Had a lunch on a wet Sydney day. Good heaters to keep you warm and staff offered knee rugs to those who wanted so dont let weather put you off. Food was very nice and setting is 5 stars...worth a visit of you have time
Lovely place to sit and relax with Chinese tea! This is inside the Chinese gardens in Darling Harbour and is well worth visiting. Hire a costume and then sit in for a tea to take you on your imaginative visit to China.
venue for a group lunch .... Good banquet selection .....loved the Okra and mushroom dumplings .... Very good service ...very relaxed and friendly staff .... I would recommend "lotus" midst the beautiful gardens ....recommend for any celebrations.
Every time we come to Sydney we visit the Chinese Gardens at Darling Harbour - it is a delightful, quiet, soothing, calm place. You would not think that you were in the middle of a bustling city ! We had of course noticed the Teahouse...More
The garden itself is great. No question. Very relaxing, clean, beautiful plants and birds. Brilliant.
The disappointing part is the new restaurant. Previously, the garden had a cafe. The cafe was a informal eatery where you can get a simple snack or drink. You expect...More
My favourite hidden gem in Sydney has now opened up in the evening and it doesn’t disappoint. 6 of us ate delicious Szechuan food with friendly attentive staff and great service with a backdrop of beautiful and peaceful chinese gardens and water features. Duck pancakes...More
We visited the gardens and after had a very refreshing cuppa and scones. Great place to wander through the gardens and finsh off with just a sit and enjoy the surrondings as well as the Tea and food. by layout of yourteahouse.
Reading the other reviews makes this one seem redundant as we all seem to have had the same enjoyment and experience.
We didn’t expect to have enjoyed this beautiful place as much as we did. Perhaps it’s the vibe, but I can guarantee you that...More
Cup of tea (quite a few types to choose from) some yummy dumplings and a side salad, sitting beside the waterfall splashing over the rock wall, one of the most relaxing things ever, and the staff were so friendly and pleasant, AND all this in...More
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's. Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world.
The Australian National Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
Hi Val, I posted a copy of the latest menu on my review. I know it is a long time after you asked your question, but it will give other viewers a good indication of the meals available. It mentions Chinese steamed dumplings... More
Hi Val, I posted a copy of the latest menu on my review. I know it is a long time after you asked your question, but it will give other viewers a good indication of the meals available. It mentions Chinese steamed dumplings and buns; Quiche and salad; Gluten Free Tart and salad; Salad of the day; 2 types of Gourmet Rolls and Wrap of the day. I hope that helps.
