About Rookie Eatery

Whether 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 resonating with fresh aromas and flavours. Taste buds are taken on a journey through the likes of lamb and cumin dumplings, chiu chow and black vinegar, as well as duck Maryland, yuzu mustard, puffed quinoa, pickled kohlrabi and crisp nori; while for something heartier, delve into duck breast, black garlic puree, apple, amaranth and mirin.

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!
