The $30 lunch banquet was excellent. There were three of us. We needed to be fed quickly. It was delicious and really full of flavour. Two dumplings and a pork bun. Then fried tofu, fish, greens, noodles, chicken wings. Good service.

Nearby
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
