Newtown is one of Sydney's best suburbs for foodies. Wander along King Street on any given night and the delicious smells wafting out from the plethora of restaurants you come across will soon have you licking your lips.

No matter what sort of cuisine you feel like devouring, chances are you'll be able to find it in Newtown. From a fragrant Thai curry to a gourmet Italian pasta and everything in between, there is quite literally an overwhelming number of restaurants to choose from.

But which of these many great eateries is Newtown's best restaurant?

A quick search of the WeekendNotes website gives you an idea of the sheer volume and variety of dining options in Newtown. Turning Japanese? Try some sushi from Kai on King. Craving some baklava? Try Steki Taverna Greek Restaurant.

Got a hankering for pizza and/or pasta? Pull up a pew at Cicciolina Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria. Alternatively, you could take your pick of one of the suburb's many Thai eateries. There's certainly no shortage of them to choose from.

But with so many places to choose from, how do you decide where to treat your tastebuds? I had a good pizza recently at Twelve, followed by an equally delicious tiramisu. I've also heard plenty of good things about the food served up at Bloodwood, but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

Hartsyard Restaurant is well worth visiting, while Thai Pothong would probably be my pick when it comes to Thai food.

My favourite is at Mrs Macquarie's Chair, you get a beautiful view of the bridge and Opera House right next to one another.

Hartsyard, OldTown (deliciously different Italian), 3 Olives (awesome Greek), Hikaru are the best in my view. There's also a new-ish cafe down the south end (whose name currently escapes me).

Many good choices around Newtown/Enmore. My picks would be Linda's; Pho 236; Hartsyard; Silverbean, Nepalese Kitchen and the African place near the Duke Hotel/Enmore Theatre. At the other end of the scale, I've never understood the gushing reviews for Thai Pothong. Been there a few times over the years (most recently in April) and have yet to have a satisfying meal. Most dishes are OK, nothing special, many quite bland. And at every visit we have had at least one dish that's inedible or nasty tasting. And it's much dearer than the many other Thai and Vietnamese places around.

Ah yes, Silverbean is good. Sadhana - raw food kitchen is also great. I havent tried the Nepalese Kitchen or the African place and agree with the comments about Thai Pothong - its overrated

The bests restaurants in Newtown are the ones that say open longer than 6 months. There are a lot of restaurants that pop up with the best of intentions but dont exist long enough for people to discover if they are good or not. Being a nearby resident, King Street is best on a weekday between 10am-5pm in my opinion.

Tamanas North Indian Diner is the best Indian diner in Newtown. Restaurant is there for 21 years and it is now part for Newtown.
It serves best North Indian Cuisine with very reasonable price.
