Heard so many good things about this place, wish I had gone before it changed hands, it’s nothing special at all! Very basic food, the bread was definitely not home made!

Overall very tasty. The menu seems a bit more limited vs. pre-COVID, but I'm sure that will change with time!

The service is excellent, really friendly wait staff made for an enjoyable meal. Loved the humus and fried cauliflower, garlic bread also good. Give the eggplant shush kebab and tomato salad a miss. Overall food was really too salty for our liking which was a shame.

Everything about our visit to Thievery was absolutely amazing and it has already been placed into our top 3 favourite restaurants in Sydney. The food is delicious, well priced and varied and the staff go above and beyond for everything, while still remaining chill and relaxed. We will be back again and again, and have already recommended to all of our friends and family.

The food was amazing. The baba ganoush was a stand out for us. The waiter was friendly and explained the menu without rushing. We had a great dining experience and will definitely return.

I had the set menu on Valentines Day and regretted it. Compared to other middle-eastern restaurants I've been to, the food was very average. The space is congested and overcrowded with loud 'club music' playing. Definitely not value for money! I would recommend 'Nour' in Surry Hills or 'Efendy' in Balmain over Thievery.

We went to Thievery for the Valentines day dinner, while the food was good, the service was a let down. We asked for the drinks menu twice and finally got it, then wanted to order a drink, and kept calling out to the servers and they kept saying one moment and never came. Understand that it was a busy night, but it also didn't leave a good lasting impression to encourage us to go back.

We didn't realise it would be a set menu and that our time was limited. The initial courses arrived one on top of the other and plates piled up. Then there was a lull and we were informed we had to leave in 5 minutes before dessert had arrived. An unpleasant and rushed dining experience. All the flavours merged into one with the rushed courses.

Food was very nice but the service was poor - we were not given our garlic bread, we were left to our own devices for much of the night (no wine top-ups, for example).

Host was very welcoming and the food was probably very good, however the waitress who served us was rude on every possible level such that we did not enjoy the meal at all. Brusque when recommending wine, rushed and impolite meal service, hasty table clearing, practically pushed us out the door. Unpleasant and upsetting. I regret leaving a tip and felt ripped off.

One of the worst experience i have had.
Very rude service. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
i had told my work colleagues about this place, came back and told them about the experience, they wouldn't be going there in a hurry!!!
RACHAEL is the worst in customer service!

We went here for our anniversary dinner with the hope to get interesting, unique and flavoursome food that didn't break the wallet! We had the vegetarian feast which was definitely worth it - Middle Eastern food with a yum cha twist. The service was incredible, they were polite, made us laugh and were so on top of it. If I had to comment on one minor thing, it'd be the timing of the dishes, some were slightly delayed, however, they did apologise without us commenting so understandibly it must've been a kitchen issue. With that being said, it was such a minor issue and the food and service were completely worth it - I would highly and proudly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience an edgy fine dining experience.

Set lunch menu could have been more generous. One square of tofu to share between 2 people? Come on! Was still left hungry afterwards so not worth the price. Come for the booze and order the chicken.

Amazing food, great service considering they were packed. The only disappointment would be, because there were only 2 of us we couldn’t have the 9 course degustation menu.... but it was still amazing

Lovely food prepared with care and imagination. we had vegetarian feast with added fried chicken bonus (a mistake that we didn’t have to pay for) a bit noisy I’m glad we went at lunch. Attentive pleasant service.
Will go again.

We arrived here to find the place a lot more relaxed/hip than we expected. This is a hip and trendy spot, with funky music. A young vibe for sure. The food is mostly vegetarian (not entirely) which is why we visited, and was yummy. The food is excellent, casual but full of flavour. Delicious. The service though was patchy and untrained. One staff member walked right by our table while I was waving to her, she was clearly somewhere else. Don't let that put you off though. The food is great with an interesting drinks menu. We'll be back.

After reading great reviews about thievery, we were so disappointed. When we arrived for my booking and it was like I interrupted their day! Sat us with menus (no water or drink order taken) where we sat for 20 minutes without seeing anyone again. Another table behind us was trying to order they didn't come back to them either. Can't comment on the food because we walked out, and not one word was said to us.
