Great food, however too noisy & heaters were too bright & blasting on us all night..felt like we were in a tanning studio. Nice, friendly service but lacked ambience & comfort.

First time here - got the set menu. Everything was delicious, service was lovely and the seating was nicely placed so that you didn't feel like you were too close to other people who could hear all your private conversations.

They were welcoming and attentive from the start. The Golda experience menu was a journey of amazing tastes and highlights. Each dish was superb. I would highly recommend the chefs for their creative and knowledgeable approach to the menu. Our taste buds were singing.

Food was amazing. Service also great. Would go again to try more of the menu. Went ala carte as there were specials that sounded too delicious to pass up. The chef selected set menu sounded like a good value option too. Next time!

After much anticipation of finally being able to go out on a romantic birthday dinner, after 2 lockdowns... we wanted to choose a place that we were almost sure would not disappoint.
As it was a birthday, we wanted somewhere extra special so after a bit of research we settled on Golda.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely front of house manager, we were early for our 8.15 booking, but he was very accommodating and happy for us to wait inside.
It was an extremely loud and busy night... as it was a day after lockdown... so to be expected and great to see people out supporting hospitality.
The first disappointment started with our table location, we were our right at the back out of the way next to a door leading towards the adjoining hotel and toilet. This really spoilt our night as every 30 secs people would go out to the toilets, leave the door open and the breeze come in... it wasn't a great feeling too.. whilst trying to enjoy a meal and thinking of all these people going to the toilet... but hey.
We tried to move table but due to capacity... this was not possible.
The second disappointment was the time it took for cocktails to arrive... I understand it was busy.. but we waited about 30 mins and they eventually arrived after the food arrived.
Drinks were expensive, but we knew that before we booked... and to be honest... they were well made and unique, so compliments to the mixologist on this one.
Our waitress was great, she spent time going through the menu with us and ensured we were tracking well.throughout the night, without being too invasive... a really lovely person and we appreciated her attention.

The food

We opted for the $67 chef selection upon recommendation from our waitress.
The first round of small plates really got us excited. The hommus and fried cauliflower were exceptional. However, couldn't help but feel that 4 small florets of cauliflower was abit cheap.
We were looking forward to another round of small dishes, such as the cigar, chopped

Great meal and service but sitting out in the plastic covered area is not cutting it. Would be so much better if the area was permanently covered in. Otherwise a great night out. Ask for a table inside.

Food was amazing, modern Israeli cuisine yet still with traditional flavours. It took us back to Tel Aviv for a night. The calamari was divine, and the grilled savoy cabbage actually was the hero dish for me! My partner had the lamb kababs which he loved. Will definitely be back thank you.

golda is good. great to have modern israeli cuisine option. highlight was cauliflower for entree. very nice with hummus. Freekeh base of kofkas also very nice (could have been a dish on its own. barramundi looked incredible but was a little plain, despite butter and chickpea base. eggplant and lentils were a nice combo. pickled veggies at beginning as a palette cleaner also deserving of meal in their own right. very good experience but a little pricey with the feed me option.
