Can't go past the duck and the pork. Efficient fast and friendly service. Simple Chinese cuisine done brilliantly. A must for lovers of good food.

I went to this restaurant many many times over 20 years. I had stir fried fish that was very nice but vegetables with dry scallop sauce not nice and the price is very expensive too around $30 !!!!!

I adore this place and been coming here for the past ten years. Lunch, dinner, late night supper, it doesn't matter what time it is, this place always delivers. Service can sometimes be abrupt and aloof but the food is the star here. There is plenty of live seafood to choose from. Parrot fish or barramundi steamed with ginger, soy... More

This chinese restraunt is one of the best I have found in sydney. Huge selection of live seafood, great service, fast and efficient. You can't go past this place, their salt and pepper lobster it is the best, the steamed prawns are to die for and the xo pippies are just divine. If your a wine buff the wine list... More

Don't expect great decor - it is a busy chinese restaurant where the focus is on serving great food. Noisy, bustling, and exactly what you expect from a restaurant of this nature. The food was fresh, tasty and servings large.

One of popular seafood restaurant in Sydney Chinatown. We have been to place almost 10 years ago & recently we decided to try again . We can say the quality remained the same & the mediocre service has not changed. The food is fresh not to mention the seafood is straight from the tanks & well cooked. Pricing is above... More

Just about as authentic as you can get for chinese cuisine in Sydney - down to them bringing out the seafood for you to "inspect". I would highly recommend trying the pigeon!

We went here for dinner. When we came in, the receptionist/greeter told us to come in. But the table is too small. When we asked for bigger table to the captain, the receptionist is arguing with the captain with a loud voice in cantonese. They did not realize that I understood what they were saying because when we came in... More

Recommended by our Hotel, we were delighted with the excellent seafood and other menu choices served in this busy and popular large scale restaurant. Recommended for an authentic and tasty chinatown dining experience offering szechuan and other cuisines, but most famous for seafood selected live. Although busy, the service was not delayed, and the food was delivered hot. Will definitely... More
