They say: “where there’s smoke, there’s fire”. In the case of LP’s Quality Meats, there’s definitely a whole lot of hot stuff smoldering away behind sliding glass doors, down an otherwise quiet lane, tucked away in Sydney’s up and coming neighbourhood of Chippendale.

At the heart of LP’s Quality Meats pumps a Southern Pride Smoker shipped straight from Tennessee. This beast of a machine creates quality, smoked meats and treats under the watchful and masterful control of eponymous and renowned head-chef/owner, Luke Powell.

Although smoked and cured meats are the headline attractions, LP’s has something for everyone with an ever-changing menu of simple, made-from-scratch dishes designed to share with drinks from the exclusive and extensive drinks menu.

For a guaranteed good time with family and friends, just following the smoke signals down the lane ways of Chippendale to LP’s Quality Meats.

Private Dining

Whether celebrating a special occasion with family and friends or hosting a corporate event, LP's Quality Meats can accommodate all of your special event needs.

We booked for a relaxing dinner after arriving from Brisbane. Plane delayed and we arrived 10 minutes late at 8:55pm. Staff were very understanding and catered to everything we asked for. Food was again very tasty. I only wish there were more restaurants similar in Brisbane.

Restaurant was very disappointing. We were informed promptly after arrival at our booked table that 4 of 8 main dishes were no longer available. That is, half of the main course menu was not available despite a long standing booking being in place. This was an extremely disappointing experience and I would encourage anyone wishing to go not to get your hopes up beforehand.

We had a group of 6 and shared as much as we could. Everything was amazing from the local beer to the inported wines. Would go back in a hurry and recommend to friends!

We'll be coming back! 5 stars for food quality the smoked beef & smoked lamb ribs were so moist and flavorful! Caesar salad presented differently using whole Romaine lettuce leaves and finely grated cheese, very light and tasty. I only gave 4 stars for ambiance because it's not a fancy setting, with comfortable bench seating - but you're going there for the food, not ambiance. A bit out of the way, not in a trendy area but again you're not paying for that either. Well worth the 10-minute walk from Central station!

I had been here once before and knew that the food was amazing, but all of my other friends were dining here for the first time. I made some recommendations which they were initially a bit apprehensive about (e.g. some of them weren't fans of paté generally), but once the food came and they tried it, everything we ordered exceeded their expectations. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a standout dinner experience in Sydney!

We were a group of 7, and we ordered Sourdough and Croquettes for everyone, Paté, Boudin, Eggplant Parmigiana, Short Rib, Porchetta, Smoked Chicken, Cauliflower, and Raddichio which ended up being just about $40 per person. It was the perfect amount for a group of mostly moderate eaters and a couple of big eaters, and for me, the absolute stand-out dishes were the Paté, Boudin, Eggplant Parmigiana, and Cauliflower.

Food and service were on point. My very fussy partner assumed he wouldn't like it, or it would be over priced and was so pleased with everything he is already looking to book our next dinner there. Definitely recommended.

Food is spectacular for smoked meat lovers.
Price can be seem to be too high however really worth it after you actually tasted the food and understands what goes beyond it. LOVE how they offer take away options as well.
Service was great, prompt and specials for the night was communicated very well, drinks arrived really quickly after you ordered.

Terrific place, top atmosphere and great food. Service was excellent - with one exception. The initial advice on the size of serves was way over the top. As a result we ordered far too much. Still, what we did get was excellent.

Our waitress who were looking after our table was amazing. She was very friendly and helpful. Throughout the night she was just outstanding.
But the lady who was bringing our foods were just not friendly. She always bang the dishes on the table, I guess she was explaining the foods to us, but she always speak so quietly and quickly, we couldn't catch it even for once. I guess, she thought we don't speak English since we're Asians.
Apart from that experience, we had an amazing night. Chefs showed us the oven when they were start smoking the pork.
I will definitely come back and recommend to my friends.
Thank you so much for the amazing night!

Myself and 2 of my friends were up from Melbourne and I booked LP expecting a great night given I had it recommended.
We were very disappointed when we were told, at 8:30pm that they had run out of 2 of the main menu dishes (beef). Pretty poor for a place calling itself “quality meats” not to have 2 showcase menu items on a Saturday night, mid service. Staff were pretty unapologetic

Every dish was delicious. The dry aged rib eye was epic and definitely the best steak I've had in a few years. Will return soon.

The pork belly is good in n out. Crispy out succulent in flavor thruout. Lamb ribs can be the perfect finger food. Mashed potatoes with the gravy...mmm hmmm.

In house sourdough beautiful especially when ate with the mustard radish sauce.

The last time I was at this place was probably about 4-5 years ago and it was great then. It still is now. I’d have like a tasting plate option or a more varied cold cut plate but that’s my feedback.

The octopus is amazing.

Great food, loud space. The place is buzzing (in a good way). Shame about some of the clientele that go there. We were surrounded by obnoxious bankers that were yelling all night. But the restaurant can’t control the people that go there so it wasn’t their fault. Would definitely recommend though as the food and service are top notch

Great restaurant, sounds obvious but only come here if you're after a meat feast. I went with a group of guys and got the $70 banquet, I've never been so uncomfortably full in my life.
