Shop 6010/11 Westfield Bondi Junction
500 Oxford St
Bondi Junction, Sydney
Zilver restaurant has been drawing crowds at it’s Haymarket location for a long time now. Now the Zilver Group has expanded and opened this big and beautiful place at Westfield Bondi. It’s in the more glamorous part of the centre, away from the busier shops, so it doesn’t really feel like you are in a shopping centre. There is a lounge area outside the restaurant which is perfect for a pre-dinner drink.
We walked in past a sea of floral tributes, to an impressive bar area covered with glasses. Instinctively, we took one and went in to check out the venue. It’s such a big space with floor to ceiling glass at the back, overlooking Bondi Junction, with a private dining area which can be curtained off from the crowd. A steady stream of people arrived in dressy attire – owners, media, celebrities and politicians and the place soon filled up.
Then a particular favourite of Dame M's came by – little Peking duck pancakes. Soooo good! Crispy skin duck on the inside with hoisin sauce and shallots in soft wrapping! Apparently the other guests loved them too as they quickly disappeared.
The prawn hargow were succulent and delicious and the skewers with marinated beef and shitake mushrooms were also super tasty as well.
We also both loved the beautifully crispy honey prawns. Dame M thought everything was so delicious and Dame J eagerly agreed.
Those Dames, who review for Sir and Mlady Dine Out, dined as guests of Zilver. Big thanks to Zoe O'Sullivan of Sibling Agency for this invitation.
