Sydney Airport (SYD)

Restaurants in Sydney Airport (SYD)

An outpost of Darlinghurst’s iconic 50-year-old Italian café, this full-service restaurant is the perfect spot for a “flat white” (latte) and sandwich—go for chicken and avocado on a potato-and-rosemary roll.

This U.K.-based noodle chain specializes in pan-Asian-style dishes, such as ramen with beef, chiles, coriander, lime, and red onion; otsunaaji salad of avocado, spinach, and sweet potato in a soy-lime dressing; and excellent prawn gyoza dumplings.

It may not be the healthiest snack food, but it surely is the tastiest: a meat pie from the legendary Harry’s, a take-out restaurant that began in 1938 as a late-night food truck parked outside the Woolloomooloo naval dockyard.

Craving something sweet? Don’t miss the super-fresh gelatos at this small café; try one of its down under flavors—Queensland mango and passion fruit, Tasmanian fig, and New Zealand strawberry.

Sydneysiders are fanatical when it comes to coffee, so when they endorse a brand, like the 51-year-old Sydney-based Vittoria, it’s been carefully vetted. Viaggio makes a great cup (with Vittoria, naturally) and sells muffins, pastries, and croissants to go.

One of the latest additions to the airport’s revamped food court is this excellent Nepalese restaurant, which serves the country’s traditional spicy curries.

Hands down, the best fast food in the Sydney Airport is Oporto’s Portuguese chicken Bondi burger in a chile piri-piri sauce with ginger, lemon, and garlic.

The traditional Italian fare (ravioli with spinach and mushrooms; risotto with chicken, bacon, green beans, and arugula) at this casual restaurant is decent, but the real reason to come here is the large beer garden/sundeck set outside beside the runways.

An outpost of the popular Waterloo restaurant, the Danks Street Depot at Sydney Airport is located in Terminal T1 International, across from check-in counter H.
