Where To Go After Midnight For The Best Late-Night Eats In Sydney

It’s no secret that Sydney’s nightlife has taken a beating lately. Whether you’re leaving the club or just fancy a midnight snack, finding good late-night eats in Sydney  can feel like an eternal struggle.

And look, we’ve got no beef with a dirty street pie or a cheeky mixed kebab, but it’s also worth noting that there are still plenty of inner-city venues dishing up delicious eats.

So, if you’re out past midnight and on the hunt for a decent feed, we have you covered. Here’s where to get good late-night eats in Sydney after midnight.

Fried chicken and waffle fries? Yes please! Thirsty Bird, the little gem in Potts Point, is open until 1:30am on Fridays and 3am on Saturdays, meaning you can get your deep-fried chicken fix well after midnight.

Plus, they deliver, if you’re feeling extra cheeky.

Where: Thirsty Bird, 2–14 Bayswater Road, Potts Point

How late? 3am


Golden Century Seafood Restaurant

Golden Century is a staple, and practically king when it comes to late-night eats in Sydney. They serve up classic Cantonese eats and fresh seafood until 4am every single day. Yes it’s a dumpling place open until 4am, but don’t be mistaken, it’s no dive.

Besides, can you really go wrong with some salt and pepper squid and barbecue pork? Get in our bellies.

Where: Golden Century, 393–399 Sussex Street, Sydney

How late? 4am

Looking to carb load? Give Big Poppa’s a visit, home to good wine and good times. Oh, and a menu of 26 different cheeses. Yes, 26 different cheeses.

Settle in, order some vino and pair it with a cheeseboard. They also have a mouth-watering dessert and cocktail menu, but come on… 26 different cheeses!

Where: Big Poppa’s, 96 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst.

How late? 3am

Don’t judge this book by its cover, Indian Home Diner is an absolute hidden gem. Nestled between shops on Oxford Street, it’s easily overlooked during the day, but order a butter chicken and some cheesy garlic naan after a couple of vinos and tell us it’s not the best thing you’ve ever tasted.

You won’t regret it.

Where: Indian Home Diner, 86 Oxford Street, Paddington

How late? 3am


Mr Crackles

OK but are you really from Sydney if you’ve never messily eaten Mr Crackles after leaving Stonewall or Palms on a Saturday night? Didn’t think so.

We’re convinced there’s something truly magical about this sandwich shop that dishes up tender and delicious hunks of roast pork and golden crackling on delicious white bread rolls. Plus, they have more sides that you can poke a stick at.

Mr Crackles, we love you.

Where: Mr Crackles, 155 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst

How late? 4:30am

Enjoy! And behave on your Uber ride home, please.
