Lankan Filling Station


If you're on the hunt for top-notch Sri Lankan cuisine in Sydney, then Lankan Filling Station is a pretty good place to start. Founded by O Tama Carey, the small but perfectly formed restaurant (which takes the place of a disused garage) can be found on Riley Street, just a short stroll from Hyde Park. 

Diners are jam-packed together within the narrow space, with tiny tables quickly becoming laden with feasts of flavour and colour. The evening menu is made up of creamy dhals, sweet and sour sambols and fiery fish curries. And, of course, no dinner here would be complete without a portion of hoppers - the rice and coconut egg crepes that you'll no doubt have seen splashed all over your Instagram feed.

Looking for an alternative to the standard brunch of eggs and avocado? This place offers a hearty weekend menu; think roti toasties filled with bacon, alongside authentic Sri Lankan tea.
