“Would not eat agian”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

my wife and i ate prior to the circus, i got there best stake, it was tough and very chewy, it only came with chips for $30 odds dollars, i have had better for $10 at the local pub.
my with got the Peri Peri chicken, it to was very dry, the sauce well you can get better from your local supermarket, she to did not finish it. overall the place was nice the service was fair, it was overpriced for the small amount of food.
You would need to pick up your act if you wish to stay in business, and if you are going buy cheap cuts of meat, then you need to slow cook them prior to serving to aviod it being tough, the coupple next to us also left there meat after a bite or two as it was to chewy to eat.

“Dont bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Four of us ate at Ablaze before going to see Cirque du soliel. My brother and i shared a few tapas and my mum got the chargrilled chicken and my sister in law the barrumundi.

We were very disappointed in our meals, the price was high and the food lacked any care in presentation and was mediocre. My mothers chicken came out plonked on top of a plate of chips, no slad or garnish, you literally could have eaten the same thing at a take away shop for $8. The Barra wasnt too bad, enjoyable enough but again not great. the tapas was underwhelming the meat was overcooked, dry and not very tasty. I can say the sundried tomato croquettes were yummy but considering how much this meal cost us..we walked out feeling we did not have a great start to our night out.

“Tasty tapas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Decided to eat here as daughter was at The Hi Fi and I did not want to go back to the hotel and return again later in night. Chose Ablaze due to their children's menu choices. We only waited 5 minutes before being seated. We noted that the staff appeared a little overwhelmed and found out it was a kitchen fault, however we had no problems. Our tapas were excellent and a nice manageable size, the sangria was heaven. The price was fine for 3 of us. I would highly recommend Ablaze and will be returning on our next trip to Sydney.

“Better than most at the Entertainment Quarter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Have dined at most of the eateries when visiting Entertainment Quarter to catch a movie, football or comedy store. I like Ablaze best and went there again on the weekend prior to catching a movie. A couple of tapas for entree and mains left no room for desert. Good value allround.

“Great Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012 via mobile

Ate here with my wife prior to a concert at the Hordern Pavilion. Neither of us was too hungry but decided to have the Tapas as the selection sounded mouthwatering and varied. We were certainly not disappointed as each of the ample sized portions arrived promptly. Our selection of bread with baba ganoush and houmos was quickly followed by garlic mushrooms, meatballs, chilli prawns and chorizo and, whilst all were delicious the standouts were the houmos and garlic mushrooms. We found the four tapas dishes with bread/dips to start we're more than adequate for the two of us. Prices were reasonable considering the portion size and staff were attentive and friendly and we shall certainly dine here again when visiting the Moore Park area
