Multicultural dining in Sydney

Like most global cities with a rich multicultural heritage, Sydney has something for everyone's taste buds when it comes to cuisines and dining styles. Acclaimed chefs, great produce and enthusiastic diners combine with a laidback lifestyle to give Sydney's dining scene a flavour all its own and, with more than 140 different cultures, one that's constantly evolving.

If halal food is your preferred style, you'll find many restaurants and cafes in inner-city locations such as Darlinghurst and Circular Quay, Chinatown and Surry Hills. Further afield, suburbs such as Auburn and Lakemba, Ryde and Strathfield offer authentic halal food. Styles range from Persian to Chinese, Lebanese, Turkish, Indian, Pakistani, Malaysian, Indonesian and Singaporean. Sydney's halal restaurants are great value, with many serving delicious home-style food at good home-style prices.

If Indian cuisine is more your style, you'll also find plenty of choice in Sydney. A few of the best Indian restaurants close to the city centre include Aki's at Woolloomooloo, Malabar in Darlinghurst and Nilgiri's at St Leonards.
