Located amongst the corporate office buildings in the Darling Park precinct, you will find hidden gem Sepia Restaurant. Winner of countless awards, we’re not their only fans.
Sepia boasts a warm, dimly lit, 1920’s jazz vibe and is cleverly divided into dining areas along with a more relaxed bar space.
The bar is the perfect spot to to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink, or it is a worthy destination on its own. An extensive bar menu is offered, should you be seeking simply a glass of wine and a nibble.
The restaurant offers 4 course and degustation menus. But, we think the degustation is the best way to truly appreciate all that Sepia Restaurant has to offer.
Simply the best seasonal ingredients are utilised and you will notice a distinct Japanese influence in the dishes. The food is innovative and exciting, with a clever use of molecular gastronomy and the presentation of each dish is breathtaking. We’re sure you will agree. But not only do the dishes look spectacular, this is the kind of food that is going to have you muttering ‘OMG’ every time you take a bite. It’s that good.
Take it from us, this is food you will be remembering for some time to come. After all, Chef Martin Benn has trained under the greats such as Tetsuya Wakuda and Marco Pierre White, so exquisite food should come second nature to him.
Goes without saying a high calibre wine list is offered, put together by the SMH Good Food Guide’s 2013 Sommelier of the year, Rodney Setter.
We think Sepia Restaurant is really something special and we hope you do too.
