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.

I'm sorry but this is obviously a sad mistake - this function was cancelled due to COVID19, this survey should not have been sent out!

Food was wonderful but the highlight of the night was definitely their service. Staff were very friendly and went above and beyond. They made a small mistake with our order but quickly fixed it without us even asking.

Service is fantastic. Very attentive and welcoming hosts. I had the steak - I felt that the quality of the steak when compared to steaks of a similar price at other establishments left something to be desired. I requested medium rare - the steak came out medium. I would come back overall, this was a minor detail. The ambience in terms of music could be a little more suave and sophisticated. This is entirely subjective. The lighting was perfect for a date. Good seating arrangement.

Second time returning. From food to service everything was amazing. Thank you to the manager last night, we were taken care of well. Their new menu is amazing. 100% recommend having the iron steak, it was cooked perfectly. Price is good especially with the Fork discount. A huge improvement to the overall restaurant from last time I visited. Thank you to everyone who served us!

Food was great, service average to slightly below average. We had to go find our waiter a couple of times.

Foods are very nice. Good service. The atmosphere is nice but it'd be better to make a bit lighter.

We enjoyed a lovely meal 2 Friday nights in a row at 818. The food and service was very good on both occasions and using our Accorplus made it great value also. The diverse team are so lovely and friendly and make you feel very welcome. All the appetisers are so good it makes it very hard to get to a main! We look forward to our next visit

Not a good experience. Service was very poor, food just average. Would not return or recommend. In fact, I wish I had my money refunded for what I consider one of the worst dinner experiences.

We had a great night. The service was impeccable and the staff were so friendly. Mum celebrated her birthday there and she was so touched by the personalised card the staff gave her. The food was awesome too. We will definitely be back. Thank you team platform 818:)
