This is a no frills eatery in Sydney's CBD. Not an elegant five star dining experience by any means, however, every dish I have ever eaten here (and there have been many over the years) has been truly excellent ! I went back there just...More

Seriously people, if you need a Laksa fix in Sydney, then you really need to get yourself to this place on Hunter Street during business hours, Monday to Friday and join the other bib-wearing office workers. This place is hands down THE very best Laksa...More

Best $11.70 you will spend on Lunch in the Sydney CBD. Buy a chicken laksa and enjoy. A long line for lunch but moves fast and service is truly fast food.

I’ve never been to this style of restaurant before; but it’s the best ever - load up your own bowl with everything you like - weigh it to find out your price - then minutes later it’s cooked. Every time I head into the city...More

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

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
