Great little place. Coffee is by far the best around that area. Food is a great selection of traditional Italian and the salad plate is magnificent. Can choose up to any 3 of the enormously popoular salads. Plenty for both meat lovers as well as vegetarians. Definite must try for those near the area.

This place has the location and staff to make it the top Chinese restaurant in town but fails to deliver with the food which is pretty average. The menu reads well, but everything we had was pretty conventional in terms of flavour. The dumplings are fine, the pastry was right but the bbq duck and vege fillings were bland. The Palace duck dumplings are heaps better!

The kangaroo in XO sauce was fairly boring too, no kick from the chilli and the gamey flavour of roo almost non existent, perhaps due to the over marination and tenderisation process. Too much corn starch making a goopy sauce. While it didnt taste like beef, there was no wow factor to showcase Aussie produce which this place could easily make their own given they also have croc etc on the menu.

Was very disappointed with the spring rolls vermicelli which was bland. But besides that a good little eatery.

I've been here a few times now and I love it! Sitting on the verandah today, overlooking the garden and sipping champagne was just lovely. We had the sparkling high tea and I thought it was good value compared to the many other high teas I've had around Sydney ($44 for the sparkling high tea or $39 without sparkling) The scones were the best I've tasted and the sweet pastries were homemade and wonderfully delicate. Warm, friendly service, China tea cups and my favourite Irish breakfast tea... I was in heaven. This is now my favourite place to go for high tea.

It's quite expensive for Hurstville, with food being typically $16-$30 each but the place is otherwise nice to be in. I have no complaints about the service whatsoever. Perhaps the previous reviewer caught them at a wrong time.

Food on a weekday night was severely restricted to chips and nuts. Come for the drinks instead but if you're a woman, you may need to bring some others along as the clientele is mainly men. As a man it was good ambience. The rest was good.

This was a first time visit to The Canopy using an Our Deal voucher for lunch mid-week. We started with house-made dips with toasted artisan breads, which was pleasant. For mains we ordered Crisp skinned barramundi with warm baby potato, cherry tomato and olive salad and a 300g grain fed scotch fillet steak with house relish, fries and jus. I’m not sure whether the kitchen staff prepared the main meals, the moment we were served with the starters, because the fries served with the steak were not even warm. This was brought to the attention of the wait staff and a replacement meal was prepared and delivered to the table without fuss or too much of a delay. The warm baby potato served with the barramundi was just that, only warm, not piping hot, but acceptable. The steak was correctly cooked, however could have benefitted with the addition of salad or vegetable accompaniments. The barramundi was nice also, but could have had some green salad components to complete the meal. Service was good and friendly, although ambience suffers when this venue is busy with the noise level increasing. Value with a voucher was good, but questionable without. We enjoyed our lunch, nevertheless would probably not return without a discount deal, or some more tempting dishes on offer.

This was our second visit to Kingsley’s Australian Steakhouse at King Street and once again, steaks were perfectly cooked, very tender and full of flavour. This time we ordered the Riverina Grass Fed 160g petite fillet and the 220g Eye Fillet, served with a garden salad and pepper and mushroom sauces. Website food menu and wine by the glass items do not reflect printed menus presented at the venue. Having online menus that are not updated are worthless. If new menus can be printed, website food and wine menus can be updated accordingly. This is annoying when evaluating possible choices online prior to a visit, only to be disappointed when presented with a different printed menu. Hopefully management can rectify this situation. It’s just not professional to accept this.

We dined for lunch on a 50% off food deal for a first time visit to this venue. Our main choices were a 220g grass fed eye fillet with garden salad and 400g NY cut striploin with chips. We also ordered a side dish of sweet potato salad with bacon and crème fraiche which was pleasant. Dishes were beautifully presented and delightful on the palate. The steaks were very tender, flavoursome and cooked to perfection. We also received a complimentary bowl of varied chocolate coated coffee beans at the completion of our meal.

Service was very friendly, however wine and water glass attention for top-ups for our table was lacking. With a discount deal, this establishment was very good value for money. Extensive drinks menu provides for a very good selection. Ambience was pleasant with sandstone walls, although a little noisy as they were quite busy for a mid-week lunch booking, which is also a good sign of popularity. An enjoyable and relaxing occasion and would consider returning another time.

The prices are quite exorbitant for the quality of the food. It's $7 for a scone with jam and cream, more expensive than any other sandwich. And it was nothing special - the scone was dry and you can tell it was not fresh. Will not be coming back.

Great pub food here and very good value overall. Steaks were perfect. Go for the eye fillet with truffle mash. Everything you would expect from a quality city pub.

I can't think of anything redeeming... I was at this pub last night, and the food was abysmal. Beef sliders were more like gristle sliders. The mens toilets are unspeakably disgraceful, in part due to patrons, but mainly due to lack of maintenance. I'll spare you, the reader, the details, but suggest you go to one of the other pleasant pubs in North Sydney if in the area if you want an enjoyable experience.

Average food and slow service... I wouldn't bother.

Also, voucher users beware! It says Bookings not required... just call and book to avoid the hassle of listening to their excuses!

I visited for weekday lunch in October 2014 using a voucher. The food was ok (only thing decent was the naan and the butter chicken), the service was slow and there were problems redeeming the voucher.

Returned here again using a different voucher, however, this was not honoured due to some conditions ie last orders by 1.30 for voucher patrons only, fyi we arrived (with orders already in our head) at 1.27pm and they refused.

This was not stated at all on the voucher. I would not have minded so much, gone elsewhere and would come back another time. I mean I understand, I've worked in the hospitality industry. However, when giving constructive criticism the staff member did not listen and spoke over me the entire time.

If a business is going to offer vouchers to bring in customers, they better get their act together.

What a great restaurant. The last time I was here was 25 years ago and tonight by chance, I returned. The owner is the same happy gentleman that enjoyed a laugh and the food is as good as I remembered. It wasn't busy being a Wednesday night, as the restaurant is located on the Petersham side of Parramatta Rd with little pedestrian traffic, but if you enjoy good quality wholesome food at reasonable prices, you need to go to this place. I'm still trying to work out why I avoided this place for so long. Regrets. A great place.

This place is great! Food is fresh, simple and absolutely delicious. My second visit here in a fortnight :) The pork and vege dumplings, chicken with garlic and soy and the bulgolgi will keep me coming back.
