The contemporary aesthetic of Two Noble, designed by the local interior designer Pip Johnson, pays homage to the Asian-inspired cuisine. The space, adorned with organic materials, suspended lanterns, and curated artwork, radiates warmth and comfort. Soft greens, natural timber, and fluted glass create a palette that instantly makes you feel relaxed and at home.

The team behind Two Noble chose the crane as a symbol for their dining experience. A crane represents happiness, good fortune, wisdom, and eternal youth. Much like these social creatures, the Two Noble experience aims to bring people together, surrounded by delicious food and drinks, in a harmonious and uniquely comfortable dining space.

And fear not, they cater to various dietary requirements – nothing is holding you back from diving into the Two Noble experience yourself. So, why wait? Head down and immerse yourself in a dining adventure that promises good vibes, great company, and unforgettable flavours. 

And if all that wasn’t convincing enough, Two Noble has just been awarded a Chef’s Hat by The Australian Good Food Guide – so you know it’s going to be good!

Two Noble is located at Level 2, 2 Noble Street, Newtown and is open Monday & Thursday: 6 pm – late, Friday – Sunday: 12 pm – 2:30 pm & 5:30 pm – late. Find out more and book your visit here
