Atmoshpere is a little odd with the plastic cover across the restaurant, but food is pretty good. Pork is great in particular.

Fratelli Fresh Westfield Sydney

Sydney CBD

Sheldon dined on Tue, 11th Sep 2018 (6)

All together a pretty average experience. Had to ask a few times for drinks as waiters/bar staff seemingly kept forgetting. Pizza was a bit soggy when it came out - not sure if that's because it had been sitting for a while. Lamb ragu is really good though.

NOLA Smokehouse and Bar


Sheldon dined on Tue, 4th Sep 2018 (7)

Overall, quite a good dining experience. Brisket was delicious but a little light on the serve. Ribs were great and lamb was cooked well.

KOI Dessert Bar


Sheldon dined on Sun, 19th Aug 2018 (8)

It was a good experience to do the high tea. Standouts were the Mango Yuzu, Mushroom profiterole and the scones. Had a bit of sweetness overload by the end but that has to be expected!

Munich Brauhaus The Rocks

The Rocks

Sheldon dined on Tue, 14th Aug 2018 (8)

Very good value for the 50% off special. Share plates were delicious.

Ripples Milsons Point

Milsons Point

Sheldon dined on Tue, 31st Jul 2018 (8)

Good value for the 50% off special. Lamb was cooked perfectly.

Cafe Del Mar

Darling Harbour

Sheldon dined on Tue, 17th Jul 2018 (8)

Very good value for the Dimmi 50% off special. Rib eye steak cooked perfectly and was an exceptional cut. Would recommend for the 50% off but quite pricey at the full amount.



Sheldon dined on Sun, 24th Jun 2018 (8)

Great food and exceptional value with the Dimmi 50% off special. Servings are very generous and staff were wonderful.

Uncle Nguyen

Crows Nest

Sheldon dined on Tue, 8th May 2018 (7)

Nice atmosphere and decent food, definitely worth going during the 50% off special. We had: San choy bao - quite nice and sweeter than traditional SCB Pancake - sauce was nice but filling was a little bland Angus ribs - really nice and well cooked, sauce was a tiny bit too strong for my liking Coconut/Chilli Prawns - quite delicious!

Jpb Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Sheldon dined on Thu, 3rd May 2018 (5)

Ate there for the 50% off Dimmi special, probably wouldn't go at full price. Food was satisfactory but we were unfortunately forgotten about for a while which impacted our experience. Although we were given a complimentary drink as an apology which was a nice gesture.

Via della Spiga

North Sydney

Sheldon dined on Fri, 9th Mar 2018 (4)

Found the pasta a bit too rich for my liking and pizza was a bit doughy. Quite nice staff and looks like a genuine family restaurant.

Ormeggio at the Spit


Sheldon dined on Sat, 3rd Mar 2018 (5)

The food was okay without being fantastic, a few of this dishes were a little bland and packed a bit of punch. The cheese ravioli was the opposite, extremely rich and far too bitter.
