Paper Bird is a welcome addition to the Potts Point dining scene. Modern Korean fusion done with style and flair. Great ambience and style. Excellent menu, we especially loved the cauliflower and amazing fried chicken.

What a fabulous little restaurant! Tucked away off Macleay St - intimate and trendy venue - amazing staff and service. Enjoyed everything we ordered - the food was spectacular. Good wine list and saki options as well. Highly recommended.

Great food and fabulous service. Enjoyed every dish with several favourites including XO arancini w mussel emulsion, kimchi toastie and the cheesecake with yuzu curd, white chocolate and cumquat. Can't wait to try other items on the menu.

Ticks all the boxed for taste, presentation, service , ambience and value. What more can one ask for in a local restaurant?

Brunch with a Korean twist! The pork was so tasty and tender! Great coffee, excellent service. Makes a change from the usual local breakfast. Well worth a visit

Paper Bird is from the same people that brought you Moon Park in Redfern. East Asian-inspired food and open for brunch on weekends. And a VERY different brunch it is. Two of us shared three dishes … none of them traditional breakfast/brunch dishes but all...More

Had been really looking forward to dining at Paper Bird. I'd read some amazing reviews so we made a last minute Valentines reservation and were pleased to be squeezed in upon a cancellation. Walked in and no one greeted me despite the three staff in...More
