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.

While we were in Sydney, we came here every day. The food is great and very juicy. Cannot fault it at all.

This place was originally recommended to us as an Uzbekistani restaurant - and we believed it and promoted it as that until only last week when we went with my sister who had traveled through the region confirmed to us that this was food from western China... Embarrassing, but regardless, excellent food and really cheap. Sometimes better than other times,... More

Uighur food is great - fusion of Chinese and Turkic food - and this place is agreat change from all the dodgy Chinese restaurants on Dixon St. Sometimes oily or gristly though. Limited drink offerings but service has been good whenever I've been there. Excellent value and big portions.

This is a very simple comfortable restaurant in terms of style. The walls are adorned with pictures and wall hangings of Uighur musicians and the ceiling is covered by a fake grape vines. In the corner is a TV and they play a DVD featuring music from Uighur. Don't let any of this put you off though if you fuss... More

Get yourself a big group, and book the whole lamb in advance.
