We took the kids to Mother Chu's Vegetarian Kitchen at very short notice and they had no idea that we were eating vegetarian. We so enjoyed all of the dishes that we ordered and the kids thought the Honey Gluten Balls were actually chicken and the curried veges were just the ticket. It was amazing to watch Mother Chu direct... More

The food is good, if you are veggie lover then you should pay a visit here. the only issue is the room temperature is very hot like no air conditioning.

Wandered in here out of the rain. It was very busy but we got squeezed in. Asked the waitress for some advise and ordered. Served quickly. Found was very tasty...good portions. Little bit pricey, but done the job.

Food is so good at this vegetarian eatery on Pitt Street downtown Sydney. There is a good variety of dishes on the menu and everything is freshly made, we loved the crispy tofu. Prices are affordable but the service could be better, it takes a while for the food to come especially when it is busy. Still a very nice... More

Lovely veg meals tasting better than meat based dishes. Full vegan choices. Used to be able to say hello to warming Mother Chu herself. Sadly she is not there anymore.

We came here for an evening meal. The service was quick, very good value for money for the city centre. There was A LOT of choice, a great place if you're a vegan too. The food wasn't phenomenal, but for the price, choice and location I think it was a pretty good meal!

Lots of asian/Chinese food here and ALL veg, right down to the ice cream. Great for vegans too. The variety is massive, the service is quick, and the prices not bad at all. No MSG used. This is not a 'luxe' restaurant, it is a simple place with good food.

Excellent food in a no frills restaurant. Food is fresh and delicious. The deep fried tofu entree is a staple. Last time we went we got spicy Szechuan tofu, spicy fried eggplant and a gluten dish. All excellent options, but there are a lot of choices. We have been coming here for a couple of decades & has to be... More

Been meaning to try this place for a while and glad we did tonight. Crispy peppered tofu was light and tasty but on the salty side. Highly recommend the eggplant stuffed with tofu and vegetable, accompanied by yum miso paste sauce.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
