i have eaten at Almond Bar twice in the past two months & on both occasions it has been an excellent experience. The service is friendly & attentive, the ambience is great and food is simply sensational. Of particular note, are the calamari, the falafels (the best I've had), the heirloom tomato salad and the feta & mint dip. Highly... More

We had the pleasure of dining at the Almond Bar on a busy Friday evening. We were visiting Sydney and are off to Istanbul in May so, thought we'd try something Middle Eastern. We searched TA, as we mainly do and were not disappointed. We had the Chef's platter to sample dome variety. I'm not usually a big fan of... More

Once again Trip Advisor proves its reliability. We were a group of 4 visitors to Sydney staying nearby. We picked this restaurant because it was the closest restaurant to our hotel with a high rating on TA. Every dish we ordered was delicious, the service was great, and it is very reasonably priced. Yes it is noisy, but so are... More

There are many Middle Eastern restaurants in Sydney that serve truly excellent food, but Almond Bar stands out for its Syrian cuisine; the food is not just superlative but different from what is served in other restaurants of this kind. Furthermore, the wine list is far better than that of most top Middle Eastern restaurants, and the cocktails are good,... More

Service was fantastic, helpful and fast. ..but not so fast we felt rushed. Food was...well...we ate like hungry wolves and it was so freaking delicious we couldn't even... More

Great little restaurant with excellent quality middle eastern food. We've been to many middle eastern restaurants before & they all serve similar dishes. This restaurant has different dishes & the quality is excellent. A pity however that the restaurant is so small as it was crowded & noisy on the night we dined there. Nevertheless I still plan to return... More

Hadn't planned to visit here but the first restaurant we tried was full so we stumbled across Almond and are so glad we did. Everything was perfect, the hosting was great and very friendly, the food was delicious, could not ask for more. Would go back again and again if I was a local, loved it.

This small restaurant has a very pleasant ambience. There are 2 seatings, at 6pm and 9 PM. I suggest you choose the latter, so as you can take your time. There are plenty of Gluten Free options and they will oblige by making adjustments to make the dish GF. Four of us shared 2 dips, 2 mezes, 1 salad ,... More
