Mediterranean
Taking its name from its location, Kepos Street Kitchen is situated in the inner Sydney suburb of Redfern and is chef Michael Rantissi’s first restaurant. The dishes served at Kepos Street Kitchen are designed to share so the diner can maximise their dining experience. Dishes have a Mediterranean influence with a modern Middle Eastern twist. This is food that Michael grew up with whilst learning to cook in his mother’s kitchen in Israel. The ingredients - all top quality and locally sourced - will be familiar, but the combinations are anything but. Kepos Street Kitchen has an interesting wine, beer and cocktail list, both locally and internationally sourced.

We really enjoyed our meal. The portion size was just right and the dishes tasted amazing. The swordfish skewers were the winner - cooked to perfection and served with a delicious sauce. We will be back.

Lovely space for a restaurant, we enjoyed the chef's selection for 5 people. There are many other interesting dishes beyond the Chef's selection. The service was fabulous.

Our waitress was amazing, she totally understands your menu. We loved her, she might be a kiwi. Waiter John doesn’t do much but faff around getting in the way.

We loved our dinner here. They were very accommodating to my wife's gluten free allergy and the food was amazing. Every flavor and dish was so so good. It is a quiet neighborhood spot with both inside and outside sitting. Highly recommend it for a normal night out or a special occasion.

Really yummy food, especially the hummus which was the best I've ever had. The burrata was also divine. The waiters and service were very good. BUT the noise level when the restaurant was full made conversation impossible AND once the crowd thinned out loud 70's disco music took over.

Kepos St Kitchen is a complete delight. The food is delicious and flavoursome and I love the share plate menu. Service is exceptional but not overbearing and all the staff are friendly and welcoming. Kepos St Kitchen is definitely one of my favourites.

The food quality isn't great this time. The beef wasn't as flavourful. The fish was drown by the sauce and garnishing. Too many tangy type of salad. We felt so rush by the waiter. Sorry, we were disappointed. Wont come back.

We enjoyed our breakfast with our family to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. We could not fault a thing. We appreciated their treats of cakes to celebrate which were a gift. Will definitely return. Kepos is consistently excellent.

After recently enjoying a lovely brunch at Kepos and Co. we went for dinner at Kepos Street Kitchen. Very creative cuisine made from exceptionally fresh and high quality ingredients. Great wine list too. We will definitely be back.

Had a group of 5 at dinner on the weekend at Kepos. Had high hopes as we are major fans of Kepos for breakfast/lunch. Food is tasty but didn't seem worth it. Value wasn't really there as one of their "larger" plates was grilled prawns ($33) but there were only 5 prawns on the dish which meant you needed a side to go with it. The thing that pushed me over to write this review is the staff were pushy with asking us to order more than what was requested multiple times.

Amazing modern Middle Eastern Cuisine. Such care and subtlety of flavours in each dish and great textures. We wanted to share our dishes so we could have a broad taste of the menu, the staff were great at assisting us in our choices. A great experience, so glad to find a restaurant that truly serves quality food at great prices with friendly welcoming service.

The food we had was lovely, I requested Lebanese Flat bread, to be told they did not have that,
only sourdough bread, I found that rather odd, being Middle Eastern, the waiter got quite annoyed at me challenging this, and said it was not necessarily Middle Eastern, having him saying that was laughable as their other Restaurant across the road in Danks Street Make it.
I feel it was more Middle Eastern, than sourdough offered!
When a Waiter agues with the patron, I feel, this lowers the tone of the Restaurant, and for that reason I did not rate it as highly as I probably would have
