Eating in Sydney – Restaurant & Cafe Reviews

Restaurant 16 – Neutral Bay, Italian Restaurant Review

Restaurant 16 Neutral Bay Panfried Scallops

I worked in Neutral Bay back in the day so I used to know the area quite well. But boy has it changed over the past 6 years. There are only a handful of shops that I recognise from back then. One theme has held true over the years, though, and that’s the abundance of restaurants and cafe’s adorning Military … Continue Reading

Daikichi Ramen – Haymarket, Japanese Restaurant Review


One of things I love about Chinatown in Sydney’s CBD is the sheer number of restaurants available for you to dine at. No matter what night of the week, there is always something open. Where it gets tricky, though, is figuring out which restaurants are good and which ones to skip. And the best way to do that – apart … Continue Reading

Out of Africa – Manly, Moroccan Restaurant Review


There are quiet a few options available when one is contemplating dining out in Manly. Except, of course, if it is Easter Friday. So when we found out that our primary choice (Angel Restaurant in Queenscliff) was closed, a mate of mine suggested we visit Out of Africa instead. Since I had only eaten Moroccan cuisine perhaps twice in the … Continue Reading

Ciao, Hola, Bonjour, Hallo & ‘Allo – A Small Taste of Europe


Earlier this year I finally got the chance to take a much needed break from work and head over to Europe for a month-long vacation. It was a long time coming too, because I had been wanting to travel to Europe, and Italy in particular, for the better part of the last decade. Despite the cooler Winter temperatures, the trip … Continue Reading

Malacca Straits – Ultimo, Malaysian Restaurant Review


In the words of Natalie Tran… Hi! I know it’s been a while since I last posted a review, but in my defence, I was away on holidays for a month. So I thought why not get back on track by posting a quick short review of a restaurant I’ve visited a number of times, but never took the time … Continue Reading

Lotus – Potts Point, Restaurant Review

Crispy King Prawns, Chipotle Mayonnaise

With all the celebrations and excitement of bringing in the New Year, as well as the Christmas festivities before that, there is one thing that brings you back down to Earth. Quickly. And that’s your first week back at work. So after what has been the busiest last few months of my working life, it was really nice to finish off the … Continue Reading

Made in Italy – Pyrmont, Italian Restaurant Review

Spaghetti Marinara

Ciao. Please, sit down. I have a small confession to make. I am a massive fan of all things Italian. Cars, women, women, women and of course Italian food. Now although Italian women have always gotten me into trouble (oh the memories), I’m happy to say that Italian food has always put a smile on my face :) So when … Continue Reading

Nick’s Seafood – Darling Harbour, Restaurant Review

Blue Eye Cod Fillet

It had been a while since I had last visited Nick’s Seafood Restaurant in Darling Harbour. A full year in fact. Unlike Jordan’s Seafood Restaurant across the water, which has since closed down, Nick’s Seafood Restaurant is still just as busy as ever. Walking into restaurant you are very quickly engulfed by the buzz and chatter of a house full … Continue Reading

Sushi Rio – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Rio - Tuna Nigiri

Sushi Rio is located on the southern end of Sussex Street in the Sydney CBD. Positioned right on the corner at Liverpool Street, the restaurant is adorned with large glass window panes and prominent ‘SUSHI RIO’ signage sitting behind them. The fittings are a beautiful mix of dark granite, deep blacks, brushed aluminium, combined with a striking large chandelier that makes … Continue Reading

Chefs Gallery – Sydney CBD, Chinese Restaurant Review

Chefs Gallery - Prawn & Pork Wontons in Sichuan Spicy Soup

Chefs Gallery is a Chinese restaurant located just around the corner from KFC on George Street in Sydney’s CBD. Despite the stiff competition from The Colonel (HAH!), Chefs Gallery does really well by offering some beautiful Modern Chinese cuisines that not only taste good, but are visually appealing as well. Speaking of visual appeal, I have to admit that I loved the … Continue Reading
