Interesting place to visit and eat. Food is good. You will have to try several times to get across what you want. They will try to deliver several other things to your table in the meantime and your "Check sheet" gets marked for everything that...More

We had dinner here with friends. The prawn with cashews was yummy and the fried rice was good. The crispy skin chicken was no more than plain old roast chicken. The restaurant was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly.

We had dinner here recently and enjoyed the range of food and offer and particularly those dishes we chose as the food was prepared brilliantly. The service was friendly and the atmosphere typical of a an 'Australian' style chinese restaurant.

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the

Free Parking is not available. Off street parking is very limited because of road work. Car park around the area e.g Haymarket is not cheap but not expensive for Sydney.
