Lovely place, fabulous wait staff. The food was beautifully presented but not really that outstanding. Although the blood orange duck was pretty good. Extensive wine list. Bit overpriced for what it was.

Food is wonderful - main problem is choosing from a variety of temptations, had the spanner crab dumplings and pork sung Choi bau , both superb. Only problem was service, left for longer than I needed but ultimately enjoyed a great meal. Expensive but justified by quality.

My partner and I booked dinner at Billy Kwong for a special occasion. Having heard good things, we were really looking forward to it. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told that four dishes from the menu were not available. It's not a huge menu so that narrows things down quite a bit. We decided to try the... More

We were advised to go for the 7 course menu. Excellent advice and every mouthful was delicious. I love the very subtle use of Australian ingredients in Chinese style dishes and everything is top quality. The floor staff were very professional but friendly and helped us choose wine that matched well.

Fantastic food, the quality is supreme @ Billy Kwong,friendly staff with great knowledge of the wine list - that matches the food perfectly - and a funky atmosphere that was buzzy but not overpowering. It was a perfect place for a party of 6. Definitely worth a return visit with the gorgeous one!

Restaurant has moved from our last visit. You can book now which is great. Had the tasting menu. Fantastic flavours with every course. Unpretentious and very friendly with excellent service.. The wine waiter was very helpful as matching wine with this spicy food is difficult . The crab and prawn dumplings were a highlight as was the duck. Such a... More

7 courses where each of the course items did not disappoint and reasonably priced. I have to add our waiter is a Heston look alike who provided great service. The kitchen is in open view and Kylie Kwong is the midst calling the shots. I would happily come again as their tasting menu is seasonal.

Our first night in Sydney and we were thrilled to be able to have dinner at this highly recommended restaurant. The staff were friendly and most helpful to us tourists. We enjoyed the prawn wontons, steamed pork buns and caramelized braised wallabee with black beans and chillies. Finished with the ginger pannacotta with plum sauce and the most delicious chocolate...

Had the scallop dumplings with chilli oil, crispy skin duck, steamed snapper, fired noodles on the daily special menu. The ingredients are fresh, tastes wise is Chinese with... More

I have eaten at this restaurant previously and enjoyed the experience so I returned for a celebratory dinner with my husband. This was a bad decision as the food was well under par. We had the set menu, seven small plates which were beautifully presented. The tasting experience, however, left much to be desired. The principal complaint is that sauces... More
