Junction Grill is the newly opened restaurant at Crown Perth. Located inside the casino overlooking the gaming floor, it was an obviously popular choice for gamblers looking for some lunch I noted on our visit. One section of the restaurant is open to the kitchen where you can see several chefs busily preparing meals. Upon entering we asked to be seated at one of the empty booths but were told we couldn’t as the tables hadn’t been prepared yet. We said that it didn’t bother us but this particular staff member was very reluctant not to seat us there. However when it was time to order we again asked another member of staff if we could move and this other member of staff said it would be ok. Then the girl cleaning the table wouldn’t let us actually sit down until all the table was set properly! Quite funny in the end but I guess staff have been trained to only seat customers at set tables.
We decided to share a serve of Wood fired Roasted Garlic and Herb Bread $5.95 to begin. Slices of crusty bread with a garlicky butter middle. We really enjoyed this.
I ordered the South West Rump 300g $21.95. The steak was cooked well with a perfect pink stripe through the middle but it did have a bit of grizzle down one side which was disappointing. The chips were crunchy and the peppercorn sauce was a little runny.
My hubby ordered the Chicken Parmigiana $23.95. It was a large serve of juicy chicken that had been char grilled then wood roasted, covered in typical napolitana sauce, smothered in mozzarella cheese and served with chips. It was disappointingly a little watery under the chicken but overall my hubby said it was ok.
To be fair I feel Junction Grill is still finding its feet as it has only just opened. Although we wouldn’t dine there again, I can see that it would definitely be popular with those looking for a filling meal without having to leave the casino gaming floor.
