An Australian friend took us to this place and it was really amazing!! After 40 min. we finally got a table and we ordered some nice burgers. They were delicious and we had a great time here. Definitely put this place on your bucket list while you're visiting Sydney!!
Had trouble finding the place at first. Really cool vibe inside. The service was so slow!
The wait staff said they were busier than normal for a Sunday, because we also ordered fried chicken that takes a little longer to cook. So in total we waited 40 mins for our food. Really good food if you have a hangover but I probably wouldn't come back here again. The food is too greasy for my liking.
so far I only have tried the piadinas and the pastries and I thought they were outstanding. really flavourful, not heavy for the stomach, fresh ingredients. a piadina is certainly enough for lunch and the price is right. excellent excellent staff, friendly and courteous, they always make you feel welcome. I am fairly new to Sydney, but I think this place compare very favorably to many establishments in that area, both in terms of food and service.
Oh my gosh I'm in love with Cre Asion all over again. I love the assortment of breakfast options - egg and ham or mushroom baked in puff pastry cases are clever and really tasty. It's not something you can't make yourself at home, but they just do it better. The house-made pork sausage rolls are divine, and dare I say, better than Bourke Street Bakery. They are huge, perfectly moist, herby, stuff with mushroom, and the pastry is light and crispy. I managed to get one fresh out of the oven this morning and I was in absolute pastry heaven. The bags of granola are great too, perfect for days when you need to smash a quick breakfast at your desk at work.
The coffee is a little weak and milky, I like mine with a lot of punch. Hasn't stopped me going back for breakfast though. Food prices are a little on the high side, but the baked goods are amazing and you get the sense that they are made with pride.
Personally i find this place a bit of a rip off. It is a small little coffee shop tucked away in the back street. I like my coffee mixed with honey and they weren't able to do it right for me, also it is slightly more expensive than most places in the city. The green tea cookie is delicious but not worth the $2.
They are very nice to deal with but the service does not make up for the rip off pricing.
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.
I must confess that this is my first yum cha at Kam Fook as I rarely have yum cha in Australia. Glad now that I've been.
The restaurant is of decent size with the usual Asian trimmings and I must say that although it was busy, this place isn't too noisy, no acoustic like many modern outfits.
The food is great; plenty of choices from steamed, fried to braised, they're all great. The waitresses are generally friendly and happy to assist.
One thing to note though, the waiters aren't all that eager to assist and only after a few attempts with different waiters did we receive the condiments we requested. It is true; it isn't an easy task to catch the attention of any waiter or, is it purely our luck that day? I shall find out when I dine at Kam Fook next time.
Despite the reluctant service and their prices not exactly affordable, I still will return for their food is fresh and good. Having a great company to dine with certainly helps!
I had my baby 5 weeks early via emergency c-section at the San and Dr. Des Cohen was the referred paediatrician. Dr. Cohen took great care of our little one and was on the phone with every large public hospital to secure our premmie daughter with a CPAP machine to help her breathe and develop her little lungs. Since then, the follow up care Dr. Cohen's given us in the hospital when she was in special care and after that as an outpatient has been great. We're so glad to have "found" a great paediatrician without having to look around for one.
His Hornsby practice is a little far from our home, but it's worth the trek.
Kind, professional, approachable. Really listens to both parent and child to get the whole picture. He also has a nice way with children and my son who is normally very shy really liked him. Highly recommended.
