Their laksa, seafood noodles are simply the best tasting dishes in Sydney. Try more than once. Service is very fast. Prices are very reasonable.

In my humble opinion this is where you will find the best combination laksa in Sydney. I never miss an opportunity to pop in for one of these delicious dishes when I am nearby and it never fails to impress. The serving sizes are large, the prices good and the service friendly and efficient. Wash it down with a Tsing... More

I cant be certain but I think they only accept cash, just be prepared for either. Great choices, affordable, and fast. Its in a food court in Chinatown. They do have an elevator but if you have small children and a stroller they wont let you use the elevator in the mall. The soup is yummy and hot. Great value.

Love them. Eat them often. This one, prawn and scallop with rice noodles... Is average. Mild, not many veg, nice deep taste and very... More

If you like spicy food, get the Laksa, you won't be disappointed! Tender seafood, nice flavor, better with thin noodles (personal preference). Consistently good, got the recommendation from friend who has been eating here for 20 years.

Always striving to find a great place for noodle soup, definitely found it here, the broth is so flavourful, tasty generous portions of meat and fish all for between $9-12, can't go wrong. Extensive menu that I'm working my way through and I like that you get the choice of 4 types of noodles. My fiance's a big fan of... More

Super fresh scallops and prawns and fiery chilli! Try their egg noodles with the laksa. Weird combo but absolutely worth the try!

This is a renowned Laksa restaurant. We have been coming here for years. We love it and now our daughter eats it as well. Try the chicken, prawn and tofu, just yum!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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 yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
