Zest Grill House, Rooty Hill

Zest Grill House in Rooty Hill seems to be really popular but I'm not really sure why.  I saw an epic line of 50 people waiting - I don't think it's worth waiting in line which we did for about 30 minutes before we ordered. Then it probably took another 30 minutes before the food was served.
