I did enjoy our meal. We opted for the entree meals to share, rather than any mains, so we had a few of the dishes and did enjoy them all, but sorry, I can't comment on the mains. The prices were up there though. The...More

We booked for Australia Day and were able to get a table for 2 at short notice. Walked past the entrance at first and almost missed the kind of “secret” door. It’s like entering a secret club. All the staff are very efficient. Very dark...More

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

Frequent Sydney traveler that always finds my way back. Great variety of authentic Chinese. If you like Szechuan peppercorns and heaven facing chili’s - get the fish and the pork. Fried eggplant will change your view on eggplant. Find the hidden neon door and head...More

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
