Spice Temple

Drinks:
Lemongrass, chrysanthemum tea, rosewater
(...to calm down the heat...)
Virgin ox, tomato, capsicum, spice mix, lemon
(...to fire up the heat...)

Food:
Tea-smoked duck with mandarin pancakes
(...the taste was good but duck was a bit dry and pancakes were just a touch over-reheated and slightly sticky...)
Steamed blue-eye trevalla fillet Hunan-style, salted red chilli, pickled green chilli
(...WOW, a knock-out super-impressive masterpiece!...)
House-style fried rice with bacon, peas and salted chillies
(...delicious!...)
Guangxi style crisp roasted pork belly, coriander, peanuts, red onion, sesame seeds
(...very tasty flavours but the crackling was more crunchy and hard than crunchy and crispy...)
Kung Pao chicken, Sichuan peppercorns, heaven facing chillies, cashews
(...another faultlessly fragrant and tantalizingly tasty creation...)

Dessert:
Chocolate and caramelized peanut parfait
(...yummy...)

Petit four:
Orange and chocolate crumble
(...light, fragrant and refreshing - to put a spring back in your step for the rest of the night...)

Frequent Sydney traveler that always finds my way back. Great variety of authentic Chinese. If you like Szechuan peppercorns and heaven facing chili’s - get the fish and the pork. Fried eggplant will change your view on eggplant. Find the hidden neon door and head downstairs.

Food is fantastic. We ate here twice on our recent trip to Sydney - the fish with heaven facing chilis is crazy good. In fact, every dish we had was mouth-watering delicious! From the pickled cucumbers to the eggplant starter to every main dish including the vegetables - one of the best Chinese meals I have ever had!

Food was great. Extremely spicy. Wait staff was poor. We had to wait for four dishes to come out of kitchen 45 minutes after other dishes were served. No coordination between kitchen and wait staff.
