Ate here on a trip to Sydney. Overall, my experience was good. Nice food, I'd recommend trying the bugs and scallaps. Bear in mind that this place is inside a hotel, but has a good view over the city.

We dined at The Tenary last year for our wedding anniversary, The food and the service were such a high standard that we dined there for all of our meals. I highly recommend being seated where the chef's work as it makes a brilliant and...memorable experience. Last year our faves were at The Grill, this year we loved The Wok. We returned to celebrate our anniversary and hubby's birthday again this year, based on our wonderful experience last year. There is an excellent variety of food, and everything is so fresh and well presented on the plate... and most importantly tastes Superb! The staff are fantastic. On our last night the waitress Katrone? was outstanding, as were the Chefs at The Wok side (particularly the Head Chef?) - it was fascinating to watch them work and coordinate meals to the table with the other side of the kitchen and the wait staff. The Cheese and Garlic Naan bread was the best I have ever had, and we also highly recommend the Chicken Dim Sims, Penang Prawn Curry, and my fussy Italian husband loved his Linguini pasta with Prawns. The Scotch Filled from my first night meal was superb also Hubby loved the Pork with Sweet and Sour Sauce (sets a high standard) (as did the Espresso Martini!). The Executive Chef takes great pride in his staff and their work, and so he should because our meals were memorable and we can't wait to return.More

Can I just reiterate that the food and service here is just top notch. The chefs do whip up an amazing array of dishes like the Garlic & Cheese Naan, Salmon and Avocado, Tandoori Lamb Cutlets and Pham's Beef Curry. There is just so much...good food served here. Credit where credit is due, I have to mention the chefs who were responsible for making my meal memorable! Chef Lucaz, Gurpreet, Pham, Derrick, Anil and Goia just did an amazing job on making sure the food was top notch and the highlight of my meal was the special of the night, Pham's Beef Curry. That was just so amazing. Also, not to mention the amazing service I get by all the staff, Tim, Jessica, Zoe, Angel and the whole team took great care of us and just made the whole dining experience memorable. I will definitely still be reccomending this place to my friends as I know that the food here will always be good and remain a reliable place to get good food in Sydney.More

Came here on a wet and wild Thursday night when staying at the nearby Sofitel. Due to delayed flights we felt like a late'ish casual bite to eat so decided on the bar at The Ternary. It was fairly quiet in the bar when we...arrived (about 8.30pm) so grabbed a leaner with a nice view of the harbour. We shared calamari and chicken dim sum which were both delicious. Staff were reasonably friendly and drinks ok'ish in price for a hotel bar. Safe option, good food, great views.More

It could be 5 stars, but their price will make me give 4. Have to say that their food is very good and their service as well, but unfortunatelly paying 55 dollars for a steak is a bit much for me, especially in Sydney where...you can find great steaks for half of this price. But if for you this is not a problem I totally recomend you to go to there! 27/02/2020More

Depends how fast you can walk. Don't get a taxi, as Sydney is in abit of a mess. Walk around there around 20 minutes. With our gorgeous weather take a stroll.
