Had the pineapple fried rice and it was the best I have ever had. It was a huge serving containing prawns, squid, raisins, cashew nuts, pineapple and had fluffy pork on the top. Absolutely divine and I will definitely be back for more!

Food and atmosphere was great. Can be challenging getting service as very busy during happy hour.

Riley St Garage

Woolloomooloo

Barbara dined on Sat, 9th Feb 2019 (5)

We had the $110pp set menu but luckily had the 50% discount offer otherwise I would have left feeling extremely ripped off. The food was great but there was just not enough of it. I have been to this restaurant 3 or 4 times before and the food was plentiful but this time it felt like we were sharing a meal meant for one person and ended up leaving hungry and having to get more food on the way home. We did inform our waiter who spoke with the manager who said the food was usually enough for 2 people and if we wanted more food we had to pay for it. Not likely after the piddly portions we had already received. Also, the restaurant was very cold and noisy. Originally we were seated right next to a table of about 14 guys so we asked to be moved. We were moved all of 3 tables away so it was still very noisy. Overall a very disappointing experience and I'm sad to say I will not be back.

Mekong

Chippendale

Barbara dined on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 (9)

We had the crab tacos, scallops, sweet corn rice cakes and betel leaf followed by sirloin beef curry and green papaya salad. The food and service was fantastic in a buzzy vibrant atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay

Glebe

Barbara dined on Sun, 3rd Feb 2019 (9)

What a lovely spot to enjoy a glass of wine coupled with beautiful fresh seafood. The waiters were very attentive also. Will definitely be back.

Cruise Bar

Circular Quay

Barbara dined on Sat, 2nd Feb 2019 (6)

Don't go to this place if you want service because you don't get any! We were seated right down the very end by the bar and as there was a cruise ship in, only had the side of a ship to look at so not a great atmosphere where we were. I did ask to be moved if another table became available but that didn't happen and when we left there were heaps of empty tables. I had to go and get side plates and napkins because we weren't given any. You have to order at the bar which is fine but when you are waiting there and one staff member is busy and another four are standing around chatting, it is frustrating. However, the scallops, curry puffs and chicken burger were all delicious. Unfortunately our experience was far from great.

At Bangkok

Haymarket

Barbara dined on Fri, 1st Feb 2019 (7)

We enjoyed the salmon dish which was very fresh and flavoursome. The mixed entree was a bit of a let down and the two mains we had were very average. The food came out very fast which is good if you're going to see a show. There are much better Thai restaurants out there and we probably wouldn't go back.

Kobe Jones Sydney

Fratelli Fresh Darling Harbour

Love the food and service here. Had Mar Hor and filled eggnet for starters followed by stuffed banana and caramelised pork hock for mains. All dishes were outstanding. The only negative is the wooden floor! Can feel people walking backwards and forwards all night.

Woolloomooloo

Barbara dined on Sun, 21st Oct 2018 (9)

The tuna tartare entree was delicious as was the lamb and beef mains albeit a little on the small side. Perhaps the mains could be served with some form of carb as there were no sides you could order. The glasses of wine were a little on the small side as well. However we had a lovely lunch and the service was friendly and attentive. Thanks

Hicksons Izakaya

Walsh Bay

Barbara dined on Sat, 1st Sep 2018 (7)

We had a nice lunch at Izakaya. Unfortunately the experience was dampened by a large group of loud young men at a nearby table so we left as soon as we had finished our food and drinks. The service of our drinks was on the slow side. The stand our dish was the spicy tuna sushi.

The happy hour deal is amazing. We enjoy popping in after work for a pizza and a few drinks. The only comment I would make is that it would to perhaps change the pizza selection every week or couple of weeks to mix it up a bit. Thanks

Had the truffle degustation. Our waitress was fantastic but the food was very average. Even at half price we didn’t feel it was good value. The tables were too close together so it was difficult to have a conversation. Wouldn’t bother going back.

Mekong

Chippendale

Barbara dined on Mon, 16th Jul 2018 (10)

What a dining experience! We started with the Mekong share plate and added the beef skewers and sweet corn rice cakes. All starters tasted amazing and were beautifully presented. We continued with the beef cheek curry and pork ribs for the mains. The dishes were full of flavour and were decent sized portions. This is Asian dining at its best and is my favourite restaurant. Luckily for us we were on a 50% off dining special so was great value for money.

