Snack Man is a perfect venue for smaller, seated functions for up to 70 guests or canape-style events with the capacity to host up to 100 people standing.

We also have spaces like our mezzanine or outdoor dining areas that work well with smaller groups wanting a more casual affair with a bit more space/privacy. 

Our team will take the stress out of organising so you can just enjoy yourself. We can cater for any dietaries and craft a drinks experience for your guests, from beers and great affordable drops to a wine-focused event with access to our 500+ premium bottle list. 

For bookings of 22 and under, you can book here. For all groups larger than this please fill in your event details using the form and we’ll be in touch ASAP. The more information you can give us the more specific we can be with our response.

An East Street Restaurant

For bookings 12 and under you can book directly here.


We are open Tuesday to Thursday - from 4pm till late;

And Friday to Sunday - 2pm till late.

Think of Snack Man as Happy Boy’s older brother. It’s still Chinese but we have based the menu around small plates and food perfect to be eaten alongside our wall of over ~500 cuvees of our favourite wines from Europe and our list of classic cocktails.

We offer a selection of hand made dumplings made daily by our Dim Sum master as well as a selection of our favourite small plates and snacks from all over China. Don’t let “Snack” fool you, customers love to come to us for a few plates and wine but equally love coming for a full meal made up of a selection of our delicious plates.

Our main room is more darkly lit and is centred around our ceiling high wine wall. With no written wine list customers love chatting to our team and finding a hidden gem tucked away up high. 

We can fit around 70 people seated on our ground level and can do standing events for 80-100. We also have a mezzanine area which can seat groups of 10-12 and can hold standing events for around 30.

Between Kid Curry and Happy Boy, between the fairy lights on East St. 

No. We are fully licensed and specialise in the best small producer wine from everywhere outside of Australia.

Yes, within reason. At busy times we ask you to have patience and do your best to make it easy for us to split - i.e. split evenly across the table or choose an amount you have calculated per person - splitting by item is not feasible at busy times. For big groups wanting to split we suggest buying drinks at the bar and bringing in correct change to pay for your food.

If you would like to sit outside please note it on your booking comments but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate. We don't take bookings for the outside area as it is not covered or heated and we can't predict the weather. 

We are taking a prepayment of $200 for all bookings of ten or more guests. This prepayment allows us to secure your spot in the restaurant. This is a prepayment, not a booking fee, and will come off your dinner bill as a dollar discount. The prepayment is non-refundable, but in the event of a lockdown, or a change in restrictions we would of course rebook, or work with you to find a solution.

We take credit card details for all smaller bookings, and only charge in the event of a last minute cancellation (within 48 hours of your booking) or no show. Our late cancellation/no show fee is $45 per person.

Yes, we love hosting large groups and can offer either sit down options or can also host standing canape style events. Although we generally only open in the evenings, we have found customers love to host late lunch and early afternoon events at Snack Man. If this is of interest, please just note that in your enquiry.

For any group of 10 or above, we require you to partake in our Chef's Banquet (see below). You can reserve your spot online simply by heading to our bookings page.

For very large groups or private functions, please fill out our function request form, and we will get back to you within two working days with some options - if you are looking to book within the next 1-2 working days, please give us a call.

We have a $59 chef's banquet which includes an array of our favourite dishes matched to your table’s preferences and dietary requirements.

NB. The Chef varies the banquet for every table - WE DO NOT HAVE A SET BANQUET MENU. We do this because every table is different and we pride ourselves on catering for your particular preferences and requirements.

NB. You can always request one or two favourites and the chefs will take this into account when creating your banquet - however, some requests may not be possible on the night.

Yes. We take dietary requirements seriously. Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan are all part of our standard menu but we can cater for nearly all requirements if you give us notice. The kitchen does contain allergens so let us know if you have a serious allergic reaction to anything.

Yes. We charge a $2 per person cakeage fee and ask you to still keep your sitting time.

Absolutely, we have lots of space outside to accommodate tables keen to drink with us before or after dinner. If you are a larger group please do note it on your booking or enquiry so we can make sure to hold some space for you.

East, Bridge and Church Streets have lots of street parking. Ann and Wickham Streets have even more but watch out for clearways on weekdays till ~7pm, and parking meters until 10pm. There are paid secure parking garages under the Calile Hotel and at the M&A building, both within walking distance of East Street.

Yes, we do… we love hosting parties and large group dinners. The fact you love our restaurants enough to choose us for a special occasion is fantastic but the fact you are introducing lots of new potential customers to your favourite spot is even better.

Between the three venues along East street and the adjoining outdoor areas, we can accommodate just about any type of function or large group eg. Snack Man is great for groups up to 100 (stand-up/canape style), while Kid Curry is perfect for a more intimate, seated event. Happy Boy is loved for a long table dinner for a special occasion. We’ve even done a range of wedding receptions at Snack Man and Happy Boy. 

If you are interested please fill out the form and we will get back to you within 1-2 business days.

No sorry, we don't, our handmade dumplings and smaller plates do not do well in takeaway containers. Our next door neighbour, Happy Boy, does great takeaway and you can order here.
