Steakhouse

A traditional steakhouse experience with a modern twist, Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse has all the sophistication of an established steakhouse yet its rustic charm gives it a funky edge on the rest. A veteran but a pioneer none the less, the oldest, wisest but coolest steakhouse on the Sydney block where the best steakhouse experiences happen.

    If I had got The food at the pub I would be very happy. Little disappointed. Overall good, but the mash potato was not the best I have ever had. It was hard and tasteless. Steaks were not rested long enough. We both had the 300gm ribeye - medium and we had blood on the plate. I would not rush back back overall pleasant.

    Getting the correct cooking duration is a basic for a good steakhouse, ordered medium rare, and was well overdone, ok for your local pub, not a $68 specialist steak house

    Staff were excellent. Could not fault the service. Food portion was just right and the steak was perfectly cooked. Tables are well placed - not too close together - making conversations easy without a lot of background noise. Would recommend.

    Awesome as always and Vicki and her staff are nothing more than supurb. The steaks are fantastic and if you are not a meet eater try the califlower steak, to die for. This is not to be missed if you are dining in Sydney CBD. Look for us we are there often.

    Enjoyable night, great service. 3 of us split the 650g ribeye. A minor quibble, the bearnaise was bland, lacking that tarragon tang, but the steak was excellent (cooked medium rare at our waiter's suggestion) and the sides were fine. Will be back.

    Dear Sir/Madam I would like to bring to your attention about  the experience I had in your king street restaurant tonight.  My wife and I booked for your resturant for today  friday the 20th of May 2022, at 6:45 pm. we arrived a little bit earlier than 6:45pm . our table was near the kitchen at ground floor .  We made our order as soon as we sat on the table .  our order was sour dough and olives for start  one Rib eye steake medium cooked for myself  and ond Rib eye steake medium well,  cooked for my wife ! plus one of each sides in the menue plus sparkling water.  The sparkling water and sour dough plus olives arrived which we finished it quite fast and we waited for the main order  to arrive .  We were waiting for almost 30 minutes after our entree,  but there was no News from our main till I asked the manager what is going on! as usual for last 2 years everything can be blamed on Covid situation and lack of staff which I dont need to argue about it.  Anyway the food arrived after almost 40 minutes , I asked the waiter  if the kitchen staff are in strike! The waiter said NO why? I said because we are waiting too long for our main , but also  we assumed because of my wife's order which was Steak  medium well,  it took longer than usual! However when we cut our stake we found out both steakes are nowhere near what we ordered. both steaks were somewhere around medium rare. I called the Manager and asked him if in his opinion my wife's steak is Medium well and mine is medium! He said in his opinion my steak is rare and my wife's steak is Medium rare! I said I will eat mine but please take my wife's steak and re cook it to medium well please.  In our surprise  the steak was still red in the middle after the second attempt and was at best assumptions medium.   I called the manager again and asked him the same question! If this steak is medium well,  in his opinion! He agreed that the steak is still not we ordered.  The manager was nice enough to sug

    Good service and delicious food! A little pricey but you know that going in. Could be a bit more generous with the basics at this price point - chip serving w/steak was small, 4 small bits of sourdough @ $2 a pop etc, but overall would definitely recommend. Good wine list and non-steak options too.

    We were celebrating a birthday and wanted a special venue for the occasion. The food was brilliant, the service was excellent. Only problem is finding the restaurant as it is set back off the street. Perhaps a sign on the footpath would help.

    We were running a bit late as we’re off to phantom of the opera - the meals served were and is possibly one of the best cooked steaks I have ever had - to have a 12 yo who normally won’t let me cook medium she even loved it - I recommend this restaurant - Nick out host for the night even gave us some of the no rain luck that he said he had got as it didn’t start raining till shows end . In a past life use to be a regular makes me remember why .

    One waitress and manager on service, repeated each other’s jobs. Ordered drinks from one, then the other would come and ask what drinks we wanted. Waitress knew absolutely nothing about the menu, kept us waiting to be seated for 5 minutes then we were sat at a table next to three people talking very loudly when the place was about a quarter full. Good was good, waitress messed up the order a little, and would absolutely not recommend nor go there again. Plenty of other specialist steakhouses that have effective staff.

    I have been here before and it was quite different this time. The first conversation was an apology for the lack of staff. once seated we ordered drinks, and then entrees... and before the entrees had arrived we were being pressured into ordering mains (this was a 7 pm booking so not late at all). Entrees were ok. A question mark over the weight of the "1kg" T bone - but by all accounts it was great. My steak was something I could have got at any pub - overcooked and a bit stringy. The dessert was good and overall the experience was not quite what I thought it would be. Would I go back? Maybe.
