Birthday dinner at Rubyos


Without further ado, I headed out to Rubyos voted best fusion restaurant in Newtown with my partner in crime to test out the Liven app myself.

First step, I downloaded the app.

Second step, I added my credit card details and also added the discount code I was supplied.

Third step, I selected the restaurant I was dining at.

Fourth step, Deciding on what to have then ordering our meal.

Fifth step, When we finished our meal, I let them know I was paying with the Liven app. I pressed the "Request Bill" button which then gives you a bill request number.

Within a few minutes, the receipt comes through. Feel free to add a tip (just under the Amount due), apply any Liven promotion discounts you have before proceeding.

Sixth step, You get money back in the form of Liven cash back which you can either donate to charity or save up for another meal in the future with any of the Liven restaurants.

Liven's current charities include RSPCA, National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Royal Children's Hospital, beyondblue, The Salvation Army, OZharvest with plenty more charities jumping on board.

Now this is a great incentive especially as I received 25% cash back on my meal purchase which I donated away.

Dining out using the Liven app


There are currently over 80 restaurants in Sydney to choose from with new restaurants joining in each day. With so many different cuisines to suit any taste buds including Chur Burger, Subsolo and Busshari to name a few, the problem will be choosing where to go.

Liven, the restaurant loyalty and rewards app is available in Sydney and Melbourne with over 500 restaurants on board and counting.

What are you waiting for? Go to liven.com.au for more info and start rewarding yourself.

For my Rubyos experience, I loved that there were so many different banquets to choose from. My eyes and tummy settled on the Seafood Sampler.

From the start the guacamole crostini had you salivating for more. Delicate micro herbs added bursts of flavours with the nori seaweed roulade and smoked salmon. The cinnamon roasted sweet potato salad was a refreshing surprise with shaved green apple and pomegranate dressing and disappeared as fast as it appeared on the table.

The lemon myrtle and black pepper calamari had my mouth zinging with the chilli lime aioli, the baked Atlantic Salmon with Thai green curry marinade was a surprising delight and you couldn't go past the New York style crush chat potatoes for a little indulgence.

After all this food, I did manage a peek at the dessert menu but I didn't have an ounce of room to fit it in. My note for next time is to leave some room for their passionfruit crème brulee or rose water scented panna cotta or their blackberry parfait and meringue stack. Or just come back for the chef's special dessert platter for 2 for myself.
