I booked in to Kylie Kwong's new restaurant as soon as I heard it had opened. We liked it the minute we walked in on a busy Friday night. Love the huge windows looking out onto Macleay Street. We were immediately shown to our table, offered water, Sommelier summoned and our very impressive waiter ready to take our order. We... More

We dined at the new Billy Kwong in Potts Point and it was exceptional! It was only the second Friday night open and the place was buzzing with an amazing ambiance. The staff were attentive, wine matches were just superb and the menu reflected some of the old favourites and some new specials. The ever humble Kylie Kwong happy to... More

Ate at the new Billy Kwong in Potts Point. The restaurant was packed with diners keen to same Kylie's latest endeavour. There is a lot going for this restaurant, but on this occasion it was a little anti-climatic. Wonderful fresh produce delivering wonderful flavours, though some dishes seemed a bit bland with the same or similar sauce occurring in a... More

However were rang continuously all day till 6.30 pm actually leaving four messages on their machine for a reservation, but not once till this day has anyone bothered to return our calls. Why have...

Ordered 3 dishes, the main was excellent (Fried duck in orange sauce, AUD49) with an average entry but ended with good dessert. Standard vary between the dishes so got to choose carefully.

I genuinely think it's hard to find truly fantastic Asian cuisine, plenty of decent restaurants around, but very few you can rave about to friends and family. Billy Kwong is one to rave about. The food was dripping with delicious, flavorsome sauces and spices - the kind of place you're happy to openly lick your fingers. The wait staff were... More

Brought my friend here for her birthday and had the best time. Staff were so great and provided excellent service. The mixed reviews had me thinking, but Billy Kwong delivered. Yes the seating was backless stools, but we didn't find it squashed or cramped at all - we enjoyed the atmosphere and direct view into the kitchen. If you haven't... More

I've been a fan of Kylie Kwong for some time her book Simple Chinese Cooking is an absolute must for any keen cook. We caught her at the market at Redfern on Saturday morning cooking up a storm and this just heightened my anticipation of a visit to her brother's restaurant in Surry Hills on the Sunday night. I was... More

Birthday meal for my son. Great food, fresh, tasty, hot, different from other food. Staff were very efficient. Went to the early sitting but felt no pressure to leave before the next sitting.

The food was everything that was promised. Delicious, fresh and delightful. The vegetarian San Choi Bau was to die for. I guess you expect restaurants like this one to be busy and so the wait at the door, even though we booked and the slight squashiness was to be expected and not so bad. I didn't like the speed at...
