“Very very good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I have become a little tired of the Sydney restaurant scene. So many charge so much for so little, or cater for tourists with little care for ensuring guests return.

Not at Selah though. I had a thoroughly enjoyable meal there recently. Very nice food, excellent service and tremendous wine. Definitely and experience that left wanting to go back for more.

“expensive with average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

We must admit to being a little disappointed after reading the reviews ion trip advisor. The place has a nice atmosphere with good service and an expensive but good wine list. We had fillet steak which was cooked well but was nothing special and expensive at $38. The sticky date pudding was a disappointment after the good reviews. Sarah Lee?? The total bill for two was over $175 with tip. At that price one expects something really special on an international scale. Unfortunately this place doesn't provide it.

“Very enjoyable relaxed dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Our group of 10 or so had a lovely meal at this intimate little restaurant on Loftus St. The menu is well organised around a number of starters and mains, and there are good wines by the glass as well as craft beer options on the drinks list. I opted for the squid as an entree. Tasty, not too salty and with a crisp batter. My main was the beef dish. Cooked as ordered and a quality piece of meat. Service is attentive and professional, without being intrusive or pretentious. Recommended.
