We have eaten at Spice Temple many times since it opened. The food quality and variety has always been good, sometimes excellent, but the service has been occasionally mixed. Last night we dined there again, and the experience was perfect: attentive and friendly service without...More

Even for a Chinese, Spice Temple would be a qualified Szechuan restaurant, of coz the spiciness is toned down a bit to cater to local people. Recommend to try the numbing pork which would be a interesting experience for people who have never had ‘Sichuan...More

Dinner with a group of friends on Saturday night for birthday celebrations. Always good for their cocktails but even after quite a few years now, the food does not disappoint. Excellent appetisers, lamb pancakes, pork/fennel dumplings, prawn wontons. Complimentary pickled cabbage to keep the heat...More

This is a place that will surprise you. The front entrance is hidden and the stairs down give no hint of the gastronomy joys awaiting you. The staff are elegant and attentive, the mood and ambience something like a modern day speakeasy with low lighting....More

Difficult to find the front door. Too dark inside. Other customers are too close. Staff weren't as good as those at the original Rockpool at The Rocks. We had the $99 banquet and note that there is a duck dish for entree and another duck...More

Yes a combination of sexy and spicey Sexy goes definitely to the decor of this restaurant - quite dark with lighting that focuses on the food. Carpeted so the noise is dampened to a point where you can have a conversation with your companions easily....More

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a seat on a Saturday night without booking recently due to a cancellation. Although the food was nice there were a few annoyances. First being, a private group being seated in the side private dining areas...More

This is a brilliant restaurant downstairs pretty much underneath the building that houses Rockpool Bar & Grill. Looks like it was the original vaults for the old insurance building. The menu it quite extensive, with plenty of veg options as well, and is well catered...More

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
