“Only place for hot food during lunch.”
Review of Desert Oaks Bistro

If you do not cook or did not pack any food during breakfast for lunch, this is about the only place for hot food during lunch time. Not much choices anyway and the mains are not cheap, my suggestion is to share a main between two people and if you are still hungry, go back to your unit and have cup noodles.

This was the lunch stop after Kings Canyon tour with AAT.

There are not a lot of options in the area and we were one of the first to order, and we went for the pizzas these were very good, but moderately expensive

I can only say stay away from the bistro. The only part of the meal that was good was my coffee !
My daughter's chips were over-cooked and as hard as rocks, the gravy was some weird looking runny concoction that may have been gravox, but hadn't been thickened.
We both ordered the works burger without the bun ( $26 each), which came with an ok side salad and very over-cooked chips. The menu said pineapple and beetroot but they were missing. The meat pattie and bacon were burnt, the egg and tomato ok. But overall, the meal was inedible.
So with both burgers, a chips and gravy, one coffee and one tea the total was $70.50 ! Very much a disappointment
Would highly recommend people not bother going there, and I'm sure if staying at resort you would only go once because you couldn't be silly enough to go back.

The food is microwave, the fish was said to be fresh but, we agree, it was a bit naif to expect that in the middle of the desert. The chef should just try a little harder...
