Large round tables excellent for large groups. Wide range of food choices that circulate quickly around the room. Dim sums are more vegetable than meat. Sauces full flavoured. Reasonable prices.

Dim sums are heavenly especially the chicken spring roll, prawn dumpling, glutinous rice wrapped in a lotus leaf, etc. All freshly made and serving portion is nice. As expected, a bit crowded and noisy especially we went in a Sunday afternoon. But would definitely go...More

A very disappointing visit. Each time I visit Sydney and I always go here at least once each time. Unfortunately over recent visits, the service (and food) has gone downhill. Today was no exception and I will probably never come back here again during future...More

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the

Free Parking is not available. Off street parking is very limited because of road work. Car park around the area e.g Haymarket is not cheap but not expensive for Sydney.
