I was pleasantly surprised to try Taste of Shanghai. Their fried dumplings were super tasty and it was like I had just picked them up from a street vendor. The sticky rice dumplings were also very good. This should be everyone's go-to place.

Busy restaurant tucked away on the lower ground floor at World Square Shopping Centre. Good, tasty, reliable asian food prepared quickly and at reasonable prices. The dumplings are a favourite. If you want a quick, good basic meal visit here.

Very popular and if you eat here you'll know why. But hard to find though. Excellent typical Chinese dishes and local seem to go through enormous amounts of dumplings.

We have been here many times and mostly have enjoyed our meals. Today we brought my little niece who was overwhelmed by the dark interior. We requested a table that was away from the dark walls - in the middle, where there are a series...of long bench type tables. There were 6 of us. We were told we could only occupy one 4 person table. Squishy much? Mind you the restaurant was EMPTY. Whatever ridiculous table seating policy is in place, they should have assessed the situation ie scared child, no other customers. Left and will not come back.More

The fried rice stick cakes with preserved vegetables were good. The vegetarian dumplings had an extra dough in the center where the vegetables should be. The xiao long baos were ok but not great. The pancakes that came with the pork dish were actually Chinese...pancakes and not tortillas.More

Dinner consisted of dumplings, rice, pork dish and egg battered prawns. Terrific food, very good service and a nice selection of beer and wine. Wait staff very good, happy and attentive. I will be looking forward to visiting again when in Sydney.

I think this is a must for those looking for an authentic Chinese meal in Sydney. The majority of those eating around us appeared to be Chinese locals. And they were packed. The food was outstanding, and the service was great.

Visited for dinner, without a booking, and were welcomed by staff to a table at the front. I wasn't a fan of feeling like I was on display when there were tables inside the restaurant that would have been more private, but it was alright....We mainly ordered dumplings which is why we chose this restaurant for dinner and were very satisfied with how quick our order came and how delicious our meals were. We would definitely return!More

I come here all the time now for the most authentic and tasty Chinese food. The menu is from all over china. And the tastes are amazing. You have to start with the xia long Po. And go from there. The drinks are amazing too....Don’t miss this restaurantMore

The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with

frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a

reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
