Sing's Asian Kitchen
1/5 Nash St
A perpetually buzzy little Pan Asian eatery that holds testament to great things coming in plain packages, Sing’s is one of the inner west’s long-lasting gems.
The décor may be so plain as to be non-existent – think vinyl chairs on tiles and a plastic-sheet-sided terrace but the food is superb.
The menu, which incorporates Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese, is not for the indecisive, with 86 items all up and ranging in price from $5 to $ 15.90. And with most mains averaging $13 including rice Sing’s is one of the best value restaurants in town.
Given that there is no dish likely to disappoint, some of the standout offerings are the green lemongrass seafood, saw leave coconut fish and the red curry duck. The pad thai is amongst the best this side of the river as is the laksa and there are plenty of top vegetarian options too.
Despite it’s popularity with locals and the subsequent sea of diners that packs into the tight space on weekend nights, service is highly efficient and presentation of meals first class.
