    AMP Tower / Centrepoint: Cheap Asian food

    by martin_nl Written Nov 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the day you can get 5 dollar boxes filled with delicious Asian food at a number of outlets in this foodcourt. However if you want to have a cheap evening meal I suggest coming back here at around 3pm or maybe even 4pm for some cheap deals. The food is generally discounted to 4dollar and sometimes even 3dollar. If there is only like 5 or less boxes left and the price is already 3 dollar, say you give them 2 and generally they say yes!! Back in your hostel you can microwave the boxes for a couple of minutes... et voila, a meal for only 2 or 3 $dollar Now you can't cook that yourself for that amount, can you?

    I got to eat for the child's rate and I ate more than my grandmother

    Favorite Dish: I had spring rolls which I love, and a good lunch. But the view is more important than the food.

    Sydney Tower 360 Buffet: Lunch Above Sydney

    by grandmaR Updated Sep 1, 2012

    Things I picked for lunch
    4 more images

    Two things about this restaurant.

    1) Lunch is cheaper than dinner

    Lunch Mon-Sat $55 Sun $59.50
    Dinner Mon-Thurs $69.50 Fri-Sun $85
    Children 3-12 $25
    Kids Eat Free for lunch and dinner every Monday and Tuesday, all year round. Promotion is limited to one child per full paying adult. Dining is limited to 1.5hr seatings. Reservations recommended.

    2) Don't go in bad weather (they have a weather forecast on their website) or before you have some familiarity with Sydney. We went the day after we did the Hop On Hop Off Bus.

    We scootered into the tower and up to the fourth floor where the restaurant desk was. Unlike in Seattle and Toronto and Dallas, this tower does not allow you to the observation deck from the restaurant - you have to pay that separate. Also unlike other towers you are not given a map of the surrounding area so that you know what you are looking at.

    It took 90 minutes for us to do a complete circuit. The weather was gorgeous and clear and sunny.

    Favorite Dish: A buffet is not usually a good option for me because I don't eat that much. My granddaughter's meal was half the price of mine and she made better use of it than I did.

    I don't know exactly what we had as the dishes weren't labeled

    My granddaughter had an onion ring, spring rolls, rice, some pasta, green beans, grapes and other fruit and what looked like a brownie with a glob of pink frosting on it.

    AMP Tower/Centrepoint.: OK ????

    by jlanza29 Updated May 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great views, food just OK !!!

    With a set menu and set price this is an OK place to eat.....I would recommend lunch which is cheaper instead of dinner.......The food isn't the attraction.....the views is what gets people to come to this place.......sitting on top of the tower the views are stunning !!!! The food is just plain OK !!!! nothing to rave about !!!! It would have been better at lunch !!!

    Favorite Dish: The wine selection was impressive...with all types of wines...of course heavy on the domestic Austrailian wines. Great buy was a Penfold's Bin 407 1999 at $28..... that's the price it sells at a wine store in the United States....and here it was the price at the restaurant !!!!!

    AMP Tower / Centrepoint: Views at night are spectacular!

    by eel1979 Written Jun 13, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food - Not bad, but nothing to write to home about.

    Ambience - Tables and seating are quite compact. If you wanted to, you could listen to the next tables conversation or give them a massage, its that compact!

    The views are breathe taking. Its a revolving restaurant (revolves 360 degrees in approximately 50-60 mins). At night, you cannot stop looking down at the surroundings. The perfect place for a tourist for out-of-town freind/family

  • AMP Tower/Centrepoint.: See all of Sydney while you eat

    by grkboiler Updated Dec 15, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can see it sticking out on the left

    The food isn't why you come here. The best part of eating here is the great view of Sydney. The revolving restaurant is a great place to eat on your first night here, if you don't mind eating things that are just, well... edible is the only way I can put it.

    Favorite Dish: You can order off a menu on the 1st level of the restaurant, but I think the all-you-can-eat buffet on the 2nd level is the way to go. It costs about AU$50 for adults and $20 for children. You can get seafood, roasted and grilled meats, salads, oriental foods, and desserts.

    Try the Australian specialties of kangaroo, emu, and camel.

    The Rocks Area

    by keeweechic Updated Feb 21, 2004

    The Rocks has a great selection of very fine restaurants and cafes. You can eat inside old restored storehouses or al fresco on the sidewalks. Sydney's has great seafood and ethnic cuisine from around the world as well of course as the good old Aussie Barbie.

    There were a few restaurants I went to, one of which was down next to the Opera House and I can't remember the name but the food was good and the view was spectacular.

    One I certainly remember was the Sydney Tower Restaurant on top of Centrepoint Tower. The views stretch out to coastal beaches and inland to the Blue Mountains.
    .
    Level one is a la carte and level two is self-select. It's fully licensed. By night of courses it's magic.

    We ate out in several places in Sydney, but the most spectacular was The Centre Point Tower, which had a great buffet on the 2nd level of the rotating tower. The first level is waiter service.
    The view from the table is fantastic, the restaurant rotates, so you get to see all of the outlying areas of sydney. It is over a 1000 feet high.

    Favorite Dish: Ostrich, Kangaroo, Camel, Seafood

    A bit touristy but try the revolving restaurant on top of Sydney Tower. The buffet lunch or dinner serves up the usual fare but also gives you a chance to taste exotic meats like camel, kangaroo, emu etc.

    Amazing view, especially at night, of all the city.
