Nour and Henrietta restaurateur Ibby Moubadder is expanding his Sydney footprint to Parramatta.
LILYMU will open its doors on 21 October in the new Parramatta Square precinct, joining Ciccia Bella, Fishbowl, Betty’s Burgers and more.
“We’ve had such success with our restaurants Nour and Henrietta and we wanted to continue that success as we move to our newest location in the Parramatta Square precinct,” says Moubadder.
Former Mr Wong chef Brendan Fong is heading up the kitchen, and has curated a menu influenced by Chinese and South East Asian cuisines.
Dishes include tom yum prawn dumplings, XO pippies with kaffir lime and scampi red curry with betel levels.
“We believe that a restaurant is as much about the ambience, good conversation and laughter, as it is about the quality of food and wine, so we’re thrilled to be expanding our portfolio to include LILYMU, a contemporary Asian restaurant,” says Moubadder.
The venue will also feature a full-service bar offering wine and beer alongside cocktails including the Dragon Sour (gin, lillet rose, dragon fruit syrup, Thai basil leaves, fresh lime and egg whites) and the Fiery Passion (Thai chilli-infused tequila blanco, yuzushu sake, Aperol, lemon, passionfruit and agave).
The 160-seat venue features a vast dining area, outdoor space and a private dining room.
LILYMU will open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday and for lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday.
