A man has been filmed striking two women in the face outside a restaurant in a popular nightclub precinct.
Footage shared online shows a group of more than a dozen well-dressed men and women congregating out the front of a Rashays restaurant in Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
A man with a bum bag slung around his neck can be seen arguing with two women before slapping one of them in the face.
Horrified by the disturbing attack, other women start screaming and lunging towards him, prompting another male to step forward and yank him out of their way.

A second clip taken moments later shows a chaotic brawl erupting among the group, with two women laying on the ground while another female pummels them in the head.
Several other woman can be seen pulling at the aggressor’s hair, trying to rip her away from the females cowering on the floor.
Meanwhile, another woman wearing a black dress swings her fist at the man with the bum bag.
He blocks her arm and launches a punch into her face, propelling her back several metres.
A woman in a blue dress jumps between them, urging the man to move on before holding off another woman in a white dress charging towards him screaming, in defence of her friend who was punched.
Diners from the restaurant watched from the door as screams rang out through out the arcade.
The video was posted on Twitter on Monday night but it remains unclear when the incident occurred.
A NSW Police spokesperson said an altercation on Monday night is yet to be reported to police but the footage is currently under investigation.
