Nice place to eat

Had dinner with friends & ordered the banquet. Great selection of dishes combined with very good service. Restaurant has nice ambiance & is quiet considering its location. I will certainly eat here again.

Just returned from dinner at EMB for the very first time. I was impressed by the food, ambience and service. Well done to the handsome guy and pretty gal on duty this evening for looking after us and for being so friendly and accommodating! We ordered the banquet for 2 people, and it was plenty and delicious. Glad you forgot... More

The food was amazing, the wonderful staff so lovely and accommodating for our very large (18) group of dietarily diverse eaters and all carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, gluten intolerants and diabetics left very full and very happy- including one who is born and bred in Beirut (who was also very excited by the many genuine Lebanese beers on offer)!

We visited Embers Mezze Bar to share a meal with good friends! The place has a great ambience with big windows, candlelight and a relaxed feel. Henri and his staff were awesome. They looked after us and the food was superb. Each dish has a special and unique flavour and presentation was great. I would recommend Embers for 'banquet' with... More

What a fabulous gastronomic experience. Absolutely brilliant. The first few dishes were vegetarian. Having previously not been a lover of vegetarian food I find myself now a convert. I finished off with the slow cooked Beef Cheeks which was the most tender I remember having ever tasted. Love the décor and the relaxed atmosphere. Thanks again Elie and Henri, I’ll... More

Wow, what a find - the food was scrumptious all round but my favourites were the Halloumi Cheese, Cauliflower Salad with the bursts of Pomegranate and 8 Hour slowed cooked Beef Cheeks. The place had a real cozy vibe and good range of wines. I can't wait to go back and try some more dishes.

Visited Embers with friends that had seen a review on Sydney Weekender. We ordered the $65 banquet - what a treat! Delicious, original, authentic meals topped by a tahini brûlée to die for. Would definitely go back and take others. A real experience.

Went to embers after a rave review on Sydney weekender. Should have passed on this restaurant as dishes were small and bland, nothing like as described on the menu for example the pumpkin, tahini and falafel - basically roasted pumpkin and crumbs with a smear of sauce. Small dishes including a $30 "main" which was one beef cheek on a... More

During a business trip to Sydney and I came across this restaurant which was an easy stroll from my hotel. I ordered three entree size dishes which was ample. Haloumi cheese with Zaatar and honey. Beautiful Lamb kaftar in pastry. Delicious Char grilled octopus. Awesome 961 pale ale. Staff were friendly and knowledgable. Food was to die for. Each dish... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Darlinghurst
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.
