Once a handful of Thai-focused grocery stores operated on Campbell and Pitt streets, under mostly Chinese names. Now the area is out and proud as the heart of Thai Sydney, the source of chilli-laden boxed snacks, rice-flour sweets and authentic Thai eating.

Visiting hours for non-Thais tend to be midday and early evening while natives choose an off-peak schedule. Chat Thai is permanently busy with a knot of patrons waiting outside; the buzz starts with window theatre - Thai chefs grilling marinated meats, prawns and squid on little skewers and expert dessert hands flicking flavoured sticky rice dough balls into simmering sweet syrup.
