Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
Banchō is a cocktail and whisky focused small bar in Sydney's Chinatown. We’re excited to bring a quality drinking experience to Chinatown. Our cocktails showcase local market produce and the bounty of Asian ingredients around us. Our bar features a large selection of Japanese and Scotch whisky, including rare and independent bottlings. And our bar snacks are designed to go hand in hand with the top shelf drinking to be had here at Banchō.

Open Table, you should be a way to skip some options from this review as we only went to Banchō for drinks so food is not applicable for me to comment. Therefore it's not accurate to either say that it's 'good' or 'bad'. Nonetheless, we really enjoyed the place and would definitely go back. The only thing I can say that is not so great is the acoustic of the room. Because it's quite a small space with high ceiling, the noise level was pretty high that we almost lost our voices just to converse to each other (next to each other).

The ordering, payment system was bad for new comers. wasted time to install the application. not preferrable way to pay. it only takes the credit card or paypal not cash. The oder by person was not comfortable and waited too long to get the first drink. The way to enjoy the meal or drink was too long to go and uncomfortable.
