Not the cheapest but one of the best ! The furnishings are showing signs of major use but the food, service & vibe are your reason for visiting ! We picked the $40 banquet, made a change or two with ease and thoroughly enjoyed our meal ! Drinks are a bit pricey but for our once a year treat, no... More

We went with a party of seven and enjoyed their banquet. Service was not brilliant but food made up for it. Plenty of it and delicious.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we're not disappointed. We ordered shrimp toast and shy mai appetizers, combination fried rice, pork w/veggies and apricot duck. Marvelous! The service was very good and the ambience very conducive to dining and conversation. We'd definitely return.

This restaurant seems to be a magnet for lovers of Chinese food in Sydney. I had been here before but forgotten the name. This time I took a Chinese client and was pleased that I had found it again. As usual with Chinese food, we shared the dishes but, for those who like to enjoy a whole dish to themselves,... More

Was looking for some Chinese for dinner, so we ventured into Chinatown, a couple of blocks from the Oaks on Castlereagh (Reviewed), we were accosted by person after person, thrusting menus into our hands, telling us to come inside, they had the best food available. We continued down Chinatown Mall, and found Nine Dragons towards the City end of the... More

Three of us shared a wide variety of yum cha in this restaurant, which has both outdoor seating and a spacious indoor area upstairs, decked out in very much the style you'd expect. We had no complaints about any of the food, and the prices were reasonable. Service, depending on the waiter in question, was variable however.

While I have found many restaurants in Sydney to be "gluten free friendly" this was a nice mix of vegetarian and gluten free with excellent food.definately recommended

We just walked there from Holiday Inn Darling Habour. Had our 1st dinner in Sydney, food is excellence and service is good. Worth checking out for Chinese cuisine.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
