I took my non-vegan friends to Sirens on the first day of our Tassie holiday. I'd never been there before and we had a bit of a hard time finding the place. The front isn't well signposted and as one of my friends so charmingly stated "it looks more like the outside of a brothel then a vegan restaurant".
We didn't receive a warm welcome, the waitstaff were quite condescending and I wasn't impressed when they rudely told a man waiting behind our group to leave his umbrella at the door.
When we got to our table they didn't offer us any water, we had to ask for it, and even then they failed to bring it...we had to remind them a second time! It took ages for them to get around to taking our order and when the food finally arrived they got some of it wrong and almost gave my gluten intolerant friend the wrong meal!
That being said, the food was very tasty. I had the banana dahl and shared a vegan dip plate with a friend, both were fantastic! The interiors are bohemian chic - I really loved it!
I would probably go back to Sirens, but their staff should get some serious customer service lessons!
fabulous food, inspiring interiors
snobby service, slow
