The Groove Train just keeps rolling along, and it has finally arrived up in the Northern Territory. Just like The Ghan turns up in Darwin on a regular basis, the dishes that make up The Groove Train canon have tipped up at the top end of Australia, and in the Casuarina Square shopping centre to boot. Take a trip to the northern part of the city to try a menu that is known all over the Australian mainland, with a diversity of dishes that encapsulates the best multicultural traditions of the country, from Asian and European favourites to curries and vegetarian dishes. Park up at Trower Road for a dining destination in Darwin that is worth writing home about.
The good people of The Groove Train are bringing their unique take on Australian cooking to the streets of Darwin, with a menu that recreates the modern, multicultural Australia from morning to evening and at every point in between. If you arrive at Casuarina Square shopping mall on Trower Road in, well, Casuarina, you’ll be able to try woks and curries, healthy salads, steaks and pasta dishes, as well as plenty from their extensive wood-fired oven, with pizzas and calzones the standout. Visit them and find out what all the fuss is about: they’ve made Darwin their latest destination and they’re awaiting your arrival.
The Groove Train is all about diversity, and there are dishes on the menu at Casuarina Square that are as diverse as Darwin itself. From Italy come pasta and risotto – and pizza from the wood-fired oven – and chicken parmigiana, salt & pepper calamari and foccacia sandwiches, and from Asia come Chinese Hokkien noodles, Thai curries, satay chicken and nasi goreng from Indonesia. There are Australian favourites too: fish & chips, eggs and bacon, brekky burgers and more. You can find them easily in the Casuarina Square shopping centre on Trower Road – close to Charles Darwin University – and when you get there, bring your biggest appetite: this is one of the best Australian restaurants in Darwin, and you’re going to need to book in advance.
Highly recommended the groove train. We will definitely be back.
Thoroughly enjoyed the food and great customer service with a chilled vibe. It’s only the second time for dinner and we will definitely be back.
We booked and preordered online. Food came out once we all sat down. Really happy with service and the food was great! Will be back again soon
This was our first visit to the Groove Train and it was fantastic. Great service, delicious food and excellent value for money. The kids loved it too. Will certainly go back.
I ordered the chicken hokkien noodles dish. The dish itself was fine. I can understand that maybe some items are seasonal on the menu. But if a dish states items then they should be executed as the same. The dish only stated Asian greens. Which the meal had a abundance of carrot and cauliflower in it and had the greens of snow peas, one bok Choy root and garnished with spring onions and coriander (which I asked for no coriander). Also there were no sesame seeds with the meal. Glasses that were on the table were dirty (lipstick stains) and swapped for more dirty glasses. Other then the glasses the restaurant looked clean. The staff were friendly. The meals came out very quickly which was great. All in all was a good place to go for dinner.
The service, food and drinks was fantastic. Your Strawberry Smash Mocktails are simply delicious. All of our group enjoyed their meals .. only problem was they mixed up the Chicken Burgers .. one without bacon and one without tomato. Luckily we spotted it before food was bitten into.
When we arrived they immediately assist us in our reserve table. The crew are accommodating and attentive, service is fast and food is nice. Although they serve me the wrong food, instead of prawn chorizo linguine they gave me prawn chorizo risotto but in 3 mins they serve me the right food. The person who took my order was very apologetic. Overall highly recommended!
Great customer service every time. Have never been disappointed. Went last night for a birthday, staff bought out the cake and all sang "Happy Birthday to my daughter", it made her day. Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
It was OK. The food was good but not great. loved the starter share plate but then my main (chicken satay) was a little disappointing. My kids and husband enjoyed their meals sticking to pizza, calamari and pasta. The staff were very nice but seemed very busy taking over 15 min just for a glass of wine.
As they were very busy we had wait although once we were served entree soon followed. Friendly waiter offered to move us away from a big family group. Food was not as good as usual, fish of the day wa so recooked and chapmpotatoes underdone but the butter chicken was up to the usual standard.
