Asral means relating to, emanating from, or resembling the stars if you enter this restaurant you will feel like one.

Astral is the high rolling restaurant and bar in Star City or Sydvegas.

Sitting high above the rows of poker machines and punters trying their luck on the tables, at the tip of Star City's Hotel Tower, Astral offers sensational 270 degree views of Sydney harbour and skyline.

If you have won big or fancy treating yourself to an elite fine dining experience in opulent luxury Astral is the place to do so.

Compliment the special night out by arriving in style via a water taxi to the casino.

The establishment offers a private, glass panelled, dining room for up to 20 people with a menu tailored to the host's desire or for a truly glutinous experience a degustation menu.

The AHA 2009 Chef of the Year - Sean Connolly was a star in Astral's kitchen and on TV. He was the host of SBS's My Family Feast - a celebration of food, family and the stories of life.

According to former Astral chef Connolly drew on multicultural influences to create the contemporary Australian menu.

From the Astral website: "I have been a chef for 24 years now and it's taken that long for my cooking to evolve and get to this place - layered and textural, celebrating Australia's cultural diversity."

The casino is currently undertaking an $860 refurbishment that will include a new hotel with restaurants to open next year.

If you would like to treat yourself and take in the spectacular views yet you are on a budget Astral Bar has an extensive wine and cocktail list for a liquid meal.
