Great food and atmosphere

Ideal for a quick pre-theatre meal. Great food, good atmosphere and good service. The restaurant is busy and was turning customers away - always a good sign.

We were lucky enough to be looked after by Michael, the owner. He took so much pride in the food, wine and service of his restaurant and with good reason. Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Everything we ordered was amazing but the fried cauliflower side dish was the best and could have happily just had a big bowl of... More

I've been here a few times recently and Coda need to be acknowledged and congratulated. The staff (are they always only men?) are knowledgeable, approachable and ready to help with food and wine. What I love is that we mention the one or two dishes we really must have and they take care of the rest - never too little,... More

This is my second time at this busy room. Atmospheric space that fills quickly. We sat at the bar as we couldn't score a table, but it was fine, with a view of the busy kitchen. I ordered three oysters, shucked to order; spectacular Syndeny rock oysters that were swimming in brine and juices. My vegetarian friend and I shared... More

Good feed. We stopped here for an early dinner on a night out without the kids. Remember to book in advance though as not easy to get a table as a walk in.

We have dined 3 times at Coda and each time we have enjoyed the whole experience. A great menu with lots of small dishes to start with - we loved the crispy fried prawn enclosed in a lightly battered betel leaf and the side salads were really refreshing. Service was great, suggesting how many serves might be right for us.... More

Stopped by Coda for a late unplanned dinner after a show. The food was absolutely stunning and the service was incredible! Would definitely go again.

Dismissive and aggressive staff at Coda. When I pointed out my comments about their hopeless and dysfunctional booking were not being listened to, I was told they weren't McDonalds and I wasn't welcome at Coda. The success of any business is foreshadowed in how well they deal with customer issues. Coda is a big fail. Seems like they have lost... More

A must experience for every foody! We were a group of 8 and enjoyed a long boozy lunch and the banquet menu! The food was lovely and the majority was served as individual portions so everyone had enough food and a got to taste a great range of flavours. The wine and cocktails were amazing and the waiter was very... More
