If you are looking for a classy place to eat, this is not it. The furniture is ordinary - laminex table tops, melamine crockery, disposable chopsticks. Decor reminiscent of street side dining in Hong Kong. However, if you are looking for absolutely fantastic cuisine reminiscent of street side dining in Hong Kong, then this is the place to eat. A...

I will begin by saying if you are not into decor then you will like Dixon House Food Court. The place is down stairs and doesn't look the best. Boxes stored in corners, people shouting to one another across the hall. Tables and chairs are from the 60's or 70' BUT the food is GREAT. Like any usual Chinese food... More

Try their noodles. They are still cheap and delicious but the place really needs updating. Not sure what their renovation plan is.

This eatery has been around for years and never disappoints. Whatever your fancy for Asian food you will find it at this great eatery. Whether its lunch, dinner in between or after. Reasonably priced, casual atmosphere and loads of variety to choose from. Very clean considering a cafeteria environment.

These country bumpkins just didn't realise is was the Chinese New Year Eve! What a crowd. We decided to leave as no restaurant had any vacancies at 5.3opm but on passing the Dixon Court Food Court we decided to look in. No crowd yet. The food was fantastic, cheap and plentiful. Most of our dishes came from a busy little... More

A handy choice when you consider to eat veggies in CBD and happen to like Thai cuisine. I like the refreshing wonton soup. The food can be a bit oily and spicy though. That said, plenty of choices to suit your adventurous palates.

Sadly the Dixon House Food Court is currently closed. We went there today and it doesn't look like they will be re-opening any time soon. A few weeks ago they got shut down for a gas explosion which injured many people. Feeling very sad as we loved this place and hope they do re-open it soon. It was the best... More

While spending 8 days in Sydney we ate here on 3 separate occasions. From the outside there is little to tell you about the wonderful foods available at the many different stalls, and the different sorts of tasty Asian treats in this jewel in Chinatown. Just down the steps you will find dishes from various countries, good sized servings of... More

We have a favourite food outlet at Dixon House - with lovely ambience good flavoured food in large servings. It's a big noisy - mainly from the food outlets themselves. A cacophony of bingo numbers - it's a bit demanding. So don't plan a romantic dinner just go for the food.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
