We were sus about dining here as it is in circular quay- nestled amongst many tourist traps , however so glad we did.
We dined here on Australia day - imagine how busy it was , however in addition to being seated only meters from the Fireworks and all the actions overlooking the quay , the food and service was at its best. It really was close to the best Chinese food that we have eaten - and i am including several trips made to china and Hong Kong.
Well done guys !!

A group of us dined here during the week before an Opera House concert.
We had a couple of requests re seating and nothing was a problem.
Because it was slightly windy we sat inside even though outside had all the harbour views.
The food was very fresh (and absolutely delicious) and service was quick and efficient.
We would definitely dine here again plus recommend highly to others.

Sat outside and enjoyed the harbor view. The food is Cantonese and also schzewan with a lot of choices. Service is friendly and efficient. If it is very hot, sit inside.

After strolling around opera house and harbour bridge we tried looking for something to eat as we were already hungry. Found this place near the opera house. Despite the long que we still managed to wait just to satisfy our hunger besides missing asian cuisine
