Anason

Barangaroo

Rea dined on Wed, 21st Nov 2018 (8)

Food was fresh, tasty and delicious. Great variety and good wine list with lots of options to order Turkish wines. The staff were fabulous and very attentive.

Nefeli Greek Restaurant

Newtown

Rea dined on Tue, 23rd Oct 2018 (8)

We had a lovely night at Nefeli for my daughters birthday celebration. The food was fresh,tasty and plentiful. The service was great and personalized. Its a noisy restaurant when filled with people which is great as it adds to the atmosphere. One suggestion would be to have background music playing when the restaurant isn’t as full. Otherwise, great restaurant and plenty of parking out the front. BYO is a bonus and we felt full but didnt waste any food due to the correct amount served for our party.

Hotel Saravana Bhavan

Croydon

Rea dined on Wed, 26th Sep 2018 (9)

As always, fantastic food and friendly service. The flavours are delicious and serves are generous. Only suggestion is to have some background music playing all the time to add to the atmosphere.

Hotel Saravana Bhavan

Croydon

Rea dined on Sun, 23rd Jul 2017 (9)

As always, a fabulous meal. The food is always fresh and the flavours are delicious. The only suggestion I would have is to change the music or at least turn it up, it was very quiet and felt a little 'church-like' due to the silence, even though there was some music on in the background.

Booth Street Bistro

Annandale

Rea dined on Fri, 10th Mar 2017 (8)

The food was very tasty and fresh. Small menu but appropriate choices for all food types. The service was a little hap-hazard in so far as the staff didn't appear to have specific tables to wait on and this looked disorganized. The decor is unfortunately looking a little dated...could do I with a repaint and freshening up.

Alegrias Spanish Tapas

Balmain

Rea dined on Tue, 22nd Nov 2016 (7)

We recently dined at Alegrias and were pre rely surprised by this Neighbourhood eatery. The service was a little hit and miss but it was ok as the food was delicious and it seemed to add to the ambience. We had the tapas menu with enough food to serve 6 of us. The only disappointment was the zucchini flowers which were deep fried in a thick batter, rather than the lighter batter you get elsewhere. Apart from that it was great that the wine list had predominantly Spanish wines and many temperinillo's to choose from. It's a great restaurant for groups and there were a few tables with couples and families as well.

INDU

Sydney CBD

Rea dined on Thu, 17th Nov 2016 (5)

We were very disappointed with our experience at Indu. The staff seemed very distracted and it was difficult to get their attention to refill water and order drinks and food. The restaurant was very busy and even though we were told by our waiter that he was our waiter for the evening, he had to be called over on a few occasions as he rushed past us. Others staff were removing plates and serving and it seemed that there was no order the the service. Upon receiving our bill we had a 10% surcharge added-for what-it wasn't a public holiday and....more rudely, a 10% credit card fee automatically added.....we paid by cash!!!! We will not be returning and have advised all and sundry of our experience.

Bamiyan Afghan Cuisine

Five Dock

Rea dined on Fri, 16th Sep 2016 (10)

As always Bamiyan didn't disappoint. Food and service were fantastic. We love coming back time and again.

Abhi's Indian Restaurant

North Strathfield

Rea dined on Fri, 29th Jul 2016 (9)

Wonderful fresh, flavoursome and tantalising food as always. Ab his never disappoints. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and plentiful. Highly recommend a visit.

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

Rea dined on Thu, 14th Jul 2016 (6)

Have been to Fratelli Fresh on 2 previous occasions and admits that this visit was not up to standard. It appears that with volume comes reduced service and taste. Many of us were disappointed with our meals which lacked flavour and imagination. Service was not a good, ie, had to ask for water, call waitress over to take orders etc. Will not be going back any time soon.

Bamiyan Afghan Cuisine

Five Dock

Rea dined on Wed, 13th Jul 2016 (9)

As always the food was delicious. Fresh, flavoursome and diverse. This is a neighbourhood gem and it never disappoints.

Fratelli Fresh Walsh Bay

Sydney CBD

Rea dined on Fri, 20th May 2016 (7)

Busy, loud and great atmosphere. Service was hit and miss. We had to ask for wine list and for someone to take our food order. Once we were seated the staff never gave us eye contact so therefore to was difficult to get their attention without putting up your hand, waving or calling out. We all enjoyed our meals, varying from pasta, gnocchi, salad and arancinis. The servings were good sizes and the wine list reasonable in variety. The only problem was being able to see the menus on the large blackboards especially if you weren't sitting near them.

