Lankan Filling Station is shaking things up and ensuring you've got the chance to start your week with some top-notch buryani. The Darlinghurst diner is opening on Mondays from October 9, and also shifting its regular buryani night to the start of the week. To celebrate, O Tama Carey and the crew are hosting a series of guest chefs every Monday afterwards for the rest of the year.

Usually, buyriani nights see Lankan Filling Station whip up the signature saffron-scented rice in a chatty pot and serve it with a weekly curry, plus raita, sambol and papadums. Now, each week during the chef series, a talented figure from across Sydney's hospitality scene will arrive at the Riley Street kitchen to put their own spin on the menu.

The first four guests have been announced: Mat Lindsay (A.P Bakery, Ester and Poly); Pasi Petanen (Cafe Paci); Jin Sun Son, Seung Kee Son, Kenny Son and Youmee Jeon (Sang by Mabasa); and Jemma Whiteman and Matt Young (Ante) — it's a real who's who of our best restaurants in Sydney list.

The restaurant has also teased writer Danielle Alvarez (ex-Freds) and Baba's Place's Jean-Paul El Tom as future featured chefs as part of the series.

The special guest set menu will be available for $65 and can be shared between two people. Or, if you want to go all out, there will be an OTT banquet available each Monday for $85. The regular Lankan Filling Station menu will also be available, and you can expect a special bespoke drink to also pop up each week, matching each chef's unique creations.
