I should start by saying I went to Bills with very high expectations. The food was nice, well cooked. I had a chicken salad type thing, my partner had a burger. However it didn't really blow me away. Staff were friendly.

We ate here on a Saturday evening for the first time, and given the status and reputation had expectations that were definitely not met. The wait staff were very courteous and helpful, but the rest of our dining experience left much to be desired. We were given a wine list that was surprisingly limited, only to be told that the...

This is by far one of the greatest brunch/ breakfast spot! The ricotta pancakes are a must have. Never had anything like them before!

Our ritual final breakfast before flying home after Mardi Gras. Great little table inside, waiter places water glasses on the table, but no water for 10minutes, coffee was on point, again the waiter drops our meals off, but no cutlery. 5 mins of trying to wave him down, we gave up and got them ourselves. A great breakfast overall, left... More

I have been wanting to try the ricotta hotcakes and was a bit disappointed, I've heard they are amazing - maybe that was the case a few years ago but I was quite let down, they were ordinary pancakes with not much ricotta and far too expensive!!! My friends ordered the wagu burgers which they didn't think were very good.... More

On a day visit to the city and my girlfriend had eaten at Bill's the night before and knowing I loved Bill's TV ccoking shows we decided to dine at Bill's Surry Hills. We arrived a bit early for dinner menu so had a pre-dinner drinks. We asked for recommendations and decided on the Yellow Fish Curry and Sticky Chilli... More

Was recommended by my son's friend. Great news is we had 20% discount off food, not beverage. So it wasn't too pricey with that discount. Heard Chef is some celebrity chef so expectation for food is high. I must say yes all we ordered was actually pretty good, chicken snitzel was great and it went well with corn. My steak... More

If I'd just had a coffee this would have been a four star rating, on account of the very good service and excellent coffee. Sadly, the famous ricotta hotcakes bring it down to three stars. They were served with fresh banana, syrup and honeycomb butter - all very nice accompaniments. My standard for an excellent ricotta hotcake is a light... More

My wife and I both begin fans of Bill Grangers cook books just had to try out another one of his establishments whilst in Sydney and once again we were not disappointed. My wife's yellow fish curry was so to her tastes creamy, mild and flavoursome with succulent fish and my chilli pork belly was to die for, sticky succulent... More

Description
Bills Surry Hills opened under the hotel on Crown Street in 1996. A great spot - since then, Surry Hills has transformed itself from a quiet rag-trade area of Sydney to the centre of the city's media and arts communities and its restaurant hot-spot. The open kitchen at bills Surry Hills is lively and fun all day: locals pick up their coffee or fresh juice on the way to work; friends chat over brunch; business lunches are held next to prams, backpacks and the occasional celebrity; and neighbourhood families drop in for an easy dinner.
