“Great fresh seafood”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Typical matter of fact service in a very busy Chinese restaurant. Entrance quite unwelcoming, but worth heading up the escalator.
Seafood market prices all quite high, but for freshness (as in brought kicking and screaming to your table in a plastic bag), you can't go past this. Non-seafood items - eg crispy skin chicken - were generous serves. Good wine list.
Worth the walk up Sussex St if you are in the Chinatown end of Sydney. Go to Sky Phoenix if you are at the other end.

“Great food”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I have never been to eastern Asia but I have never tasted Chinese better than here, very clean and professional prices are high but portion sizes are good. Note: If you don't like to see your dinner swimming or crawling here before or while your eating don't go.

“Unsatisfying”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a large, busy restaurant in Chinatown. We felt that the food was only fair. Spring rolls were greasy, and the soup and main courses were ordinary.

Service was hectic, probably because they were so busy. We had to 'catch' the waiter as he rushed past. One main was wrong and had to be sent back. It was a disappointing experience.
