“Brilliant Spice Laden Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Really great meal. Right up there with Spice Temple in the range of spices. Had a brilliant cold poached chicken in a Wasabi type dressing - sensational.. Tongue was tingling with flavour after the meal. Very good wine list.

“A lot of potential but a lot of room to improve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

The service was slow and a bit dis-organised, very limited wine list. Good atmosphere but lack of details (eg. menu is not clean, cutlery is cheap) .
Ordered most of the spicy dishes. spicy chicken is good, Kong Bao spicy pawn is ok, but the spicy fish and sweet sour pork rib are disappointing.

“Unique Dinning Experience ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Went for family dinner after a day out in the city, loved the Restrurant setting, kids were amazed by the terracotta warriors & gold fish pond, food was amazing so as the service the waiter that looked after my table were so attentive & kind explained the menu to us in detail which helped a lot with dish & dessert selection.
Definitely recommend this place.

“Great Setting - and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I was eager to get to this Restaurant an was not disappointed - very dark setting with beautiful entrance.Quick beer at Bar - Terrible chairs that could not fit my 95kg frame - chairs near bar very uncomfortable - not off to a good start ! service warm without being great - food sensational - Sweet and sour prawns - proper northern chinese recipe so very tasty,Kung Pao chicken was to die for - so we will be heading back there - I really wanted to try the Peking Duck as they have a special dedicated area of the kitchen ( on display ) where they cook and prepare duck.Is this the best Chinese food in Sydney ? maybe not but very close

“Forget 'normal' Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Wow! What a place! So elegant and welcoming. Came here following a recommendation from a mainland Chinese friend and was not disappointed. Service was very attentive and there is plenty of space around the tables so you have some privacy. We found the menu traditional but with a twist. The chili prawns and also the tofu dish were fantastic. As usual when all things come together - service, food, ambience and price I score high. We had a truly great time and enjoyed a tour of the whole place given by the lovely Lauren! Thanks - we will be back!!!
