Simply the best laksa I have had. Zero ambience or charm apart from the buzz of the customers with the queue out the door an up the street. They do have some good daily specials but really the main reason to come here is the laksa

This place is a great lunch spot. It's always packed. The laksa is awesome - full of flavour, big portions and the chicken is so tender! Love this place. Best value in Sydney.

I visited this restaurant because I always see queues outside the shop, so thought that it must be good. Their laksa was indeed delicious. Haven't tried their other dishes so can't really say much about that. Will come back for a visit! :)

Good quality food. Just the job for a hungry family. Well with a visit. Kids enjoyed it too. The menu choice was simple

I cannot say anything bad about the many laksas I have enjoyed at this delicious establishment! I go during lunch time in the city and it is quite busy, but we always get served quickly and our meals are prepared quickly too. I would highly recommend and encourage everyone to taste this divine laksa. Go, go, go!

I must start with the disclaimer that I know the family which runs this place, although I have fallen in love with the food here about 15 years ago, before I have come to know them. We visit the Malay Chinese at least once a month. Sometimes the craving gets us to come more frequently. It's usually the laksa that... More

The place is always crowded during lunch time. The chicken laksa is the best I had in Sydney CBD so far. The homemake pickle chili and chili paste is delicious.

I have visited this restaurant many times. Recently, the Har Mee has been watered down and is now tasteless, the Laksa is not as good. Last couple of visits gave me a stomach ache. Could be the hygiene. Does anyone have this problem? I will never go back to this restaurant again!

I've done much research before our trip to Sydney and this restaurant kept popping up as a recommended place for a meal. After two failed attempts to get there for dinner (they close at 7pm instead of 7:30 as advertised on their internet site), we finally made it there for a delicious dinner. We actually ended up eating there twice.... More
