Interesting mix of japanese restaurant and jazz bar. Enjoyable food, good jazz, drinks incl cocktail all for only just over $100 for two. Great to see somewhere where the jazz starts at a reasonable time. Will be back for sure o.

A jazz diner in which you can barely hear the jazz (sadly, because I think the music was good), and unless you were a known local, you received very poor service. My starter wasn't even warm, & my main course never appeared! They still insisted I pay for the poor starter. Don't even think of going there.

I hadn't heard a whole lot about 1912, so I wasn't too sure what to expect. The Japanese Jazz fusion really works! The venue is dimly lit, with a delicious menu and great entertainment. Good date night location. Would come back again.

Absolutely loved this restaurant! Was on a trip with my boyfriend in Sydney and came across this restaurant. It looked interesting as you had to go down some stairs to enter it off the main street. The menu was very modern and the presentation supported this! The food was amazing, I had the pork and loved it- was a dish... More

The fusion between a Jazz Club and a Japanese restaurant is interesting. We did not try the food but I will certainly do that next time. Would be the perfect place to bring a date.

My husband and I found 1912 accidentally when going for a drink after work. We went into the basement for a glass of wine. The jazz music provided a cruisy, sophisticated atmosphere and the service was some of the best we have experienced. We were clearly in only for drinks, so the waitresses bought some appetizers over for us, which... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
