Love them. Eat them often. This one, prawn and scallop with rice noodles... Is average. Mild, not many veg, nice deep taste and very... More

If you like spicy food, get the Laksa, you won't be disappointed! Tender seafood, nice flavor, better with thin noodles (personal preference). Consistently good, got the recommendation from friend who has been eating here for 20 years.

Always striving to find a great place for noodle soup, definitely found it here, the broth is so flavourful, tasty generous portions of meat and fish all for between $9-12, can't go wrong. Extensive menu that I'm working my way through and I like that you get the choice of 4 types of noodles. My fiance's a big fan of... More

Super fresh scallops and prawns and fiery chilli! Try their egg noodles with the laksa. Weird combo but absolutely worth the try!

Located in Sydney Chinatown in one of the foodcourts. It stood out as it had a crowd around it so I took a chance on it. I had the prawn seafood, wonton laska. A nice generous bowl with 3 prawns, 3 wontons, calamari, 2 fishballs, 3 tofu, some fish sticks (?) and rice noodles (you can choose your noodles) in... More

I ate a few times at Happy Chef (Market City) and their noodles are good, al dente texture and the soup base is full of favour. The noodles are not expensive, good option when you are looking for food after shopping.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the 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 window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
