Amazingly quick service with tasty food. Always a good choice for a quick feed in Chinatown. Chicken sweetcorn soup was a winner on a cold night!

If you are on a diet then you won't like this place. The attraction of this place is that it is opened until 2am in the morning. Roast pork and rice is not bad.

We came specifically for the duck and, while it was good duck, the price was 50% more than we pay at our local. The décor is still the same as... More

Then, my family an I decided to give this one a try. Ordered some roast pork, duck and some fried rice. The fried rice was... More

We have been coming here on and off for 16 years. It was good in the past when we had suckling pig etc. I went last night with my two teenagers, we had soup as entree and three mains. Two of the dishes were very oily. The soups were ok, large size for entree. The bill came to $120. $32... More

Yes, we go here everytime we go to Sydney even when we stay up near The Rocks, it's worth the 30 minute walk down to China Town. Yes there is nothing fancy about the restaurant itself or its staff, from outside and inside the decorations look rather shabby and the staff don't come off as very friendly but the service... More

The queue for Mamak's was far too long so we headed to the acclaimed BBQ King. The whole roast duck and crispy skin pork were very good. We also had tofu and vegetables : excellent.
