This restaurant doesn't take bookings, so either arrive early or be prepared to queue...either way it will be worthwhile. Flavours were really fresh & varied. Generous serves and incredibly good value. It's BYO...so get your drinks on your way.

We firstly had the roti which was interesting and had a small amount of curries to dip it in. We also had chicken satay. The satay sauce was too sweet but the chicken, though the pieces were tiny, they tasted delicious. We had the slow...More

What a revelation. The beef Rendang was so well cooked and flavorful. The Oyster omelette was absolutely superb. Great to see groups sharing and enjoying

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
