I loved everything about Billy Kwong. The place was buzzing, and the food was simply some of the best I have ever had. We had the twice roasted duck with organic plums and it was simply one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted. The service was excellent. Yes, it's not cheap, what celebrity chef restaurant is?, but it was worth every cent.

At the recommendation of our hotel front desk, we took a cab to Billy Kwong. We had no clue what to expect and we certainly didn't know that the restaurant was owned by the Australian celebrity chef Kylie Kwong. Because this is not your average Chinese joint, you really need to be willing to try new things. We went for a beef dish that was really tasty with a side of green beans. We were among the first people in line, but by the time we left they were lining up down the street. Well worth the wait.

To enjoy this BYO and licensed restaurant one needs to get here early, as no reservations are taken. It's usual to see people lining up before it even opens.

The reason its so popular is because the food is so yummy and the Chinese menu exciting. The daily specials like snapper with ginger and shallots or crispy duck are favourites among the patrons. Everything regarding the food is organic and Billy Kwong philosophy reflects through its food. Chefs : are Matthew Lindsay and Kylie Kwong. You can purchase Kylie Kwong signed cookbook at the restaurant . www.kyliekwong.org

Our 2 entrée, 2 mains were excellent. We shared our steamed Prawn Wontons with Organic Brown Rice Vinegar Dressing and Sung Choi Bao of Pork, Ginger & Mushrooms and both were delicious. Our mains consisted of the daily special snapper and the crispy duck which were awesome. As I mentioned before everything is organic even the steamed organic Jasmine Rice . Hubby even had an organic beer much to his disliking.

If you love Chinese food with a twist then you will adore Billy Kwong's.

great food, obviously a labour of love for such a tiny place.
sure it's tight squeeze and expensive- but if you are rich and skinny, you'll fit right in. if you're not, plenty of other places you'll probably like more.
