Sydney Institution - Says Juan!

This place has been around for years - first went here when it was on Chandos St - loved it then and still love it now. The "Il Classico" - Chicken in a wok - may not be as numbing as it once was - but still packs a punch! The popper chicken starter - excellent - see photo -... read more

We hadn't visited this restaurant for quite some time and our experience yesterday will probably mean that we'll be back pretty soon. The food was excellent. The service was pretty good, and they accept BYO. Spicy but not so hot that it cannot be enjoyed. Small criticism - no deserts - A couple of ice creams only.

Sancho Bow is the best i have ever had. The pork spare ribs are the house speciality, but if you like it hot, there is none hotter than the Szechuan Chicken in the metal wok, and i think it might have to be in the wok to stop it from melting through a normal bowl, but if like it hot,... More

We've been to SG about five times now. It always delivers high quality food for a moderate price with great service. For such an unassuming outside - it is almost on the Pacific Hwy - inside is a white tablecloths, good service restaurant. My (very strong) favourite is the spicy lobster tail entree, though they also do this in prawn.... More

Nice place in an average location by the highway in St Leonards. Helpful waiters and terrific (hot!) Szechuan food keep us coming back. Worth a look is the Salt and Pepper Lobster tail for $40. Frozen but tasty alternative to a $200+ live lobster from a tank in other Chinese restaurants. BYO, as well is a plus, there is a... More

We visited this restaurant with family for dinner. We were welcome late in night and provide a table towards back of restaurant (not the best table when most other table were still free). We ordered quickly 1 starter, 1 mains and house prawn rice and few soft drinks. Order was served on time and the food was fabulous . Loved... More

this is only a small restaurant but have been going for a few years and always have the best food and service. A pleasure to go to and reasonably priced. A must as the staff are excellent and can help you if you are unsure what to order. Excellent

Tucked away but one of the best. The ribs are the best I have had. Been here for years which also proves they have a large regular clientele who keep returning for the specialties.

We went with a group booking and the staff couldn't have been more generous or accommodating. The seafood starter was a highlight and we enjoyed a leisurely evening of good food and company. Many thanks to the hosts.
