I've been to cookie a few times before at different times, but never for dinner on a Friday night. It was extremly packed and very loud but I kinda liked it. It made the atmostphere very vibrant and fun. The staff were excellent, the bartender had a good chat to us about our weekend away and where we should go... More

V tasty food but all the dishes we ordered were very spicy, even for 'mild' dishes. Needed some cucumber and yoghurt to cool down! Cool atmosphere and vast beer and wine menu! The Japanese ginger beer was really good. Coconut rice is a must.

Was there with a business partner and friends and it was simply nice. Modern Thai food which was delicious, a huge international wine list and lots of international beers on tab. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Only downside - this place is so busy and loud.

We visited Cookie on a saturday night, the place was buzzing and very busy. You wouldn't trade the vibe for any speedier service. We booked about a week in advance for 4 of us from 7-9. Great selection of beers and helpful unpretentious bar staff, ordered the Weihenstephan Pilsner - a rare find in Australia, one of my favourites from... More

Four of us when for dinner as a last minute decision - no booking, usually recommended. Place was busy but no problem getting a table for 4 in the bar. There's a small area with seats behind the bar. Window view sucks - overlooks bins in an alley way - but it's secluded, quiet and you can hear your companions.... More

Early Saturday evening last we went up the stairs to have a cocktail. This place is great, and it was good to get there before it got busy. Cocktails were a bit on the "weak" side, but presentation was good. We stayed for a bite to eat and were not disappointed. Loved all the kids books featured on some of... More
