This would have been our second visit to Sydney fish market where our family call it heaven on earth! This trip we brought along our extended family and it was a “Wow” from all. Well done!

A totally unsatisfactory experience. Over priced precooked food that's completely desicated. Terrible coffee and stacks of tourists taking pictures of food. God talk about just beyond awful. If your a local give it a miss.
