Sydney's Chinatown is the largest Chinatown in Australia with a history dating back to the 1800s when many Chinese immigrants started arriving in Australia. It is a vibrant, exciting Sydney nieghbourhood and a favourite destination for visitors staying at the Central Station Hotel. As such, we've taken upon ourselves to produce a quick guide of what to do and where to eat in Chinatown.
Sydney’s Chinatown offers a huge variety of restaurants to suit every taste. Our handy guide highlights our 10 of our particular favourites, including...
4. Din Tai Fung
Din Tai Fung prides itself on offering the best dumplings in Chinatown, and has been so successful that it now has a total of four outlets across the city! While some people have accused the chain of “selling out,” their dumplings are so superb that it makes absolute sense for them to capitalise on what they blatantly do so well. You can find the original restaurant here on George Street, open 11.30am to 2.00pm and 5.30pm to 9.00pm daily.
- OPEN: 11.30am to 2.00pm and 5.30pm to 9.00pm daily
- Address: World Square, 11.04/644 George St, Sydney NSW 2000
