Popped into Nok Nok after attending a trade fair at the new Sydney Convention Center. My wife felt like Thai food so it was the obvious choice whilst in the area. Once seated we were presented with the menus with a sheet attached telling us that due to the ban on imported prawns at the present time, there are no... More

A great, friendly Thai restaurant in Sydney City at Darling Harbour. Lunch prices from $10, extensive variety of dishes, something for everyone and good sized portions - you won't leave hungry. I eat there a few times every month. Seating options of inside or outside next to a small park and watch the world go by.

Visited for dinner with the kids. Nice indoor & outdoor seating options and friendly service. Wasn't the best Thai food we've eaten (& we've tried a lot!) but was still very good and reasonably priced.

The location is hard to beat with plenty of tables outside to take in the humming astmosphere of Darling Harbour, but the food is the real surprise. It is fresh and flavoursome. Service is quick and the staff are friendly and don't hover. You can get a jug of Pimms to wash it all down and consider yourself well fed... More

I had a chicken dish, which was not bad. My husband had a vegetarian noodle dish, which he said was rather tasteless. Not a bad place to have lunch, and the prices are decent, considering the area, but the service was just okay.

My mum, my little son and I had a fabulous lunch here today. It was our second visit, having been 3 years ago when I was last visiting my mum. The food was just as good and fresh and tasty. It was a lunch menu. It came quickly and was just as good as last time. They were excellent with... More

I've eaten here a number of times with friends for lunch. If you can't handle chilli, do not get the green curry mild, because even the mild will kill you! I love their pad siew, its not sweet at all and the portion is very large. Hope you're hungry! Make sure you order their fresh coconut to cool you down... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
