Alchemy Polish Cafe RestaurantAlchemy Polish Cafe Restaurant
$$$$
Polish | Surry Hills, Sydney / New South Wales

Alchemy is a cosy, elegant, yet unpretentious place known for its choice of delicate and light meals from the traditional Polish cuisine. Restaurant is famous for its freshly-made traditional Polish dumplings (pierogi), goose, duck, polish borsch (barszcz czerwony) stuffed meat. Fresh flowers, tables covered by embroidered tablecloths, soft light and unobtrusive smooth jazz music create a very special atmosphere. After the sunset, soothing candle lights and romantic chandelier lights deepen the inimitable atmosphere of this place. Alchemy is more than a restaurant. It is an invitation to meet Polish cuisine-fine, intelligent, drawing on tradition, and at the same time served in contemporary setting. Alchemy may be called an embassy of Polish cuisine and Polish soul.More

The old city of Jerusalem will be transported to the streets of Sydney.
