If you like your Chinese food with some spice in it you can’t go wrong here. Absolutely stunning food, great attentive service and an unusual underground location. Best experiences in a larger group as you can get to try more different dishes

Food was great. Extremely spicy. Wait staff was poor. We had to wait for four dishes to come out of kitchen 45 minutes after other dishes were served. No coordination between kitchen and wait staff.

Absolutely wonderful and quite trading themed modern Chinese restaurant. Service and food quality are first class. A little pricey but to be expected.Just got to try the Kung Pao chicken

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
