A fairly large, but simple place. A lot of menu items feature pork, but there are usually chicken or vegetarian options. There are also a few beef items. I had the sukiyaki beef don. Quite possibly the tastiest I've had, and great value.

Just an average place for a lunch. I found chicken cutlet pretty good, but the serving is awful - not in normal plate but in paper bowl (on the right in the photo).

This ramen joint is pretty great and the prices are reasonable enough. It usually gets pretty busy so be prepared for the queue.

I love Ichiban. Its one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in Sydney. Don't expect to be fussed over, this place is about serving you authentic Japanese food for cheap prices. Try the chicken karage set or the Ramen soups.

The ramen is true to the Japanese style. Portions are good, food is tasty and flavourful. Can be busy at peak hours but I think the wait was well worth it.

The waiters look a bit tired and have no time for smiles but that is a sign of a busy restaurant! I love this place and I go back all the time for the wonderful they serve.

Noodles were a nice texture. Chicken was delicious but such a small portion. Soup was delicious but on the salty side. Overall: not bad but not spectacular.

I was so surprised how affordable this is. This chain is very popular in Singapore, but the one in Sydney is so different that I'm not sure whether it's the same chain: affordable, focusing on ramen, casual dining place. Long queue during the weekend, does...More

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
