We were a table of 6, celebrating my daughter's birthday. The restaurant was quite cosy tending to be slightly tight. The menu managed to satisfy the palette of my family. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was good and friendly.

Choose this venue, having seen the positive reviews online. Great deco and friendly staff giving it a friendly feeling. The food was excellent Modern Australian especially the lamb. Great location so you can walk around circular quay after the dinner

I have no idea why so many hotel concierge recommend this restaurant. Makes me doubt their authenticity. The food was well prepared, the lamb rare and tender, my salad was pretty normal, nothing special. But it was the atmosphere that took it off my radar...More

Having read the great reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to give Selah a go when we visited Sydney earlier this month. We had dinner there on the 19th October. Superb food, excellent service and I hope for those who visit regularly, Selah finds a new...More

Selah has been our treat to ourselves for my partner and me over the past few years. We would donate blood, then head to Selah to rebuild iron levels with any of the dishes on the sumptuous menu.... Purely on the wholly defensible grounds of...More

I ordered the fish (Ling) and it was overcooked and smelled. My wife ordered the tenderloin which I actually enjoyed (after trying my disgusting fish anything would have tasted good). She thought it was too salty. The best thing there was my daughter's kids meal...More

This restaurant is just near circular quay. Its easy to get to and not as expensive as those with views. Food is very tasty and the service is good

I have become a little tired of the Sydney restaurant scene. So many charge so much for so little, or cater for tourists with little care for ensuring guests return. Not at Selah though. I had a thoroughly enjoyable meal there recently. Very nice food,...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
