Ichiban Boshi is popular, despite being high above the ground floor shopping area. I'm more into Thia and Malaysian food which has a lot more kick and punch to its flavours. But my noodles really felt a bit wishy washy and lacking something. They were...More

Had the Chashu-men, which had a nice shoyu stock, which is lighter than the tonkotsu stock. The noodles were done well, with a good chew. They also offered Tsukemen, which I haven't seen that much of in Sydney. Service was fast and fuss free.

found a worm in my soup,felt so sick. I showed it to the waitress,but they said it was galic. I pointed it with feet of worm,they said cannot be sure. They did NOT change it,or not even say SORRY!Really bad services. 汤里面发现有虫子,吃不下去了,叫服务员来看,首先不承认,说是蒜。后来指出来蒜怎么会有一个个虫子的脚?服务员什么也没说,没有给换一碗,也没说对不起,服务太差了

Came here with my son and ordered the Tokyo Ramen and gyoza . Gyoza was very tasty. Ramen way salty and and really fatty. You can feel the fat staying on your lips. Couldn't eat it. Otherwise it's tasty.

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
