It says laksa king, you should believe it! I get here from time to time for lunch, and I am so happy to get away as quick as I want, having paid a ridiculous amount of money for such a tasty laksa. Try it!

Looks like very popular in lunch time. A lot business suite people line up waiting. Tried the wonton laksa. Ordered the spicy plus. Turned out still not spicy enough---a taste for white people. The laksa soup is ok, a lot coriander and dry shrimp tastes, Thai style more than Chinese's. Very disappointed the wontons were not hot, just a quick... More

The laksa is just ok for me because the soup is a bit watery for me and I expect it be a little bit creamy. It would be better if they have prawn paste with lime as side condiment to go with it. Well, that is just me. Overall, taste ok.

A little strange when you order in here. When your order is ready they come right to your table to tell you but you have to get up and collect yourself. Why not bring it over. My pad thai was a little bland and the tofu was burnt a little. Good sized portion and ok value but wont rush back.

I've being here a few times with work mates. It's always crowded. There is a reason for that. The food is quick, affordable and tastes great! The bowls of Laksa are almost enough to feed three. I always ask for extra spicy. Which is delivered. Some of the curries are a bit simple in presentation. Stick to Laksa and you'll... More

For my first time to Laska King it would have been rude to have had anything but a Laksa and was exceptionally impressed with the quality of the dish. I had a combo of Chicken & BBQ pork and found both meats to be of good quality. The Laska soup itself was exceptionally tasty and not too watery like most... More

This place gets super busy at lunchtime but they still manage to push the food out pretty quickly. Laksa is awesome - all the right flavours and not too overwhelming like it can be. The hainese chicken rice is tops as well, beef pho reasonable. Takeaway also available.

My favourite is the prawn laksa, it's full of flavour and the serving is huge! Big bowl full of noodles and big prawns. Tastes so good, especially now, in winter time. Warms your soul! The place is usually crowded so I try to avoid the peak time, go around 12pm or a bit later, after 1:30pm. If not possible, just... More

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.
