Mother's day is that special day that comes around once a year. This year on Sunday 13th May, mums across Sydney will have a break from cooking, cleaning and doing the washing up.
Before you put on an apron and get out the cook books check out my list of Mother's Day lunch venues. Of course Mother's Day is one of the year's busiest days for restaurants, so be quick to make a booking.
1. Efendy – Treat your mum to something deliciously different this Mother's Day. Located near Balmain, in a beautifully restored Victorian mansion, this Turkish restaurant will be sure to please.
