    We absolutely love the Sketch vibe! Whether it's a coffee after Pilates, brekky with the family, or a casual dinner with friends, Sketch is the perfect little perch to eat, drink, and watch the world go by. It's certainly a favourite with the locals, and what really makes this place special (aside from the bang-on tunes playlist and thoughtfully planned Craft Beer options) is the staff - they are even more delicious than the food, if that's even possible?! Everyone must experience the Bacon + Egg roll with Masala Relish in their lifetime, and the don't ever overlook the Gol Gappe...they are crunchy little flavour parcels of heavenly perfection!

    Great food, probably describe it as modern Indian, good service, friendly staff and an energetic vibe to the place made it a memorable experience which we would certainly plan to repeat. The beer and drink selection was a standout.

    Love the food and street vibe, but it is expensive. Great variety of craft beer and good wines selected are dear but offer differentiation from your normal suburban Indian, which this place is not.

    Great place. Went for breakfast. Coffee excellent and enjoyed the spicy scrambled eggs so much we returned for dinner. Had a delicious meal. Curries are fabulous and big beer selection as one would expect when the street signage promises 'Coffee, Craft Beer, Curry Bar". I really like the relaxed ambiance and the staff are enthusiastic and happy.
