Sydney Dining Highlights

      Bar H Dining A Surry Hills Mainstay


      A mainstay of Surry Hills on Foster St, Bar H dining has captured the imagination of diners in its corner location, with its Japanese and Chinese influences. Bar H dining offers interesting almost exotic food.


      The ambience is chic and sophisticated, yet not pretentious. We were pleasantly engaged by the maitre'd.

      Bar H Dining was opened in October 2010 by Chef Hamish Ingham and wife Sommelier Rebecca Lines. As the name suggests Bar H Dining is a wine bar style eatery, fun and vibrant with a relaxed feel about it. The concept is to offer the finest quality food, beverages and service in a relaxed and informal manner.


      Bar H Dining is like a Japanese restaurant with a penchant for Chinese interpretations. Says the website - 

      "We believe in using the finest sustainable, quality produce. Each week we talk to our suppliers and head to the markets to give you a menu based on the freshest produce available. Our food highlights Hamish’s long love affair with China, his newest love Japan and the indigenous ingredients native to this land." 

      Come here for arguably Sydney's best bar snack, the Crisp saltbush and chilli. This featured featuring branches of saltbush deep fried and served with chilli aoli and lemon. So good. 

      Other standouts include Japanese fried chicken, Wagyu rump, and Red-braised duck breast.


      Desserts are also brilliant including this Custard Tart with yuzu citrus hit.

      Fit out is modern with the restaurant housed in a charming historical building with high ceilings. Bottles of wine and books adorn the walls. The restaurant is dark albeit for a few candles and funky lighting, enhanced by the dark fine furniture. Highly recommended.
