Been eating at this place when I was an airline crew that brought me to SYD regularly - once again like on all visits to SYD I went again to this restaurant for dinner - the place is rather run down - the service if can be called at all is typically Hong Kong - short and sharp as you... read more

Took me a long time to get here but have heard so many good things over time. I suspect if you are a 'local' or a late night chef / hospitality person you may get different food and service. There wS 4 of us so one of the things we splashed out on was the $78 'Peking duck'. This resulted... More

Simple place with many Chinese staff serving. Roast pork was very disappointing with some of the crispy skin being limp and soggy. What sort of Chinese cook cannot cook rice properly? Cheap quality rice overcooked with far too much water made for a lousy meal. Presentation was non existent with the pork just slapped on top of a gob of... More

Came in with a bunch of friends and immediately got a huge bowl of soup! Super delicious BBQ porks over rice and other comfort Chinese dishes were a hit to our tummy!

Dined here for the 5th time after a late night movie. It wasn't our best BBQ King experience but still good. The service is quick and no fuss. We were sat straight away even thought he eatery was busy. Our food came out quickly, too quickly actually as we sent 1 dish back as it was cold. We would recommend... More

I have been eating here for over 20 years with family & friends. Every single meal has been exceptional with the tastiest duck & pork dishes ever. The service is always fast & the atmosphere fun & loud. Take away is quick & easy too.

No, the decor isn't flash or fancy, and yes it can be noisy, but that's actually part of its appeal. The service is quick, and to the point, mind you, we had our bub with us, and she garnered plenty of attention from the waitstaff, and we were made to feel most welcome with her. The food as per my... More

This place isn't fancy inside but the food is great. The Peking duck pancakes were lovely. All the dishes were cooked perfectly. This place is not far from the Main Street of china town and is a bit more expensive but worth it.

BBQ King has little to recommend it in the way of decor or comfort - but the food! Splendid BBQ and roasted duck, pork, chicken and a good range of accompanying dishes. And a good range of customers from all walks of life, from top chefs after work to big family parties to post-pub group. There is also a takeaway... More