Fratelli Fresh Darling Harbour

Sydney

Barbara dined on Sat, 14th Jul 2018 (9)

Wow, what a great experience. We had the 50% off set meal through Dimmi. We started off with the Antipasti Board which was huge and had a great selection of nibbles including zucchini flowers which are my absolute favourite. I had the mushroom and ricotta ravioli for a main and my husband had the 4 cheese pizza which were both fantastic. We could choose whatever we wanted for desert. My husband had chocolate cake and I had banoffee pie which was amazing. We were so full we could hardly walk. Well done FF, you have outdone yourselves and we will definitely be back!!

Eastside Bar + Grill

Chippendale

Barbara dined on Wed, 11th Jul 2018 (5)

Was really looking forward to a dining experience at Eastside but was disappointed. We were told mussels were large NZ mussels but what we got were so tiny that the fresh was only about 1cm. The pork was dry and no crackling and the waitress couldn’t even tell me how many mls there were in a glass or a carafe of wine. Would not bother going back.

Have really enjoyed the fish n chips here in the past but not that great this particular day unfortunately.

What great value. We got the $50 deal which included Edamame, 2 pork buns, 2 plates of dumplings and 4 drinks. With the Dimmi 50% off deal and the AMEX deal, the bill came to $35. The dumplings were yummy, the staff were attentive and we enjoyed the dimlit atmosphere. We definitely be back. Thanks

1877 Wine Bar

Pyrmont

Barbara dined on Fri, 27th Apr 2018 (7)

Lovely wines at reasonable prices. Olives and sourdough toast were great as was the cheese although we got 2 tiny slithers for $24 so glad we were on a 50% off deal. The pork liver pate however was not good. We also ordered the salumi thinking we were going to get a mix of meats but ended up with a whole plate of prosciutto so perhaps they could make it more clear on the menu. Overall a very enjoyable night out.

The banquet menu had changed recently which was a little disappointing as we were really looking forward to the menu we had seen on Dimmi including the Thermidor lobster spring rolls. All dishes were really good except the last two which were the chicken and what was meant to be pork belly but didn't taste like it, and the desert which neither of us ate it. The staff were very friendly and attentive which was very nice as we were sitting at the bar. Would recommend the chef revert to the original banquet menu.

Barbara dined on Fri, 6th Nov 2015 (1)

Don't bother going to 1896! It took over an hour and a half to get our entrees! The prawns were horrible and it was a small portion.. Then we had to wait another hour or so to get our mains. Everyone in the restaurant was getting agitated and the atmosphere was bad. The steak finally arrived and was actually quite good. Then we waited some more. I suggested to the waitress that they give us a free drink so she went and asked but the manager said no. We said we were not happy having to pay the full amount so we're offered free deserts. We were very tired by this time so got them to takeaway as only live around the corner. The pannacotta was the worst I have ever had.

The garlic bread was great, we had the four entrees to share and all of them were amazing. We then had the rib eye and sirloin steaks which were cooked to perfection and very tasty with the red wine jus. Unfortunately we were too full by that stage to have dessert. This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise as given the name, I was expecting a backpackers-type place which it certainly wasn't. I will definitely be returning!

Had the pan fried barramundi. Didn't taste very fresh and only came with a little bit of hollandaise sauce. Would have been a great atmosphere except the person that was sitting at the next table was talking so loud, my friend and I could hardly hear each other.

Great food, service and atmosphere as always. Highly recommended for the $15 steak or calamari deal!

The $15 squid and salad were devine. The waiter forgot our chips but when they arrived, they were nice too.

It was very busy at the Vault being a Friday and the staff informed us that it would be a 25 minute wait for food which was fine with us. The food came out a little quicker than 25 minutes and we all enjoyed our lunches. The nachos were huge!

Opia Cafe & Pizzeria

We had a reservation and 7 of us arrived at the cafe on time. The staff were slow to take our order. Just after our order had been placed, 1 more person arrived and we asked the staff if he could get a menu and order so his order could be placed with ours. He didn't get the menu for several minutes and placed his order straight away but still didn't receive his lunch until the rest of us had all finished ours. I ordered a prawn pizza. The late person also ordered the prawn pizza but his had heaps more prawns and other topping than mine. I think the food was overpriced, the steak in the steak sandwich was minute but the atmosphere was good and I think everyone enjoyed the experience generally.
