Wanting a decent meal at a spectacular price?. Then you need to try Sydney Junction Hotel Restaurant situated at SJ's Hotel, Beaumont Street, Hamilton.
The restaurant boasts an exciting menu, from beef dishes, to seafood, with quite a selection on offer. I partook on this occasion, (signifying that I will definitely be going back), of the chicken schnitzel with vegetables.
The serving size was enormous, in fact I could not finish it all. The chicken was mouth watering, each morsel melted in your mouth, without any hint of stringy chicken found in some chicken dishes.
The vegetables were cooked to perfection, with a good serving of broccoli, corn, beans, potato, carrots, and, squash.
The meal was served quite quickly, about 15 minutes in total from time of ordering. That is not bad, as the restaurant was quite full. This I believe was also a good thing . It gave my friends and I time to have a couple of well priced drinks, and time to chat before the feast.
The atmosphere was nice and felt warm. From the moment you stepped into the restaurant to the moment you leave you were made to feel welcome.
The total price for my meal was $10.00. The drinks came to about $17.00, so in total I spent $27.00 for an excellent mouth-watering meal.
The crowd ranged from family groups, party groups to romantic settings for two. In fact, we witnessed a wedding proposal. Half the ladies in the restaurant burst into tears as this great offer being made between two lovers took place.
If I had to give this restaurant a rating out of 10? It gets an 8 from me. Check it out . You will not be sorry you did!
