We ate at the Gateway branch around Circular Quay because it's not as busy there as compared to the Darling Harbour branch. We tried their ribs because they had a full rack for 45AUD offer, which was enticing because a full rack normally costs around 52AUD. We got two pork ribs(they have pork, beef and lamb) with a side of baked potato and sweet potato fries each. The ribs were really delicious, with mostly tender juicy lean meat and a little melt-in-your-mouth fat which came off the bone easily. The sauce the ribs were slathered and marinated in was sweet and slightly tangy and had a distinct flavour profile that made me want to lick it off my lips. Remember to eat the ribs with your bare hands, as the full experience is gotten by doing exactly that. The sides were also very tasty as the baked potato was soft and moist and went well with the sour cream paired with it. The sweet potato fries were thick and crispy and had just the right sweetness. We ordered a small side of garlic bread because my parents weren't quite full yet. The garlic bread was soft and generously spread with garlic butter. Overall a delicious and messy experience. Hurricane's Grill is quite a famous restaurant in Sydney so if you are visiting you should give this place a try.

My wife wanted to taste Australian lamb and it didn't disappoint. I ordered the half rack of pork bbq ribs. The lamb was tender and juicy. The pork ribs was great especially with beer.

The restaurant was famous with delicious ribs. I have been waiting for 30 minutes to get a table with nice darling harbor night view. The place and food was nice and recommended with pork ribs. (sorry to said that the BBQ chicken was not recommended when you choosing the menu.)

Went here on reading great reviews on Tripadvisor. But I wasn't as thrilled as other reviewers. There was no atmosphere, although staff were friendly and efficient. But my steak was a bit tough and sinewy, not expected when paying $35 for it! Husband was disappointed upon ordering a pretzel burger that they had no pretzel buns...We should have just all ordered ribs like almost everyone else did! It seemed like feeding time...people just chowing down on ribs. I think that anything other than ribs might be a bit disappointing. Sides were nice.

Food is always good at Hurricane's, I've found the standard to be pretty consistent regardless of the location. What really stood out at Circular Quay was the service! Absolute 5 star service that you'd expect at a gourmet restaurant. Food came out promptly and in generous servings. Hurricane's still hasn't dissapointed so will be going back.
