    The restaurant had cosy atmosphere and the staffs were friendly. The food was absolutely amazing I had a great dining experience there. The grilled octopus and pappardelle pasta in particular were very tasty.

    Fantasic fresh food combined with attentive (but not fussy) friendly service. They remembered the dietary requirements which was entered in the booking and gave suggestions that were suitable. Definitely will be return.

    Friends have been recommending Kindred to us for ages - finally we went - and I am glad we did. Food was all we were told it would be. Tasty and generous (maybe too generous) We will definitely be back - and spreading the word to any friends who have not yet been.

    I'm a regular at Kindred and it never disappoints. The homemade gelato is a standout. I also always order the stracciatella dish.

    Kindred is really well priced and generous with their servings. We visited on a friend's recommendation. Their pasta is nice but I wouldn't say it's the best. I would describe it as on the heavier end of pasta dishes. I'm in love with pasta so have been to many Italian restaurants in Sydney. Sagra is still my favourite for pasta and has some of the best pasta I've ever eaten and I've visited there multiple times over the past few years. However, Kindred and Sagra are priced quite differently and Kindred is more of a casual restaurant. I would recommend going to try them out.

    A bit pricy for what you get and not extremely flavoursome but good enough. The agnolotti was nice but kind of unremarkable in taste. The potato skins were way too salty.

    This was my second visit to kindred........ i love the food, healthy options that are tasty and have a twist. For example, the broccoli had a touch of anchovy that made it really different special. What staff were friendly and attentive..... i will be back to try the deserts...

    Restaurant too busy. Too much pasta on menu with little options for flexibility. Don’t why bread is not served as a welcome dish as they do in Italy.
