About
Our Strand Arcade store which is located at the George Street end is our first Sydney store. The Strand, dating back to 1891, is a historic site that suits our company’s image perfectly. The heritage aspects of the store have been carefully preserved and our fitout has been specially designed to complement it beautifully – jarrah cabinetwork, marble, glass, and pendant lighting. The Strand store trades 7 days a week – because our aim is to introduce Haigh’s to absolutely everyone who lives in, works in or visits the Harbour Bridge city.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely one of the top chains. The latest batch seemed more chocolatey than before with some having quite spectacular complementary flavours, especially the lemon.

This store is famous for its lovely chocolates. Having travelled extensively in Europe we can say that it is hard to compete with the European chocolate boutiques, like those in Belgium, Netherlands, France and elsewhere. Haigh's comes close.... However Haigh's prices are way too expensive. On our last visit we had a look but decided against buying anything.

I went at The Strand Arcade and specifically look for Haigh's Chocolates due to it's popularity and because somebody recommended and told me that chocolates here are the best. It did not disappoint me.
As soon as I walked inside, I was very overwhelmed of the huge selection and chocolate types/flavors that they have. I was staring at their counter because I don't know what to pick from their selections. The guy in the counter was very helpful and attended to my questions. he even let me pick one that I would like to try. I ended up getting 10pcs from their specialty chocolates and bought some almonds dark chocolate and some other packs that I took home in the Philippines.
Tip: Ask for their best seller and don't hesitate to ask questions if you don't know what to choose.

Wonderful chocolates but they always seem to taste better from a location like the Strand, QVB or Block Arcade in Melbourne. The presentation is wonderful.

This store is at the George Street entrance to the Strand Arcade. The chocolates are absolutely beautiful, although they're not particularly cheap. Their friendly and helpful staff are always happy to provide samples to try before buying. A must for any chocolate lover to visit.

When ever we visit Sydney, Haigh's is a must stop. Stocking up on frogs and trademark speckles. Love free samples on purchase.
