    I would recommend the restaurant. The service was excellent, food delicious and attractively presented. The portions were huge and we could not try very tempting desserts.

    The restaurant is run by a family and they certainly made us feel we were guests at their home, serving us the most delicious foods, drinks and deserts. We loved it and will certainly be back

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