Efendy

Balmain

Rea dined on Fri, 1st Apr 2016 (8)

Great local restaurant and always good food and service

Efendy

Balmain

Rea dined on Tue, 15th Dec 2015 (9)

Delicious food, great service and reasonable wine list. The eggplant dip, prawns and the lamb were standouts. We tried a Turkish Sauvignon Blanc and it was perfect with each dish. Ask th waiter to recommend the Turkish wine to match for you. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Aperitivo

Leichhardt

Rea dined on Sun, 13th Dec 2015 (8)

The food was fresh, tasty and a great variety of meals to choose from. The staff were excellent.

Abhi's Indian Restaurant

North Strathfield

Rea dined on Thu, 26th Nov 2015 (9)

Abhi's is one of the best Indian restaurants in Sydney. The food never disappoints. The flavours and ingredients are always excellent. The many different options allow you to taste the variety of spices in many dishes.

Delhi 'O' Delhi

Newtown

Alfie & Hetty

Glebe

Rea dined on Wed, 19th Nov 2014 (7)

The food was tasty and the portions were a good size, so you actually felt you got what you were paying for. We shared the entrees and there was ample for 4 people sharing 4 different plates. Our mains of salmon which was crispy skinned and well cooked, the beef burger, risotto and stripling steak were all flavoursome and filling. The risotto was a little on the salty side. The sides of beans and truffle mash were good accompaniments to our meals. The restaurant is a little noisy so we felt we had to yell at the poor waitresses. We originally booked a table for 4 outside. Upon arrival we were taken to our table which was separated by an umbrella and therefore not together. This was not conducive to a group of 4 and we asked to be moved which we were to a table inside. It would be nice if BYO was available. I definitely choose to go out more often to restaurants that are BYO and unfortunately we seem to be following in Melbourne's footsteps by having more and more restaurants removing their BYO options! Note to owners: Perhaps let groups know that the tables outside are all small and not placed together so they can make another choice!

Bamiyan Afghan Cuisine

Five Dock

Rea dined on Fri, 26th Sep 2014 (9)

Great food and fabulous service. Never disappointed. Highly recommended.

Chinta Ria

Sydney CBD

Rea dined on Mon, 28th Jul 2014 (6)

The atmosphere was loud and rushed. Definitely not the place to go for a birthday dinner for two. Food was average and not as good as some neighbourhood gems we have eaten at. You are definitely paying darling honour tourist and location prices. Would not be rushing back.

Bastille Dining and Terrace

Drummoyne

Rea dined on Fri, 11th Jul 2014 (6)

We were very disappointed with the food quality and choices. The lobster bisque was not what we expected and tasted like lobster shells has been boiled and then the stock coloured and presented as the bisque. The steaks were reasonable but no sauces offered in what is supposed to be a 'French' restaurant. The menu is mere words with no description on the menu or from the waiter as to each dish. The saving grace was the creme brûlée, consistency and flavour were excellent. We love supporting local businesses and were disappointed that this local did not live up to expectations. On a positive, the rear garden area was lovely and we thought under-utilised and advertised...would make a great wine bar with tapas style options and an alternative to the pub. We won't be back for a while.

Gatto Matto

Five Dock

Rea dined on Wed, 21st May 2014 (8)

The restaurant as not very full so our meals came out very quickly. Would have liked a little more time between meals. The wait star did not appear to be organised and crossed over each other a fair bit which caused confusion. Nice touch with I assume the owner coming to each table to see how we were. The soup could have had a little more liquid but the fish and lamb were tasty and tender. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

3 Weeds Restaurant

Rozelle

Rea dined on Sat, 17th May 2014 (9)

A wonderful dining experience from the food, and wine to the service. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals And the recommended wine. Highly recommend for a special occasion meal.

3 Weeds Restaurant

Rozelle

Rea dined on Wed, 18th Dec 2013 (9)

Delicious meals, reasonable sizes, lovely ambience and we could actually hear each other talking. Highly recommend for a special occasion and great meal.

Ladro TAP

Prahran

Rea dined on Sat, 8th Oct 2011 (8)

The service was great although the staff seemed a litle confused as to who was serving our table re food or beverages. We were greeted and seated and asked for our drinks preference and then another waiter also came over. We had to ask for someone to come and take our food order and then once again the waiters were attentive without really knowing whose responsibility it was. The food was fresh and tasty. The pizza light and easy as an entree and my partner thoroughly enjoyed his spatchcock and I my barrumundi and risotto which was very flavoursom. Overall an enjoyable evening and even the closeness of the table beside us did not seem to matter as the noise level allowed each table to be private at the same time.

Ladro TAP

Prahran

Rea dined on Sat, 14th May 2011 (8)

We had an enjoyable meal in a friendly, relaxed environment. The meals were very tasty and the pizzas, quality and light. The service was good, would have liked a cooler for the wine at the outset rather than having to ask for one after having to move it from the table so it didnt get warm under the heating.
