This is possibly the most underrated jap restaurant. Although text atmosphere isn't the best, the food is great. Sashimi is fresh as the markets and the variety is also great. I always get the sashimi set deluxe and seaweed salad. Can never go wrong here!
I really like this place. Food is nice and always quick service. Its also nice that the staff and customers are from an array of different backgrounds. They should get licenced soon as its only byo at the moment which is a bit annoying and they should make the garlic plates a little bigger. I also love the complimentary bread and pickles they give at the start.
Went here on a recommendation and were lucky enough to get vouchers for a 7 course degustation. On arrival we were asked whether we wanted to sit at the bar or at the window. We missed out on the last corner seat facing out into the street, but managed to get a spot by the door. I'd read other reviews about customers feeling ripped off for being 'shafted' to this area, but it was a relatively mild night so it didn't matter too much. Hubby ended up being the door-man as people didn't quite know how to shut the door! Anyway, the courses came out and we were a bit doubtful about whether we'd be making a through a Maccas drive-through or not. Starters were pretty light on: cucumber & black fungi salad and steamed pork & prawn wontons (we only got two, hence the nervous scepticism). The beef short ribs on sesame leaves were san choy bow like and went down well with the house beer. The deep fried tofu and spatchcock were served with a modest amount of rice (both which were happily scoffed), followed by THE BEST caramelised beef ribs we had every eaten. They were so good that I let my hubby have one of my slices, to show him just how much I loved him. Seriously. The only let down on the plate was the gelato, which didn't seem to fit with the rest of the courses: it was a mix-mash of berries and had a strange, unpleasant after taste. Other than that, service was fantastic, ambiance was great and Head Chef Hamish proved, once again, why Bar H is a hatted restaurant.
ps make sure you visit the loo - there's an adorable framed photograph of Hamish and his sister as children.
Great little wine bar/ restaurant in Surry Hills. The menu has a great selection of modern Chinese/Asian dishes which are sublime. The food looks and tastes a little like Bill Kwong. They also do a good happy hour between 6-7pm where the cocktails are $10. They had a really great pomegranate cocktail. The only downside about this place is the table we were sitting at was a little wonky and made me paranoid I was going to spill something all night. Service is friendly and attentive.
A bunch of fresh fruits with different varieties in the box and some tiny floral on it with cute pink ribbon that surrounds, makes the person you gave feels so special. This is where my friend recommends me whenever I have only a minute for a party or in any special occasions.
Serving fresh hand-made pasta, A Tavola has always been the real deal. The long communal/pasta-making marble table in the Darlinghurst restaurant makes an appearance in the Bondi restaurant. You can't go past the stracciatella unless you're allergic to dairy. The wagyu beef pappardelle is another signature dish that is rich, decadent and all round amazing, but the seafood linguine is a sure way to my heart.
