Description: Chefs Gallery is a Sydney Chinese dining experience like no other. Its exceptional menu presents masterpieces from all corners of China in a sumptuous kaleidoscopic explosion of fresh and exciting flavours, textures and aromas. At Chefs Gallery we embrace the Chinese cultural heritage of sharing meals - where dining is casual in its structure with no designated entrees or main courses. Instead, our Chapas (Chinese style tapas) offers an extensive range of creative dishes with a modern twist that are specially prepared in delicious small portions for sampling and sharing with family and friends. Among these are some traditional and familiar dishes that have also been given the Chefs Gallery Chapas treatment. The signature Chefs Gallery fresh, handmade noodles take centre stage behind the glass-walled kitchen. Patrons can watch the culinary theatre as balls of special noodle dough are transformed to form the finished twists of delicate noodles, in a blur of dexterous hand movements by the master noodle chef. From traditional noodles to new flavours like spinach and squid ink, these silken strands are all freshly prepared, being pulled, split and folded in minutes and cooked specifically to your order.

Went here for lunch. Arrived just after opening which was great because it filled up really quickly. Large selection of vegetarian and meat dishes, we had 4 sharing plates soup/ dumplings/pot stickers and salt & pepper calamari. Terrific flavours, attentive wait staff and quick service.

Went here because of invitation from oz friends while we are visiting Sydney. Very crowded, reservation is a must. I find the foods surprisingly pretty good. It’s not a place to chit chat.

Not cheap but neither ridiculously expensive, good/generous portion size. Variety of noodle soup dishes, rice dishes, dumplings & buns, desserts, and more. My favourite is probably their noodle dishes as the noodles are handmade, and soup absolutely authentic and delicious (however they do seem to give really less soup in proportion to noodles) like no other I've tasted at a restaurant. My parents who are both Chinese, heavily commend the taste of their dishes as well, remarking of how good the flavour is.

There is usually a queue during peak times, but there is a hostess usually always there tending to any questions or concerns, and when you dine you never feel pressured or rushed to finish (like some other Asian restaurants who make you hurry, eat and leave so more customers can sit down and eat).

Decor is quite nice and simple, with a monotoned theme adding to the modern feel of the restaurant, with some traditional Chinese pieces of art.

Sometimes I also eat here alone after work, in which there is no waiting time as there is usually a single seat available in the seats in front of the kitchen (separated by glass, so you can watch how they make some of the food).

Staff were attentive to the point they would refill your glass of water frequently without you asking, and very friendly, happy to help wherever needed (once my chicken was overcooked and very dry in my double cooked chicken noodle soup dish, and the waitress I told quickly went to get her supervisor, who dealt with the situation very professionally and offered to replace it with another one)

I could recommend this place as a place to eat casually, a simple birthday dinner, corporate lunch break, family/friendly dinner, romantic date night.

I have also tried the Chef's Gallery in Parramatta, right outside Westfields (under Event Cinemas next to the escalators) which had the same quality taste, service and restaurant atmosphere and decor! Not sure if they still have it but last year if you dined between 8pm and close time they had a decent handful of dishes that were about $10-$12 each, included with a free drink, which was absolutely great value for money (perfect for me and my friends after training with our sports team)

Very well done guys, still one of my favourite go-to's whenever I'm craving Chinese cuisine!
