We were given recommendations to visit Kepos and were very excited to eat there on our first night in Sydney. We had a reservation for when they opened and we were seated promptly. Realize the seating area is tiny and there really is no table for 5 people, but we squeezed a chair on the end of a 4-top to make it work. Service was impeccable. We ordered a number of dishes to share. The first dish was the hummus and it was amazing. Maybe the best hummus ever. Sadly, the wheels came off from there. Falafel was overfried and had no flavor. Dates with goat cheese and crumbled pistachio were just that..plain and simple and designed to be cold. Nothing really elevated.Cauliflower salad was good. Grilled prawns were just grilled prawns. Chips (French fries) with a garlic aioli tasted fishy (so I wonder if they reused oil or an unclean pan?) and no other discernible seasoning. Potato tortellini with goat cheese was underwhelming. Think we had another dish or two but not memorable. Given the restaurant takes some effort to find and the meal was unremarkable I would say go somewhere else.
