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

I always order the same dish there because it's the best chilli chicken fried riced that I ever had. For sure the other dishes are great too.

The noodles here are unassuming but very tasty - and I don't say it lightly. Full of flavours without being too salty or over-empowering - the balance is just right.

This place has been attracting many customers since they started near Chinatown years ago. It is so packed but no one complains when you can get a table for four and being packed for 6! You literally have to jump over someone to sit down at your assigned table. Authentic Thai food with excellent traditional desserts where many local Thai... More

This is located at the Myer food court basement at a corner. The place was busy when we were there for dinner. We ordered the chef recommended beef brisket noodle and padthai. The beef noodle was a disappointed as it was too sweet. Too much sugar used and it was impossible to eat. The pad thai was much better but... More

Excellent food and service, even though it's a bit pricey but it's worthwhile... only the location is hard to find if you are a non Sydney resident.

It is a relatively affordable Thai place in the middle of Sydney's CBD. The food was quite tasty as well. Will be back.

I'm from Melbourne and have been waiting for my next trip to Sydney to eat here again, did not disappoint! Food was as delicious, just as I remembered. This time the stand out dishes were the snapper with red curry and duck with tamarind sauce - yum!!!

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.
