Located at 29a King Street, halfway between Kent and Sussex Streets, Sydney in the heart of the CBD and housed in a former candle factory. Kingsleys transformed the site into a superb dining and entertainment space. From the intimate atmosphere of The Old Cigar Lounge (private dining room), to the spacious upper floors, its interior features exposed timber beams with cathedral ceilings. The extensive A-la-carte Menu boasts fresh produce with seasonal highlights from light entrees of seafood to a choice from 12 different grass and grain fed steaks… We also offer flexible Set Menus to ensure every dining experience is ambient and flavoursome.All Kingsleys steaks are bred and selected under the strictest guidelines. The result is export quality produce selected from the top 1% of Australian Beef. Taste the difference.

Place was recommended as best steak you will ever had. Sadly my brother - who has a steak fetish said it was tough and far better steaks at any pub you care to nominate. Mine was fine, venue lovely. Such a shame

Kingsleys is all about the steak. Very warm venue, the staff are dedicated to preparation and delivery of the meat, no matter what the cut.

A mate and I went here on a Saturday night recently. We had headed into the city not sure where to get dinner and we are very glad that we found Kingsleys. The restaurant is a well appointed little steak house, beautiful interior with rooms on multiple levels. We had a damper to start with while we waited for our... More

One would expect more from a place featuring steaks and the price. The $45 fixed menu seemed like a good deal and the wine was ok. Then came the steak. It was overlooked despite following the definitions from the menu. The server was clueless as to the difference between medium and medium rare. He made quite a scene trying to... More

Four adults and two kids - six different meals and three desserts and all were fantastic! Please make reservations if you expect a table right away but if you don't, the meal is still worth the wait!

We went to a Christmas party recently. The specialty of this restaurant is steak. I ordered the rib eye and it was full of fat and sinew. I could not eat it. As it was a Christmas party I did not want to cause any embarrassment so I just left it. In my opinion very overrated, and you could get... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
