A 2 hour interactive production set in a restaurant where the audience are the diners who enjoy a 3 course lunch or dinner.  Faulty Towers The Dining Experience debuted in Brisbane on April 24 1997.  Since then thousands of people have enjoyed the antics of Basil, Sybil and Manuel.  This is the 5-star critically acclaimed production constantly in demand throughout the Australia, Europe, United Kingdom, Ireland, Scandinavia, United Arab Emirates ...

Went for a dinner on 8th March 2020 and it was absolutely amazing. Can't remember when I had laughed that much. The characters delivered it so well and show has improvisation twist through out.

Be insulted and crack up!

The show was the best dining experience I've ever had, even if… well I'll let you discover on your own what mischief the characters got up to! Hilarious. If you're a fan of the show, you'll see elements from different episodes unfurling in front of you. The actors were tremendous, and had perfected their characterisation to the point where you actually believed they were Basil, Sybil, and Manuel. Their talent extended to ad-libbing and improvising by adding whatever came up during the show to their repartee. 10/10

Absolutely Hilarious

We went as a family group (all adults) to the Faulty Towers Dining Experience last night. All I can say is wow! What an hilarious evening out! The actors had their characters down perfectly and from the second the evening began right until the very end we didn’t stop laughing! There are no bad seats as the cast move around the dining room and interact with every table, the cast are brilliant at improvising with the guests. Take the advice given on entry to take extra drinks to your table as you won’t want to get up and miss anything going to the bar. A fantastic fun evening, we all absolutely loved it!

Generally very funny. A tad too slapstick. We had an explosive bottle of Prosecco which showered us (not part of the show and tedious to get replaced). A soup bowl was smashed at our table (not intentionally) creating broken crockery pieces along with soup dregs splashing over a jacket, shoes and trousers. On the plus side, the actors kept to their characters well, especially when mingling with their guests. We were lucky to have some German guests, which ’entitled’ Basil to perform brilliantly! We were a little disappointed not to see Polly or The Major, but understand why. The humour (excellent) and the slapstick would lead me to not recommend this show for very young children.

The show was fantastic, the only thing that let it down was the service of the bar staff at the interval as there was only one person on and he needed change in his till which led to a long wait and dinners would of been getting cold.

Basil made it right from the start. Great ad lib in between. Would have been good to have the odd cameo walk on/walk off role of Major or Polly thrown in the mix. Pays to know the series otherwise you wouldn't get it. Would go again. The venue had pillars which compromised the view. You need to be closer to the middle to get the full benefit

Very Funny and entertaining

From the moment you arrive the scene is set. The actors mingle with the crowd and it is not immediately obvious who they are (which is ideal). The seating of the customers is also very unorganised which is exactly as you would expect. The characters are very similar to the real people and their performances are second to none. There were 9 of us at our table and could not stop laughing throughout the meal. Would highly recommend this to every age group who are looking for a very entertaining evening. If you are fussy about good table food service from Basil, Sybil, Manuel and the other waiters staff this is not for you :-)
