Efficient service, right from initial greeting. Friendly staff. Especially the main lady- who may be the owner? She ran the show, and ran it very well. Extensive menu. Authentic flavours. We recommend the satay chicken & the thick noodle beef stir fry. Value for money....More

Have been here many many times and keep coming back. Had the BBQ duck and sizzling lamb tonight and both were brilliant. Very relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Sydney.

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
