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.

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.
