Sydney International Airport recognised for outstanding food & beverage offerings

Sydney International Airport has just been awarded the world's best airport food and beverage operator at the inaugural Airport Food & Beverage Awards held in the UK on 25 January, 2011.

The awards were a highlight of the first worldwide Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Conference, which attracted 170 delegates from across the globe who voted in a host of different categories, including best airport bar and restaurant.  Sydney International Airport claimed top honours winning best overall airport food and beverage offer (10-25 million passengers).  The event brought together airports, operators and suppliers with a view of recognising and analysing best practice in a sector that is vital to the future of the airport industry.

Sydney International Airport's recently completed tempting food precinct caters for every taste and appetite ranging from affordable kid friendly family favourites and healthy inexpensive meals to gourmet delights set to impress the most discerning palates.  

Over 20 eateries before Customs are perfect for those wanting to spend time with friends and family before setting off on their adventure; while the world class eateries after Customs provide the perfect place to relax and treat yourself to a gourmet meal ahead of a long journey.  For those looking for an alternative to airline food, there is also an array of appetising 'grab & go' options to take on board.

Reflecting Sydney's eclectic mix of cultures and nationalities, you can satisfy a craving for Japanese at Itacho Sushi or Asakaze, enjoy yum cha at China Grand Restaurant, treat yourself at Silk Road or Sahara Grill; feast on authentic Italian at Rossini's or Trattoria Prego; find old favourites like Oporto, Sumo Salad or Subway; or discover some of Sydney's favourite drinking and dining establishments including, Danks Street Depot and Bambini Wine Room.
