I came back after 13 years and this place is still a total gem! Beautiful atmosphere, nice veg dinner + you can see a movie, go to a meditation & there is also an ashram down the street. Loved it!

We did a Groupon deal and got the Dinner and Movie. The buffet food tasted good on the night. My partner had stomach cramps and diarrhoea for 3 days after. So we are never going back there. The small cinema however was lovely.

FYI - there's parking nearby at the car wash &... More

Reserved a table for two + movie on a Saturday night, promptly forgot what time I booked for and had to call to confirm - very friendly and approachable staff, felt like instead friends!

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.
