Sydney, NSW

Some may think it's a little risky to open a Modern Asian tapas restaurant right next door to a Japanese Izakaya. But in Sydney, risk-taking is on the rise, and with the promise of Asian comfort food at wallet-pleasing prices, we are all for it. What was once the fun Latin American eatery El Capo on Waterloo Street, Surry Hills is now home to ho.mei (aka homei or delicious in Chinese). This humbly dressed space offers an evolving tapas menu of Modern Asian share plates by Chef Thomas Ly and a relaxed dining environment, with Romi Kwan manning front of house operations.

This Restaurant is BYO wine on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

I love this restaurant. The food is really delicious, the staff are very friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. I really enjoyed the banquet which was just perfect with so many amazing flavours and a great way to try a little bit of every thing. I recommend this restaurant for sure.

This is just what we needed in this little part of Surry Hills. A happy, friendly and cosy Chinese restaurant. Love that you can take away or just pop in for a quick bite and not feel out of place. The dishes are different without being too fancy and arty. Just the right mix. Nice wine list too.
