Penrith comes to life at night
The revitalisation of Penrith’s CBD has attracted a raft of new restaurants and many of the established and most popular restaurants are keeping their doors open for dinner.
Take a stroll down bustling High St and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to dining options.
The newly opened High St Social at 562 High St is definitely worth a visit. Try their wood fire pizzas and burgers as well as imported beers and boutique wines. If you like chicken wings, then you can’t miss 50c wings on Wednesdays after 5pm and in their Burger Happy Hour you’ll get a free serve of bacon on your burger between 5-6pm from Monday to Friday. Their new beer garden, which is a great option for relaxed dining, comes alive with live music on Social Sundays.
There was excitement in the air when El Jannah announced they were coming to Penrith and since opening at 535 High St in late 2016, they have proved a popular choice for people wanting delicious charcoal chickens and Lebanese cuisine. Whether you’re dining in or taking away, you’re guaranteed to enjoy their succulent meats marinated in Middle Eastern spices and served with an impressive list of sides and salads.
If it’s the fresh flavours of Thailand you’re after, then look no further than Siam Thai at 1/560 High St. Their menu offers an array of authentic Thai meals at very reasonable prices, and their delicious selection of weekly specials offer diners great value. You can order take away or choose to dine in and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere, either way you won’t be disappointed.
Downtown Brooklyn (previously Big Poppa’s Burgers) at 269 High St are bringing the flavours of Brooklyn to Penrith. If you’re not counting calories, you’ll love their mouth-watering selection of burgers, mega shakes and loaded desserts. They also have one of the only rooftop bars in Penrith, giving diners a bird’s eye view of the City.
