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.

An incredible dining experience for 6 of us, with ever dish standing on it's own. Each selection was flavourful and interesting and cannot be recommended enough.

Service was attentive, timely and most of all, warm.

Highly recommend the Burrata and the labne dishes.

Would happily recommend this to anyone.

KSK has been on our hit list for a while, and I don’t know why it has taken us so long to get there. All the dishes were excellent - vibrant, flavourful, beautifully presented. (I’m not a huge dessert person, but the kanafeh was to die for.) The service was warm and attentive. It’s a pretty small room, but with a great atmosphere. The final bill was excellent value for the quality (and amount!) of the food and service. Can’t wait to return.

Great food. We shared 4 superb small share plates and loved everyone of them. The service was efficient and very professional. I thought the wine list could be improved and it was very noisy but that would not stop me from returning.

We were asked to scrape our prawn heads onto another plate taken away by the waiter rather than be given new plates - seemed a bit odd.

Exceptionally flavourful and delicious food. Everything we ate had layers of flavour and imaginative combinations of ingredients, and the service was informal but enthusiastic and friendly.

Note that this is no longer a BYO restaurant. We turned up with our wine, only to be disappointed. Luckily there's an interesting wine list, and we opted for a delicious Portuguese Touriga Nacional, not something you see often in this part of the world.

Delicious Middle Eastern Food
we had a delcious meal at Kepos kitchen. The service was great. The food was generous portions, a menu with a difference and the food was tasty.
There were some unusual choices and I had a lamb which was tender and tasty. Beautiful experience.

My wife and I used to come here all the time when we lived nearby, so when we were in town for a weekend from London we made sure to drop by. Amazing flavours, spot on service (friendly and professional without being intrusive) and a short, sharp wine list full of interesting wines.

Highly recommended.

The first time we ate at Kepos Street Kitchen we sat in the front room. This time we were seated in the back. The noise level was such that we could not hear each other, which put a dampener on the entire evening for me. I was disappointed as we were introducing friends. If you do go ask for a table in the quieter front section (or outside if a beautiful evening).

The food is inventive and tasty, the service good, the wine a little over priced.

We had the tasting menu. We found the food quite tasty but too rich. We had
the tasting menu for $65. The tasting menu was much better at Nour for $69. This is a middle Eastern restaurant on Crown Street about 10 minutes away. The food at Nour was better quality and not overly rich like Kepos Kitchen. The service at Kepos was much better than usual and very friendly. The noise level was high but we could talk. Nour was much noisier and a reason not to go back on the weekend when it is packed.

Very delightful evening. The Food was very tasty. however there were no gluten free substitutes for the tuna tartare, I had to eat it off a spoon instead of a cracker that is served as the side. Most places cater for gf & I think they should have gluten free crackers On hand.

I went to Kepos Street Kitchen with a group of girlfriends and we had an amazing time. A few of our guests were late but the staff were amazing in checking in and helping us to organise our menu and rush out the food so that we still had plenty of time to eat before our sitting ended. The food was amazing and surprisingly affordable considering how fantastic it all was. High recommend! I will definitely going back.

The falafel with green tahini sauce was over cooked and dry so not great
The smoked labneh was very good and well presented
The burrata was mediocre and far less well executed in comparison with the labne
The scallops were simply presented but very good
The Mediterranean salad was fresh and well dressed
We had ordered sparkling mineral water but on more than one occasion our glasses were filled with tap water before we could indicate that we were having sparkling bottled water
Staff were pleasant and nice but the venue was very noisy making conversation difficult

Perfect for a date or to catch up with a friend over a glass of wine and some shared plates.

Heard many good things about Kepos and finally had dinner there the other night. Food was authentic, menu was varied and the servings were very generous. The highlight was having the Chef / Owner come to the table where we were lucky enough to have a chat. I thought it was lovely that he did so with most of the diners. Overall, Kepos is a lovely local restaurant with a relaxed feel and great food.
