Located at the northern part of Sydney, Circular Quay has a good range of restaurants where visitors can drop by after taking in the sights of the tourist attractions around that area. The restaurants we have visited are located in the Gateway Building, which is a bit of a one-stop shop for dining with a wide variety of restaurants throughout its three floors.

Established in 1989, Chat Thai is a good place for those desiring Thai cuisine. A dish that we enjoyed there was Kai Jiew Bpu (crab meat omelette), which had a wonderful crisp and fluffy texture with chilli sauce on the side for those that like to add a spicy punch to the dish.

Bread and Fill is great for those wanting Australian style café food served at a relatively quick pace. The Breakfast Box is an excellent choice for those desiring the classic Aussie "Big Breakfast" featuring all of the ingredients you would expect. The restaurant also notably changes its menu midday to a selection more appropriate for lunch.

Though not located in as obvious a location compared to the other restaurants in the building Jimmy's Recipe is worth seeking out for yummy Malaysian street food. We particularly enjoyed their Chicken Rice, which had rice with the flavoursome "chicken rice" flavour that is a key part of enjoying the dish. The rice was complemented by pieces of chicken breast cooked to perfection.

For those with a craving for grilled meat dishes, there is the Gateway Building branch of Hurricane's Grill. We enjoyed their Beef Ribs, which had meat that was easy to eat off the bones. The meat had a delectable smoky taste from the barbeque sauce used to glaze them.

Where else have you enjoyed delicious food while at Circular Quay? We would like to know so we can give them a try the next time we visit Sydney.
