The best all-you-can-eat experiences in Sydney

If you have a mighty hunger and hollow legs, here are the bottomless experiences to get around in Sydney

By Emily Lloyd-Tait and Divya Venkataraman

Sydney is a town with a prodigious appetite, and nothing gets our attention like the promise of allowing our stomachs to dictate when we're full (rather than our wallets). Although that's not to say we're indiscriminate when it comes to all-you-can menus. We've searched the city for the best places where you can eat your fill of top-notch chow, so we suggest you come hungry to these top-quality all-you-can experiences in Sydney.

Restaurants The Rocks

This inner-city oyster house is embracing a little Parisian indulgence. Book in on Mondays and Tuesdays for lunch or dinner and you can enjoy steak or moules marinière served with bottomless frites (those are fries for those non-Francophones), all for just $25 per person.

2. Japanese platters at Okami Marrickville

After opening upwards of 20 (!) outlets in Melbourne, Japanese chain Okami has set its sights on Sydney. A new outpost on Illawarra Road in Marrickville has opened, offering a menu of sushi platters, karaage chicken, agedashi tofu and Japanese desserts. For the oddly specific price of $34.80 per person, diners can eat as much as they want – although you'll only have a two-hour window to get your fill.

3. Korean chicken and booze at Goobne

News Restaurants

Goobne, meaning ‘oven-roasted’ in Korean, cooks its chicken at a piping hot 195 degrees celsius, leaving it tender and crisp. Settle in for a bottomless evening of chicken wings and boozy drinks for $69 per person. Choose from five flavours of chicken – original, galbi (a barbecue-style flavour), fruity soy, volcano, and deep cheese – and pick from a range of house wines and beers for your whole, chicken-stuffed 90-minute reservation.

4. Oozy raclette at Loluk Bistro

News Restaurants

Every Tuesday and Wednesday, Surry Hills southern French-style restaurant, Loluk Bistro is dishing out raclette – a giant wheel of cheese, melted over a flame until it becomes a molten river of oozy deliciousness – generously drizzled over vegetables, potatoes, salad and plates piled with charcuterie. You can keep ordering the vegetables and potatoes until closing time. A dessert of scrumptious, custard-filled profiteroles is thrown in too, all for a cool $49.

5. Boodle feast at Sizzling Filo

Restaurants Filipino Lidcombe

No cutlery. No plates. Just one long table heaving with food. This, my friends, is a boodle fight. It’s how the Filipino military used to eat in an army mess hall. Today’s boodle fights have evolved into more of a communal feast for family and friends. Sizzling Fillo has ten different banquets to choose from, so it’s worth rounding up at least three of your mates who won’t freak out about eating with their fingers. Pre-book at least three days in advance.

6. Nepali Breakfast at AD's Kitchen

Restaurants Nepalese Ashfield

There’s nothing like seeing a batch of freshly cooked puri coming straight out of the kitchen. Puffed up like golden UFOs, these hollow and soft deep-fried breads have slightly crisp edges and a speckled, sugary surface. At AD's Kitchen, one of the few places offering a traditional Nepali breakfast in Sydney, you'll pay $12 and be provided with a plate to load up as often as you like at the self-serve stations – and fear not, they're operating under strict safety and hygiene guidelines to ensure all patrons can enjoy their feast as safely as possible.

7. Hot wings at Daniel San

Bars Manly
For some pan-Asian/surf town fusion vibes, head to Manly’s Daniel San. On Wednesdays, you can get endless hot wings for $19 per person. The wings come with a kick, in flavours like smoky BBQ, hot buffalo, citrus teriyaki and kimchi. They'll even throw in some hot chips on the side. In summer, slope in after a day at the beach for an Asahi, Sapporo or Kirin to quench that saltwater thirst.
