About Rookie Eatery

Whether a first time diner or seasoned regular, Rookie Eatery on Keira Street in Wollongong welcomes guests to a contemporary Asian fusion dining experience well worth remembering. Clean and casual, Rookie Eatery’s three rooms of whitewashed walls, crisp white tablecloths and refreshing interior, play in fitting contrast to a rugged historic housed exterior, suited for casual refined gatherings. Chef and owner Daniel Sherley presides over a vibrant menu, taking taste buds on a journey through the likes of charcoal-grilled cuttlefish, wrapped in lettuce leaf typhoon shelter style; before something heartier such as Rangers Valley Wagyu rump, charred broccolini and sesame sauce. For a sweet finish, try peanut parfait, soft chocolate, salted butterscotch, caramel corn and whiskey snap.

Food was amazing. Service fantastic. It is a must for food lovers!!!!!!



Visited Rookie a few months ago. Menu was innovative and the quality of food served was simply superb as was the service from a small but highly competent wait staff. We were a party of four and the cost was very reasonable for the quality of food and service delivered. Highly recommended!
