Great after visiting the park

If you happen to walk this way bring a big appetite. The pies are fun and filling but don't just have a pie by itself, get it Tiger style and get the full experience. This place makes a great stop after a day in the park and nearby attractions. As I type this I find myself wishing I was still... read more

Everyone needs to try one of Harry's pies and I guarantee they will be back for more. Harry has been around for more than 30 or 40yrs and is famous for his pies.

I lived in Sydney in the 60's and 70's and Harry de Wheels was around then. I had a pie with potatoes and peas, called a Tiger....yummy. This place is at the Navy Base at Wooloomooloo, just a cart on the street, but I would guess he sold 50 pies while I was waiting for my order.

A Sydney institution. Damn good pies and an iconic location. You've got to go the Tiger: Pie, Peas and Gravy.

Steadily busy long into the night, Harry's is another Sydney icon. Neon fixtures, funky images, and tasty treats. A great night photo spot. Try it Tiger style - pie, mashed potatoes, mushy peas, and gravy. Very tasty.

We were recommended this little place by one of the staff at the Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk Experience....which we had just completed! It was getting quite late so not a lot was going to be open....and we needed to be fed! Harry's was heaving!....little tables set outside and many people just standing with pies etc in their hand...a great little... More

My 18 year old son loved this place and so did I as I could keep him fed and happy at all hours for cheap! I think he sampled half the menu and liked it all!

Visited Harry's a couple of weekends ago on a very cold day. The food was delicious and hot on such a miserable day !! Can recommend the pasties with mashed potato and gravy. Will visit again when I am next in Sydney. Only a short walk from the Hop on Hop Off bus stop.
