This restaurant doesn't take bookings so you have to take a number and wait. You have to advise the wait staff, who are consistently rude, that you want your entrees served first, which you think would be obvious, but not at this place which is far from feeling like "Home". The food is served quickly dish after dish with no... More

Having lived in Thailand for 5 years I know the difference between genuine and dumbed down Thai food and this place is the best - backed up by the fact that most of its customers are Thai. Can't book and you may have to wait up to 25 minutes if you go on an evening. Lunch time at weekends is... More

This place was pretty good overall. We arrived at about 6:10pm which was before the dinner rushed didn't have to wait for a seat. The food arrived quickly and was quite nice though a little hot for my liking but still quite edible and my salmon Penang had a small layer of oil on the curry which, while it didn't... More

This restaurant is always crowded with many people waiting for a table. Tables are booked by tearing off a numbered slip from a sheet outside the entrance and then waiting until that number is called. Tables are small and closely packed and the kitchen is open to the restaurant, but this all adds to the authenticity of the venue. The... More

Had a wonderful dinner - as we ate early, we were able to walk straight in to a table. Food prepared almost too quickly but extremely tasty. Not the place if you want a long relaxing meal but was perfect for us as we were off to an event afterwards.

The restaurant is not very big by it is nice. They do not accept reservations, you go there and write your name on the list. Waiting time can... More

Home Thai is seriously one of the best Thai restaurants I have ever been too. I lived in Australia for about 3 months and could not find good Thai until this place. The atmosphere here is very cozy and inviting, servers are typical Thai people and very nice. The food is prepared right in front/behind you depending where you sit... More

Walked here from the Four Seasons Hotel (about twenty minutes). Our food was amazing. Best Thai I've eaten since my trip to Thailand. Everything is handmade and delicious. We ordered Beef Pad Thai, Red Curry Chicken and Spicy Flat Noodles (Beef)…..and washed it down with a couple of Singha's. It was so good we walked back two nights later and... More

I have been here twice, with several friends. We ordered some entrees and main dishes. As in every Thai restaurant, I will try Pad Thai first. Here is sincerely almost the the best Pad Thais that I ever had in Sydney and Melbourne. The noodles themselves are amazing and the taste is great. Also, I recommend fish cakes. Go and... 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.
