Ever been to a RSL for dinner? Warramunga Restaurant in Glen Waverley isn’t half bad and even has a buy one get one free main offer with the entertainment book. If you’ve ever wondered about their name, it is named after HMAS Warramunga, a Tribal Class Destroyer which served in the South West Pacific in World War II. The ship itself was named after an Aboriginal tribe in the Northern Territory.
We’ve been multiple times – their serving sizes are much bigger than expected (almost unreasonably big – how is it sized for one?) so be aware of this whilst ordering.
They take bookings and seating wise it’s quite spaced out and with little pressures to leave, it’s a great restaurant to sit down and chat for a while.
Food wise they have the usual RSL fare – fish and chips, steak, chicken parmigiana etc.
Pumpkin soup is a staple at these kinds of restaurants – it goes well with the complimentary dinner rolls.
My brother especially praised their parmigiana and I agree – succulent chicken with a layer of tomato, ham and melted cheese. A rather tiny side of salad in comparison but it only looks like this in the photo because the parmigiana occupies most of the plate.
Their risotto was a heavy affair – mainly because of the portion given. I think it was lamb risotto with tomato.
Steak wise, order a little rarer than what you mean – if you really want medium, probably try order medium rare. Served with potato mash and steamed vegetables.
The lamb cutlets really demonstrate what I mean by large portions – which other restaurant would give four pieces?
Fish and chips – keep in mind this dish is exactly what you’d expect and not fancy in the least (especially the fish – if you’re looking for fish nearby, try hook line and sinker),
So if you’re looking for a place to sit down, chat and where everyone is guaranteed to have something they want from an extensive menu with pub classics, Warramunga isn’t half bad. Whilst the food isn’t anything to write home about, it’s quite consistent and go with an appetite – you’ll need it to cope with their serving sizes.
