I went here for dinner as I was walking through Chinatown Sydney and the menu looked good. The restaurant looked clean and the staff were friendly. Food is okay for the price but nothing amazing.

I had lunch and dinner at the nine dragons restaurant, the service was fantastic. It is situated right in the middle of China Town. If you like seafood you must try the king prawns, with fresh vegies, really great value for money.

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
