There might not be a casino anywhere in the world that is better prepared than Crown to host poker players and their various dining requirements. Poker at Crown was introduced in June 1997, with the first major championship held shortly after in July 1998. The Main Event was a $1,000 buy in Limit Holdem tournament that attracted 74 entries with a $74,000 prize pool.

The ballers of the poker world  or those who aspire to be seen as one will find a number of high-end restaurants on property just a short walk from the poker room. Included here is the world-renowned NOBU, featuring all of the Japanese culinary delights you’d expect, and Mr. Hive Kitchen & Bar, which features Australian-inspired cuisine.

For those on a tighter budget, there is the Sho Noodle Bar, which specializes in, you guessed it, noodles and Dim Sum. Those looking for possibly the best hamburgers in the Southern Hemisphere should try The Merrywell and their signature burger, The Merrywell. If you’re feeling adventurous, maybe give the Oz Burger a shot  it comes with pickled beets.

Finally if you’re in an absolute hurry and hoping for cheap eats, the food court at Crown has something for everybody: noodles, sushi, curries, sandwiches, pizza. It’s all there and just two short escalator rides from the poker room.
