If you're willing and able to spend mega-bucks on swimming around fish, crabs or lobster ( weren't - we just wanted a simple lunch), this probably is a great place for you. If you're not looking for the fresh seafood experience, you'll find, as we...More

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
