The best foodie venues for kids’ birthday parties around Chatswood

18 June, 2021

Get into party planning mode

If your child was one of the many who had birthday plans and parties cancelled in 2020 due to “the pandemic that shall not be named,” they certainly weren’t alone. And while changes in restrictions can still happen at any time, here in Chatswood, we’re generally pretty lucky in what we’re allowed to do this year. 

This means that when it comes to party planning for your child’s birthday, you can organise things with a fairly high degree of confidence. And if your child missed out on celebrating last year, you can big up the celebrations to a level that’s a bit extra this year.

And if your kiddo is a bit of a foodie? Well, Chatswood is bursting with options whether you’re looking for a celebration with their friends or a family dinner that will ensure everyone is happy.

Best party ideas for little kids

Way back in the day when dinosaurs roamed the earth (you know, the 1980s and 1990s), one of the coolest parties for little kids was a McDonald’s party. Now, good old Maccas at Chatswood Interchange is more of a ‘grab and go’ outlet (and McDonald’s has actually put kids parties on hold during the pandemic), but that doesn’t mean you can’t create your own version of a McDonald’s party!

Yes, the Golden Arches is available via delivery. For a low-effort party that all the kids will love, why not head to one of the many fantastic playgrounds around Chatswood on the north shore, and organise a delivery of Happy Meals for everyone using Uber Eats, Door Dash or your preferred delivery platform. 

Order and pick up a cake from Bakerie Atelier, Breadtop or even Woolworths, and you’re good to go! A box of donuts from Krispy Kreme is always a favourite too.

Best party ideas for tweens and teens

OK, while the little ones will be happy to play at the park with their mates, the bigger kids might take a bit more pleasing. But don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of ideas!

  • Start the celebrations off with a fun activity, like putt-putt at Holey Moley or a round of ten-pin bowling at Strike (they’ve also got laser tag, karaoke and escape rooms!)
  • Then it’s a short stroll to Chatswood Interchange for lunch or dinner
  • Great casual picks include bento boxes for everyone at Akira Sushi, ramen bowls at Ippudo or Korean fried chicken at Chicken V
  • Or opt for a longer dining experience at a restaurant like China Chili or Amah by Hojiak (Sydney’s newest Malaysian restaurant in District Dining at Chatswood Interchange)
