really blue swimmer in my opinion. But it was a fun experience. The mixed sauce & garlic butter sauce were delicious.

    Love how Fresh and tasty the seafood here is! Two of us ordered a shared bag, extra Bay Bugs and 2 serves of garlic bread. Finished very full with around $94pp but it's worth it and i would come back again. Wait time could be a bit long during peak hours so my tip is to order side dish to start with while you wait.

    Best food ever, and being able to eat with your hands like a kid just adds to the experience. It was one of the best dinners I have had in a while, the service was great and the restaurant is really nice. The menu is amazing and the spicy sauce is the perfect amount of spice. Loved it!!

    Came for a birthday celebration and it thoroughly and enjoyable experience. We almost got a Cajun spice fatigue at the end of session as the portion was generous. We had the mixed bag, and a few other sides. The sides need to be bigger for what their priced at in my opinion. Overall it can get pricey dining here, but the experience was good too. Worth a try at the very least, and revisit if you like the spice and seafood. Staff was helpful with table order, requests and the birthday setup, although they seem under resourced. Keep it up!

    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.

  • 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!

    Really good Cajun style seafood boils. A little experience with eating shell fish is required to have a great time. Usually a really good restaurant for big groups. It does tend to get messy so it's best you visit with people you're comfortable eating around. Mud crabs in the shanbang sauce with a above acerage level of spice was my favorite!

    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.

    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 🙂

    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.

    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.

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!!!

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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
