Grill'd - Looks Great, Taste - No Great Shakes

Quick Review: Restaurant? Grill’d at CBD World Square, 644 George Street, Sydney, NSW, Australia. What? Tuscan Delight Chicken Burger How Much? Australian $ 16.7 (12.5+3.5+.7) Fries?

It is tough for a Pakistani to come to terms with calling his restaurant Indian. Hence the name Woodlands International Restaurant. Of course, it is known as Woodlands Indian Restaurant anyway.
