Outstanding fried hokkien prawn mee 4.25/5, as close as you can get to a hawker style served in singapore. Vermicelli and hokkien noodles mixed with velvety smooth gravy, punctuated by slices of pork and the crunch of bean shoots, along with fresh calamari and shrimps, it truly brought me back to late nights eats on the streets of singapore.

We had chicken rice and Hokkien prawn mee. The chef John was very courteous and friendly. Food was delicious and authentic. We stumbled upon this restaurant and glad we did. We surely will be back for more.

As a regular Singapura customer I think that the world should know that the move to Oxford Street has not changed the tasty food at great value for money. It is always a reliable option for a quick lunch or dinner of great value and great taste..

Char Kway Teow is all that needs to be said. Their version is wonderful, its smoky, its a tad burnt, its caramelised, its sweet with Chinese sausage and prawns and I cant get enough of it. I have had the Laksa which was nice but a little light on flavour. The Hainanese chicken rice is good but for me its... More

Do my grocery shopping in the opposite grocer.There was no apology from the rude owner lady and after stating I had to go, the... More

From the outside, this eating house is not much to look at. It was a gamble that definitely paid off! I was greeted by the owner, who provided service with a smile. I ordered chicken rice, satay sticks and a few other noodle dishes, and I was blown away by the full-on flavour! The dishes were delicious to eat and... More

An unassuming Singapore/Malaysian joint located in an arcade. I had quite low expectations because of the appearance but was blown away by the quality of the food. The Singapore noodles and Char Kway Teow were both really very good and probably the best I've ever had in Sydney. I am totally amazed by this place and will definitely be back.... More

This rather austere looking restaurant has been around for years, and has a steady stream of customers for their chicken rice and other Malay food. Their chicken rice is great, and with the opening of a gym just upstairs, chicken rice now comes in various sizes: regular, large, double and triple. You'll notice there are always a few guys from...

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
