The food here is an interesting intersection of creativity with its roots stemming from middle eastern flavours, they way they interpret and re-imagine this is amazingly good.

Cannot possibly say enough great things about Kepos & Co... the food is absolutely fantastic, the eggplant parmy is one of the yummiest things I have ever eaten. The staff are so lovely and attentive without being invasive... awesome location... so peaceful and relaxing.

The restaurant is a little tricky to find but nicely situated. We were well received and the staff were perfectly polite and helpful but missing some of the wow factor you might find at Kepos Street Kitchen across the road. Wine list was not particularly long but a good range and variety. Food was served hot and well timed. Overall a very pleasant experience but nothing to write home about.

One of my favourites but only if you sit outside. The owner is said ( by all the stalk we have ever asked) to be opposed to lowering the decibel levels of the music I side. The outside and not I the doorway where we wete last seated, is the only place where you can hear your companion.
Pity! as the food is really very interesting and tasty.

The review would have been higher as I was going there for a particular item on the menu I saw online. When I got there it was not longer available and should have been updated on the menu online. This detracted from my experience but the quality of the food was good. I would not recommend the cocktails however the wine list is decent.

Chef Michael is one of the most hospitable restaurateurs in Sydney. His staff is wonderful and the food is delicious! Highly recommend eating here or Kepos Street Kitchen (different menus), and treat yourself to one of his cookbooks. This is a "must experience" hidden gem of a restaurant!

A great meal. The restaurant gets noisy if you’re seated inside when it’s full (and there aren’t many soft furnishings to soak up the sound). We ordered a “medium” steak which seemed more like medium-rare (a bit of pink is fine, but this was almost completely pink-red through the middle). Overall though, great food and attentive wait staff. A bit annoying at their insistence that 6pm bookings be out by 8pm - if we are truly valued “guests” of their restaurant, they should treat us like valued guests. In future I’ll favour venues which don’t apply such time restrictions.

Great dinner for four with an outdoor table. The menu is small but offers choice and variety with many vegetarian options that are incredibly tasty (tasty enough to not miss meat). Never pass any opportunity to start your meal with the faithful fave, Warm Hummus with freshly baked bread. The hummus is made table-side by the wait staff and bread is wood-oven hot, delicious and moreish but be warned, don’t overdo the hummus & bread so you can’t enjoy the rest of the menu.

All dishes selected were delicious with stand outs Crispy Lamb Belly, Fig & Halloumi with Walnuts, Roasted Baby Carrots, Shaved Brussel Sprouts, Seared Yellow Fin Tuna & finally Lamb Shoulder.

A cheeky dessert of Halva Mousse was amazing and shared but instantly devoured.

Notes... The noise of all tables/diners is challenging and makes conversation difficult but is not a deal breaker (outdoor tables away from the dining room are slightly better). Make a booking for groups larger than 4 and if you prefer an outdoor table.

Overall it was a good experience. The food was generous, interesting presentation and delicious.
I’m adverse to waste and taking more packaging. Would have loved to have known I should bring my own box to takeaway what I could not finish.
Table too small and cramped for comfort, and was sticky and tacky. Not sure if that was food or the varnish. These minor things don’t detract from this place getting better and better.

Some dishes were more successful than others... the eggplant dip, bread, lamb belly and roast cauliflower were all divine. But the brussels sprout salad was way too salty, and the ceviche was completely overwhelmed by the sauce. The smoked trout salad was the absolute winner - could eat that any day of the week.

Excellent ambiance, great service and the cuisine very interesting with a distinct mid east/mediterranean theme. Dishes are to be shared, the flavours are very vibrant, and the decor is very pleasing. It was a little loud at our end, but only because people were enjoying themselves. Looking to go back again for a dinner sitting.

Was initially disappointed as it was very noisy with a large group. My introvert husband looked panic stricken when we arrived for our date night! However, the staff moved us to a quiet outside table as soon as it vacated and were very attentive. Food is hearty and flavourful. Outdoor setting is lovely on a warm night.

This was recommended to us by a friend who’s been multiple times. The food was outstanding every dish was yummy! Service was great and the place has a fantastic atmosphere. Great any time of the year as they have outdoor tables as well as cosy indoor ones. A perfect date night as well as a fantastic group restaurant with the sharing style plates. A hidden gem

we always have an enjoyable experience at Kepos & Co, the food and wine are excellent, service is great, if there is only one complaint, it would be the noise is too much sitting indoors for elderly diners who wear hearing aids. So we usually opt for the courtyard and it is fine.

This little gem of a restaurant is right next door so I wandered over with flatmate in tow. Service was good as the place was busy bit in and outside.
The food was tasty & as a vegan there were some options. The flatbread was delicious as was the mixer at table hummous. I ordered two sides & my flatmate had the snapper & fries! The chips were excellent.
Another highlight the tea selection. I loved my earl grey. Not inexpensive but certainly plenty of food for your buck. Even enough to take away!

We had a great evening, the staff did a lot to cater to my friend who was on a gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian diet. Everything was explained beautifully so there was no danger of cross contamination at all.

It's our favourite restaurant, and we always have good meals there.
