This was not a good experience. Not an authentic Chinese eating place. The flavours differed and didn't balance. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Wine list is affordable, with a good... More

Szechuan beef, salt and pepper prawns and scallops with ginger and shallot accompanied by special fried rice. Perfect Christmas Eve fare. All perfectly cooked. Always great standard. Thank you Matthew and... More

Mathew's Peacock Gardens is a 40 yr upmarket Chinese institution in Crow's Nest. I personally love & recommend the Crab Claws, Honey Pepper Pork Ribs, whilst the Crispy Duck is divine. Highly recommended dining experience.

A group of ten of us had our Christmas lunch in a private room at Mathew's Peacock Gardens. Absolutely superb ! Wonderful food with special dietary requirements catered for, brilliant personalised service from Ricky and Debbie, meal and wine presentations were well spaced to allow for conversation, we could hear each other, unlike so many noisy restaurants now. Longevity is... More
