Best Restaurants in Enmore

Updated August 10th, 2022


Enmore is a slim suburb that's probably best known for iconic live music venue The Enmore Theatre. But despite its small size, Newtown's quieter next-door neighbour has an abundance of excellent and diverse restaurants. These are our favourites.

  • Ask most Indian, Pakistani or Bangladeshi taxi drivers who’ve worked in the inner west where they go for a late-night feed and you’ll hear the same answer: Tandoori Hut. Many locals know it for its good value tandoori, butter chicken and other Indian diner standards, but that’s not what some regulars order; they ask for the special menu, a list of traditional Pakistani options scrawled on the back of a receipt.

  • At one of Sydneys' only Nigerian restaurants you can order goat stew, jollof rice, Nigerian meat pies and a traditional, spicy west Nigerian dish, ofada stew.

  • The pokies are gone and Big Buck Hunter is in. The Duke lives on with local beers, "stiff and strong" cocktails and upscale pub grub – think chicken liver pâté on toast, puffy breads stuffed with mortadella and a fancy steak.

  • Oversized New York-Style Pizzas. Order by the slice or walk away with a 22-inch pie.

  • This social enterprise serves soft-shell crab roti-tacos with mango salsa as well as more traditional home-style food, alongside punchy, spice-driven cocktails.

  • An all-vegan Thai restaurant with “fish” curry and a special take on “Buffalo wings”.

  • Bright-green felafel, rolls stuffed with charcoal lamb and a Cairo brunch.

  • A beloved, family run restaurant in Enmore is doing casual street food just like they would eat at home.

  • It’s styled after an old-school trattoria, but this enduring eatery serves thoroughly modern interpretations of Italian cuisine – often with native produce. And though the wine list reveres the classics from Piedmont and Tuscany, Australian producers are given equal weighting here. An Enmore classic for a reason.

  • Housed behind one of Enmore Road’s most iconic facades, the Porteno Group’s beautiful tapas and wine bar draws inspiration from all over Europe, most notably Spain. Take a seat in the stunning mid-century space for house-cured snacks, charcoal-grilled meat and seafood, and plenty of Sangria.
