Good food, but the space is too small and the staff are hopeless.
The soy & ginger sauce overpowers the crab omelette, best to order without. Bounty milkshake pretty good. Service great as well.
Big soft buns and great shakes
Busy with old school charm
Please get eftpos. The food here is great but it's annoying to have to have cash.
PBJ and Miso Caramel milkshakes are delicious and generously portioned. Chicken wings with vinegar and shallot sauce were too sweet, could have been more savoury. Crab omelette was a joy as always.
PBJ milkshake is a must
Can't say I'm a fan - I feel like this place is in desperate need of a really good scrub. I've never really enjoyed the food, but I've had a couple tasty and interesting milk shakes here before.
Another vote for the crab omelette. Was the right balance of crunchy, salty and sweet. A definite must.
Excellent service, food and a unique vibe. Further compliments to the creative forces that keep the menu innovative. A must go to in Sydney.
The scones are the best in town!
Delicious crab omelette and both the red racer and chuck Norris milk shake were amazeballs
Awesome soft shell crab omelette
Loving the new milkbar menu! Been a few times and still can't go past the cheeseburger with jap salads + generous amount of fries and the yummy wings!
Incredible food but I wish I don't have to smell like the food when I walk out. Would be great if they abandon the open kitchen concept.
Old school milk bar with new school values. Indulge in burgers, shakes & fries with that clever Japanese twist we expect from Cafe Ish (e.g. caramel-miso milkshake). Then have a nap.
Cheeseburger with jap slaw and the miso caramel milkshake are must orders.

Crab omelette - to die for

The awesome beef was so good, I actually used my fingers to sop up the sauce on my place! Awesome chicken is good too...
Try the specials this week, awesome
Seriously delicious, clever cuisine by Josh and his wife Ay. Japanese cooking with Aussie tucker-literally! Order the crocodile skewers and the homemade wattleseed udon
You can't go wrong with the big Ish breakfast and Masala chai latte if feeling peckish on Saturday morning
You'll never go wrong with the soft-shell-crab omelette or the big ish - big brekky with crocodile meat sausage! :)
Why have a bacon and egg roll when you can have a Bundawarrah-free-range-bacon and Kangaroo-Island egg damper?
Try the Deep Fried Apple Spring Roll
Gotta get the ribs and oysters. Desserts - apple spring rolls, lemon myrtle and fruit salad. Honestly, we were not disappointed by anything on the menu!
Josh loves Sake and always has a great selection on hand.
Love, love, love the wattle seed macadamia macaccino!
croque nippon is simply amazing!! rocked my world. the iced signature wattle, served with a scoop of wattleseed ice cream is fantastic. thumbs up!
Try the scrambled eggs with emu prosciutto.. Del ish
Best coffee in Surry Hills these days.
The food here is incredible as is the coffee. I believe I have a new favorite cafe!
All u can eat ribs on Wednesdays for $35. Pork better than beef which was dry but ironically really fatty. Good but not great, would have preferred to just go Hurricanes.
Crab omlette is gr8. If you're thingy about chilling tho, ask Mr Chef to go easy!
has heaps of sake
All you can eat ribs Wednesdays!
You must try the Blt on a damper!!
Ham hock, I like ham hock
Don't be fooled by bad press...Josh is the man.
Great fresh food, free wifi & a chill vibe. Highly recommend.
