Restaurant Cafe and Bar

428 Pollen Street Thames
Phone: (07) 848 9406

"Absolutely gorgeous food! No wonder it's called Gastronomics!
Very reasonable price, clean and tidy environment and lovely waitstaff with lovely service.
Unfortunately I was too full to have dessert, but will definitely try next time.
The '5 Hour Braised Lamb Shank' is so tender with wonderful taste,
even my Mum who doesn't like lambs loved this dish.
The 'Prime Silver Fern Farm Beef Eye Fillet, Home Smoked' has a strong taste of smoked beef,
and was so unforgettable.
Also the 'Brazilian Lobster which was very chewy and had the amazing taste of fresh seafood.
Will definitely return next time" - Phoenix Zhang

"Walked in the door and it was like being welcomed into a friend's home.
The Chef came out and greeted us - it was really nice.
Waiter was attentive, food was exceptional.
Enjoyed the atmosphere too. Thanks everyone"

"We had dinner at Gastronomics and it was amazing.
The food was to die for and the service was outstanding.
We were treated like royalty. The restaurant is clean and in great condition.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, it's 100% delicious" - Kerry Mason

Carpet & upholstery cleaning

Contrast Carpet Cleaning

Call Matthew
022 367 4921

" I recently enlisted the help of Matthew White of Contrast Carpet Cleaning and am delighted with the result. The carpets had been laid about 20 years ago, and subjected to traffic by pets and grandkids but came up like new. In addition I asked him to clean a well-upholstered lounge suite and it is now back in the same 'showroom' condition as when I purchased it 25 years ago.
I can confidently recommend his prompt and efficient work"
- Len Abercrombie, Te Puru

"Matthew recently cleaned the upholstery on my lounge suite that hadn't been cleaned since it was purchased many years ago. He did a wonderful job and exceeded my expectations.He was very professional, efficient and knowledgeable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services"
- Caral Othman

"Matthew arrived promptly and got straight to work. He was very knowledgeable and manage to completely remove a difficult stain that we'd tried to shift several ways already.
The price was more than fair, our carpets look like new, we can't recommend his services enough"
- Jacqui Burrow
