Food is incredible. Wait staff are so friendly and attentive. Everything is so clean and attention to detail is immaculate! I don’t eat lebanese food out much as I cook it at home, but this was such refreshing and delicious take on traditional recipes. Already planning my next trip back to get me some more of the chicken shawarma 😋! And my lychee cocktail was especially yummy! Thanks for such an enjoyable night! 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
