Spent the weekend with the girls going to shows and shopping and wanted dinner and cocktails - this place came recommended and didn't disappoint. It was very busy (saturday night) but we managed to secure a table pretty quickly but couldn't tab the cocktails which we had already ordered to the table so that was a bit annoying, but other...

Enjoyed drinks with friends and family. Wonderful atmosphere, vibrant and relaxing. Some people were enjoyng Thai food. For quiet conversation we moved on to a restaurant. I would recommend Cookie's for pre-dinner drinks.

Good old Cookie bar. We've been many times over the years and the food never fails. We had the stir fried pork belly with red curry - fantastic.

I have heard a lot about Cookie and walked past it many times, but have never gone. After a recommendation, we had dinner on Thursday night. The website said that there were no tables available, but after calling, we were able to book. The atmosphere is great. Very noisy, but not too noisy in the dining area. Generally, the food... More

We visited on a Thursday night and the place was packed, but the staff took time to look after us while we waited for a table and also recommended dishes to order. I love chilli and spicy food, but when the staff suggest 'mild',... More

If I wasn't with a friend who had eaten there before, I may have turned and walked out of the dark entry, but so glad I didn't. This quirky restaurant offers great share food packed with spice and zing. It's loud and crowded, but the staff are helpful and the food is good value. We definitely ordered too much food,... More
