Surprisingly great food

The decor is below par, the staircase leading to restaurant may scare most off, the menu is tired, old and unprofessional but the food is excellent. Been here twice and had the lamb skewer, veg fried rice and chicken and potato type curry. Servings are huge and great for sharing. Restaurant is said... read more

Being from Central Asia, I absolutely adore Uighur food, as it is so similar and reminds me of my mom's cooking. While not being as nice as the food I grew up with (difficult to beat one's mother food to be fair), this came in as a close second. The soups are alright but my special favorite were the various...

Enjoyed the kebabs and Spicy chicken thoroughly. The place is not an "A" Class restaurant but if you want authentic Muslim Chinese cuisine, it is worth a try. 3/4 people like in our group.

I lived in Turkey for 10 years and when I randomly walked by this place last night for lunch I knew I had to try it. I went today for lunch and told them my friend and I were both long term residents of Turkey and wanted to try this cuisine which is a kind of origin of Turkish food.... More

Loved the flavours of the Northern Chinese cuisine served at this utilitarian restaurant. Really not to be missed if you enjoy beautiful broth, warm spicy flavours and great food cooked and served in a simple way.

By chance we walked into this basic looking restaurant just wanting to have a quick meal before a concert. No character whatsoever about the decor, tentatively we ordered a spicy lamb soup, lamb skewer and beef samosa between my partner and me. All of them were authentic and delicious, especially the lamb skewer, we can't help but add a stir-fried... More

The place has absolutely no charm. It feels like a retirement home cafeteria with wallpaper that I remember seeing last back in 1982. However, the food is so authentic that it will feel like your Uyghur aunt invited you for dinner and she's serving you! Definitely the lamb skewers. The softest meat you'll taste in Sydney. Shorbas (soups) that have... More

This restaurant, located in Chinatown, offers something different than the usual Cantonese fair found in Sydney's Chinatown. We particularly reccommend the dumplings and shallot pancakes. The restaurant is BYO. This, coupled with ordering strategically, makes it a good value option.
