Came across this restaurant when we were visiting Chatswood on holiday. Good, delicious pho and also reasonably priced. Taste is more designed for Western palate though. Will go back again.

Have been a regular at the Haymarket store and theyve since moved into Chatswood. Thankfully have pinpointed them and am glad to review. Food is as good as always and service has been consistently better. Highly recommend bowl of pho bo (beef with rice noodles) or the sugarcane prawn with vermicelli in summer.

Being local in Chatswood, i was very surprised on the poor quality of food. My crispy skin chicken was cooked twice and sprouts were not fresh. It use to be nice.

Now only in Chatswood ... but we still make the drive as their rolled beef and tomato rice is to die for!! Don't expect plush or atmospheric (one rung up from cafeteria) but great taste and good value. You get free jasmine tea with your meals. Wished they still had the Haymarket premises (hint hint). Its the kind of food... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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 window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
