What a find. Had a great table at the window overlooking Oxford Street to start. The food was the tastiest we have had in a while. Cauliflower is a must. I had the barramundi ( I don't normally like to eat fish out) it was perfect. The shawarma lamb was melt in your mouth good. My husband is still talking... More

My partner and I usually go to Embers for special occasions. The food is amazing and the service is great. The set up is modern and it has a great ambience. Their wine selection is exquisite and staff are always happy to help. Special shout out to Henry and Maria. Keep it up guys!!

The menu was interesting with lots of things that well described and imaginative. I was happy with all our starters from dip of the day which was Beetroot to the... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise on Oxford Street street in Sydney. We had the tasting menu, and it was fantastic. The cauliflower dish was our favorite. The beef cheeks were the best I've eaten. And I don't like lamb so was going to skip that course ... I was glad I did not ... some of the most flavorful... More

We stopped in, not knowing what to expect. What a surprise! We were pointed to, and HIGHLY recommend, one of their sampling menus. Ours was a 10 course feast of small-dish sharable Lebanese dishes, all delicious. Some amazing. Wow! Very eclectic interior, fun people, and some interesting wines. Yes, we loved it and have already tried to duplicate one of... More

This place is a real find & for lovers of sharing a real gem. Dined with a friend recently & decided to explore their small plates despite the appeal of several of the larger ones. Positioned as Lebanese this is not traditional Lebanese but rather a modern take using the wonderful ingredients & flavours associated with Lebanese cuisine, and led... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
