North Western Chinese Cuisine at its simplest and tastiest. Staff are very busy but always respectful and not pushy 😮 Food is simply but delicious and tasty. Due to its location this restaurant is frequented by many Asians, trust me that's a good sign. Don't forget to BYO

My office tends to come to sea bay on a regular basis. I am advised that you need to get there before the lunch rush or you won't get a seat. I got there with a group just prior to midday and we were able to get a seat. 12 steamed dumplings for about $13....can't really complain for a sit... More

Sea Bay is a regular post-rugby-watching haunt for us. Generous servings, interesting range of dishes and the right mix of mild-spicy-hot dishes. We never leave hungry, disappointed or feeling we've paid over the odds. Don't visit expecting flash service or haute cuisine - what Sea Bay has to offer is so much better and a fraction of the price.

We came here because it was so well rated. The restaurant was almost empty on a week night and that should have been a red flag enough. We ordered noodles, lamb, and dumplings. The dumplings were fresh but had no flavor at all. I had to pour the cause inside to give it any flavor at all. The noodles were... More

Affordable Asian food; quite busy so either arrive a bit early or be prepared to wait during lunch. The dumplings are large and a good size, not like any usually ones but still very good. The noodle quality is also well done.

This vibrant busy CBD restaurant has a wide range of Chinese food on offer. It's best to go with several people so you can try more items - there were only 2 of us so we couldn't order too much. The dumplings and the lamb skewers were delicious! And it was so cheap!!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
