Riley St Garage


Jodie dined on Tue, 15th Jan 2019 (10)

Third time at Riley St Garage within 3 months. It’s something you’ll always want to go back for!! Food is delicious 😍 Literally nothing I can fault in the banquet when it came to the savoury dishes. Had the $110 banquet menu recently and everything was amazing. Better even, had it for half price during their special 🤤 everything on this menu is a must try! Dessert from the banquet however wasnt all that special - could be improved! The cheese cake was delish but the brownie didn’t have any of the decadent chocolate flavour that you’d expect a brownie to have. If you’re ordering al le carte, I highly recommend the Pork Knuckle, I can’t believe how good the sauce is! And if you love oysters, the Smokey Truffle soy is just perfect. All in all, this has become one of my fave places to dine and I guarantee that I’ll be back :)

Chefs Gallery Parramatta

Chefs Gallery is always a pleasant dining experience. The hand made spinach noodles are amazing and each dish is flavoursome. We were also surprised at how cheap the bill was for such a huge family feast! Definitely recommend going here in large groups as it gives you a chance to try a wider range of dishes.

Fujisaki was a gem located in beautiful Barangaroo. Great place to dine if you’re looking for something a little bit special without hurting the wallet too much. We had the $85 degustation and it was divine. Great ingredients, food was beautifully cooked and it was well worth the money. Wouldn’t recommend it to someone who doesn’t like raw food though! Although I’m sure they will be able to tailor the menu to suit your needs. The service was wonderful. Made us feel very welcome :) Everything on the menu was tasty tasty tasty but the stand out dish would have to be the 51 glacier toothfish! Flavours were delicious and it was cooked to perfection. The accompanying pickled chilli was perfect. Will absolutely return. Had a very pleasant experience at Fujisaki.

Kid Kyoto

Dining at Kid Kyoto was a true experience!! Japanese food with a twist and a grungy fun vibe. Flavour pairings were so unique yet delicious! Definitely worth a visit! Favourite dish of the night was the teriyaki beef tartare - so delicious! The kingfish ceviche with watermelon is must try for spice lovers!

Tokonoma Sydney

Sydney CBD

Jodie dined on Sat, 14th Oct 2017 (10)

Third time back at this treasure and it did not disappoint once again! Tokonoma's degustation menus are always on point - delicious and worth the cost. Came as a group of 7 and was seated in a semi private area in the restaurant. It was perfect for the occasion. Food is divine, price is reasonable and service is great here. What more could you ask for?

Sake Restaurant & Bar The Rocks

The Rocks

Jodie dined on Sun, 17th Sep 2017 (9)

A beautiful restaurant with an amazing vibe as soon as you step foot into the restaurant. Had the chef's new classics menu and the food was delicious, there were definitely some hits and misses but I would come back for majority of the food - especially the popcorn shrimp! YUM! I would also recommend upgrading to the Dragon egg dessert as it was delicious, and the sorbet selection was quite disappointing. Overall, this restaurant was the perfect location for my partner and I's anniversary dinner. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Gemelle Ristorante Italiano


Jodie dined on Sun, 20th Aug 2017 (8)

Gemelle is a hidden treasure in Liverpool. Amazing dining experience - everything we had was divine!! I loved the scampi gnocchi and the apple tart dessert. Delicious.

Tokonoma Sydney

Took my mum out to dinner for her birthday with my boyfriend and brother and was seriously impressed. We all had the tasting menu without any expectations at all and it was divine. If you're afraid that this tasting menu is not worth the money, it is!! Can easily pay more for the same/similar quality at restaurants with bigger names. Such a neighbourhood gem. This was my second time here and I will be back :-)

Tokonoma Sydney

Booked this restaurant without any expections at all and was blown away by the tasting menu!!! Tokonoma delivered a delicious tasting menu that was both satisfying and filling. Would definitely visit again!!! Must try the oysters and the selection of "snacks". Had a wonderful evening at Tokonoma.
