The environment is very cozy and the staff is polite and efficient. We weren't sure of what we would like to eat so the waitress was very helpful making sure we would like each dish. In the end we loved everything we ate and we would come back there for sure.

Sat at the bar almost dead opposite Kylie and watched the chefs do their thing and her do her thing while sampling the fabulous degustation menu. I have to say that I would now not want to sit at a table. Great tasting dishes. The only slight disappointment was the pork buns - They were light and fluffy but just... More

I'm a dumpling freak so I was really looking forward to coming here especially with all their great reviews. Ordered dumplings and pork buns to start - dumplings were nice but the pork buns were quite tasteless and dry. We had duck pancakes and the crispy chicken special and unfortunately they just weren't that fantastic. Duck was dry and the... More

Love Kylie and this restaurant is great but it is difficult to judge how much to order when ordering and the staff are useless. The meals vary dramatically in size so its not as simple as 4 mains and a couple of entrees to share for 4 people. We ordered too much last time and I didnt enjoy the feeling... More

While the exterior and interior are very unassuming, the food is fantastic. Every bite was a new sensation of flavors, delicious. Great service too.

Sunday lunch, there's no need to go past the suggestions of the day, simple locally sourced ingredients. You can watch Kylie, working away in the open kitchen producing some powerful burst of flavour. A definite regular eating establishment on return visits

Went to billy kwongs for a work celebration dinner. We were a large group. The food was spectacular, flavours were insane. The staff were super attentive from the sommelier to the waitresses ensuring that our experience was one to remember. To see Kylie Kwong running the kitchen with such precision was a super treat. I must visit for fine food... More

Attended with my "date" and a couple of his friends. had resisted Billy Kwongs when on Crown Street as stools were non- ducive to a lingering dinner. the night at Potts Point was a disappointment. Friday night, mid summer, packed, air conditioning non existent and table for four should really have been for two with dishes etc. The food was... More

Bill Kwongs has moved to Potts Point, and a classy restaurant with an open kitchen showing all the staff working hard, greets you as you walk through. It is a great focal point. The food was very good, and on occasions excellent. The merging of native ingredients with Chinese fusion food can be a great success – the Crispy Saltbush... More

This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
