Now who is hungry? 🙂

If you are wanting to enjoy some of these divine restaurants but are restricted to a student budget.. Check out this awesome website where you can receive 50% off your entire meals for groups of between 2-4 people..


The way it works is you pay $10 to book the first table of the dinner service, normally at 5pm, 5.30pm or 6pm and get to enjoy the meal half price. The restaurants do this to attract more customers by appearing busy. Its a win – win!!

Happy eating 🙂
