The banquet/set menu is definitely the way to go. A great mixture of seafood, red meat and white meat included and we could swap out things we weren't keen on or were allergic. Service was great. Food was yummy and the timing between dishes was good. Wine list suited out taste and all at a very affordable price in a... More

Dined here last night finally realising my desire to experience this much talked about restaurant. Was not disappointed - thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We selected five dishes and rice and shared between five of us. Delicious, loved the pork and we were all full so no room for dessert! Next time!! The ambience was great and the staff and service...

Got a set menu with I think 7 dishes off the top of my head. The waiter was very attentive and helpful, carefully explaining the dishes and his recommendations on wines to match. The penang curry and pork belly are absolutely to die for.

Romantic dinner booked the evening before. Lovely wine menu and certainly the dinner was glorious. GF not a problem and swapped out one of the options on the banquet to cater for this. Great service, expect to take your time and just enjoy the experience

We had been on about going here for almost 2 years and when we finally did we were not disappointed. The menu has a lovely selection of modern Asian foods (some you might say westernised) which are beautifully prepared and presented. It is a lovely setting too, nice for a romantic dinner but as the dishes are share size it... More

Sydney has some great restaurants but this is one of our favourites. Great atmosphere, great food (especially the pork) and very friendly service. Not cheap eats but this is an example of why we go out to eat.

Amazing food. China Doll Riesling was also very well priced. As mentioned the location is amazing in Woolloomoloo Wharf and the service was perfect.

Staff were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Food was great. Recommend fried rice, beef fillet, chicken and eggplant salad and San Chou Bou. They coped with our multiple food allergies effortlessly.
