Families not to be put off by the attempt at appearing too upmarket with white tablecloths and dimmed atmosphere. We ordered all vegetarian options and all was delicious. Excellent service too. Would go back in a heartbeat.

My wife and I dined here on a quiet Wednesday night and thoroughly enjoyed the meals we got. I bought a groupon voucher and paid a little extra to get the fish meals and it was well worth it. The Tandoori chicken and Onion and Spinach Bhaji entrees were great starters and The Bengali Fish Curry and Prawn Jalfrazi was... More

Very disappointed on both services and food. Ordering from them on Menulog for the first time and provided additional information of the delivery address upon checkout. My address is on Street A but the entrance of the building is on Street B, I have never had issue with any other delivery place. 20 mins after the expected delivery time, I... More

Really strange - had loads of takeaways and they've ways been great. Slightly more expensive than others but you don't mind when the food is great. Bought a group on - really confusing booking, my name wasn't even taken etc. Confusion continued when we got there over the three starters - basically you don't get a choice. How it was... More

Worst dining experience ever!! My fiance and I bought a Groupon voucher for The Clove and were looking forward to trying it. (yes, we had a deal but we still had to pay for the voucher and it wasn't a cheap one!). We went there last night and the service was absolutely appalling. The staff were extremely arrogant and rude.... More

The food was very disappointing after we had our first and last meal there. We had a take-away mixed entree which was very ordinary. Then we had 3 different main meals and they were mostly sauce and very little protein or vegetables in all 3 dishes. They nearly all tasted the same. In addition, my husband was up most of... More

I believe that this is the Clove Indian Restaurant which has now moved to Beach Street, Coogee giving us one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. I have been on four occasions recently .. three times with a group of friends and once just with my husband and the food has been excellent every time. Obviously, the more... More

I ordered take away using an online coupon. The staff member who answered the phone was very polite and thorough in taking down the order which included entree, main, breads and dessert. My order was checked before I left the restaurant and double bagged. All the food was absolutely delicious. Fresh. Tasty. Filling. What a great way to sample the... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
