Gweilo Surry Hills pays homage to Pan-Asian and Hong Kong street food and has set the bar extremely high. This Sydney spot is a dining and drinking hub and the vibe is truly infectious. The menu is a contemporary take on traditional Chinese cuisine, with a unique western twist that ticks all the right boxes. This, paired alongside the carefully curated and impressive wine list makes for a night of feasting you won’t forget. If all this sounds up your alley then reserve a table, head to Elizabeth Street and settle in for an Asian fusion experience at Gweilo Surry Hills. You won’t regret it.
Set within an ambient space designed by Paul Kelly on Elizabeth Street in Surry Hills, Gweilo has created a mood that feels indulgent. Meaning, it’s perfect for long lunches, long dinners and long events spent sampling the cocktail and wine lists. And as we said, the menu at Gweilo Surry Hills is inspired by Pan-Asian and Hong Kong street food and is designed to be shared among friends. You’ll find the Asian fusion menu packed with small and big plates, all cooked with a wide range of ingredients that blend to create some of the most unique flavours in Sydney.
Some of our favourite small dishes at Gweilo Surry Hills include the KFC bao filled with kombu fried chicken, bulldog sauce and pickled cucumber; prawn, truffle and mushroom spring rolls and the kingfish sashimi with roasted coconut, chilli and lashings of lime. In terms of the big plates, we love the Rangers Valley rump with Cafe de Nippon butter; drunken pork belly with chilli caramel, apple and mint and the salt and native pepper squid with a preserved lemon dip. A favourite among Sydney locals for very good reason, this is one Asian fusion restaurant you don’t want to miss. Located on Elizabeth Street in Surry Hills, a visit to Gweilo is a very wise choice indeed.
Great vibe with fun DJ spinning a good mix of familiar and current tracks as well as some from 80s and 90s. Food was well prepared with good produce and pretty tasty. Will definitely come back with another group get together.
Fantastic food! Loved the pork belly and the beef shin. Prices were very reasonable and diverse selection of beer on tap. Will definitely go again!
Seriously yummy food. Friendly staff, close to home ... can definitely see that this will become a regular place to catch up with friends. Totally recommend it.
