We had a delicious meal at this restaurant during vivid!!! Service was a little lost at times. But the food was incredible. We definitely will come back again. And the prices were so cheap

The Restaurant is situated in Dixon Street not far from Darling Harbor. My wife and I were looking for some lunch and decided to eat there after being attracted but a young lady waving a menu and telling us that it was dry and warm upstairs. At the time the weather had taken a turn for the worse so it... More

The food was okay at best. The service was the real shame. Ordered bottle of water never came. Three dishes ordered for mains 2 came and the 3rd must of been forgotten as it came 30mins later. Asked the waiter 3 times what's happening no response. Better and cheaper options elsewhere

I have not dined here for over a decade but was reminded of just how good the Yum Cha and service are here. The low prices per plate saw me order far too much. The great taste and a good selection of beers made the task of eating it all very pleasant. This is definitely on my revisit list when... More

This was a very disappointing meal. Service was poor. We were told there was a table available for us, so we went upstairs but were then made to wait another 15 minutes (to the great discomfort of the people at the tables we were crowded around while waiting). We were finally seated at a table that was cleared and covered... More

This is a restaurant that has been in Chinatown for many years and how it has survived it is beyond me. We ordered 2 entrees; spring rolls and satay sticks. The spring rolls arrived promptly but were only luke warm, the satay sticks took another 20 mins to arrive and were not what they should have been. They were only... More

If you like Chinese you will love Nine Dragons. My daughter took myself and my grandson for dinner while I was visiting Sydney. The meal was fantastic so much flavour. Best Chinese ever.

Having recently watched John Tarode singing the praises of China Town on UK TVs we made the effort to go there for a meal. We definitely chose the wrong restaurant. The food was cold and we were rushed to leave, although we weren't going to hang around. The waiter even came and shook the cans to see if we had... More

Restaurant was recommended and food was ok however on our table of 4 we ordered a selection of 5 dishes. One dish came out with rice whilst the other 4 came out one at a time over a 40 minute period. Staff very unfriendly and didn't seem to think it was an issue that awe weren't all eating together. Complaints... More
