The Universal Restaurant is nice little place with a hot reputation situated in the midst of Darlinghust's Little Italy… the fierce Darlinghurst restaurant market can be a tough nut to crack, but the relatively new Universal (some of the restaurants on this strip have been in business for generations) seems to have done it, picking up rave reviews along the way, with a 2 hats award in the 2009 SMH Good Food Guide. The tables are filled comfortably most nights, with diners tucking into a diverse and fashionable modern Australian menu.
