We liked the delicious fresh and tasty ingredients available in this wholefood/vegan range. So nice to see this type of food available in food courts. They also offer various locations in Sydney CBD and suburbs. Our favourite was the lasagne but you could safely choose anything from the menu and be sure you would satisfy your tastebuds whilst doing your... More

Being a vegetarian, this was a saviour. Just next to my office, this was the cleanest vegetarian option for lunch-time.

Located in a very trendy, busy area of Sydney, it's fun to sit at a window table and people watch as you enjoy a healthy, vegan meal. The salad and lasagna were delicious! They could improve their selection of desserts.

We were in the Food on Five food court in the Westfield on Pitt St looking for something quick and easy for lunch when we stumbled on the Iku Wholefoods takeaway store The grilled chicken salad was amazing with the Protein Shake #5

Discovered the IKU takeaway food bar gem in the Sydney CBD on our xmas trip. Just loved the great quality, tasty fresh food. We stocked up on veggie cakes, wraps, goopy sticky rice desserts (yum) and a bottle of their own tahini dressing. Took them back to our hotel for breakfast and snacks, and the dressing has lasted well all... More

Iku is such an easy place to grab a hearty, bite to eat. Filled with lots of plant-based, vegan and vegetarian options, you can't go wrong. This is strictly a light-lunch place only with a limited menu. However, everything is healthy and filled with vegetables, rice, seaweeds and flavour. Whatever you do, make sure you get something with that tangy... More

The food was delicious, but Iku in Glebe is really just a take away joint, with a few bar stools. I had a great vegan laksa and a salad and rice balls, but felt rushed by the only member of staff who clearly wanted to shut up shop and get home, although it was only about 8pm on a Friday... More

This whole food café was a real surprise! Delicious food at a very reasonable price including free tea & water. For diners seeking a healthy & delicious option, I would certainly recommend iku whole food (there are other locations in and around Sydney). Friendly staff, appropriate décor, even a pigeon was a regular visitor! Unable to advise on specific dining... 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.
