We love this restaurant and have been back a few times now. We are a group of friends from the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Western Sydney and Inner Sydney City - this is the perfect location for our regular get-togethers. Too good to even think about anywhere else! Authentic food, great service at competitive prices. Menu changes regularly so we never eat the same thing over, only that special dish we love!

Food was average. The eggplant was ok but honestly Chinatown has better for half the price. The dumplings were good. The barramundi was ok but nothing special for its price.

The food was ok but the service was a bit hit and miss. The cocktails were not good at all and the white wine bought to our table was warm which they tried to fix a number of times and got right the third time. Not sure I would go back.

We have not been here for some time but enjoyed dinner prior to going to the State Theatre on Saturday evening.
Lets just say the Duck Pancakes, Dumplings & Sichuan Chicken were all so well presented & very enjoyable.
Combined with the excellent friendly service & extensive wine list this venue never ceases to impress & is so ideal being close to the theatre.

I had lunch here with my friend. Food was yumo but the dishes didn’t all come out together and for a lunch that’s what you want. It’s a good location close to townhall station. If you are looking for somewhere to talk and have a conversation and have overall good food then come here, can be a bit pricey. The dumplings were great. 👍

The food was delicious. The standout dishes were the pepper beef and crispy eggplant.

There were creative desserts and drinks.

Lovely decor and attentive service.

The price charged for tea was a bit steep.

Food was delicious, service was flawless and the ambience was perfect for lunch.

A fire alarm resulted in a 15 minute delay to cooking time, however the staff kept us informed and were very attentive.

We were there fora birthday and lunch and again, the staff made an effort to acknowledge the celebration. Wonderful standards in service and quality.

I booked a table for business lunch. The food's great however some main dishes' been served so slow. We have to check with waiter and ask them to check with the kitchen like 3 times.
