Love going for this place for cocktails. The atmosphere is really nice and the food menu is good too, especially the dumplings. Good place for pre drinks.

Wonderful picturesque and delicious cocktails! Perfect happy hour, I wish I could go there every week! $10 pizzas are also great, we tried the prawn pizza which went really well with the fruity cocktails.

Wow! $10 pizzas + $5 Stellas during happy hour, which I think actually goes for two hours. Great atmosphere here, live music, amazingly good pizzas + beer and cocktail selection. Decor was very cool also. Service was bit hit and miss (sometimes came too often, sometimes had a wait a while for another beer) but didn't detract from the experience. Had a great night here; it was Thursday and it was packed. Would imagine this place would very popular on Friday and Saturday. Great location near Central - love it, a real find.

Food was great and reasonable pricing and the service was also good too. However the cups were dirty which was a turn off. But would definitely recommend eating here.

Good place for quick work lunch. Lots of $10 options. Good food. Their sweet potato fries deserve a special mention. They do it much better than many other places. Still tastes like sweet potato, but crunchy, yum! Their giant chicken schnitzel is, well, giant, and delicious - easily enough for 2 people to share.

Like anything, way better value when you're there during Happy Hour. Cocktails are always good, very consistent with flavour and alcohol content. A good selection, your favourite is always waiting for you. Table service is generally quick and friendly. Food is also reasonable. Location is great, easy access to the station of you're coming in from out of the CBD. Give it a try!

Love this place. Amazing cocktails! Happy hour $10 5-7pm. Food menu is extensive too. Fills up fast so booking would be recommended.

Booked Li'l Darlin Surry Hills for a group event. Great set menu options and catered easily for dietary requirements. Food was plentiful and delicious. Table service was a nice touch. Everyone has a great time and enjoyed working through the extensive cocktail list. It's hard to find a venue in Surry Hills for 15 + people and this fit the bill nicely. Would recommend

Came here for my birthday celebration. Booked a table and they were really helpful gave me the information I needed. BTW if you book for more than 10 people you need to fill out this form. We were greeted with friendly staff. It was packed which is usually a good sign. I have been to the one in Randwick. This had a similar vibe. Cocktails were . They had mulled cider which was fitting for the cold weather. I think I could have drank that by the bucketful. Food was great all my friends seem to have enjoyed what they ordered especially the roast duck pizza. The wait staff was really friendly and attentive didnt get his name but we just called him Jesus because he looked Christ-like. They also got me to ring the bell for some reason. Something about it being happy final happy hour/my birthday still confused.The dessert was also amazing.

$10 lunch deals and the quality of food is amazing across the whole menu!!Some favourites are the wraps and burgers!Vegetarian options are super delicious; roasted vegetable wrap and mushroom burgers! The added $3 chips with additional mushroom sauce is out of this world!!

This place originally came into existence to be a refuge for women who wanted a drink without the prospect of being harassed by male folks, says Alex the owner. However, it seems that women like men, on occassion, and they opened their doors to all comers in order to spice up the joint. The cocktails are super creative and very Instagram friendly. If you love sugary sweet treats then you'll have a party in your mouth with these drinks. They have some fresh and tart flavours too, but the sweeter drinks are really something else. I came here for the cocktail master class and it was definitely an amazing experience. I loved hearing about how each drink is made and getting to taste all of the delicious options available. Making my own cocktail was super fun too. The fairy floss and the marshmallow cocktails were my favourite, but the mad hatter was also good and probably would be a tasty option for someone who prefers drinks without that sugary hit. All the drinks have fresh ingredients and mixers that are made in-house. I definitely recommend getting a group together for the master class, it's super fun. The happy hour specials are great too; all cocktails are $10!!

Great atmosphere in a great location. There's a great range of cocktails to choose from and all those tested were fantastic. Their pizza boards are great snacks and there's also a good selection. Perfect spot for a group or after work drinks. Can get quite busy during peak times.

If you're looking to have a couple of great (inexpensive) cocktails and bite to eat, Lil Darlin a great spot. It's always hussling in their, great music and friendly staff.Food is not very well portioned, however, it tastes great.

Best bar in Sydney hands down. Not too upscale and just a great place to hang out. Cocktails are the best in town and works of art... The Old Fashioneds oh my. Very attentive service well done.

Went on a Friday after work to catch up with friends. They have $10 pizza happy hour between 7-9pm and the food is really tasty 👌Service is quick and attentive. Happy hour cocktails for $10 is also great. The place was pretty full, but we never waited long for our drinks or food.Live music, relaxed atmosphere and pretty decor. Only minor downside is there's only 1.5 dunnies for the ladies.
