Sydney has a new star this season, in the form of a dining sensation; The Star’s new contemporary Japanese restaurant and bar, Sokyo. It’s fresh, bold and sexy, so perfect for any true Sydney dweller; the design is modern and functions perfectly as a hip bar, a cool sunken restaurant or an intimate dining experience.
You can expect spectacular flavours in the traditional Kaiseki style or a multi-course Japanese dinner created by Chase Kojima, formerly of Nobu restaurants and his international Sokyo kitchen. The menu redefines Japanese food; Chase creates new twists on traditional classics whilst also introducing his diners tastebuds to new favourites that they won’t be able to experience anywhere, but at Sokyo. The menu consists of sashimi, tempura, signature dishes, robata, soups, salads, plus nigiri and sushi rolls, complemented by a selection of quality wines and sakés. All of which will be offered to diners individually straight off the menu or in the Sokyo tailored manner where the restaurants staff will take you on a journey through Japanese cuisine and culture.
The restaurant itself is sleek and polished with a dynamic hyper-modern Japanese theme and dramatic splashes of colour.
Sokyo is a ‘must go’ for anyone looking for a new generation of dining with traditional essence.

Downstairs at the Hunky Dory social club lies a contemporary yet traditional new eatery with young fresh ideas that boast a tantalising summer menu to be reckoned with. The owners Richie and Cinners have designed the inspirational space with dim lighting, religious imagery and home made crocheted tablecloths whilst using Bruno, the namesake of one of their fathers as the name for their new Italian haven.
The Pizziolo, Lorenzo creates memorable masterpieces with his secret family recipes and wood-fuelled pizza oven. This paired with a fine Italian wine list to compliment the amazing dishes means Bruno’s is definitely the hottest new Italian eatery around.
The menu boasts something for every Italian lover, the Pancia di maiale is a particular favourite for the team here at Poster along with the delicious Di lenticchia salad… bellissima!

Surry Hills, Sydney, lies in the heart of Australia’s café culture, boasting a range of cafés and restaurants that are as diverse and eclectic as its street life. The inner-city suburb has one of the highest, if not the highest, concentration of restaurants in Australia. Monkey Magic serves modern Japanese cuisine and has been a hit with Sydney-siders since its recent opening. The signature Monkey Magic Sushi Platter (each nigiri is dressed in an individual special sauce) prepared to order by sushi chef Michiaki Miyazaki, who previously worked in a two Michelin-starred restaurant Kikunoi in Japan. With fresh ingredients and stellar cooking styles, the dishes are simply magic.
