PaperPlanes is an eclectic restaurant from the people at LL Wine and Dine in Kings Cross. The ambience is dark and brooding (in a good way) with the talking piece of suspended colourful skateboards and white paper cranes (not planes). It's kind of fine dining in a relaxed mode but has provision for folding the funky menu (pictured) into a paper plane... Bringing out the child in us all.

Says the website - PaperPlanes is a concept based on the ideat of "Tokyo Pop", which is our take on Japanese culture, encapsulating the energy and excitement that is modern Japan.

Our venue features the Rock/Paper/Scissors Bar, a 10 metre long stage of cocktail shaking, DJ spinning and sushi slicing.

Yes PaperPlanes brings us a sense of theatre.


Anyway we loved the Duck lettuce cups and the Soft Shell Crab... Could have gone for the Karaage chicken or the Sashimi for example. This is a place of small servings like a Japanese tapas...


And all the while the ceiling is entertainment in itself. If you're looking to bring someone to a quirky eclectic joint come here to PaperPlanes. Thanks to Mitch for the pictures and low down...


Love the glow on the bar...

We note that in both Sydney and Melbourne playful Japanese is a popular trend. Chic...
