Crane Bar is locates in kings cross, quite close to public transport which is handy as parking is difficult in this area. The bar itself doesn’t look like much from the outside but the moment you head on in jt just opens up to this beautiful (what appears to be) Japanese themed bar that is split over multiple rooms.The bar people are very friendly and the canapés I had were the best I’ve had in a long time!!! Try the Miso Barramundi... TRY IT....Easy 5/5 for me
Bought this as part of Groupon and loved it. We started with truffle salt edamame, Gyoza, dimsum, karaage, beef tataki, prawn dynamite sushi roll and vegetable tempura. Apart from the dimsum, food were all great. Service was on a slower side, ordered beer a couple of times and never arrived so left it at that. Venue is spacious and quirky.
Booked the 8 course degustation meal using a Red Balloon voucher on January 11... The concept of Japanese Fusion was quite a tempting lure, so expectations were high as we love our Japanese food and having been to Japan, finding comparable flavours back here is one of our most enjoyable pastimes. Hence our criticism of disappointment for this place is no small assertion. It started off well with the flavours fresh and exotic even though the ingredients were uniquely Australian... finger limes with Kingfish sashimi was our favourite. The barramundi in foil was the real killer and it just could not get better from there. I mean, fair enough that it was meant to be a fusion of Japanese flavours with something else, but this attempt was a complete failure being that it was exactly into that, an attempt at fusing two different flavours into the one with no technique or seeming care as to how it turned out. Had there been any technique to it then it would have shown, or had there been any attention to flavour then we would have tasted it. Barramundi has a distinct texture and flavour and so any chef, worth their salt, would pay attention to how they would prepare it to allow for that distinct flavour to stand out. This was wrapped in foil and drowned with a range of flavours turning it into a mocktail of fusioned aromas, rather than a unique dish of fusion cuisine. One would think that it was actually salmon and not barramundi by the look and colour of it. Had the beef been treated the same way, drowned with various flavours and served as the one sauce, then I would have walked out of there immediately but we continued to persevere in the hopes that dessert would at least make up for those failures and level out the score to at least not being a loss. I mean serving the soup and sushi together and counting it as being two dishes out of the 8, really showed the whole thing to be without class. The dessert came and just by looking at it, we thought the meal was saved! One spoonful of each piece was all we ate... I can't bear to relive that taste!!! When our hostess asked our opinion, we gave it to her straight with the hopes that it would be constructive and hence make the chef more aware so that others after us would have a better experience. Now, judging from Robert Baliva's review, when he went there a month ago, there were some changes. You can note this from the photos. And based on the fact that some effort was made to improve, I decided to put my review to give it some comparison. So the 2 Stars is for the first 3 dishes that were simply awesome, the remaining stars just could not be earned, even with so called free drinks.
