Having been regarded as one of Sydney’s original “posh” suburbs, compared to other of the inner city suburbs, it has numerous restaurants and other places to eat to choose from. Below is a list of Paddington restaurants and contact points of some of our favourites:
Having been to dozens and dozens of Thai restaurant in my life, I have never been to a bad one. I’m sure there are some, but I have never experienced it. Eat Thai in Paddington also has good reviews, the food we had was enjoyable and tasty. Their Laksas are delish and mains include specialities such as Peking Duck Pancakes with Hoi Sin and a very tasty Massaman Curry.
Note: They claim to be a fully licensed restaurant, but they do not allow BYO wine, a time honoured Aussie tradition.

Situated in the historic Four In Hand Pub, there is a select range of dishes available, yet the menu is smallish so the ingredients are fresh. Cooked on a wood fired grill, the steaks and seafood have great flavour and in our experience, done to perfection. They also celebrate special occasions, check their website for more info.

Open early (8am) to late (12pm) every day makes it more of a diner than a café and the food ranges from all day breakfast (till 5pm) to Mexican tacos and Quesadilla, a good range of fresh salads, pastas and risottos. They also have large plate dishes for the hungry, such as Chicken Schnitzel, Pork or Beef Ribs and Pan Fried Salmon Fillets.

This Italian modern continental deli has foods to try and sample. If you like fresh and tasty food, as well as great coffee, a visit here will not disappoint. The friendly and knowledgeable service does not hurt either.

Due to the difficulty of parking in the narrow streets that line Oxord Street, you might find it easier to take one of the many buses from Circular Quay, at the foot of the city. See Circular Quay Map.
There are also plenty of buses that can take you up Oxford St to Paddington on the way to Bondi Junction - bus stops are located at the south end of Hyde Park in the Sydney city CBD.
Further east is Bondi Junction. Buses to Bondi Beach run through this street, another favoured destination for visitors to Sydney.
