We had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lunch in the heart of Sydney’s Botanic Gardens at The Calyx. It is honestly the prime location for a lovely lunch out or weekend high tea and could not be more beautiful!
Only a short 5 minute walk from the entrance of the botanic gardens, right between the conservatorium and art gallery and you can find yourselves in this restaurant, where you can enjoy your meal in amongst this beautiful scenery.
Why not take a true break from work in a serene environment away from your busy office or come here as a destination visit. The venue has a take away café, but also dine in option and your tables are amongst the beautifully stunning pollination display. It is incredible.
They have launched a new and fresh Asian-inspired menu with small tapas plates and larger dishes. We chose to personally try:
Brioche sliders with fried chicken, slaw and sirarcha as well as pork belly bao: these were both delicious starters to the meal.
For the larger dishes, we selected the braised brisket, spicy red cabbage topped with wonton noodle crisps and peanuts.
We supplemented this with the vermicelli salad, carrot, bean, cabbage, Vietnamese herbs, hot & sour dressing, quite refreshing on a hot day.
You can order tea, coffee, juice or even glass of wine to accompany your meal. We had a lovely glass of red!
Efficient service and friendly staff, this is a lovely venue which we’ll certainly revisit in the future.
Thanks to the Trish Nicol Agency for the invitation to dine.
