I really loved this place and am surprised it doesn't rate much higher in TA. I think the reason that is, is that it has developed into a local Bistro without too many visitors frequenting it. This is no mean feat for the heartland of Sydney dinning Surry Hills. Just note that there is another restaurant in the city called Bistrode CBD run by the chef's partner.
The restaurant is in a old shop front with marble topped tables and tiled floor and wall, it could have been an old butchers shop in a previous life. The place was half full on a Wednesday night and most of the crowd were well know to the single very professional waiter working the floor. The food is a mixture of european and asian but not mixed on the same plate, you had corned beef with potatoes or pork belly szechuan but no strange east meets west. Wine was a short but well thought out list with some exotics and by the glass were excellent, pre dinner martini was a highlight.
If you live in Sydney it would be a great local but if you are visiting a great place to eat like a local.
