Knowing Sydney was an expensive city to visit, it was great to have found this upon searching for cheap eats around the area. This became our default dining place when we don't feel adventurous and just want to eat good food. We saved a lot from dining on more expensive restos indeed. I particularly love their soft boiled egg on... More

Highly recommend. Love the food in here - Japanese. Cheap, served very quick. We usually order soba noodle with chicken teriyaki and some tempuras (love that crunchy bite). Great snack bar too.

When a friend said we were going for noodles, I didn't think it'd be such an event! This place is simple. Tuck shop style. You wait in line and choose what you want. But the noodle stock was very rich and amazing. I had the Tonkatsu Red which even had some Mala in it - that gave it an extra... More

The weather was quite warm and we wanted something not too heavy. Cold soba noodles sounded like a fantastic idea, so we returned to our fav no-fuss Mappen Noodle Bar on George St. This is the place to go when you draw a mental blank about what you want to eat and don't want to spend too much. Of course... More

Ordered Curry udon and mix tempura set with extra topping of fish cake, takoyaki and sweet potato. Feels satisfied with the food quality, and most important the price is fair. Recommended.

Pretty decent tasting udon similar to what u'll find on streets of japan and for good value too. Also love the tempura items u can pick. I recommend trying all the noodle dishes with the scallion and fried bits toppings. Makes the udon so much better Also grab a good amount of tempura sauce for ur tempuras

Love this place for lunch break Well trained staff, hygiene oriented a typical Japanese culture and habits.. You'll find quick service, hot soba or udon freshly cooked in 5 minutes times... lots of toppings and add on to choose.. This place is packed during lunch time, people are queuing but they serve fast, don't worry for the seating, they normally... More

Menya Mappen is one of the few places in Sydney where you can fill your stomach without spending a fortune. The food isn't of the best quality, but it's very consistent.

Extremely cheap food (by Sydney standards). Queue up (don't take a seat yet), order what you want, grab any extras, and pay. Then take a seat. Don't worry, this place has a quick turnover rate so you'll almost always score a seat right away. And don't be afraid to share the big table with strangers! Don't forget to take your... More

This is not the same as Menya, which is also in Sydney. Menya Mappen is a fast-food style Japanese restaurant but has some really nice offers.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
