Our restaurant & workshop share space, but more important are the views we share - that if we can make it ourselves, we will. That traditions guide but do not rule. Rising Sun Workshop does not support factory farming, what we buy in we buy local, from roasters, smokers, brewers, growers, winemakers & distillers who share our philosophies - our mates.

We’re here for your crazy & not so crazy dietaries, not all things are possible but with a little notice they might be.

    Service was slow as there were only two people serving all customers, but food was delicious and also had a very well prepared Negroni. Will definitely be back when I have enough time for a leisure meal.

    Ambience is great here. Unfortunately let down by the service, advised at the time of ordering that sandos weren’t available rather than from when we were seated. Unclear whether they’re going to make a comeback either. Service wasn’t great. Karaage chicken was quite tough. Gyoza was ok.

    Had a great night! I booked for 6 pax for my birthday and we had an extra person who the staff were able to accommodate. Food is absolutely amazing, drinks selection is superb. I recommend trying everything if you can - I’ll be coming back for repeat visits to get through the whole menu. The staff are lovely and their attention to customer service is top notch. The music choices are perfect and the vibe is vibin.

    Unfortunately, the service we received was really disappointing, from having to wave down someone to be served, items not being available and only being informed after we’d ordered, finishing my meal before my friend received their order, having to make multiple enquiries to the status of our drink order, to receiving luke-warm food. I felt embarrassed for having selected to dine here for lunch with a friend.
