Located at 29a King Street, halfway between Kent and Sussex Streets, Sydney in the heart of the CBD and housed in a former candle factory. Kingsleys transformed the site into a superb dining and entertainment space. From the intimate atmosphere of The Old Cigar Lounge (private dining room), to the spacious upper floors, its interior features exposed timber beams with cathedral ceilings. The extensive A-la-carte Menu boasts fresh produce with seasonal highlights from light entrees of seafood to a choice from 12 different grass and grain fed steaks… We also offer flexible Set Menus to ensure every dining experience is ambient and flavoursome.All Kingsleys steaks are bred and selected under the strictest guidelines. The result is export quality produce selected from the top 1% of Australian Beef. Taste the difference.

Steak delight

I have been visiting Kingleys for 20 years. It never disappoints and the quality of steak, the wide variety of steaks on offer, the service and ambiance all all perfect. I welcome the $39 set lunch menu including a glass of Church Block. Beware that you can easily run up a bill over $100 pp. In... read more

Have been here several times and I can say I have always enjoyed it. I love it. You receive the steak cooked the way you ask it to be cooked without the pretentious frowns because you have dared to utter the unforgivable "well done" and such a great range of sauces and sides. Steak is the business they are in... More

I attended a dinner here for about 60 people. There were plenty of staff so the food came out in good time and there was good attention to drinks throughout the night. Most people seemed to enjoy what they had (alternate serve). I particularly enjoyed the cheesecake dessert which had an amazing light texture.

Husband had a 400g rib and I had the 160g fillet. I normally only manage a couple of mouthfuls when eating steak as I find it quite heavy, but I ate every piece with no sharing. The steaks were cooked perfectly and we both had medium. The peppercorn and mushroom sauces were fresh and layered with flavour. Absolutely no processed... More

There were 13 of us who booked the room downstairs. It was an ambient setting with warm lighting, ample space...easily would get 20 people in and has a private bar which is very handy. Overall, the meals were great. I had a filet mignon, wrapped in bacon (around $41) with a side of green beans brocolini and shaved almonds (around... More

Another case of paying top top top (not a typo) dollar (because of the location) and getting average service and ordinary food. We sat outside. No lighting whatsoever apart for two small lamps placed on the table. We struggled to read the menu. Menu selection very limited. It took staff longer than the acceptable time to clear the cutlery and... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review us, we always appreciate people taking the time to pass on their feedback Could you let me know when you dined and if you made a reservation? Our outside area in ordinarily a non food service area unless specifically requested. It is primarily a smoking area. One of the reasons for this... More

I ate at Kingsleys' sister restaurant, Steersons on Darling Harbour, on a previous visit to Sydney and gave it a 3 blob score because I had a tough steak that had been incorrectly cooked and the service was inconsistent. In comparison I thought Kingsleys was much better. The setting can't compete with a view over the harbour but it is... More

I had a ribeye. While not being elite, it was good enough to make me want to return. However, the Bearnaise sauce was pretty dull. Too little estragon, but there was something with the taste I didn't like. And I'm generally not picky with Bearnaise. Service was good, and you pay for the food, not for the view, which I... More
