“very good food with first class ingredients”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

went in without reservation at around 9:00 PM , had a bar seat within 5 minutes
Servcie was good, food was great and i ate too much ( two eyes and one mouth)
Its a nice vibe scene-told bartendr to give me 2 glasses of full bodied red Australian wines at half hour intervals-he picked them perfectly-its a nice funky environment
Had a very pleasant experience and will go back

“Great Food BUT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The food is great. I wish I could say the same about the woman who greets people at the entrance. She is rude and dismissive. We will not be back

“Great Dim Sum but service Ho Hum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I must say to start that the reputation for great food at Mr Wong is well deserved. And the location, previously being the upstairs of trendy Tank bar, is certainly original and fun. However, the service was pretty disappointing. Seated for an early 6.30pm dinner, to begin with we seemed to be getting lots of attention, (including arms coming across your face to refill a wine glass you don't want refilled, just as you get to the punch line of your story!) But by mains you couldn't find a waiter anywhere. We waited 15 minutes after mains had been cleared to try and get someone's attention for a dessert menu. In the end I had to get up and go and get someone. Same thing when it came to getting the bill. Finally, it took so long for them to return our credit card that we all got up and waited at the cashier so we didn't get parking fines. The cashier apologised saying how busy they were. Strange that they didn't appear very crowded at this point though. Mr Wong, please get some more staff or organise your current ones better. Don't you know a perfectly good night can get ruined when you're tired and want to go home but can't get coffee, or your bill? Lucky my mum's not up for a doing a runner these days!

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Awsome fit out, and great staff so glad we finally got to eat at Mr Wong's and we were not disappointed. The dumplings were all really good including the xiao long bao. You must try the Sesame Prawn toasts here, they are not your usual fare. Also had the duck spring rolls and crispy royal crab noodle wrap, both were again lovely. We then had the scallops with silken tofu & xo sauce and the crispy eggplant was a surprise highlight. We will definitely return asap.

“Great fit out but disappointing food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We dined last night and overall the evening was very lack lustre.
The ambience was certainly fabulous but service very slow and one of our dishes came out stone cold (no apology offered) .. the duck spring roll special was dry and lacked taste..We waited ages for our first drink and also for the following one...
If it wasn't for the fit out it really would only be average chinese food.
We won't be hurrying back...
