expired Dimmi - 1/2 Price Food at Selected Restaurants Syd Melb Adelaide Brisbane Perth Canberra Selected Days in July

2080

Dimmi is running their half-price dining deals again at various restaurants (over 30 for Sydney) including some well-reviewed ones. You book for a slot for the offer without having to pay upfront, and you can cancel later if you can't make it. Note that half price is for food only, drinks are full price, and you can only book it for certain days (usually weekdays) and time slots. There is also a limited number of slots (30-40) per restaurant.

Note: Not all restaurants are offering 50% off entire food menu - several of them seem are specifying menu items/banquets that quality for the offer. Please read the offer on the restaurant page located above the dates. Your booking confirmation email will also tell you what the offer is for.

    Criniti in darling Harbour and Bavarian Bier Cafe in Chatswood and Sydney would recommend.

    Via della Spiga was okay but really convenient in North Sydney, its beside train station.

    Nice! Most of the Adelaide ones are normally way too expensive for me to eat at

    Are the discounts passed on to the restaurants or does Dimmi cop it? Whenever I go to restaurants that are offering massive discounts on behalf of an aggregator the staff are usually pretty pissed about the whole thing and are usually pretty surly and rude.

      They make you feel like you're robbing them in broad daylight, ruins the whole experience most of the time. The other half of the time, you can't find any staff that knows about the discounts.

      Hmm I have not experienced rudeness with Dimmi or voucher deals so far, but I tend to book early for timeslots that are earlier so the restaurant is not too busy when we turn up. Maybe they're less stressed at those times? Dunno.

      Half price food likely means your likely give half the regular tip.

        You tip, in Australia?

        • +9 votes

          Lots of places are trying to push it by having an extra (and awkward af) tip option when you a pay by card. STOP TRYING TO MAKE TIPPING HAPPEN.

          @chu-oh:
          Just ask them, do you want a tip?

          Tipping in Australia is one of the most cultural-cringy things ever.

        •  

          Really comes to the price of the meal and the venue, and the group your with

          Anything over $25 pp might get the coin change.

          Oh any charity box will get my 5c. How much it cost a charity to accept my donation is their problem.

      I haven't had that, for me the group buy deals get us that attitude.

      •  

        I understand that the restaurant have to pay the group buy companies a very large cut. I'm not sure what the percentage is, but at one stage some source on the internet said that Groupon US took 50%. I don't know what the situation is now for Australia, but if it was anything like that, the restaurant might only be getting 25% of the menu price. But then again I see many restaurants that keep running deals - so it's confusing as to why they would be unhappy with people utilising the deal, since they have made the business decision to do so.

    Highly recommendend Riley St garage

    •  

      I like this restaurant too but it never has discount lol

    •  

      It says 50% off dining, but I can also see it says 50%off the $90 dining banquet, so I'm assuming only that is part of the promotion? Was ready to go, but wifey is vegetarian so that's not going to work.

    Is 50% off the whole bill or just one person with Dimmi account ?

    As far as I know you can't use your Dimmi points voucher with these type of offers. Could anyone please confirm?

    South Wharf Meat Market - 34 left, if you are in Melbourne and like meat, this place rocks.

    Thanks OP! Booked public dining room for dinner. I only go there when it's 50% off.

    Definitely recommend Delhi O' Delhi in Newtown. Delicious Indian food with very good service!

      Thanks I was thinking of booking here but wasn't sure of quality of food. I will book based on your review.

    Does anyone know whether I can use the 50% off + $20 Dimmi Rewards food voucher at the same time? =)

    •  

      Pretty sure you can't buy you should be able to pay with liven if applicable

      •  

        @drillvoice: Have you tried this? I made a booking with Dimmi and would love to pay with Liven! Obviously I'll ask - the worst they can say is no - but would love to know your experience.

        • +1 vote

          I haven't tried this but I think the key thing is that they apply the Dimmi discount and then say "your bill is X" where X is discounted. Then you could say "great thank you, can I pay with Liven?". Dimmi is for bookings, Liven is for payments, so in theory you are laughing.

        •  

          @drillvoice: Ahhhh - true! I will give it a try then :D

    My friend's a food blogger and we'd recommend Firechief, Meat Market, Bangpop. :)

    Thanks OP we just booked 8-10 places.

    Is it just me, or has their site been ozbargain'd? Suuuper slow

    don't forget to try combining with 20% off Good Food Gift Cards at Woolworths or 25% Liven Cashback :)

    what about the entertainment app?

    • +2 votes

      Don't think so. From the rules:

      Not valid with other third-party offers
      Entertainment™ offers are exclusive and may not be combined with other third-party discount programs.

      And from Dimmi:

      Get 50% off your food bill! Kindly note, this offer is not valid in conjunction with any other offers.

    I've noticed that the list of restaurants for Sydney keeps changing daily. Today Bather's Pavillion and a few others were added that weren't there before. So it's worth checking again.

    •  

      their special isn't available Monday/Tuesday - for participating places check Wednesday lunch and dinner as all have it that day afaik :)

      •  

        Ah yeah that would explain some of them. And yet a restaurant I booked on Monday didn't turn up on the list on Wed, even though the special was available Wednesday too. Perhaps it also has something to do with the default selection tag which was 'popular'.

  •  

    Is Bavarian Bier Cafe still offering 50% discount? It doesn't have the 'star' tag it used to have.

    •  

      There are quite a few branches, which one were you after?

      Edit: The ones with the offer will have this under the dates:

      Want to dine at half price?
      Enjoy 50% off your food at this participating restaurant from 3 to 31 July 2017 as part of Dimmi's Half Price Dining! Limited availability, book your table now!

      Click on the BOOK NOW and you will be looking at dates that have the special.

      Edit 2: Looks like no more dates on the ones I checked.

    Thanks for the feedback, good to hear that a few people have had good experiences :) I love Dimmi half price deals since you can usually choose anything from the food menu (instead of a fixed menu on some voucher deals), and you don't have to pay upfront, so you can book ahead but still cancel should something happen.
