    Best fine dining/omakase experience specialising in Korean cuisine and using the best sourced Korean ingredients for a magical and unforgettable dining experience. All the chefs were very knowledgeable and engaging with the customers. Each dish was explained in detail and executed to perfection. They encouraged people to ask questions and conversations flowed naturally. It was an 18 course dining experience like I've never had before in my life and definitely worth the $259. I left feeling very full and satisfied. Chef Noel was kind enough to ask every customer if they wanted extra serving of the different cuts of beef as there were plenty left over. The generosity will not go unnoticed. Magical experience and thank you to all the chefs for creating such a memorable experience. We attended with a party of 3 on 11 May 2024. Wishing MATKIM all the best in your future endeavours.

    We had booked months in advance for my partner's birthday that we were highly anticipating being foodies, but unfortunately was informed as we were getting ready to head out that the service would be closed and cancelled due to staff illness. Each year, we gift each other a fine dining experience for our birthdays instead of presents, and nominate up and coming restaurants. My partner was disappointed, as they couldn't offer a reschedule for a weekend as they were booked out, and we also had made arrangements for parking. Our recommendation being an exclusive 8-seat restaurant, is to have contingency staff to proceed with the service as many bookings are special events that are booked in advance; some are also travellers. We're unable to rate/recommend the restaurant due to the unforeseen circumstances.

    Amazing culinary experience, showcasing high quality Korean and Australian ingredients with a modern Korean style. The restaurant seats only eight diners, so the service was very personal and each dish is plated, sometimes prepared, in front of you, with the chefs providing anecdotes of their inspiration for each dish as it was served. A great, mostly Australian, wine pairing complimented the food perfectly. Not cheap, but great value for the quality and creativity of food, the level of service and the theatre of the experience.

    Genuinely an outstanding experience on every criteria. Dish preparation occurs right in front of up 8 customers. The chefs are extremely accessible and knowledgeable. I learnt much more than I expected about premium Korean and Korean influenced Australian ingredients. I have been to many of Sydney’s finest restaurants but cannot recall one with a degustation that was consistently more enjoyable than MATKIM’s.

    i had a fantastic solo dining experience here at MATKIM & i usually don’t write reviews unless it was memorable. MATKIM delivers on every aspect of fine dining: immaculate royalty-level service, eye for detail, housing a sophisticated atmosphere and innovative experimental dishes without compromise on the taste. i could tell that they worked very hard on perfecting the 3 hour, 18 course culinary experience for their guests through the thoughtfulness in the pace of the menu. i love that it wasn’t the most protein-forward (which many restaurants of similar caliber tend to almost always opt for heavy protein in their courses, which does surprise me since korean as a cuisine leaves a lot of room for interpretation otherwise) yet did not leave me wanting more at the end of the meal — definitely did not leave hungry or felt that any part of the dinner experience was lacking. for me, MATKIM honestly blew the korean fine dining scene in new york out of the water. this was especially noted in the attentiveness towards solo diners! will be back next time i’m in sydney! thank you so much you guys :)

    We wanted something special to mark our 20 year anniversary and MATKIM delivered. It truly was an incredible Korean culinary experience. A big shout out to Noel and the team for taking us through a journey of their childhood memories, showcasing the flavours, ingredients, food and presentation. Delicious!

    This is a perfectly curated Korean fine dining scene. Chef Jacob and his team have perfected the food, ambience, and service. Having been to other sister restaurants, I love this one the most, particularly with the jazz in the background. It is like having a personal chef cooking at my home without me cleaning up. So good! Keep up the great work. It is worth my 10 months' wait for this restaurant to open. Looking forward to my next meal with my family next month! Thank you so much for one of the best dining experiences that I ever have as a veteran foodie.
