We had a fantastic meal here. Great variety of menu choices, very good service and food was very good. Having lived in Bangkok for two years and a regular traveller to the region over the last 20 years I feel i am a reasonable judge. While not the best in Sydney definitely one of the better choices on the northern... More

Was very jaded with Thai food and had to be persuaded to go to Yok. It's is absolutely excellent. Better than any Thai food I've eaten anywhere in the world - including Thailand!

caught up with some old friends and wanted to try somewhere we had seen but never been. For entrée we all had spring rolls and agreed they were best we have ever had - we chose three different mains and were very impressed - generous sized servings and well prepared and presented. Once again agreement that this is best Thai... More

We were in Manly to attend a conference and happened upon this restaurant where they were prepared to feed us late one night. Excellent, innovative Thai food that we so enjoyed it became our restaurant of choice for most of the stay. Hope to get back there when next in Sydney as it is worth going out of the way... More

Went to the Bai Yok for a meal last night. As it was a Wednesday night there was no need to boo, however the restaurant was actually busier than expected. As it was a warm night we decided to sit outside. There are about 10 tables set up adjacent to the restaurant and the atmosphere was very good. We had... More

Went there for dinner. No complaints at all. Food excellent, staff friendly, all the ingredients were fresh, and prepared solely for you. No ping on the microwave..... Does not have many tables so I would definitely book on a busy night. Only slight concern was the service was that rapid, I had ordered and eaten a starter and main meal... More

Went here on a fairly cold Friday night in mid June recently, no booking, just turned up and got a seat outside. There was outdoor heating which was good. We had three dishes from the tapas menu, which looks interesting, we were almost tempted to just have lots of tapas and no mains, they look that good. Had the special... More

We have been dining at (Bai )Yok since it opened 20 years ago in Crows Nest and were thrilled to discover Yok here in Manly. Jay does a great job and while they can get very busy, the food is always great. We have never been disappointed. I love their new Thai Tapas menu which they introduced after opening their... More

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
