There's still enough cheap Thai to be had along King Street to keep every single uni student in pad Thai, and some of the old faithfuls remain blessedly unchanged after decades, like Rowda Ya Habibi and Hikaru. But Newtown is evolving, too. There's high end dining to be had, but also a bunch of hyper focussed regional diners dishing up everything from Egyptian street food to Venezualan snacks and fiery Chinese hot pots. Vegans are still well catered for, and people still queue for serviceable Italian and boisterous surrounds at the Pasta Bowl. If you're hungry in this rainbow neck of the woods, you've got your choice of cuisines and price points. And if you're travelling a little further afield, we've rounded up the best Surry Hills restaurants, and Bondi restaurants for your dining pleasure.
