As their name suggests, Kafe Kooks take pride in doing things differently. And that's exactly what has made them a treasured member of Sydney's dining community.

This is roti, but not as you know it! Moulding their very own cuisine that pivots around the humble roti, Kafe Kooks are offering a whole new world of flavours that are best enjoyed in their European-style bistro... like we said, they don't play by the books! Occupying a beautiful, ornate building, they've leant into its original features by complimenting the exterior with charming bistro furniture that is an exact colour match. Inside, you'll fall in love with their intimate, optimistic vibe that bathes in the natural light from outside and keeps things fresh and open with potted greens, rustic furniture and gorgeous artwork.

Simply put, Kafe Kooks will be your new hangout in no time, and not just because of the atmosphere. We're here for roti-wrapped deliciousness! You'll find rotis brimming with classic curries like butter chicken, beef rendang and turmeric fish. They've even gone as far as presenting their own version of the toasted sandwich which they call a Madtarbak, featuring chilli tuna, mother & daughter (yes chicken and egg) as well as their take on the classic Cubano with roast pork, smoked ham, Swiss cheese and pickles.

As for other tastes of Asia, have your fill of Korean fried chicken, wasabi prawns from Japan, chicken satay and Thai beef curry with a refreshing cucumber relish. And let's not forget the dessert rotis inspired by the bustling streets of Bangkok either! Have your dessert roti with banana and coconut condensed milk, sugary crushed peanuts or a Nutella and banana version.

Is the roti the new sliced bread? Kafe Kooks is making a very strong case!
