In Sydney for business, and decided a group of us, should try this recently opened homage to your local suburban Chinese diner by Neil Perry. Our booking started at a table for 4, then to 8, then back to 6, and then yet again back to 8, and at each call the reception was obliging, friendly and helpful. We all arrived on a Tuesday evening at 6pm and were seated in this beautifully spacious room to the rear on a long table to the right looking towards the huge colourful Chinese artworks hanging on the wall opposite. The service from the get go was perfectly executed, professional, well timed, helpful and friendly, especially seeing there were 8 of us bidding to get our favourite dishes selected in the ordering process.
Entrees, if I can remember them all were:
Pork and Prawn Sui Mai
Pork xiao bao with red vinegar and ginger
Pork pot sticker with black vinegar
Prawn spring rolls with sweet & sour sauce
Prawn toast with ham
Peking duck pancakes
All we're very good, with the pork xiao and the prawn toast being exclaimed excellent as was the pork pot stickers with black vinegar. The Peking Duck was also a standout.
For mains we had:
Honey King Prawns
A grouper fish dish
Slow cooked ribs
Dong Po Pork
And Special Fried Rice
All these dishes were delicious with some of us raving over certain dishes like the fish, pork and ribs.
There were also a couple of desserts that came out as well.
And we drank from a selection of very nice Rieslings.
I don't think this restaurant is expensive, considering its location and the deft delicate hand in which the food is cooked and presented, and the quality of the produce. This is not your suburban shopping strip local Chinese.
A VERY definite DO NOT MISS going here, it's well worth it.
A footnote, it was packed on the Tuesday night we were there.
