This is a very large part of town, very lively and well-served by transit. I noticed a huge amount of restaurants, and these are the dominant cultural attractions.

Very busy, congested at the peak of the evening. Mamak kiosk best by far, the rotti canai was a delight. Nice for a walk through but would recommend trying one of the many restaurants situated throughout china town rather than the street stalls.

There are places to eat in Chinatown but don't bother with the night market - very limited. Disappointing.

entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum
cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the
