2153 Restaurant - The Hills College
Western Sydney Institute understands that students studying Hospitality courses need to be exposed to real work-based experiences, like the pressures of working in a busy restaurant. Our fine dining restaurants are operated by our students as part of their training.
Western Sydney Institute's four restaurants provide experience for both front and back of house, and food and beverage service. Open for lunch and for dinner (on selected days) during term time they operate in the same way as any commercial restaurant. Training restaurants include the latest techniques, menus and highest quality foods. Students display a high level of customer service in all they do.
