lIKE NOTHING YOU'VE TRIED BEFORE 

Introducing the new mod-Asian concept from the team behind Xage. Our focus is on comfort food with a twist. We're introducing to Sydney the exciting flavours of "Asian pasta" - pasta, but with greater emphasis on umami (flavour). From Thai spaghetti, to Vietnamese nui, to Japanese wafu pasta, Bar Pestâ is bringing to Sydney the exciting mash-up flavours of what we call "Asian pasta".

Bar Pestâ's menu also features some classic mains from Xage, such as the famous salt & sichuan pepper squid and slow-cooked beef curry, in homage to the decade-old former restaurant at this location.

It's quality and taste like you won't find anywhere else.

Pestâ means to "crush" or "pound" in the Genoese dialect in Italy, from which the word pesto is thought to have derived. It refers to the use of a mortar and pestle to make pesto. This implement - used to crush and pound herbs and spices - also feels right at home in Asian kitchens.
