Description: Here at Tharens we just love to throw a great party! Every Saturday night we hold our Alice In Wonderland Themed Night, from a mysterious bookcase to an array of silly hats, wigs and feather boas accompanied by a musical journey that takes you through the 60s, 70s and 80s which climaxes the night dancing to classic songs, we will ensure your special night filled with lasting memories At Tharens we cater for ANY special occasion, from hens, birthday to corporate events, the diversity of customers is amazing, and the fact that they all dance and party the night away makes this venue one of Sydney's best. The Tharens theme night is available on Saturday however we can hold parties all throughout the week depending on the size of your booking. The restaurant is open Tuesday - Friday serving contemporary A La Carte Italian cuisine from 5pm-10pm. Due to popularity the themed nights are reservation only and we do recommend to avoid disappointment to book as far in advance as possible.

Was part of a group of 20. The package gained through groupon was a 3 course meal which included an alcoholic beverage for a total of $15 per head, which represented excellent value. The upsides was that the service was efficient, the food was served in generous portions and the abbreviated entertainment by the transvestite was welcome. The downsides was that the place was extremely crowded with the seating extremely close and a potential fire hazard. Also all patrons had to make trips to the bar to buy drinks which in a crowded place is very inconvenient.
For the price we paid, it was a bargain but paying the retail price would have me thinking twice

This place is just plain ordinary. The food was very average. Two courses for $79.00
The entertainment was lame at best. The menu had 2008 bottle of Wirra Wirra and we were supplied 2011. Steer away from it would be my suggestion.

We waited almost 2 hours between ordering our meals and eating it, and even then most of us didn't get what we ordered, and most of what we did get was bland, over-cooked rubbish. Drinks were too expensive and the waitress got angry when we asked for bread for the mussels, even though it said we should get some on the menu!

The staff kept saying "there's nothing we can do, we're just really busy" as if that was some sort of excuse or apology. Book less customers, hire better chefs. Easy.

To top it all off we never even saw a magician or tranny. Frankly this place is a really bad joke.
