Steakhouse
They say: “where there’s smoke, there’s fire”. In the case of LP’s Quality Meats, there’s definitely a whole lot of hot stuff smoldering away behind sliding glass doors, down an otherwise quiet lane, tucked away in Sydney’s up and coming neighbourhood of Chippendale.

At the heart of LP’s Quality Meats pumps a Southern Pride Smoker shipped straight from Tennessee. This beast of a machine creates quality, smoked meats and treats under the watchful and masterful control of eponymous and renowned head-chef/owner, Luke Powell.

Although smoked and cured meats are the headline attractions, LP’s has something for everyone with an ever-changing menu of simple, made-from-scratch dishes designed to share with drinks from the exclusive and extensive drinks menu.

For a guaranteed good time with family and friends, just following the smoke signals down the lane ways of Chippendale to LP’s Quality Meats.

Fabulous. You need to be a fan of meats as the name suggests but the food is rustic yet made with some serious talent. Home made (by that I mean ever made your own salumi over several months anyone?) and delicious. I wanted to eat the whole menu so I'll have to go back. The staff are wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable. It is loud so be prepared to shout a little but that just adds to the fun.

The Entrees were great, the Porchetta had a great crackling, but was a little fatty ... The Rib Eye also seemed 25% fat which was disappointing (especially when paying by weight!), but was excellently cooked.

Overall a little expensive $400 for 4 with 3 entrees and 3 mains.

The rib eye steak was amazing, it paired really well with the creamed spinach. The service was fantastic and the recommendations for dessert were spot on (try the bread and butter pudding!)

This is my second visit and was slightly disappointed that the sirloin was overcooked and the sides were burnt.
I was introduced to LP's when I came here a week ago. I was very impressed with the food then, particularly the sirloin steak.

Fantastic dinner, absolutely black magic what they manage to do getting such a stunning Smokey flavour through the meat while at the same time keeping it super moist. Can’t wait to come back.

The Smokey meats and amazing flavors of every course we had in the banquet blew our minds! Definitely best value and way to go to try lots of their dishes is with the banquet if dining with four or more people!!

I booked a birthday dinner for my boyfriend at LP's, who was very happy with his 900g rib eye steak to share between the two of us.
The service on the night was fantastic, our server was very helpful. I have a dairy allergy and found her very helpful with what could be adapted on the menu to suit.
Overall a really good night.

Great food and wine, easy to book.
The only thing I found annoying was the several reminders about how long we had left in the sitting. I get the business idea of the 2 sittings but it so takes away from the occasion it would make me pause and think before going back.

LP's simply has delicious food. Don't expect particularly innovative pairings or avant-garde presentation: instead expect well cooked and truly savoury meats that will be incredibly satisfying. While meat is what most people expect here, LP's also serves fantastic BBQ octopus. Over the years I've had two different BBQ octopus dishes here, and funny enough both my partner and I come back whenever we are craving for that octopus.

The main attraction here is meat, as you would expect. There are several different options available (portions are large, so to try them all you'll need a larger group), all of which are good. The surprise standouts for me are the sausages and chicken. Alongside the showier beef or pork options on offer, LP's more affordably priced sausages and chicken options are wonderfully full of flavour and pair well with the three sauces on offer. The smoked prime rib has a smoked flavour and is very well cooked; however as it is served in a very thick slice there is the potential to bite into very large chunks of fat (this issue is avoided in more traditional thin slices of prime rib).

The restaurant is dark and often buzzing with boisterous groups: this could be a positive or negative depending on your preferences. It is excellently suited for a get together with the mates or family, but it can be difficult to hear your dinner companions if it is a busy night or if you don't talk too loudly.

The meat was all as good as can be expected- and that is exceptional! The carpaccio starter was the best I have ever had and the rib eye was cooked to perfection- juicy but charcoaled and crusty on the outside- amazing!

The waitstaff are that type that send the cost up (in a good way), we had too much food (but got a doggy bag) and too many drinks! Also recommended a great bar for us to go to after so all things were on point.

We sat at the bar and it was a cold night, al the only downfall was that every time the automatic door open, we got a cold gust of air, so we were quite cold all night.

But that is minor when the food is this good.

Want to go back!

We booked for a relaxing dinner after arriving from Brisbane. Plane delayed and we arrived 10 minutes late at 8:55pm. Staff were very understanding and catered to everything we asked for. Food was again very tasty. I only wish there were more restaurants similar in Brisbane.

Restaurant was very disappointing. We were informed promptly after arrival at our booked table that 4 of 8 main dishes were no longer available. That is, half of the main course menu was not available despite a long standing booking being in place. This was an extremely disappointing experience and I would encourage anyone wishing to go not to get your hopes up beforehand.

We'll be coming back! 5 stars for food quality the smoked beef & smoked lamb ribs were so moist and flavorful! Caesar salad presented differently using whole Romaine lettuce leaves and finely grated cheese, very light and tasty. I only gave 4 stars for ambiance because it's not a fancy setting, with comfortable bench seating - but you're going there for the food, not ambiance. A bit out of the way, not in a trendy area but again you're not paying for that either. Well worth the 10-minute walk from Central station!

I had been here once before and knew that the food was amazing, but all of my other friends were dining here for the first time. I made some recommendations which they were initially a bit apprehensive about (e.g. some of them weren't fans of paté generally), but once the food came and they tried it, everything we ordered exceeded their expectations. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a standout dinner experience in Sydney!

We were a group of 7, and we ordered Sourdough and Croquettes for everyone, Paté, Boudin, Eggplant Parmigiana, Short Rib, Porchetta, Smoked Chicken, Cauliflower, and Raddichio which ended up being just about $40 per person. It was the perfect amount for a group of mostly moderate eaters and a couple of big eaters, and for me, the absolute stand-out dishes were the Paté, Boudin, Eggplant Parmigiana, and Cauliflower.

Food and service were on point. My very fussy partner assumed he wouldn't like it, or it would be over priced and was so pleased with everything he is already looking to book our next dinner there. Definitely recommended.
