Excellent vibe! All the staff were helpful and keen to give us the best experience. Food was drool worthy- we did ramen special + chicken wings with the HOT AF sauce +ranch (and being from the US- THEY DO IT RIGHT YALL!) Will definitely be back.

The Ramen was really good but there was an issue with our order so we sat there for an hour before anyone realised we had not gotten our order.

Always love coming here! My husband and I are sure this is the best fried chicken in Australia!!!
Obsessed with their Chicken & donut special with maple syrup! Reminds me of Roscoes Chicken & Waffles in Inglewood but much tastier!!
Also they made me one of the best Margaritas I’ve had! Really delicious!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Butter!

Love having a yummy dinner & drinks @Butter Surry Hills.
Have been here heeeeeeaps of times.

This time round though, service was super slow (for a quiet Wednesday evening) and had to be asked if we wanted wine glasses with the bottle of wine we ordered??? Weird.

Sorry, but this wasn't the usual experience at our beloved Butter!

Still love you guys though.

Funky, delicious food, service a bit casual (needed to flag down staff for everything) , and plenty to keep a 15 year old occupied while the grown ups chatted. I do think chips should be included!

I have to admit I thought it was an Indian Restaurant but was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was a fried chicken joint

Above and beyond. Nick served us, brought our food out and checked on us to make sure we were having a great time. Wonderful chat with Nick and Simon after we had eaten and drunk our body weight in food and whiskey. Fantastic night and service!!

I’m quite surprised that my booking for the 26th was accepted despite the restaurant being CLOSED on a public holiday.
Best part of the experience was receiving an email saying I was ‘checked in’ and now being asked to ‘review’ a restaurant that I didn’t dine at.

The food was great and the staff were super friendly. We sat outside as it was pretty loud inside and I think you’d struggle to have a conversation.

We were asked to sit outside (it was raining) and that they would come take out order in a minute. We sat out there for 20 minutes and nobody came. We went online and booked a table for 5 minutes later straight away and when we went back inside the person who seated us outside realised he forgot about us, didn’t say sorry just said, oh you can sit here now gesturing to a dirty table. Thanks.
After that everything was fine, the food was good and fast.

The food is as good as always, but the place and the service has lost quality. The tables were dirty and sticky, the menus confusing and mediocre. The staff didn't know anything about the specials.

Has changed for the worse unfortunately as I was a massive fan, Only one beer for sale (young Henry’s?) , no slaw with burgers (extra$Now ) , music isn’t the same hiphop but watered down pop rnb. No sneakers in the window which is the whole attraction to the place, nothing special anymore unfortunately . Bring back The hip hop sneaker place with Japanese beers and beats please....
