I’ve always been a regular at Dooleys Bistro. And since they’ve introduced the $8 rump steak on Mondays and Tuesdays, I can now enjoy a quick bistro dinner at a great price. The kids meals are awesome too… at $8, you can choose from the fish and chips, nuggets and chips, spaghetti bolognaise, or the roast with vegies, and also get a free soft drink or juice, and ice-cream!

220gm Rump Steak
On Monday and Tuesdays, you can get the rump steak for only $8. It is served with vegies and mash, and your choice of sauce – diane, pepper, mushroom or gravy. Out of all the times I’ve had this, it has never been disappointing.

Dooleys Lidcombe Catholic Club - Bistro - thai chicken pie

Thai chicken pie…
The size of the pastry purely enticed me to order this… and I was later saddened that it tasted far from what I had imagined. But that’s OK, I forgive them… as long as my $8 rump steak isn’t taken off the menu!
