A Turkish restaurant on Sydney’s busy Enmore Road has been evacuated after catching fire.
Flames broke out inside the Sultan’s Table restaurant chimney just after 7.30pm tonight, powering their way through the building’s roof and causing 10 diners to flee.
Sydneysider Renee Sundgren said she was sitting across the road eating ice-cream when she heard a “very” loud noise.
“It was a big bang and the whole sky lit up,” she said.
“The whole roof was heavily on fire.
“I went over to the restaurant next door to tell them Sultan’s was on fire, so they could turn their kitchen off.”
Ms Sundgren said the ordeal attracted massive crowds.
She said one of the diners told her the staff yelled “grab your drinks and leave”.
The whole of Enmore Road was closed, causing major disruption to the busy dining drag.
Everyone inside the building was accounted for and no injuries were reported.
Investigations into what caused the fire are underway.
