Description: Located in the Bowlers Club at 99 on York, right in the heart of Sydney, China Drum echoes China’s rich history, culture and cuisine. White clothed tables, cosy booths, dark wood finishes and oriental touches set the stage for corporate lunches and elegant dinners, while private dining rooms offer a more intimate atmosphere for functions of up to 20. The menu blends fine dining with traditional home style cooking, and brings contemporary twists to centuries-old recipes. Recommended China Drum specialties include French style braised lobster, and a selection of meats cooked in a cumin crust – a fragrant, less spicy twist on salt and pepper style dishes.

“Got sick!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

At the time, i thoguht it was fine. Your standard Chinese restaurant with standard decor. The food seemed to be decent and tasted fine. I'm neither here nor there with Chinese but there were 7 of us so I just went with the concensus. However, 30 mins after leaving the restaurant, I started to feel a bit queazy and had to end the night early. Ended up praying to the porcelain god back at the hotel... Considering I travelled up to Sydney specificallly to catch up with friends, it was quite disappointing I couldn't continue the night. A very expensive but short lived trip because of the Chinese food.
