I stand by my comments and reviews. If I have said anything bad on Truelocal.com.au there is a good chance I have said it to the business directly face to face or by signed letter.
I hope all businesses read my reviews, and are worried about their online presessence and reply, again I standby every word.
I hope my posts are of use to locals and travellers. And not suprisingly I have been both :))

If you found a Killian in Ireland and rove down middle street wearing a green suit, at 12pm on a Wednesday, you couldn't get as more middle then this place. It's so middle of the road pub.
The staff do their job, the drinks are right on average for North Sydney (so a little expensive) and if I had to explain the food - middle of the road. Sure a little pricey, but normal for North Sydney.
The punters that drink here are also middle of the road (not in a bad way, as I can include myself here). Just that they aren't the high flyers, cocktail crowd or some young ladies starting their night off. Na, it's just middle of the road people having a quick catch up before they head home.
The food we tried was rather slow to come out, but that's okay as it was busy. Size and taste wise was rather expensive to be honest, but again that North Sydney.
I really only come here if work Colleagues make me, and when they do it's for the $10 burgers. Which include Pulled Pork, Beef, Chicken and I think there's two other burgers on the special menu for diner. All come with chips and aoli and are well worth the visit.
Drinks are reasonable for the area. Chivas and Coke for $9.50 ($4 cheaper than a nearby bar with a "Verandah") always seems to have room and a table, even on a Friday night, as it's not the best after works venue. A bit lowbrow I think for the North Sydney suits.
But I got no complaints, staff do their job and aren't out the back hitting on eachother or patrons, so you get your drinks in a timely fashion. No huge pokie room which is a good thing and an upstairs area, hence why there's always enough room. Though some drinks/specials available are not available at all bars which is weird.
Check this place out if in the area and feel unpretentious.
As atan7 points out this is a Prague speciality, though I believe it originates from Hungary and I found plenty of similar shops in Budapest.
So is Kurtosh authentic Hungarian pastries? Sadly it doesn't come close. I don't mind it at all - but I just find it over priced quantity wise. Great use of space and I like how they make the food in front of the customers - authentic style. But the finished product is too sweet - probably works in the Australian market place but not for me. The other cakes we tried, tasted like they have been there too long.
Yeah it's okay, but wouldn't be rushing there too soon.
