Airport to Dixon St.

Hey Guys, a couple of country mice coming to visit their city cousins. Was wondering the best(easiest) way of getting to our digs in Dixon St. (quest) from the airport. Also, I believe Dixon St is in Chinatown, any recommendations on somewhere nice to eat? We'll be in town for four days and won't want Asian every night, anywhere else close by? Thanks for any advice

Well, depending on how much luggage you have, you could get a train to Central and walk via the park. Otherwise take a cab for not a great deal more than two people on the train and a cab will get you to the front door. Shuttle bus not recommended. Lots of places to eat in Chinatown , one recommended example is Golden Century and there are several cheapies on the 5th (? ) floor of Paddys market and others in Dixon Street. For other than Asian, what sorts of food appeal to uou?

Hi flanneur, thanks for that. Thought a cab might have been the way to go. Good Italian is nice or maybe modern Australian, open to suggestions. Thanks

Definitely a taxi ride.

Quest on Dixon is towards the other end, closer to Liverpool St, so its near on a kilometre walk from Central - maybe even a touch further.

A pub on almost every corner and they all do good counter meals.

Taxi and yes try the Spanish Quarter

I'd also be tempted to walk up to Crown St and take a ount for all sorts of food (quite a busy strip so 99% food is good or goes)

Thanks flanneur and GurusW, love Spanish(paella for dinner tonight). I think I need to check out a map and find out where these streets are in relation to where we are staying. Thanks for help, much appreciated
