They cost .35 Australian. Lines queued up to buy them by the dozen. There is a restaurant on one side of the little cream-puff window and a bakery featuring dim-sum items on the other...Reasonable steam bun prices.

Food was really nice, and coupled with great service. Restaurant is sub ground level. The restaurant was virtually empty when we had dinner at 7pm on a Friday night and we were on a Scoopon deal. Value was excellent. I would go back and pay...More

We were on a special deal with limited choices but what we had to choose from was more than adequate. There was a good choice across a variety of different dishes. Particularly liked the eggplant dish and the beef was nice and spicy. The special...More

I eat here a couple of lunches a month with colleagues. I have also been here with family groups including children. The place is friendly and efficient and the food great. Particular favourites of mine are the steamed perch and the shantung chicken.

We were seeking Authentic chinese food and went on someone's recommendation. We were not dissapointed. Although far more elaborate (and expensive) than authentic food in China, the menu met the brief. We went for lunch mid week so the place was full of high profile...More

Ate here with a colleague. The food is at best average. Serves are small. Decor is tired. I'm easy to please, but the Chinese restaurants in Sydney think it's 1985. They are average and expensive. There are options like Abb Air Thai or Viet Town...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
