A fire that broke out in a Sydney restaurant over the weekend has left two men in hospital and closed a major intersection for almost three hours.

The two men suffered smoke inhalation from a fire that originated from the kitchen of the three-story Seoul Ria Korean restaurant, located above the De La France caf on the corner of Sydney’s George and Goulburn streets – one of the CBD’s major intersections.
