We ordered some sushi to start. The mayo sauce was rather hot. The oysters were huge and in a delicious sauce. The pork belly is so soft and delightful. The stuffed calamari was too spicy & hot to eat. We reported it to the waiter...More

We enjoyed great late night ice-cream and pavlova, one of the nicest cappuccino in the 4 ways area. Restaurant staff are friendly a big plus.

We went for Friday evening dinner having not been back to the Throbbing Strawberry for a few years. The revamp is a big improvement, with good food at affordable prices. We will be back.

I like this place. It’s casual and has a wide variety on its menu. It’s not over the top price wise and is central in Douglasdale. Worth a visit if you are in the area!

The loud repetitive rave style music that hasn’t changed for three weeks spoils the ambiance despite my numerous protests over the past few weeks. But at last good news, Cassie has heard my protests and put in a new CD. Pity the management don’t have...More
