Since opening their first store in Petersham back in 2018, business partners Sami Karras and Ravi Singh have been providing a unique dining experience that removes the norms of regular dining and involves getting your hands dirty.

The last few years have been a wild journey, seeing them open their 17th store right after opening their Lake Macquarie venue in Charlestown.

Diners can get their hands on the brand’s range of different signature ‘Kajun’-style spice mixes that accompany fresh Aussie seafood, including pipis, whole fresh prawns, mussels, and blue swimmer crabs. 

In their five short years, Kickin’Inn has experienced rapid growth and has a vision of opening 100 restaurants by 2030. Where do you think you’ll see the next Kickin’Inn?
