Chinese Gardens, never been before. Beautiful, tranquil, fun for the kids. But the tea house does not live up to any of that. The setting is nice. But there's no gluten free food, nothing suitable for the kids and unless men eat quiche, nothing for them either.

A very relaxing evening, great place. I would like to come back and sample more. Worth it if you don't have any ideas to try new places.

We had enjoyed a very relaxing and stimulating stroll through the Chinese Gardens and were delighted to come across the Tea house on our way out. We ordered Dim Sim, Gow Gees and Pork buns with drinks and the total bill was $23.50. Now that is good value. We sat overlooking the lake and watching the enormous Coy Carp and... More

It was very tranquil walking around the gardens and my daughter loved dressing up as a Chinese princess for an extra $10. We were looking forward to a pot of green tea and soaking up the pond and fish but the the tea house said that they were only selling cold drinks because there was a function on that night!... More

I have been to these gardens quite often, they are stunning. This time at the teahouse we had the smoked salmon sandwiches and a pot of green tea. You feel like staying there by the waterfall but alas more adventures await.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
