We had "beef sate" - The meat was good, unfortunately there was very few gravy so we had to eat our boiled rice more or less dry. This might be genuine chinese style but we did not like it. But what really disappointed us was the quantity of onions on the plate. Only 5 green beens but 6 entire (!)... More

10 of us ate here early Saturday evening, all couples and sober and well-behaved. The overall venue was nice and authentic in the heart of exciting Chinatown, but the service was unfortunately fairly average with hardly any smiles or interaction. Very basic starters (bland spring rolls and chicken satay whose sauce tasted more like curry sauce than peanut satay -... More

My wife and I took our parents and children there while visiting Sydney for Christmas. We liked the look of the place so chose here over the other restaurants all trying to get our business. We are glad we did. The staff were very friendly, happy to assist and made sure we chose wisely. Rather than trying the banquet, we... More

I haven't been to this restaurant in many years as now living in QLD. I went here the other night with my wife and the food was still extremely good. The service is spot on although the entrees and mains came out all together which left little space on the table and we did feel a bit rushed, however that... More

We had prawn dumplings, spinach dumplings, combination steamed dumplings, spring rolls with sweet n sour sauce, some fried rolled up noodles with a peanut type sauce, Singapore noodles, sticky rice and the BBQd duck. It was all very good. It was about $25... More

Encouraged to dine by an enthusiastic employee whose mission is to achieve this feat, we took a street side table. We were immediately given menus and our wine order was taken a moment later. The waiter anticipated our readiness to order and it was done. We sipped our wines and, perfectly timed, our stuffed crab claw first dish was served.... More

Their loss became our gain as we all eight agreed it was our new venue for the annual get together from now on ! Have eaten at scores of Chinese around the traps and this is up there with... More

Our annual visit to Sydney always entails a visit to our favourite Chinese Restaurant. Banquet, or just a table for 2, it doesn't matter. The food is exceptional, plenty of it, delicious and the staff are so friendly. Prices are most affordable and the portions most generous. Well done, keep it up, Nine Dragons! We brought a group this week... More
