Arrived without a booking but we were warmly welcomed. Restaurant was busy and also large private party upstairs. Both our meals were fresh, tasty, piping hot. Pricing was excellent for city centre restaurant. Would happily recommend.

I had the un-Chinese dish of sweet and sour beef. The beef was perfect. Steam rice was good. Fortune cookies were different from those in the USA.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
