Recommended by a local restaurant that was fully booked. Did not disappoint with fantastic authentic Thai food. Had the Thai broccoli crispy pork, prawn lemongrass salad and red duck curry Small place near to bottle shop so overall a great little find and reasonably priced

We arrived at about 9.00pm. Place was full so we had to wait about 15 mins for a table. Once we were seated we were told we had to bring our own alcohol - no problem as there is a pub not far away. Food...More

This is one of those hole-in-the-wall place that serves decent food with friendly service. Tom Yum Gong was one of the best I’ve had- generous serving of juicy oversized king prawns and best of all with fresh herbs and spices that you can see and...More

Generally the dishes here are very good. I almost always come to this place every time I come to Sydney. It is diagonally opposite the Travelodge, where I like to stay. The cafe is very small but very popular, so you have to come early....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

Yes it's BYO. There is a pub about 50m away too. Don't remember being charged for corkage.
