Stuck in the eighties but the food is amazing! No need to book, very popular with the Chinese, always a good sign.

This restaurant is an absolute gem. Hidden away down a tired stairwell. The food is amazing and the service is great. Well worth the effort to find it.

What strikes you first is the pond which large gold fish and the red carpeted arched bridge which takes you to the tables inside the restaurant. The service was friendly and the food was lovely. I'd certainly recommend this restaurant and I would go back...More

Avoid in a word. Food is terrible, possibly the worst Chinese i've had. the fact it's in a basement with no natural light started the alarm bells. Service was friendly, but the food almost inedible, soggy or fried beyond recognition.

Arrived here tired & jetlagged after a long flight & what a pleasant surprise, food superb, so fresh with no msg! Well worth a visit..

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
