BLINK and you could miss Regent Place, between Sydney Town Hall and the Event Cinemas complex, on the corner of Bathurst and George streets. The precinct has developed as a bustling Asian food quarter, with eateries including Tenkomori ramen house, Chanoma Cafe (Sydney’s first matcha teahouse) and Vietnamese tuckshop MissChu alongside Regent Place stalwart Chef’s Gallery, while izakaya-style bar Yebisu opens this month. In particular, T&I loves Senyai, which offers authentic Thai cuisine served within a traditional teak house salvaged from rural Thailand. Ayutthaya-born chef Nu Suandokmai (pictured) is turning out delicious homely dishes — highlights include sausages in northeast Thai style, lemongrass-marinated chargrilled chicken and a decadent roti with condensed milk.
