We wanted to eat outside at Circle Quy. At the first restaurant we sat at the service was extremely slow and uncaring, so we only had a beer there and left. And although the East was our second choice, it was wonderful. The waitstaff was attentive throughout the dinner. The presentation of each dish ordered with warming covers allowed us to take our time. It was the best Chinese food we have had in years and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the habour views.

I’ve been a regular patron for 15 years.
The staff are efficient and friendly.
Food is excellent.
Location best in Sydney overlooking Sydney Harbour.
Chinese New Year of the Dog 2018 is approaching.
The Lion Dancers are a regular annual event.
Try the duck pancakes and the XO chilli beef or the wasabi beef.

As this restaurant right at the harbour, so it was an easy choice for a dinner after a long day at Manly. The service is good and fast as always in a Chinese reastaurant but I think here it was a bit faster... The food is really very good, fresh and tasty. The prices are high but what else can you expect when you have dinner in the most wonderful location on Earth.

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 !!
