We visited this restaurant while staying in the Novotel hotel, the breakfast buffet was a little hit and miss but still pretty yummy. But the evening meal was out of this world. We decide last minute to have dinner at the restaurant, the service was excellent and the food was cooked to perfection and yummy. I had the chicken tikka with a side of rice and it was really yummy.
We had our almost 2 year old wth us and they have her a colouring picture and crayons to keep her happy. The kids meals were reasonable priced and really yummy too

Me and my wife chose this restaurant as our last restaurant in sydney. We ordered gnocchi and rib. While we are eating, one of Korean chef named kibok came to us and talked about food. He was really polite and he told us the details about food. He also gave us some additional food for present of our travel. Our dinner was full of happiness. Interior was good vibe was great people working there were perfect!! I strongly recommend this restaurant!!

와이프와 이곳을 방문했는데 밥을 먹는중 기복 셰프님이 오셔서 이런저런 재미난 이야기를 했습니다. 또 셰프님이 서비스도 주셔서 정말 감사하고 행복한 시간이었습니다!! 인테리어나 분위기 정말 최고고 일하는 사람 모두 너무 친절하고 좋습니다!! 꼭 추천합니다!!

Loved it’I went with 5 family members on a Sunday night of the long weekend after reading great reviews online and this restaurant didn’t disappoint. We had some hiccups with one drink in particular taking a bit of time but Lachlan our waiter was fabulous! We wanted somewhere with a view and it has that, casual which we like but you could dress up and not feel out of place. Atmosphere was good and didnt feel like you were in a hotel. My sister had the Tikka Masala which I tried and it was mild and divine. I had the Penang Prawn curry which was also beautiful if you like a hit! My partner had the pork belly and it was cooked to perfection! The truffle aioli with the chips was to die for too haha ! We also all shared some entres and would recommend the prawns, the scallops and the squid! Overall great night, we were so full and believe for a waterfront restaurant it was great value for money. We would all return x

We decided to have dinner here on our first proper evening in Sydney and picked this purely because of other great reviews and I have to say we were definitely not disappointed!
The service, food, location, everything, was just brilliant and we couldn’t fault a thing!
I would recommend going after dark as the views from the restaurant and also walking around the harbour at night are breathtaking.

Just finished a really good meal at The Ternary. Don't be put off by it being part of the Novotel. Try the 'bugs ', lobster without the claws. If not the fillet steak was beautifully cooked and served.
