Great Value burgers! On this visit the signature Barrio Burger lived up to its name, since it was $10 burger night, it was worth giving the Sweet Bacon Blues a sample also! Timing of this visit was early evening with minimal patrons. The menu looks balanced with your burger staples and fries, amongst the mexican fare. Service was okay and... More

The corn on the cob and the watermelon margarita were the best things ever! The quesadillas, tacos, everything! I loved the cantonese-mexican fusion, and it had a great atmosphere. I am very sad Barrio has closed down, please add the corn to your pop-up stall menu?

At long last more quality Mexican food has come to Australia. Barrio Chino is up with the best. Great food, well priced and great service. We were staying nearby and walked past several times. I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and thought we must give it a try. So pleased we did, but unfortunately it was on our last... More

The food is so tasty, I had corn on the cob, with fetta, which was amazing, I also had a Pulled pork Tortilla. It's looks small at the front of the restaurant but there is heaps of room out the back. Amazing food at a great price, my daughter eats there all the time and took me there.

Recently went to Sidney with a group of friends and stopped into Barrio Chino for a meal on our first night. We opted for a banquet style, and it more than lived up to our expectations. The venue was well presented with a great atmosphere. The food came out at a steady pace, and it was all delicious. I particularly... More

Took a group of about 12 people here on a Saturday night a couple weeks ago (12th December). The place was extremely busy. There was quite a wait for the food and when you have this many people it gets a bit chaotic - difficult for everything ordered to be given to the right people, timing of dishes etc. We... More

Busy and happening restaurant minutes from Kings Cross Station. Seating is tight and it's noisy in there but diners are rewarded with delicious, fresh Mexican food. It was perfect for our Xmas party for 20. The set menus are excellent value and the food has surprisingly diverse flavours and is lovingly prepared.

I went here with a group of friends and had the $55 banquet. None of the food was particularly special or amazing, but it was all nice. The standout for me was the ceviche. I would still recommend the $55 banquet as it's good value for money and let's you try a bit of everything. The staff were friendly however... More

Staying in Kings Cross

Neighbourhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
