If you are near Central Railway Station, there is a small but interesting anime-ish shop near/behind the Capitol Theatre (near the new Harries Cafe De Wheels (Capitol Square??). Opposite the shop if you go up stairs to where all the Japanese Photo Booths are, there is a small, hidden Gundam shop that as of 2 Fridays ago, was having a 30% off sale (as you go up the escalators, go left...called Dream something).

Yes, my directions are ishe but Im not a Sydney local (was down there as I said two weeks ago on an excursion with School and 'discovered'  these two shops!

If you want Japanese food, I recommend the ramen place near kinokuniya (Japanese Bookshop) which is on Pitt Street/George Street (opposite HobbyCo/QVB)


Hope this helps a bit!

Yes that's hobby dream. The ramen place is called Wagamama. Its a bit westernized but the food is pretty good if a bit overpriced. It's in The Gallleries building opposite the QVB. Kinokuniya is a must visit, since you'll probably be visiting Hobbyco in the QVB anyways.

What kind of footwear are you after? Pretty sure there was a DC Hype in either the QVB or The Galleries if you like fashion sneakers.

Wagamama is on the floor below Kinokuniya and yes, is a massive rip off. The ramen place I was talking about is on the same level as/just outside of Kinokuniya ie via the top of the escalators leading into the bookshop or you can catch the lift up and walk through the 'back door'.
Got a Ramen set (which was huge (HUGE bowl of ramen, rice, salad and gyoza) which was enough for me and my daughter to share) for $14. Only issue is it is very popular and fills up quickly after about 11:30

we could make it a meet up for the Sydney GAFers. Unfortunately I cannot get to QVB any sooner than 12 on Saturday and 12:45 on Sunday. I do have a fair bit of time after school on Friday, though I suspect some of the other GAFers might find it inconvenient.

Which reminds me, who lives in Sydney? I honestly need to make a list
