Chinatown's not all about Chinese food you know. There are also epic Malaysian eats and some kickass Thai to boot. Here's our list of where to eat and what not to miss.

Restaurants

Chat Thai

At this HQ for Sydney’s top Thai chain you have to save room for the banana fritters – deep-fried in a dense, sesame seed-laden batter that envelops the syrupy hot fruit. In fact, save room for seconds.

Golden Century

It’s famous for post-shift suppers among Sydney’s chefs, but this Canto-palace is also a great choice for a big night out with a menu including pipis in XO sauce, crisp-skinned chicken and steamed parrot fish.
Restaurants

Gumshara

It takes seven days to make the pork stock for their tonkotsu ramen and three ingredients: water, miso and 120kg of pork bones. This incredibly collagen-enriched noodle soup is so thick, rich and porky that one between two is enough.

Mamak

Order the roti – paper-thin pieces of dough rolled out thinly, fried on a hotplate and folded into parcels to be eaten with curry. You already know it's crazy popular here, but come late on Friday or Saturday night for a 1am roti fix without the queues.

Still got a hunger on?
