Lan Yuan – Top Ryde

The best way I could describe Lan Yuan is like Chef’s Gallery (priced and modernised interior as such) but centred on traditional Cantonese Cuisine instead. The atmosphere is lovely – you’re basically walking into and dining in a bamboo forest with nice sturdy wooden furniture and classy matching oriental cutlery. The dishes are presented in a sophisticated and elegant manner, however they are dishes that … Continue reading Lan Yuan – Top Ryde

Holy Duck! – Haymarket, Sydney

After unsuccessfully finding a table at Spice Alley, we ended up on the doorstep of neighbour restaurant Holy Duck, a newly opened restaurant and got ushered in by the friendly and persistent staff at the door. The concept looked really promising, with the celebration around duck as a meat in modern cuisines. There also isn’t an asian restaurant that focuses specially on specialising in duck … Continue reading Holy Duck! – Haymarket, Sydney

Fortune Palace – Carlingford

Review of dinner at Fortune Palace in Carlingford Village. This canto restaurant would beΒ considered by some to be an institution for yum cha and great family gatherings. It gets really busy on Friday to Sunday nights and you’ll often see 3 generations of a family around a big round table. The most popular dinner orders here will include seafood – crab, lobster, fish – for … Continue reading Fortune Palace – Carlingford

Old Town Hong Kong – Haymarket

I really enjoy the look of Old Town HK in Chinatown. It’s a great place to get all your dim sim / congee and classic hong kong dishes in a clean, roomy and authentic environment, without the rush of trolleys or shouting workers. Table service was fast and efficient. I ordered a preserved egg and pork congee because I recently hadΒ a wisdom tooth removed and … Continue reading Old Town Hong Kong – Haymarket

Fuhong BBQ Restaurant – Burwood

Fuhong in Burwood is one of my favourite restaurants to eat Chinese BBQ meats and rice, and I’ll tell you 5 reasons why 1. Free soup and tea – As soon as you sit down, a bowl of steaming pork bone, carrot and pear soup is brought over for the table and no matter how dodgy it looks, I also take comfort in thatΒ homely taste … Continue reading Fuhong BBQ Restaurant – Burwood

Chef’s Gallery – Macquarie Centre

Came here for a birthday lunch and was pleasantly surprise with all the food. Despite the price being a little bit $$, I thought the quality and taste of each dish was great and walked away feeling like my money was well spent. I had a reservation for 12pm and even though the restaurant was quite empty at that time, it filled up very quickly … Continue reading Chef’s Gallery – Macquarie Centre

Taste of Shanghai – Eastwood

The Top Line: My favourite place (along with Shanghai Nights in Ashfield) for dumplings and classic Shanghainese dishesΒ with a modern twist. The quality of the food here is consistent and everything on the menu makes my mouth water. The Review: This restaurant in Eastwood is constantly buzzing with people and you’d likely find yourself in a line if you arrive during peak eating period on … Continue reading Taste of Shanghai – Eastwood
