Can't stop, won't stop partying? Here are some of the Good Food Guide's best places in Sydney where the approaching stroke of midnight does not mean you cannot get any food to fuel the fun.

Chat Thai

For many Chat devotees, the night owl supper menu is where it's at, offering northern Thai-style grills, five different som tums, congee, fermented rice noodles and more. Don't forget the Thai sweets. (Daily, supper till 2am)

Frankies Pizza by the Slice

The rock, the roll, the pizza. Sydney's answer to CBGB in New York delivers late-night cheesy treats to the starving and beer-soaked alike. And the best bit? You can order all the way through to 3am in any part of the bar. (Daily till 3am)

Golden Century, Sussex Street

Ask any Sydney chef worth their sea salt flakes where they eat after service and there's a 90 per cent chance they'll send you here for pipis in XO sauce over a bed of fried vermicelli, a whole mud crab and a handful of Tsingtaos. (Daily till 4am)

The Hayberry

It's part burger bar, part bar bar, all fun at this newish Willoughby diner. Order a classic burger and make your friends get the pulled pork nachos. Chilli cheese fries, too, if the cardiologist is on speed dial. (Tue-Sat till midnight)

97 Willoughby Road, Crows Nest, (02) 8084 0816, thehayberry.com.au

Hemmesphere​

Late night cocktails are what these guys do best, but it's a little known fact that the snacking around witching hour is actually pretty excellent. Bring on the gyoza and chicken karaage​. (Supper menu post 10.30pm Wed-Sat till close)

Henrietta Supper Club

After a late-night snack while you hang from the chandeliers drinking a stinger? We thought so. Enter Henrietta Supper Club. This is one of the few proper bar/restaurants left in Sydney where you can order food in all the way through to 4.30am. (Daily till 4.30am)

Level 1, 292–294 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst, (02) 9356 3429

Intercontinental Supper Club

There are few places in Sydney you can take in this kind of view while eating your weight in Holy Goat La Luna post-midnight. Make sure to call ahead to guarantee a crack at the epic champagne list, too. (Wed-Sat till late)

117 Macquarie Street, Sydney, (02) 9253 9000, icsydney.com.au

Mamak

There are queues down the street at dinner time for the feather-light roti and pretty excellent nasi lemak, but head over post-midnight for a better chance of getting a table straight away. Teh tariks for all. (Fri-Sat 2am close)

15 Goulburn Street, Sydney, (02) 9211 1668, mamak.com.au

Mr Wong

Seen an early show and stuck for a snack? This fancy ode to all things Cantonese will sort you out with roast duck, dumpling platters and some delightfully old school deep-fried ice-cream with caramel sauce. (Thu-Sat till midnight)

3 Bridge Lane, Sydney, (02) 9240 3000, merivale.com.au/mrwong

Palmer & Co

If  Mr Wong proves an impossible mission (and well it might – it's rare for these guys to have a quiet night), check out this adjoining bar, offering a super late night menu of cured meats and more. (Daily till 3am)

Abercrombie Lane, Sydney, (02) 9240 3000, merivale.com.au/palmerandc
