Turkish restaurant Sultan’s Table Enmore Rd Sydney fire: diners forced to flee

A fire broke out during dinner service at a popular Sydney restaurant, forcing diners to flee into the street to escape the blaze.

A popular Turkish restaurant in Sydney was evacuated during dinner service on Tuesday evening after a fire engulfed the building.

The fire broke out at the Sultan’s Table in Enmore just after 7.30pm, with flames coming from the roof of the building.

Ten people dining at the restaurant were forced to flee into the street to escape the fire, which broke out in the chimney

This is not the first time a fire has broken out at Sultan’s Table restaurant.

Twitter users have reported a fire at the Enmore Road establishment on two other occasions in the past decade.

Crowds descended on the busy shopping street and watched flames engulf the building.

A local woman, Renee Sundgren, told Nine News she was eating ice cream across the road when she heard a loud noise.

“It was a big bang and the whole sky lit up,” she said.

“The whole roof was heavily on fire.”

A restaurant told Ms Sundgren they were told to ‘take your drinks and leave’.

“I went to the restaurant next door to tell them the Sultan was on fire, so they could put out their kitchen.”

Enmore Rd was closed as emergency services worked to put out the flames.

There were no injuries in the incident and everyone was found.

Investigations are underway into the causes of the fire.
