When looking for a good Thai restaurant in the Central Station/World Square area we had a lot of choices. Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant just across the street. We walked over for dinner at around 6:00 and they found us a small table in back. Note: signage is limited so finding this joint might be tricky; next to a... More

We had eaten very very well over the preceding 3 weeks, but this place, which we staggered into after a long day at the beach, was really the highlight. Starters of fish balls and spring rolls were crisply fresh and hot. My Jungle Curry was just gorgeous, hot, spicy and bursting with flavour, but the crispy pork belly with chilli... More

This one our favourite restaurants. Great spicy Thai food sitting on the street. The service is fast and friendly. Hot duck curry is pretty hard to beat

My partner and I visited this very popular BYO restaurant in November. This location in Surry Hills does not accept reservations and we just dropped by. As far as I know, they have several other locations in Sydney now (including one in Darlinghurst and one in Balmain) and none of them accepts that you bring your own bottle. We were... More

I stopped by for a late lunch in Spice I Am on my way to Sydney Central from Travelodge. Only had a chance to dine in once over my 6 days stay in Sydney. It opens from 11am for lunch but will have a short afternoon break before start serving again for dinner. Most of the time it was full... More

Amazing food, better than Thailand. Packs a punch those chilli dishes. The standing room only only adds to the ambience.

My wife and I have been here countless times but we don't even live in Australia. Of the 4 times we've traveled to Sydney we've been here probably 10 times. We live in the US and this is hands down the best Thai food that we've ever had! It is our first restaurant to go to when we arrive in... More
