The restaurant is a simple eat and go type of place. It is not a place for a long conversations. It gets very noisy when it is full. There is always a queue at lunch time and many take away orders.
There are no delicate plating or pretty cutlery.

However the food is amazing for the price. It is robust and rustic. The serving size is large.

The noodles are hand made – you can see them being made and stretch in the window. The dumplings are amazing. There is free tea.

Highly recommended for an honest to goodness food.

This is an authentic Chinese noodle place with mostly Chinese customers. It was crowded on a Thursday night when we visited, with every table full. The affordable prices are clearly part of the appeal.

Everything we ordered was good. The stewed eggplant and potatoes are recommended, as are the dumplings, which were nice and hot inside. We also enjoyed the Ma Po tofu. Basically, everything seems good here.

This rating is honestly just for the wonderful food - because I think if you want great dumplings you won't really mind the simple and basic restaurant at all. Chinatown Noodle Restaurant is one of my FAVOURITE dumpling places in Sydney, and I love the range of their offerings. They are cheap and really delicious. They have classic pork and chive, as well as lamb and onion (another great pan-fried option), chicken, and even braised eggplant. You can also get egg and cabbage for another vegetarian option. Service here is very very quick, with our noodles always only taking a couple of minutes. If the restaurant is very busy, naturally it will take longer, but never longer than 10 minutes. I recommend the pan fried braised eggplant dumplings, and lamb and onion dumplings, while the boiled/steamed or pan fried varieties for all the other combinations are just as delicious. The soupy pork buns are also delicious! The decor itself is very basic, just tables and chairs all set up, and you will often see fresh vegetables in boxes around the place, but I actually like the fact I can see the ingredients :P Trust me and try out the delicious dumplings here :)

Very easy take away for business workers. Quick service and central location. Good variety and inexpensive. We dine in when there’s time and it’s a very causal atmosphere.
