Best Restaurants in Sydney
A multi-cultural city like Sydney has a wide variety of food
with influences from around the world, but particularly from Asia.
Along with modern Australian, or ''Mod Oz'', cuisine, which combines
fresh ingredients with a creative blend of European and Asian
styles, restaurants serve almost any type of fare imaginable, from
Tibetan to African, from Russian to American. Some areas or streets
are dedicated to one type of food, while other areas in the city
offer a variety of styles. The range also varies from
award-winning, fine dining restaurants, situated mainly around the
harbour or attached to five-star hotels, to international fast food
takeaways such as McDonalds or Pizza Hut. Fresh seafood is in
abundance, and steak is a staple that can be found in a selection
of steakhouse chain restaurants scattered around the city.
The main dining areas in the centre of Sydney are The Rocks,
Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Prices vary according
to location, with harbour facing establishments charging more for
their views. Some restaurants are BYO, which means they are
unlicensed, but diners can bring their own wine; sometimes a small
corkage fee will be charged. All restaurants are non-smoking.
