This place is really casual, accepting cash only. It is popular with office workers during the week so it's best to consider the timing of your visit, although they do have a fast through -put of customers. The Laksa is among the very best that...More

I went to Malay Chinese because of it’s close proximity to the Opera House and Royal Botanic Gardens, and I’m so glad. The laksa here is so unbelievably cheap and the tastiest, richest laksa I’ve ever, ever had! They do many different versions from tofu...More

We had lunch at Malay Chinese on Friday. It was not even 12pm and the place was very busy with the city lunchtime crowd. The beef rendang lacked flavour and spice and the beef was not very tender. Next time we will try the crowd...More

Have been to this restaurant many times and its curry laksa never fail me. The laksa soup is very consistent and tasted just right. Hor Fun is the other dish that I thoroughly enjoyed. Both these dishes are my favourite from this restaurant.

The Laksa here is amazing, probably the best in Sydney. I highly highly high recommend stopping in here. There’s really only one issue and that is its opening hours, they aren’t open Sunday and shut early Saturday so it’s rather difficult to get in opening...More

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
