You spin me right round, baby, right round, like a lazy susan, right round, round, round. And, if you’re looking to get giddy with some rather flirtatious, dishy Malaysian cuisine in Sydney, you’re advised to scale the heights of Darlinghurst’s Stanley Street and pay a long, lugubrious and salubrious visit to Lazy Suzie. She’s a winner on so many counts – the food is a refreshing blast of Penang street stall and hawker food, charcoal-grilled delights and native Australian produce, keeping the global local in all the right places. What’s more, Lazy Suzie shakes up a mean cocktail, with concoctions gleaning ideas from Malaysian kopitiam coffee kiosks and the colours and flavours of the famous Southeast Asian nation. Centrally located, close to the corner with Crown Street, bookings are strongly advised.
We turned up at the restaurant, made orders and waited for 45 minutes. We kept hearing the ding from the kitchen but never received any item of our orders. We kept seeing tables around us, including those that came after and placed order after us, receiving plates of food which looked like our orders. Upon enquiring the waitress who smirked with an audible giggle at us for being over zealous, she fetched our waiter whom we placed the order with. He unapologetically advised that our orders would come soon. When we asked why others got them before us, he impatiently said yours have been put through now. So we asked what you meant, he then explained "Let's just say that I forgot and now they have been put through" . Suffice to say, we left and vowed never to returned. We travelled across the bridge on a Saturday night for this attitude?? Come on, there are plenty of restaurants in Sydney. Hopefully yours will fold soon with this kind of attitude!!
