The double-tap savvy folk at OpenTable have rounded up some of the most Instagrammable interiors and dining spaces to visit around the country.

And after this, we will be well and truly ready for lunch.

Sydney

Chin Chin

Chin Chin restaurant opens their doors daily from 11 am and runs until late into the night, seven days a week.

With a focus on South-East Asian cuisine and with Benjamin Cooper at the helm as executive chef, this is both a visual masterpiece and diner’s delight.

Chin Chin’s photogenic and iconic neon pink bunny ears sign will go down almost as well on your social channels as their deliciously creamy coconut curry will with satisfying your appetite.

Nour

Nour is built on a dream by the owners to create a venue that is the perfection of interior design and food that presents classic Lebanese flavours in a fresh, exciting way.

Nour uses an unrestricted approach to create food that is vibrant and bold, yet not too overwhelming.

With shades of millennial pink mixed in with hues of off-white and rose gold, Nour is a ‘double-tap’ worthy venue that is guaranteed to go down a treat on your Insta feed.
