Modern Australian | Surry Hills, Sydney / New South Wales

Poly is one of my favourite bars - it has a great cosmopolitan feel but isn't so noisy that you have to shout to be heard. The food is amazing, every ingredient treated with respect and a joy to the palete. The menu changes often enough to keep me returning regularly. Please never take the steak tartare (in any of the wonderful interactions) off the menu - its heaven! Friendly staff that are attentive but not in your face, reminded us that one diner had a food allergy by checking in. Wonderful wine recommendations and wine list. Thank you Poly for another great evening. More

Polish | Surry Hills, Sydney / New South Wales

Alchemy is a cosy, elegant, yet unpretentious place known for its choice of delicate and light meals from the traditional Polish cuisine. Restaurant is famous for its freshly-made traditional Polish dumplings (pierogi), goose, duck, polish borsch (barszcz czerwony) stuffed meat. Fresh flowers, tables covered by embroidered tablecloths, soft light and unobtrusive smooth jazz music create a very special atmosphere. After the sunset, soothing candle lights and romantic chandelier lights deepen the inimitable atmosphere of this place. Alchemy is more than a restaurant. It is an invitation to meet Polish cuisine-fine, intelligent, drawing on tradition, and at the same time served in contemporary setting. Alchemy may be called an embassy of Polish cuisine and Polish soul.More
