Nominated as one of the best burgers in Sydney and I have to totally agree. The Blame Canada was heaven in a bun. Our other meals were great - I love when a menu shows thought and creativity at an affordable price.

Quite crowded at lunch time, better to book upfront. Burgers are fantastic, the best I've tried in Sydney so far.

Went to this place with a friend of mine for lunch. It was the best dirty burger (dirty being the fact that it had so many calories) I’ve ever had. I had the Blame Canada burger which was simply amazing. The bun was nice and...More

The classic burger is all I expect from a good burger: juicy, full of flavour, medium done, and served real fast. It goes well with the local selection of craft beers the place has on offer. It's worth to order an aioli dip with your...More

Blame Canada is the best burger i have had around Sydney! Love the cheese sauce!! The fries are very thin and the seasoning is just delicious! Highly recommend it. Be ready to wait to get a table (this is the bad part).

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
