King Street Wharf is a waterside neighbourhood in Sydney's beautiful Darling Harbour.

With an abundance of waterfront dining options, King Street Wharf offers something for everyone and is a popular place for a fun night out.

By day, King Street Wharf is teaming with tourists and city office workers indulging in a long lunch.

Come sun-down, the bars of King Street Wharf fill up with suits unwinding after a hard day at work.

By night, the wharf transforms into a cosmopolitan playground of couples and friends out for a good night on the town, indulging in fine food on the beautiful waterfront.

The many restaurants and entertainment venues in King Street Wharf often run promotions throughout the year. Keep an eye on the King Street Wharf website for current promotions.

My favourite restaurant at King Street Wharf has to be The Malaya. The Malaya serves up authentic south east Asia cuisine that is consistently delicious, including their legendary Laksa, Otak Otak and Rendang. You can also attempt to recreate some of The Malaya's magic by following their recipes on their website.

Other great restaurants at King Street Wharf include Kobe Jones, I Thai, La Cita, Wharf Teppanyaki, Vessel Italian & Bar, Nick's Bar & Grill, Steersons Steakhouse, Casa Di Nico and Georges Bar & Grill.
