House Canteen

Open Daily, 7.30am - late

On the Lower Concourse 

Nestled beneath the sails, House Canteen is a new all-day, canteen inspired dining venue with show-stopping views of Sydney Harbour. Crafted by Solotel Group and Matt Moran, House Canteen offers a vibrant pan-Asian, flavour-led experience suited to those on the run, and those stopping to take in the view.

Start your morning at the bakery with an early Single O coffee and BadeBoy Bakehouse donut while you watch the city wake up and the accompanying harbour's ‘commuter theatre’. At lunchtime, catch up with friends whilst sampling the Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese inspired dishes, or grab something on the run from our grab-n-go selection. Or join us pre- or post-theatre for a late-night snack and a fine wine.

Take a seat under the sails for inventive and fresh food with a view.

For a relaxed dining experience, please allow an hour for pre-theatre dining.


Reservations are only available Monday to Thursday between 12 noon and 3pm. All tables outside of this time period are operated on a walk-in basis.
