Terrible customer service - do not go unless you have 2-3 hours to kill. We pre-ordered lunch for 17 people to arrive at 1pm. The food only arrived at 2pm after I complained numerous times and stood by while food went to other tables. We only had 1 minute to scoff down our food and get indigestion. Many people had... More

A menu reminiscent of a Chinese restaurant in a 1970s country town. Flavourless, slimy stodge. Try the Chinese on Hunter St instead.

Don't mind paying $ 17 for a bowl of chicken soup, though quality has gone down over the past few months, but $9 for a pot of tea is ridiculous! Nice ambience and service won't be rushing back.

Friendly service, nice ambiance, really good flavours. Priced a little higher than some similar restaurants, but the ambiance and the quality of the food make it worth the extra. Represents good value. Visited twice during our stay in Sydney and enjoyed it equally both times. The seafood laksa was excellent and their salads are really fresh, crisp and flavoursome.

Indochine used to be one of my favourite restaurants for lunch in Sydney city, but no longer as management has changed hands. The service has gone downhill as has the food. Wouldn't even allow you to split a bill. I have gone back twice in the last few months as I wanted to give them another go after a bad... More

Had a beautiful lunch at Indochine today. Salt & pepper soft-shell crab and a delicious pork & prawn soup with noodles. Service friendly and reasonably priced. Strongly recommended.

Food below average, more typical of a food corner restaurant in a mall. I had a Thai chicken curry. The curry was not great, the chicken tasted synthetic. After that, i didn't feel like ordering anything else.

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.
