The food wasn't authentic it seemed precooked and they used frozen vegetables. The meat was ridiculously chewy. The owner ate a piece of our food just to argue that it wasn't chewy and that was how it was meant to be. The drinks took a...More

We went there as guests of a closing banquet for a convention. It wasn't a good choice for this event. The place was overcrowded, the chef (whom we know personally and he is a good chef)was extremely overworked. He had to prepare 180 -or so...More

The calamari dish we ordered was fine. Just before the food arrived the noise in the restaurant, which had been very high because of loud customers, took a turn for the worse. The manager used a loudspeaker turned to maximum power to lead the entertainment...More

We were there for a banquet for a work Xmas party. Whilst people had fun - that was due to drinking and dancing. The food was poor in value (there wasn't enough food) and unfortunately the quality was poor to average.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
