What a shame as it is one of our favourite Indonesian restaurant in the cbd , after 8 years of trading , it had closed in Jan 2017. Best of luck to everyone at Delima !

I take my family, work colleagues, international visitors and customers to Delima. I have done for more than 6 years. Quitely nested away in a clean and pleasing dining room on the first floor on Dixon st., it offers a culinary trip to Indonesia and the greater South East Asian tastes. The Perkedel Kentangs, Chicken Satays and Beef Rendang are... More

Came to this restaurant with a group of 9 people after having had a long day meeting at a nearby conference center. It was a very short walk from the city centre and at a quite happening area of the city. The restaurant is located on the first floor and to get there you need to get through a side... More

Had dinner at this restaurant amidst the upper end of the street in Chinatown. Food is great especially the deep fried Gurame (carp) and the gado-gado (peanut sauce salad). Very popular spot with South East Asians nonetheless Indonesians. Price is not too expensive. They also cater for tour groups hence at dinner, queueing is required. Staff service is extremely quick... More

Only went there because was with Muslim friends. Ordered chicken and seafood vege. Both were too sweet for my taste. The environment was good, lots of privacy but was noisy, maybe because there was a really loud Cantonese speaker yelling on the phone to his supplier for cheaper price....

Most Indonesian restaurants in Europe have European taste. So I didn't expect that this restaurant would authentic taste. But they do! I was here for a wedding party of a friend. They did it good!

An Indon restaurant serves halal and authentic Indonesian food located on the the 1st floor of No 1 Dixon Street Shopping Centre. The juicy and tender "daging balado" and "sup sayur asem" were superb. The price is slightly expensive as this restaurant offers a very Indon ambience but it's worth it. I went there with my son for dinner. The... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
