About Culprit

Making the most of secondary cuts and unloved vegetables, Culprit works their magic on the forgotten produce of commercial kitchens. Exposed beams and a leather decor, mixed with their elusive doorway on Wyndham Street, gives the venue a unique speakeasy atmosphere. Expand your palette with dishes such as the pig jowl, chicken liver, and goat shoulder.

Angela looked after us very well. It was a bit quiet but the curtains closing off the E side worked well. The level of sounds (good) allowed us to have a decent conversation. Some more/wider red wine options please. Love the food and presentation. Until soon. Martin

This was our first time at Culprit and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The team were attentive without being intrusive. The food was spectacular and way ahead of some of the supposedly top restaurants in the city. We will be back.

We had a lovely evening. It’s a nice change having a set menu, trying things you normally wouldn’t. Beautiful space and food!

Loved the structure of dining, trolley durby and a small selection of mains. My husbands fish was dry, but my lamb was melt in the month gold. Loved the flavours the plate/delivery.

Had a fantastic time with the crew. Staff were attentive and relaxed, and keen to provide aean experience. Best fresh oysters we've had in bloody ages, portions were perfect, and Vogel's dish was hilarious. Thanks for a mint night.

Great food & hospitality. Beautiful venue, spacious, clean, pleasant atmosphere. Food was fresh and seasonal, simply delicious. Staff were exceptional, attentive service. Food allergies were facilitated with minimal fuss. The tables had hooks underneath to hang a handbag - so clever.

Gorgeous gorgeous food. We had the $45 trolley menu shared our mains and added the chicken parfait and a dessert so had a degustation dinner of nine courses for $54. Spectacular value and clever beautiful food. Great wait staff- friendly helpful and unobtrusive. Great sommelier too. We sat at the kitchen bar and the chef even had time to chat. We had a great night and will certainly be back. All the best for the lockdown.

My husband and I opted for Trolley Derby. We both loved Wasabi beans, Kingfish and the lamb.. the sweetcorn toasties were good also but thought these could be substituted for something more ‘delicate’ like the other three.. For the mains i chose the monk fish which was so good, My husband chose the Angus beef. The sauce was excellent but the mean itself was a little too tough. We will definitely go back there. It was such a pleasant date night:)

Thank you for making our end of year effortless. From communication prior, to everything on the night, we had an amazing time. Service was highly attentive, food was excellent, water service was on point. 10/10 would recommend.
