Another five eateries have been announced for Sydney’s new inner city food precinct at Darling Square, opening in April 2018.

Ex-Nobu Tokyo chef Kokubo Yuji brings a carefully crafted Japanese menu to the kitchen at BangBang, a Japanese whisky and craft beer bar serving ramen and curry. Inspired by the back streets of Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, BangBang will also feature a private karaoke dining room.


Joining BangBang is Gyradiko Bexley, serving up authentic Greek pork gyros, and Surry Hills favourite The Sandwich Shop, with a menu of sandwiches, wraps, salads, coffee and organic sodas.

Matcha-Ya will brew authentic Japanese green tea using real matcha powder sourced from Japan. The matcha-infused menu includes lattes, fondue, parfait and soft serve, plus a range of range of savoury lunch and dinner dishes.


From the team behind Two Sticks, Bun Gallery and Kobe Wagyu Yakiniku, Ricefields will offer a casual spin on authentic Sichuan food, with a focus on ingredients preserved through pickling, salting and drying.

These five eateries will join Toby’s Estate Coffee Roasters, 8Bit, Fishbowl, Belles Hot Chicken, and Marrickville Pork Roll on Steam Mill Lane at Darling Square.


Once fully completed in 2019, Darling Square will be made up of small laneways and narrow streets connecting communal open spaces, bars, restaurants and cafés, located between Haymarket, ICC Sydney and Paddy’s Markets.
