“Cosy hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

So close to cirqular quay, but hidden from the tourists is this lovely cosy den - perfect for local office workers for something different to the horrid food courts. A bit noisy and cramped for groups over 6 though.

“Should be number 1 on trip advisor !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Great service , great food. A little noisy when we went due to a large noisy group next to us. Had calamari entree which was amazing and then had lamb pie. Also delicious. Can't wait to go back when next in Sydney

“Fantastic - do not hesitate, if this is one of your choices to eat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

So four of us went to Selah. Booked online but then called to move to later in the evening - no problem.

First impressions were welcoming. FOH staff were friendly and efficient. Drinks arrived quickly and we weren't upsold on the water.

Food highlights for us were the Singapore style crab and linguine starter. It had the perfect balance of heat and flavor.

From the mains we tried the Wagyu beef pie was a hit.

I've tried several of the big name places in Sydney and in my opinion, this should be on that list. Sure, it may not have the views of some of the others but let the food and staff speak for themselves.

“Selah - a recommended restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

The wine from the Barossa area was excellent. The food was fresh and beautifully presented.
We thought it was fairly priced.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

I went to Selah a few times during my stay in Sydney! Their food was consistently tasty, service was amazing, and the wine list is extensive. I would definitely stop in there again on my next trip!
