The Eight continues to set the bar for the best yum cha in Sydney. Located on the top floor of Market City in Chinatown, dining at this large 750-person establishment is a loud and lively affair. Trolleys stacked with bamboo-baskets are filled with traditional yum cha delicacies like tender dumplings and barbecued pork and The Eight’s famous mango pancakes are guaranteed to curb your hunger pangs.
A 10-minute walk from Central Station, Sydney’s Chinatown is a hive of activity morning through night. Stop by Paddy’s Markets (Wednesday to Sunday) for Aussie knickknacks before filling up on yum cha or eating like a local at one of Chinatown’s underground food halls. A free shuttle (route 555) runs from Central Station to Circular Quay via George Street and the Light Rail also stops at Haymarket MLR.
