This is our go-to place for group birthday dinners. Very entertaining and great value. Food is great. The decor could do with updating, however it's not a focal point when you're engrossed in the 'show'. BYO alcohol with decent corkage rates.

I went searching for a bite in Paddington at 9.30pm and was delighted to find this Teppanyaki place still open. All the staff were so welcoming and full of suggestions. The show style bbq cooking is a feature and I loved watching the tender breast...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
