Best Laksa in Sydney

Consistently this place turns out the best Laksa in the land. I've had many of them, here and overseas and this place is by far the best - I go back time and time again because of this. Certainly a no frills environment but your'e not there for the decor!

Maybe I have been spoilt I love a good laksa, and will travel all over Sydney to have a good laksa. I live nearby and always meet with friends and work colleagues in Chatswood and I finally tried this place, now you must understand Chatswood has many many Asian eatries and I have tried some. After my laksa I felt... More

2nd best laksa in Sydney and half the price of the 1st! . Well worth a visit I love this place. Always packed so don't rock up starving but tables come up quickly. Wear the bib for the soup :-)

Best hainan chicken rice and har mee noodles ever, even higher than Malaysian standards. You will need to go early for lunch say 11.30am or you'll have troubles with seating if with a group.

Seriously - when you are with a Malaysian person and they say that the laksa is better than grandma's what more do you need to know? Great daily specials to and the Hainan chicken rice is great

We loved eating at this restaurant on a Saturday at noon. The place can get packed, but it is totally worth the experience, and once you eat there you'll understand why. For around 20 Australian Dollars, you can feed two people with a delicious Laksa bowl and another traditional dish. We sat down with a family from Malaysia who resided... More

This is a combined family review. I personally adore this place and make it a point to eat here every time I am in Sydney. My partner thinks it could be better. Anyway generally we all had a fantastic time, I particularly liked the chicken rice - wish it was a bigger serving, the curry laksa was close second -... More

Typical place from the East, ordinary seating and service but absolutely dazzling food! The chicken laksa and the beef mekong are superb!
