A stylish restaurant that brings Middle Eastern cuisine to The Rocks.

Modern meets traditional at Tayim, the stylish Middle Eastern fusion restaurant in The Rocks. Stunning sandstone interiors meet a menu that’s a rich blend of cultures, created by Head Chef Ran Kimelfeld.

Enjoy bold, exotic share plates, cooked using traditional methods on the open grill, or try a reimagined classic like roasted figs paired with radicchio, goats cheese and chardonnay dressing. The seasonal wine cocktail offering is one to fall in love with too, carefully curated to compliment the spice and earthiness of the menu by GM Reuvin Lim and his team. 

Suez Canal - 34 Harrington Street, The Rocks

Suez Canal was another one of the notorious streets of The Rocks in the 19th century, mainly due to its narrow passageway and its darkness before street lighting.

In memory of this seedy reputation a number of cut-out figures have been attached to the walls. They are reproductions of cartoon characters taken from newspapers of the late nineteenth century which depict some of the characters of The Rocks. These characters are generally called “larrikins”, the rough element of society at the time who roamed around The Rocks looking for mischief. Their women-folk were known as “donnahs” and were particularly noted for their large hats with large feathers. The cartoons were generally done by notable artists of the time particularly the early Australian artist Norman Lindsay.
