I have to be in Wollongong on business and have 3 free nights so I am looking for recs for dinner. I love anything Asian, especially Thai, Vietnamese or Japanese but would also like to find somewhere focusing on local, seasonal Australian cooking. Any good finds?

      Thanks for Caveau, I suspect that may be where the company are taking us for the group dinner. I am also looking for good cheap Asian eats. My colleague there claims Wollongong is a culinary wasteland, but I know there have to be at least some hidden gems

        Sorry, but I'm backing your colleague on this.

          There's nowhere at least half-way decent to eat? I have 3 meals on my own and really don't want hotel room service. I thought every town in Australia had at least a good Thai or Chinese restaurant

            Lorenzo's is pretty good too
            http://www.lorenzosdiner.com.au

            It's very close to Caveau, and that strip of Keira St is reputed to be a bit of an ''eat street"
