    Owner pours unordered drinks at table and charges you for them. Contininually trys to upsell additional food. Servings are on small side for the price. Better value is available on Crown Street.

    Good food but probably a little pricey for the value. Must try the flavoured vodka!

    Good fun place, food is just great and the restaurant atmosphere is not the most modern and that suites the feel of this place just fine. Went before going to the footy at SFS. Easy walk from this address.

    Owners and staff are fantastic, all fluent Polish and English. They have a wide range of healthy options but I can’t resist the comfort food and the desserts are amazing.

About the restaurant

The foodie elixir of life Alchemy is a cosy and unpretentious slice of Europe in the heart of Surry Hills and features some of Sydney’s only Polish dishes. Along with heavenly homemade cakes and fresh coffee, Alchemy boasts a more substantial menu filled with European classics like beef stroganoff, veal scaloppine and traditional radziwill (pork tenderloin stuffed with spinach and cheese in pink pepper sauce). Brekkie features an impressive list of pancakes and Polish sausages while evenings become more elegant, with soft jazz music and soothing candlelight. Alchemy is more than a restaurant; it’s an invitation to connect with Polish cuisine and hospitality – an opportunity to enjoy the food of Eastern Europe in a setting that feels a bit like your grandma’s dinner table. Best dish: Polish-style goose
