At Bangkok


Benjamin dined on Fri, 21st Jun 2019 (8)

We booked using the fork's 30% off food deal and it was well worth it. Very tasty food (maybe a bit too salty for my liking) that's served quickly and without fuss. Can be a bit tricky to locate as it's inside a mall where the closest entry's on Campbell St and not George St. Try it out.

Via della Spiga

North Sydney

Benjamin dined on Mon, 17th Jun 2019 (6)

We had great expectations of this neighborhood restaurant but sadly we left feeling let down by our experience. Tasty food that was reasonably priced (even more reasonably priced given our thefork promo). The staff were absolutely run off their feet that night and they did their best given the (unexpected?) busy evening. Perhaps the most disappointing dish of the evening was the lasagne... the taste was there but the generosity was lacking compared to the other pasta dishes we had ordered. Might be worth trying out this restaurant on a less busy night.

Rangoon Colonial Club Restaurant

Crows Nest

Love this place. Great range of food that's cooked beautifully. The service is attentive without being intrusive and the wait staff are always polite. The wine list is a bit limited though, particularly the options by the glass.

Meat District Co.

Darling Harbour

Friendly service and a good range of food options. It's burgers with a view!

Muum Maam

Beautifully cooked food and polite service in the very popular Barangaroo restaurant precinct. The provision of blankets while seated outside in the cool was a nice touch.

Rockpool Bar & Grill

Sydney CBD

As usual a wonderful dining experience. Perfectly cooked steaks and a wonderful wine selection. Service is attentive, all staff are well presented and helpful. There was an unfortunate error with the bill which was rectified after we pointed it out.


Surry Hills

Had a great dinner with my partner and 2 friends. We sat outside which was a great idea as there was a large group seated inside making it quite noisy. Very attentive service and tasty food to share.


Sydney CBD

The food was perfectly cooked and well presented. Lovely al fresco dining atmosphere although the small space can make things feel rather crowded at this popular restaurant. Speaking of small our table for 2 couldn't accommodate all of our dishes and beverages as they were brought out increasing that sense of being crowded. While the service was efficient we didn't feel it was particularly personal or warm especially when we arrived and our maitre d' walked off to our table without indicating for us to follow. I had high expectations of this restaurant and staff given what I saw on SBS' The Chef's Line. All in all it was an alright experience with a price tag that was more reflective of the location rather than a wonderful meal.

A1 Canteen

Fantastic food and an interesting menu. We opted for the a la carte option (even though the buffet menu looked amazing) and chose small plates, main plates and desserts. Walked out full and satisfied. Wait staff were attentive without being intrusive.

Perfectly cooked food and attentive service. If you're sitting inside be prepared for a bit of noise.
