Tucked away behind another cafe, Lynn was a great find. Excellent food, very prompt service and very reasonable prices. It was a bonus that it was in the Entertainment book too. The best meal of our Sydney stay.

Went there as part of the entertainment book deal. The serving size is good and taste good as well. Reasonably costed at 30 per head so definitely will visit again. Recommended dish is the sweet and sour fish

We had the pork dumplings which were one of the best I have eaten. We had the smoked fish which was full of flavour. The crispy chicken was huge and the shredded pork pancakes were strong and tender but not a favourite. Sauce was over powering. The dumplings were the standout!

Went there for dinner for 2. It was early (yes I like early dinners). You can book so that is convenient. I was seated right in front of the cutlery station so it was so noisy!!! Nothing fancy. They charge you for the Chinese tea. Typical Asian eatery - there is not really any service but I dont go to... More

Last Sunday my family came to Lynn for some Shanghai food. We always love shanghai food and we saw the restaurant online and had good reviews so we thought why not give it a try. We ordered a lot of food such as hot and sour soup, Steamed Pork Buns, King Prawns Noodles In Hot & Spicy Sauce. There was... More

Have returned to Lynns many times and each has always been great food. Xiao long bao would argueably be some of the best in Sydney. Always eat too much as so much is so good. Save room for a dessert like the Panda buns.

we made a return visit here for dinner. service is good but meals we ordered were not. and i disagree with $20 tip being added to your bill automatically. thats just wrong. we wont return because of that and the food.

The email confirmation with an address 119 the actual address is 199 - this problem seems fixed by now. So we were late and had to reschedule to 28th . I told the staff :they should fix... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
