A beautiful meal and a variety of flavours infused. We had the banquet for $75.00 well worth it and gave the pallet a taste of the flavoursome food the crab meat dumpling very tasty. The duck was superbly cooked and tasted amazing. A must try Asian restaurant that did not disappoint . The service was good and good was arriving... More

The place was OK, the food was ordinary, for the ratings it gets I was surprised, everything was just OK which is not good enough in Sydney, I was expecting spice temple or better, not even a patch as the menu was seriously limited, I really don't write bad reviews but I hope anyone reading this will not set the...

Lovely place, fabulous wait staff. The food was beautifully presented but not really that outstanding. Although the blood orange duck was pretty good. Extensive wine list. Bit overpriced for what it was.

Food is wonderful - main problem is choosing from a variety of temptations, had the spanner crab dumplings and pork sung Choi bau , both superb. Only problem was service, left for longer than I needed but ultimately enjoyed a great meal. Expensive but justified by quality.

My partner and I booked dinner at Billy Kwong for a special occasion. Having heard good things, we were really looking forward to it. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told that four dishes from the menu were not available. It's not a huge menu so that narrows things down quite a bit. We decided to try the... More

We were advised to go for the 7 course menu. Excellent advice and every mouthful was delicious. I love the very subtle use of Australian ingredients in Chinese style dishes and everything is top quality. The floor staff were very professional but friendly and helped us choose wine that matched well.

Fantastic food, the quality is supreme @ Billy Kwong,friendly staff with great knowledge of the wine list - that matches the food perfectly - and a funky atmosphere that was buzzy but not overpowering. It was a perfect place for a party of 6. Definitely worth a return visit with the gorgeous one!

Restaurant has moved from our last visit. You can book now which is great. Had the tasting menu. Fantastic flavours with every course. Unpretentious and very friendly with excellent service.. The wine waiter was very helpful as matching wine with this spicy food is difficult . The crab and prawn dumplings were a highlight as was the duck. Such a... More

7 courses where each of the course items did not disappoint and reasonably priced. I have to add our waiter is a Heston look alike who provided great service. The kitchen is in open view and Kylie Kwong is the midst calling the shots. I would happily come again as their tasting menu is seasonal.

Our first night in Sydney and we were thrilled to be able to have dinner at this highly recommended restaurant. The staff were friendly and most helpful to us tourists. We enjoyed the prawn wontons, steamed pork buns and caramelized braised wallabee with black beans and chillies. Finished with the ginger pannacotta with plum sauce and the most delicious chocolate...
