Food was delicious all round, particularly the tofu bao bun. Service was good, however it was very hard to get (they seem to be operating on skeleton staff). It's also rather noisy inside.

My wife however, the Spicy Chicken Burger was a touch on the Mild side of things. But overall a great little spot for a feed.

Staff not very attentive and had to keep calling them over to order. Menus are dirty and need to be replaced and need more air conditioning to make inside comfortable. Music very loud.
Meal was amazing.

We had the shared plates - snapper and slow cooked lamb for 4 of us. Extremely satisfying meal - very well cooked and presented. Enjoyed by us all.

The food was delicious! Highly recommend the squid, fish wings and prawns. Great value also. The service could do with a little more finessing.

Good food, excellent wait staff, an outdoor (lawn) setting for dinner with children who can graze and roam makes for a very happy dining experience in Darwin.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.

The food at Snapper Rocks Darwin was fabulous, especially the Thai oysters which were very fresh. Serve sizes generous even for the share plates. I wish I could go back again!

We had to ask for a drink thought they were not going to serve us. Then We were half way through dinner and we were asked to move because they had a bigger group and wanted our table I said no then they asked another group to move WTF

Nice ambiance. Food was nice but crocodile needed a different condiment such as a sweet chilly sauce. When asked if they had any sweet chilly they didn't. A bit sad for a restaurant not to have or be able to supply. Staff very nice.

Good service, food was really nice, probably one of the best feed I had in Darwin! Papaya salad could have been a little more flavoursome but otherwise everything was perfect.

Incredibly delicious, fresh seafood. Excellent prices. All of the staff were happy and helpful even though they were very busy. The girl on the bar is an absolute gun at her job. Such a great, relaxing place. Everyone should experience this place. We are going back again just before our flight out because it was so great.
