Wonderful noodles

This is a place I always look forward to when I come to Sydney. I gaze at the selection board, yet always seem to choose 28a. The soup is very good and the chef is generous with the ingredients. Ignore the hawkers on the street level and come to the food court!

We have been going back to this restaurant for over 20 years specifically for the Laksa which is our favourite meal. The servings are huge and rarely do I manage to finish the bowl. Last time I was there I had the king prawn, scallop and wonton variety with egg noodles. The food hall is busy, clean and informal with... More

We popped in here on a recent trip to sydney. The food was absolutely amazing, plentiful, fresh, great quality, bloody cheap and friendly service. I didn't even care we were in a crowded food court. Wish you could get food like this is Queensland!

I've lived in Sydney for over 8 years and without a doubt Happy Chef (in my experience) has been consistently the best for laksa. Most dishes are around the $10 mark, are well portioned and flavoursome. I've dined there dozens of times and haven't had a bad experience once. Happy Chef is located in the upstairs food court of the... More

We went to this restaurant it came recommended to us. We were the first to arrive at 6pm for dinner but the restaurant filled to capacity quickly. The decorations are quaint and somewhat stereotypical for an asian restaurant. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful in recommending popular dishes. We ordered the lemongrass prawns,the bbq chicken, peanut curry, and beef... More
