I love travelling and writing, meeting people and experiencing foodie places.

Across from the busy shopping and restaurant area of Harbourside is the Cockle Bay precinct of restaurants and cafes. Though many of these eateries have nice views over the water, it's a busy pedestrian district. If you're after a quieter vicinity to eat out though, walk to the back streets near the Sydney Aquarium where there are some lovely restaurants to satisfy the hungry crowd.
We chose a number of dishes for us to share, including San Choy Bow, Haian Chicken, Nasi Goreng, Chicken Pepper, Beef Rendang, and Kapitan Chicken. There may have been one or two more dishes, but the dishes arrived thick and fast, so it was hard to keep up with the various foodie names. I just enjoyed the experience, as did all in our group.
The staff were very helpful with any questions, and the service was professional. The dishes at The Malaya are not cheap; perhaps customers pay for the location. But from famished to full, our stomachs were not lacking.
If you venture to the restaurants in the Darling Harbour area on Saturday nights, you will be treated to a fireworks display at 8:30 pm. It was colourful, exciting and spectacular. Be warned, though, it's busy. Darling Harbour attracts locals and overseas visitors with its huge array of eateries and the many attractions that circle the waterway.
