Ordered 2 mains, a rice and 1 entrée between the 2 of us. One of the mains came first then after another 5 minutes the second main came. We asked the wait staff where our entrée was and there was a bit of a flurry if chat between two staff. The entrée came. After we had eaten that and half... More

Nothing good to say about this restuarant. Ordered food and then waited over 30mins. Got part of main course before appetizer, then final dish about 10mins later. Worst Chinese food we have ever experienced and customer service.

Walking about China Town we were looking to enjoy some delicious Chinese food. Since it was the Chinese New Year the restaurants were packed. SERVICE Started off well with friendly female staff welcoming us and running promptly up the stairs to see if there was a table for four. So far, so good as we were quickly ushered upstairs. Table...

The food (cashew chicken) was so salty I needed to drink alot of water. athe chicken tastes like it was soggy and bad. The prawn rice was salty too, but not as bad. The service was disorganized to say the least. we ordered... More

Very family friendly! The ambience and service are faultless! The food is great and fantastic value even on Chinese New Year! They were very accomodating to our kids and brought endless supplies of spoons for them! Thank you.

Came here just looking for Yum Cha for brunch. Very quick service, reasonable price. Food wasn't amazing though and pork buns seemed to be a bit stale. Will look around elsewhere in China Town next time probably.

Terrible and over priced food. For the price you pay and the service you get. You may aswell eat at a food court costing a third of the price rather than this so called restaurant. Staff didnt seem to care if you was waiting for a seat or if your meal was coming or not. We ordered a Lobster dish... More

Decided to have a Chinese in Chinatown Sydney when there for the weekend . Wish we had looked on trip advisor before ordering . Don't pay any attention to the photos on the menu they are misleading. Fancied something with a bit of a kick . Was unable to eat it all because 2/3 of the plate was chilli !... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
