I went with my Mum and Dad (who are elderly) for lunch to this restaurant and although we do not live in the area it was worth the trip. The restaurant was packed and it had a great vive. The food was delicious specially their pork belly and pesto bbq chicken. Their salads were also great and innovative combining well... More

Celebrated my 30th birthday with a long lunch in the Gallery area - absolutely delicious fresh and seasonal shared food platters ranging from beetroot and soya bean salads, smoky roasted capsicums and chicken, to excellent coffee and pastries to finish. Service was also impeccable and friendly and they even entertained an additional dessert bought outside of KBM. Highly recommended and... More

Quick pop in lunch with the family (2adults, 3 kids).... Parking was tricky but the associated car park suddenly emptied which was useful! Walked in to see a long queue but it only take 8-10 mins. We got a table quite easily , the place was pretty busy. Nice open space, nice atmosphere, situated in a warehouse type space sharing... More

I was surprised when my ex colleague took me to that place where on one side seems like an IKEA sort of corner and the opposite side was a crowded, full of life, restaurant with a very long queue of "happy to wait" customers. Although there are plenty of tables inside and outside, but the place was full so be... More

This restaurant is located at the end of an old warehouse which has been renovated but still with plenty of the original exposed beams and building structure. It therefore provides a very rustic appearance and experience. You line up to order the food and then take it to one of the many tables many of which are communal. The food... More

Our son and his family took us to Kitchen by Mike for lunch. It was a great experience with delicious food - simple food with communal tables - a real sense of community in the place, lining up to order your food and take it back to your table. We had salads, amazing margarita pizza slices, and good coffee. Not... More

Made the trip from the cbd to Kitchen by Mike for a beautiful lunch, super choice of salads, I opted for the goats cheese quiche - yummy - large slices of amazing fresh wood fire baked bread with beautiful butter and freshly squeezed juices. Lovely communal tables and fun friendly service - well worth the trip.

What a fantastic place to eat, community feel and the food is incredible. As soon as you walk in you're greeted by a rustic warehouse atmosphere. It has a french cafe buffet feel! Did I say the that the food is fantastic! The prices are quite reasonable depending how full your plate becomes. You line up and are greeted by... More

I'm a local and come here often. I love the big breakfast, especially the eggs and vine tomatoes. The coffees are good too. It's always busy here but the line moves quickly enough. Once you order the food comes pretty quickly. The prices aren't cheap but I think it's pretty standard for inner Sydney. Lastly, the place has an airy... More
