Tappo Osteria – Pyrmont, Italian Restaurant Review


They always say that it’s not what you know, but who you know. While that’s not entirely true, friends and colleagues do come in handy when it comes to restaurant recommendations. As was the case when I asked a work colleague about some of her favourite Italian restaurants. Tappo Osteria was one of the restaurants she mentioned, which to my surprise … Continue Reading

Gumshara Ramen – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Gumshara Ramen

So if you talk to any one of my friends, they’ll tell you that I have a strange fascination with all things Italian. Mostly food, though it does extend beyond that!

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.

With large wooden panels adorning the exterior and plenty of modern dark furnishings inside, it was hard to walk past this restaurant when we were looking for a place to eat. The fact that it was incredibly busy at … Continue Reading

Darbar Fine Indian Cuisine – Glebe, Restaurant Review

Darbar - Fine Indian Cuisine

This is another restaurant that we just happened to stumble upon. Walking down the street at lunchtime, we noticed the slightly unusual exterior, which looks like a fortress (or an entrance to a cave). The interior is much the same, very dark but definitely suits the fortress theme. Kind of reminds me of an old Indian castle in the middle … Continue Reading

Park Hyatt Harbour Kitchen & Bar – Sydney, Restaurant Review

Park Hyatt Harbour Kitchen & Bar

Park Hyatt’s Harbour Kitchen & Bar is situated in The Rocks overlooking the absolutely stunning Circular Quay, with sweeping views of the Opera House and the Sydney CBD. On a bright sunny day, there is perhaps no other place in Sydney where you would rather be.
