Food is delicious as always but being a food court, it is hard to judge the service, however, there is a lady at the cashier who is really grumpy and unfriendly every single time I see her. They don't really tell you when your food is ready either so you have to keep an eye out.

Ordered the Gra Pao Chicken which was ok but seemed to be more basil (stalk and all) than anything else. Maybe that's authentic but not to my taste so no complaints on that. However when ordering I had to wait in line while a couple had a 5+ minute conversation with (presumably) their friend who was taking orders (all in... More

We ordered the crab sticks, boat noodles, papaya salad, porridge, phad thai & vermicelli with pork. The food was good and authentic. The only downside was the pork taste in the vermicelli was too strong that it was not very appetizing. We noted that this place is quite popular. The service is good and fast.

Went there for dinner in a group of 3. Waiting was not too long and food came fast enough. All we ordered was good.

We had a delicious dinner consisting oh shrimp chicken salad, stir fried morning glory and steamed chili cod. We dined in the new restaurant in Circular Quay. The flavor, quality and presentation was spot on. The food is better than the ones we dined in Bangkok recently. Price was reasonable consider it is in the CBD of Sydney. Highly recommend.

Walked around a few places and chose this one as it was very popular and had people lining up outside. Menu had lots to offer. I ordered a chicken dish and my mum ordered a prawn dish and we had chicken wings for entree. Waiter warned us that it would be spicy and it was! This is not for the... More

My friend recommended me this place and we went together. She had been talking a lot about it so my expectations were really high. In the end, the food was adequate and service okay (still some room for improvement though) but it was nothing extraordinary. I guess I was disappointed. Prices are a plus.

Nice Thai food but portions are small and quite pricey. It is located inside Westfield so maybe subsidising their rent. Their service is sometimes ok but sometimes terrible. I guess it depends how busy they are. They have nice fruit slushies. It is super busy so there's always a line. You can order takeaway. Their plates smell a bit because... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a Thai friend and was not disappointed. The food is amazing. Authentic and very reasonably priced and even more exciting was the choice of thai desserts I remember and reminisce from my childhood living in Thailand. I had to stop myself from going back there over and over again during my short stay in... 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.
