About The Strangers’ Restaurant at NSW Parliament House

Dining at Strangers’ Restaurant, on Macquarie Street in the heart of Sydney, takes diners on a fascinating journey through history, tracing the evolution of dining practices and food trends, along with NSW Parliament’s rich collection of art and artefacts. Nestled in NSW Parliament House overlooking the beautiful domain and not far from the Royal Botanical Gardens, the building is full of hidden surprises along with a stylish restaurant delivering an à la carte menu, high tea and private dining options. Start with Sydney rock oysters, finger lime and mirin aqua, or lemon and garlic scallops, radicchio salad, anchovy dressing and pangrattato; moving onto mains such as lamb cutlets, petit pois à la Français and mustard mashed potato, enjoyed with a glass of Bloodwood Cabernet Sauvignon.
