My wife and I are on holiday and we decided to pop in for lunch. The line for food was out the door but moving quickly, so we decided to brave the masses. I estimated approx 100 people dining in while we were there and...More

The laksa had a very rich flavour in the broth (could still have been spicier and I hope that isn’t connected to the sign they put up complaining about chilli prices) and the ingredients seemed much better quality than I’ve been seeing in other recommended...More

Brilliant bowl of seafood laksa consumed by 11am (as soon as they start serving customers). Otherwise this place is packed with customers at busy lunch hours each day. Have been enjoying laksa from this place for many years. An opportunity to revisit Sydney CBD and...More

I've been here numerous times lunch during the workday. Their Laksa is the gold standard. Rich, flavourful and well rounded. Their curries are good too, authentic. Serving sizes are generous. The Hainan Chicken is rather good, though there are better places for that, but that's...More

A few hours after arriving in Sydney, and feeling jetlagged, we wandered out for lunch. I had found this spot online ahead of time just a few blocks from our hotel, and it totally hit the spot - hot, spicy soup filled with delicious toppings...More

Prices are ok, meals are good. Apparently many people like this place as it was very crowded (Thursday ~12:45). Food is served fast, but you will be hard pressed/have to wait to find somewhere to sit with 3-4 people. If you are even more, prepare...More

Went there for lunch in October on a weekday. Place was jammed but crowds move in and out quickly so it was fairly easy to get a table for 3. We all had laksa - massive bowls brimming with deliciousness. Tasty, fresh, and filling. Great...More

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
