Had we not been recommended to try the Laksa at Malay Chinese we probably would have walked past this unassuming eatery without a second glance. We are so glad we tried it! The service is fast and the laksa is delicious. Even on a Saturday...More

We were recommend to come here for lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised. The laksa was reasonably priced, delicious and fast. We were very impressed to find such good laksa such a distance from Chinatown. If you are up the northern end if the CBD,...More

Finally visited here recently and was impressed. Having been a big fan of To's in North Sydney for many years I was disappointed a few years back when it was sold and subsequently went down hill. Finally found somewhere comparable! I will be back!

The Laksa at Malay Chinese would have to be the best Laksa I have ever had, skinless chicken with a big spoon of extra ground chili is just to die for (and you just about do die with that much chili) I have had laksa...More

This is one almighty busy eatery. The crowds come in their droves but despite that, there is always a place which becomes free to sit down to eat. It is strictly counter service. Line up at the cashier, give your order, pay, then wait about...More

I have tried a lot of laksa places in the city and this is hands down the best laksa. Spicy, salty, oily goodness. Their laksa is a bit on the rich, salty, spicy side, so if you prefer more bland laksas, this place is not...More

I was here for their famous laksa, so many has claimed the best Malaysian laksa in Sydney. The bowl of chicken laksa I had was huge. A very generous serving but quite oily. I can see a thick layer of oil floating in my bowl....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
