So let’s take a look at some food courts!


Five of the best food courts in Sydney!

Sydney food

1 Sussex Centre

Sussex Centre is a food court in Sydney’s Haymarket where you can enjoy Asian cuisine such as Chinese and Thai.

There are more than 10 restaurants gathered here, so you will be able to find the food you want to eat.

Although Australia is a card-carrying country, most restaurants require payment in cash.

The food court has many chairs where you can sit freely, but it may be crowded at lunchtime and in the evening.

Sussex Centre
  • Address: 401/403 Sussex St, Haymarket NSW 2000 Australia
  • Opening hours: 10:00am – 9:00pm daily

2 Central Park Mall

Central Park Mall is a shopping mall located opposite the University of Technology Sydney.

The stores have everything from famous brands to Woolworths supermarkets, and there is a park nearby to relax in.

Although it is not on the website, there are Indian curry and Malaysian food restaurants on the second floor of the mall.

The prices are reasonable, so be sure to take advantage of them.

  • Opening hours: 10:00 am – 8:00 pm daily

3 Spice Alley

Spice Alley is a food court located in front of the Central Park Mall.

It is a place where you can taste a wide variety of cuisines from Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, and more.

The food starts at $10 and is delicious, so I highly recommend it.

It is also close to Central Station, so it is very convenient.

Spice Alley
  • Address: Kensington St, Chippendale NSW 2008 Australia
  • Opening hours: 11:00am – 9:30pm daily

4 Eating street Food Court

Eating street Food Court is a food court located in the vicinity of the Sussex Centre.

Many of the restaurants feature Chinese and Hong Kong cuisine.

The average price is $13 Australian dollars, which is very reasonable.

The food does not taste bad, so I recommend it.

Eating street Food Court
  • Address: 163 Dixon St, Haymarket NSW 2000 Australia
  • Opening hours: 11:00am – 9:00pm daily

5 Pittsway Arcade

Pittsway Arcade is a food court where you can eat Japanese, Thai and Malaysian food.

It is located in Town Hall in the center of Sydney, but is not as famous as other food courts.

However, I can recommend it because it offers good food at low prices.

It is not very crowded, so you can easily eat there even if you are short on time.

Pittsway Arcade
  • Address: 303 Pitt St, Sydney NSW 2000 Australia

Features of Sydney’s Food Court


1 A wide variety of Asian food

The food courts in Sydney have a large number of Asian dishes.

One possible reason for this is probably related to the large number of immigrants.

Isn’t it attractive to be able to taste a wide range of international cuisine while living in Australia?

2 Affordable pricing

Prices in food courts are often lower than those in typical restaurants.

This is because the restaurant only needs to rent a tenant, so there is no need to provide furniture such as tables.

The furniture and other items are provided by the facility, so the restaurant can operate with less cost.

3 Many seats

A food court is a collection of several restaurants, so there are more seats available.

This has the advantage that they are rarely full.

On the other hand, during lunch and evening meal times, there is a possibility that the seats will be filled.

However, you have the advantage of being free to choose the seat you want.

Things to keep in mind at food courts in Sydney

Sydney caution

1 Be careful with your luggage

Sydney is said to be a safe city, but you can never be too careful.

This is because there are many people who leave their belongings at food courts.

If you leave your smartphone or bag behind in order to secure a seat, there is a possibility that it will be stolen.

Therefore, take good care of your belongings.

2 You can only use cash in many cases

In many food courts in Sydney, cards are not accepted.

Therefore, you need to bring cash with you.

The reason why you can only use cash is because the owner uses a method called cash on hand.

This is illegal and often results in low wages for the workers.

If you are planning to work part-time in Australia, please be careful.

3 Check your change

It may not happen often, but some people in food courts intentionally make mistakes with their change.

Therefore, when you receive your change, make sure it is the correct amount.

If you don’t point out the mistake on the spot, they won’t take you seriously, so it’s better to tell them right away if there is a mistake.
