Arisun: Affordable Korean Cuisine in Sydney's Chinatown

Arisun: Affordable Korean Cuisine in Sydney’s Chinatown

Arisun has been a staple in Sydney’s Chinatown for decades, offering a blend of Korean and Japanese flavours that has made it a favourite among food enthusiasts.

Renowned for its signature beer towers and Korean Fried Chicken platters, Arisun has become quite the popular late-night destination for those looking for bold flavours and a vibrant dining experience.

Upon walking into this iconic restaurant, you are met with the venue’s eccentric, bustling vibes, starting with the large neon sign illuminating “Arisun”, photographic screens showing off dishes on their menu and a monument of their famous noodles. Arisun immediately captivates with its warm timber panelling, exposed brick walls and large dining tables, perfect for groups of friends or family.

When it comes to the food, you’re in for a real treat with the menu infusing the flavours of Korea and Japan and featuring a smorgasbord of options. Must try’s from the menu include their famous Korean Fried Chicken, the Pork Belly Black Bean Noodle, the halal-friendly Fish Cake & Udon Hot Pot, the irresistible Pork Katsu Bento Box and the seductive Prawn & Scallop XO Fried Rice – each mouthful is a symphony of taste and texture. Super delicious!

There are also some delectable flame-grilled Korean BBQ offerings to explore including their Spicy Gochujang Boneless Chicken or Wagyu Brisket Bulgogi while a separate menu is also available upon request for vegetarians.

Embracing traditional Asian values, the menu has been designed for sharing, perfect for big groups or families dining out on a budget. For this reason, we highly recommend the Chicken Tasting Platter with Fries & Coleslaw – the ultimate dish to share with loved ones. This one gives you the chance to sample some of their best fried chicken options and mark our words, they’re absolutely finger-licking good! The Snow Cheese Chicken (deep-fried chicken topped with a white cheesy powder) is a stand-out – sweet, addictive and something you must try if you haven’t before.

To wash it all down, Arisun boasts an extensive drinks menu featuring an array of cocktails such as the iconic Gangham Style (vodka, pineapple, lychee & lime) and their signature Arisun Idol (original soju, vanilla, lime, and pineapple). There’s also a large selection of beers on tap including Korean favourites such as Asahi and Terra alongside Australian brewed classics. Additionally, Arisun offers a diverse range of Korean and Japanese spirits as well as soft drinks, juices, and teas for the non-alcoholic drinkers.

To complete the Arisun experience, the restaurant offers a range of promotions, including a daily happy hour from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, ensuring that customers can indulge in their favourite beverages at a great value whilst relishing in the vibrant ambience that Arisun offers.
