Ms.G's is a new, innovative, trendy restaurant located in the heart of Sydney's restaurant and nightlife district. The three-storey bar-restaurant is located on Victoria Street; just minutes walk from King's Cross train station.
The food is a display of Sydney's fine dining new-age Asian fusion at its best, an array of meticulously presented salad, seafood and meat share plates. The Calamari and Snow Crab Salad with Yuzu and Miso Ranch Dressing Filet Mignon is a meal not to be missed.
Stoner's Delight" is a dessert the restaurant is notoriously known for, comprised of a close to ridiculous medley of sweet and savoury.
The service isn't bad, although as it's a non-booking restaurant, customers are subject to waiting up to an hour or more. Customers are usually advised to wait on the top floor at the bar, serving cocktails out of iconic bubble-tea inspired plastic cups. The drinks menu is far from conventional, with unique combinations of fruits and spices emanating into hearty beverages.
The atmosphere of Ms.G's is laidback and close-knit, yet the kooky design still emits a vibe of prestige and charm. Newspaper-stack and beer carton tables compliment the design, without affecting the natural look of the place. The design is rustic yet beautifully mastered, with eccentric wall pieces that feel habitual while dining.
Customers feel as though they've stepped into a trendy, back street, exclusive bar straight out of New York or Melbourne, yet still remaining close to home.
I LOVE the Stoner's Delight. Probably the most delicious dessert I've had in a very long time! I definitely didn't enjoy waiting for a table for two hours, but in the end it was worth it. And I do recommend going early - I'd suggest 6pm or earlier.
Another trendy, pretentious and probably overpriced flavour of the month. I will never eat at a place so up itself that it won't accept bookings. In six months they'll be begging for bookings and in twelve months they'll probably be just a memory as the trendy set have long moved on to newer pastures.
