Before this place came along, Mamma used to think that the ultimate in 'Hunky Dory' was Peter Andre walking out of the water al-la Mysterious Girl. Nowadays his head has been replaced with our favourite blue fish - but no more Peter Andre daydreams for this Mamma - Hunky Dory shall now mean DAMN fine fish and chips. Mamma says Friday night take away just stepped up a level. This 'fancy' F&C is a bustling hive of activity at tea time and don't be surprised if you have to wait a little for a seat or need to share a spot with a new friend, as this place at Eastland's Town Square gets PACKED! Mamma knows why - the food is amazing. The fish is cooked to perfection and matched beautifully with the salads and sauces. The calamari is so soft and tender - nothing like the stringy rings of a 90s bistro menu! Space is tight so you may not wish to bring the pram unless you are keen on sitting outside, but there are highchairs and some smaller items on the menu to choose from. If you ask nicely you might even score your little one an old school hand held water game to play with!
Mamma's special mention: Eastland is looking pretty damn fine since their latest renovations. Hunky Dory is found in the Town Square and is best reached by the lifts or the escalators outside Target and David Jones.
