    Poor management and service. Booked xmas party, got told next day booking cancelled because deposit has to be in 30 days pre party date, organised it all just to be told booking cancelled anyway because they booked someone else overnight, someone who paid deposit, all happened overnight in a matter of less then 24hrs. First impressions - poor communication within the restaurant staff, excuses for their own staff miscommunication, would hate to imagine mix us on party night, never want to go here!

    On 25th May we have celebrated my husband's birthday by having dinner at River Canyon. There were 51 guests and all of us had a good time, enjoying good food and good entertainment. The staff were all very friendly and nothing was too hard for them. It was a really good night and I would not have any hesitation to recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to have an enjoyable night, with good food and good entertainment.

    I saw this restaurant advertised on Ouffer and decided to try it out since I've never been there before and love, love, love lebanese cuisine.

    I made a booking for a colleague and myself for straight after work on a Wednesday and found the entire dining experience very pleasing. We were the only patrons in the large restaurant when we arrived, however by the time we left the place started filling up.

    The deal we got was an all-you-can eat banquet which started off with lighter dishes like salad, bread and dips. Then it moved onto heavier dishes with typical lebanese food like falafel, chicken wings, tabouli and meat skewers. All which was divine with generous portions.

    My colleague and I are usually heavy drinkers whilst dining out however our beer bill was <$30 (usually $70+) this time around because we couldn't pull away from the continuous flow of delicious food!

    The service was excellent; attentive, friendly, efficient. Even the host made an effort to drop by to check in on us and have a quick chat.

    At least once a week I try to stop in for dinner here and it has fast become a favourite with my office! Great place...

    Terrible set up. Paper hides dirty linen. The chairs are worse- filthy. Nothing matches odd china, glassware and cutlery. Only 1 set of cutlery for a buffet. The food was ok but it's a buffet so I wasn't expecting much.

    We had our wedding reception at this venue and it was the most perfect choice! From the food to the service it was perfect! We had such a wonderful time and it was enjoyable. I will never forget this night and highly recommended for wedding reception or any type of functions. The flexibility of dealing with the manager was outstanding and we are truly thankful for all their help with everything! Faultless!

    We were there for christmas dinner 2012 and when we walked the place looked lovely we were seated. The food was great the drinks great service was great, plates were taken away when empty. Entertainment was great and funny at times. We were told when they when they were getting ready to taken dessert away. Then the music started and people danced. All in all a great night out, great for kids too as we had a 10 year old with us.

    This is a terrible restaurant. The food appeared as though it was cooked and then reheated, it was charcoal. The food was dry and some not edible. It had no taste. We had a voucher, you try to support local restaurants but this was a waste of money.

    River Canyon used to have such a good name but I cannot recommend this to anyone.

    Our family will never go there again. We've booked 16 people for a very important family lunch and as it turned out we're the only table in the whole restaurant. Service non-existent. No Supervisor, no manager!

    A la carte menu basic, limited, non inviting. Two hours before any mains came out. Waitress took orders from half the table for entrees only. Then came back and took orders for the other half. Result: some people got their main when the others didn’t even order it!

    Kids meals last. No water or glasses on table. Drinks very slow and coming one by one! 1.5h in and we all had one drink per person. We were there 3 hours in total and managed to get 2 drinks per person!

    No entree cutlery. No steak knives. No cutlery was replaced after the entree plates were taken away. Result: people had to share main knife and fork. Plates from entrées not cleaned away. Plain slice of bread ordered 4 times in the end. Some Lebanese naan bread came out after 2.45h! Black shriveled tiny mushrooms in pasta dishes. Black cauliflower. One person cooking in the kitchen!

    Waitress unable to communicate. In the end walks off and starts vacuuming then moping the floor. We brought our own cake but after 3 hours of this we took it back home.
