I love seafood cooked in Chinese style. Kinda pricey, but the food really taste great. You just have to consider to order only what you can eat since their serving is a little bit big for 1 person, good for sharing

The best Chinese seafood restaurant I've ever been to and I make sure I go at least twice every time I visit Sydney. Bring a few friends so that you can sample King Crab cooked two ways, indulge in the lobster with ginger and spring onions, the luxury of fresh abalone and steamed clams and prawns. It's all cooked from... More

I went to this restaurant on 8 Dec 2014 with my wife and 2 kids. We had to wait nearly an hour before our food came. Other tables received food before us, even though they came after us. We queried our order many times, but the waitress kept on saying, 'It's coming.' The food was good. Shame about the service.

We headed out for a late night Friday dinner and the place was pretty busy, although we were seated straight away. The service here was fairly good and the food came reasonably quick. There was a specials menu on the table and when we tried to order something from this menu, we were dismissively told "it's over". I asked if... More

This is a stalwart for pre-movie and show diners but allow plenty of time. We arrived before 8 at peak time and it quickly emptied out but then service collapsed. At least 15-20 minutes before each dish brought out and waiters had to be chased. One of them continually stopping to pick food from a trolley then wander around chewing... More

The good was really good, and the service was above average, it was noisy, bright, and just didn't seem as clean. It felt like the carpet needed a clean. It felt like the walls and ceilings could do with a wash. The lights needed to be turned of 'lighthouse brightness'. It was good, and I would happily go back if... More

This restaurant serves the best chinese food I have ever eaten. I've been there several times and the food as always been top notch. The service however is not always the greatest. Even when you book, you often have to cue outside but that is largely overcompensated by the greatnest of the food.

We went 2 nights in a row. Its good, authentic Cantonese cuisine, but fresh seafood is expensive compared to other lesser known places. Make sure you have a look at their wine racks at the back of the restaurant - lots of bottles signed by well known VIPs! Plus they have one of the best and most expensive wine lists... More
