Serving traditional Asian cuisine with a modern twist, Sergeant Lok places an emphasis on fresh seafood and seasonal ingredients through its wide range of Asian spices.
The building that today houses Sergeant Lok has a long and fascinating history. The subject site was the location of Australia’s first hospital which operated from 1788, however less than a decade later it was pulled down and relocated due to re-alignment of George Street.
The Rocks precinct had a notorious reputation for trouble and violence stretching back to its colonial beginnings as an early trading port and as such, tenders were called for the erection of a police station in 1881. Designed by James Barnet and built by W. Cains and Sons, the police station building was one of two major stations in the city of Sydney from the 1880s and is the only one of these two to survive. Modifications to the building since the 1880s have been minor only and as such, it retains much of its original form and detail internally and externally.
Guests can embrace the rich history of this wonderful building in unique dining and drinking spaces created in former holding cells, charge rooms, muster room and offices. The cells retain many of their early fixtures including metal cell doors and window grilles.
Whether you're joining us for a bite to eat off the bar snack menu or dining off the the indulgent a la carte menu, Sergeant Lok takes pride in creating innovative flavour combinations and invites guests to experience the very best in Modern Asian cuisine in this truly unique building.
