Haymarket never used to be somewhere you’d go for fine dining. Now though? Different story. All the humble, value-oriented restaurants are still there, but now the miniature suburb also has the Darling Square precinct and with it a diverse array of restaurants serving both the CBD lunch crowd and destination diners looking for something more innovative.
For the old school, wallet-friendly options look to Thai Town, easily the best collection of Thai restaurants anywhere in Sydney, or the Dixon and Sussex street strips for a range of Chinese restaurants and the city’s best food-court eats.
