WIP is another awesome venue owned by Merivale Group. WIP is a very small and pretty casual dumpling joint in Sydney CBD (right next to Bistro de CBD Hotel). The whole venue is extremely relaxed with a very unusual feel to it.. Very rock and roll and a bit “unmerivale”, but you will probably get the best dumplings in the city at WIP, food is fantastic! If you are looking for something different at your lunch break or for dinner with mates, then this is perfect!
I had a quite large group of people with me so we ended up with a private room. Here is the interior so you get the idea of the ” unusual feel” i mentioned earlier. It’s like an underground Asian mafia kinda of venue. Dumplings and beer all night for us, please!
Is this a date night venue? Not really, it is too casual for date, unless it’s “Let’s just be friends” kinda date or a simple and quick Tinder date.Food is delicious but the surroundings are a bit rough, this venue will suit you if you have that kind of personality or if your date is artsy, low maintenance or punky kinda girl 🙂
