Tharen's is not quite the place for a romantic dinner date, however the unique concept ensures a fun, carefree mood at any hen's night, party or work event. As Sydney's first fancy dress restaurant, patrons are provided with all manner of props, wigs and outfits by costumed waiters; you could be anyone from Snow White to Dracula. The Parisian inspired décor creates a parlour-like vibe, with gold and blue renaissance style wallpaper and gilt-framed mirrors reminiscent of the Moulin Rouge. If this doesn't encourage you to have a little fun, the magicians that entertain with magic tips and tricks throughout your meal surely will.

Tharen's offers a three course al a carte menu sectioned into ‘Taste Me', ‘Eat Me', ‘Lick Me' and ‘Drink Me'. The focus is on comforting, good value Modern Australian dishes designed to please everyone. Dine on the likes of tuna tartare with avocado salsa, crispy wontons and wasabi mayo for entree, to braised lamb shanks with creamy parmesan polenta cakes, carrots and shallots for main. Gingerbread brulee with mascat poached strawberries and almond foam makes for a happy ending. The wine list features a range of well-priced by-the-glass options as well as some pricier bottles, for special celebratory occasions.
