We took the family for dinner at Billy Kwong’s as we had not been there before. The food is modern Australian Chinese and incredibly fresh with a real focus on locally grown and Australian ingredients. The duck pancakes were amazing, seafoood dishes wonderful and the use of Australian natives in salads and other dishes was quite amazing. Nothing was too spicy and kids loved it as well. Service was exceptional and pretty good value. We went early and restaurant quickly filled up and was buzzing. Highly recommend this.

We went with high expectations. We were delighted with the appearance and the demeanor of the staff. We were then disappointed by the small menu, the impossible to read specials menu, and the attentiveness of the staff. And then we were blown away by the food, particularly the house made chili sauce and the fried egg. We spent the time waiting for our food in a state of irritation and then we gobbled up the food and would return in a second if we return to Sydney.

The Stirfried pippies were really good, would have them again. Service was good. Will be back, but will try something different.

If you’re risk averse, budget conscious, traveling with children, or pressed for time, Billy Kwong’s may not be the best choice for dinner. If, however, you’re looking for an extraordinarily unique culinary experience and willing to throw a bit of caution to the wind, then you’re in for a real treat. Billy Kwong was hands-down the best meal we had in Sydney. Service was friendly and excellent (the host went above and beyond to accommodate us when our original reservation at the bar was not immediately available). Food recommendations were fantastic and everything served was perfection - the duck, lettuce wraps, snapper, stir fried asparagus, jasmine rice, etc etc. This is a meal we won’t soon forget.

We expected so much better. Ugh. So mad. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dishes. Well then my server should’ve warned us. Where do I begin.
1. The “specials” menu tries to be cool with this ridiculous cursive writing that you can’t even read.
2. How can hokkien noodles cost $28 and SUCK? Same sauce so it seemed and the SAME veggies as our previous dish of Aussie bush veggies (which cost just $27) Ugh, sounds exotic but of course it’s just sprouts really. Bad bad. And they expect this watery veggie concoction to be wrapped in cheap iceberg which leaks out all the juice onto your hands, then wrist, then just everywhere. I swear our server knew this was bad and was elusive throughout the meal then when he showed up again offered extra napkins.
3. The best was the egglplant. That was the cheapest and the most worthwhile hence the 2stars. And the rice was decent.
4. AND WHO STILL CHARGES EXTRA TO USE A FREAKING CREDIT CARD??? When we asked why you couldn’t even answer!!!!! Are you kidding me? Go to hell. Seriously. I’m still bitter about this $150 meal. Really bitter. Gimme my money back.
