Description: 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.

From the moment we walked in we felt upset and not at eased. We were waved to where our table was. Our waiter couldn't smile less if you tried. She stomped around filling up the water and when she split it it was clearly our fault and not hers by the sighs and looks we received. As a table of... More

I had booked a table for 4 online via their website at least a week before the date. It was a special birthday celebration, and I also noted that in the comments of the online booking. When we arrived at the restaurant, they did not have the reservation at all. We were finally shown to a table upstairs, which I... More

Was here on Thursday night for a business dinner with a large group of approx 25, we were seated upstairs. Service was excellent, very quick with orders and keeping drinks full, this is a good place for a group so you can make as much noise as you want. The steaks are always good here, the entrees were a mostly... More

There are two restaurants with this name, with different owners - I have been to both, and I liked them both - but they are different experiences. This one, downtown on King Street, is much more a traditional steakhouse, low lighting, and very much about the food and drink. The other, in Wooloomoolloo is open with outside dining, and more...

We found this restaurant online at the last minute and booked for four. The table was ready on our arrival and service throughout the night was excellent. Meals worked out at AUD80 per head including a bottle of wine and some deserts and some desert wines. One of the steaks was slightly over-cooked but as soon as this was mentioned... More

This used to be one of my favourite steakhouses but no longer. My ($20 for three) scallops arrived cold and when I told the server she made no comment and no offer of a replacement. My steak was good but the chips tasted like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for some time. A request for some more... More

I have eaten at Kingsleys from time to time over the last 15 years and am pleased to see the standard has been maintained. I never deviate from starting with some damper, a strip sirloin or fillet with baked potato and maybe a sticky dessert. Our steaks were excellent and also a small pan of garlic prawns. One of our...

Have eaten here four times over the last month but this will be our last visit. T- bone steak was good but other meal very poor. Service wasn't good waiter unprofessional (not seen this person before) not once were we asked if food was ok. Coffee was served just luke warm. The bill was presented with a credit card surcharge...
