Tasty Lunch

Flavor Downtown is a cozy restaurant just off Charlotte Street that’s made the best of a small venue. The menu has a nice variety of sandwiches, wraps, and pastas. The roast chicken, apricot and almond wrap is my favourite. Attentive and friendly service. Clean washroom.

Had fish and chips which as I had said above was very good. Very quick service. Had not had dinner(supper) there so don't know about it. Bit pricy for the Lunch... More

We eat here regularly. They have an amazing variety of gluten free items. The stuffed chicken is amazing. I love their gluten free cheesecake. The only thing we hate is the cheesecake is rarely cooked in the middle. Other than that everything is perfect foodwise. The staff isn't the most friendly but the food is worth the trip.

Seriously- flavor gets it right every single time. I could eat everything on the menu. My boyfriend and I eat at all three flavor locations much more than we probably should. Excellent staff at every one- actually we had one experience where the service wasn't so good and we were truly shocked, but brushed it off as the waitress being... More

I think that Flavor is a huge asset to the restaurant industry of Sydney. The food is to die for, fast and the wait staff is very pleasant. The three locations are very consistente in experience. I always leave Flavor so amazed with my meal.

Brought my family here for supper- all 12 of us absolutely loved our meal. On the higher end price wise but so worth every penny.

The warmed roast beef with chipotle mayo is heavenly. I have visited this restaurant several times over the course of the past year and the food has always been excellent.
