About Platform 818

The creation of Platform 818 Restaurant & Bar was influenced by the history and heritage of its locality at 818 George Street, located in Chippendale right on the cusps the Sydney CBD.

Directly below the hotel lies the now unused original Goods Line Tunnel – the first of its kind in Sydney – used to connect Sydney Rail Yard and the Sydney-Parramatta railway line to the shipping port of Darling Harbour. Conveniently located opposite the historical Central Station, the largest station in Sydney which was first opened in 1855 as a simple wooden platform, nothing more than a corrugated iron shed, we have taken some of this rustic inspiration for our new décor.

Experience a modern take on classic Australian dishes made with locally-sourced produce that once would have travelled from railway towns along the NSW goods line. Enjoy these dishes with our meticulously curated all-Australian wine list or carefully crafted highball cocktails. Dining with a group? We also offer a group dining menu to make hosting a party as hassle-free as possible.

Hop on board for great times and palatable adventures.

There could be more vegetarian options available; the selection wasn’t extensive.

The atmosphere and food was great. Good location if you wanna use public transport. Excellent customer service. It was my wife's birthday. The lady at entrance welcomed us kindly and congratulated my wife for her birthday. When I asked for the bill Juliet provided us complimentary ice cream and coffee-wine syrup for free to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was a great thought and fantastic customer service. I 100% recommend this restaurant. A+++++

I've already recommended this restaurant to heaps of people. The food was outstanding and the waiters were incredibly nice. The place is a bit pricey but well worth it if you're willing to splurge.

My husband and I were welcomed in, it was a little tight, felt very close to other people. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice though. However, the food didn’t suit our taste. We’re very simple people, there wasn’t much on the menu that we could really choose from. We ended up going to the pub across the road and had a chicken schnitzel with chips and salad.

Great food!!! When service wasn’t up to speed they recognised this and did anything they could to make sure my experience was still very enjoyable.

We request some seat seems nice then reception said “there is booked” we were checking when the customer come however I hear they let give that seat for walk in customer. It was pretty annoying, could be we were 50% off customer from the fork. But as customer service they should not discriminate all customer, I don’t think it was smart decision. Taste and waiters service were nice but these experience we might not come back. Food were quite nice but felt bit over priced. Specially 2 slice of halumi cheese and 4 small garlic prawn as $17 (or similar) each dish.

Food drink were really good quite surprised, I got pork medalians and they were a little bit dry but apart from that quite excellent. Service felt a bit basic, nothing wrong but nothing that gives it a high level or connection with us.

The startes and sides are fantastic, however the mains are very weak They also placed some weird cream cheese with the brownie. Tasted awful. The location and the decor looks great and comfortable. And the team are really nice and accomodating.

The food was fantastic but the service was quite awful. We had one server for our large group of 16, which usually isn't a problem as I've dined in large groups before and the server can usually handle it. I had also made the booking well in advance so it wasn't as if our group size was a surprise. But our server seemed frazzled and could not answer our questions about the food or drink recommendations. The main dishes came out before some of us had received our appetizers. The drinks were very late, and there were several drink mixups. Our server did not seem to be communicating with the bartender at all. We had two extra drinks on one end of the table and two drinks missing from the other end of the table, and we repeatedly asked the server whether those were our missing drinks, since we did not know what the particular cocktails we ordered were supposed to look like. She said no and that those were just extra drinks mistakenly brought out (?) and that the bartender would be making the two missing drinks. It turns out that those WERE the missing drinks we had asked for (we found out by the end of the dinner, when our food was finished and she brought out the additional drinks the bartender made to make up for our "missing" ones). It was our first night in Sydney and I was really hoping our first dinner would be a hit.

Staff were fantastic and very professional. The food was delicious and the cocktails were sublime. We appreciated the timing of our meal and did not feel rushed, despite dining prior to a show. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Platform 818 and look forward to returning.

We had an amazing experience at Platform 818 and the food and drinks were not only delicious but presented in an amazing way. Everything was cooked as we requested and had deep flavor. I highly recommend this restaurant for dinner or even just drinks. I would only say that service was a little slow, but everyone was very nice and accommodating and this would not prevent me from flying 20 hrs again to revisit Platform 818. Thank you for an amazing dinner!

The service was absolutely delightful all the staff were very attentive. We all loved our various mains consisting of the Barramundi , pork cutlet and lamb tomahawk. The chocolate brownie and cheese cake which is all made from scratch on side is mouth wateringly good. The decor and atmosphere in the restaurant is so different from a standard hotel restaurant so definitely worth a visit. We will definitely be back!
