The service was friendly and efficient. The menu caters to most Chinese food tatstes. The meal I ordered was well presented and delicious.

We had our favourite beef noodles and tried the mushroom bun today. It looked exactly like the photo and wasn’t as sweet as I thought it might be. Service was nice too.

A few members of my family work in the City, and Lynn is conveniently located just around the corner from Woolworths, Town Hall, hence a handy meeting place for us. Being inside a social club, one might have to look a little harder to see...More

Not the busiest restaurant, but it was great to have a table to ourselves as a family. We came here for my sister’s birthday as she loves the salty egg yolk crab. This time round, she would have loved it to be a bit more...More

Amazingly bad Tea Smoked Duck and Smoked Pork. Tasteless, Old, Slimy and dripping in grease. The dumplings are edible, but it's sharply down hill from there. At this price point, they should be ashamed.

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
