Order lunch out back. Fresh, tasty, really well cooked. All the usual Thai dishes. Then you can have a quiet beer in the front bar, quiet and lots of TV’s. Really friendly bar staff and restaurant staff. Same crew works out of Broadway hotel.

Lots of locals. Just had appetizers and tries a few beers. There are a couple of places together including pool table room and prosperity lounge that I think is a gambling place for little old Chinese ladies. 😁

A good Hotel with the usual facilities supplemented by an adjoining kitchen or takeaway Asian food outlet at the rear. The food is excellent and come see quickly. There are different areas to the hotel and the food will be delivered to you.

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
