“Excellent food & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Dinner with friends, it has pleasant atmosphere, not too noisy so easy to chat. Good quality and tasty food, simple but good. Quite expensive but impeccable service. Highly recommended and would definitely return.

“SUPERB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We were first in on a Sunday evening, we were going to see Renee Geyer at the Opera House. We had been once before for a pre show meal, this time we managed 3 courses over 85 mins and the food was superb. I had roasted pumpkin risotto for entree - full of flavour and cooked to perfection, followed by the beef which was so tender and to top it off the Chocolate fondant desert which was amazingly good. The food came out at a nice pace, the serving size was just right, our water glasses were filled as soon as they were getting low. Thanks Selah for a great meal - followed by a fantastic show by Renee Geyer - we had a top night out.

“Selah - love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Second time at Selah and it was just as amazing as the first visit. This time we went for Friday lunch and the service could not be faulted;there was apparently a slight delay between our entree and main (honestly we didn't notice) but we were unexpectedly compensated with a complimentary salad & chips for the table. Completely satisfied we were then provided complimentary dessert yum!!

I would not hesitate to recommend Selah the food is amazing and the service enhances the overall experience.

“Good business lunch location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

I had a business lunch at Selah today for the first time and the experience was really good. The staff were very attentive and knew when to leave us alone for discussions which is a rare quality in wait staff !

On top of that the food - had the Dory- was exceptional and good proportions to make both of us leave pleasantly full and feeling as though te experience was real value for money. Will definitely try it again and hope it is a quiet day again or at least remains a hidden star.

Selah is very conveniently located just 2 minutes walk from Circular Quay and the sandstone building is very well fitted out and comfortable - it is definitely worth trying.

“Exactly What We Wanted and Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We were seeking an unpretentious local restaurant with good food and a good wine selection. We found that at Selah. Our server was helpful and attentive. Our steaks were cooked to order and tender. Though not a huge menu selection, everything we had was tasty and fairly priced for the area. We look forward to returning!
