Been to Spice Temple many times. Food is exceptional - service is great. Duck pancakes and drunken chicken were standouts. Ensure you get the pickles to counter the spice!!

We do a bit of eating around the world and are thoroughly spoiled in that department. When my daughter invited me out for lunch I did not hesitate to accept. The place was packed with Christmas parties all round, however the staff were courteous and...More

The food is excellent in this restaurant. I've never had bad service, but would go back for the food even if the service was terrible! Amazing quality in everything served, and it certainly is a temple to spice of all kinds - an Asian foundation...More

Four of us went last week. Dark and gloomy place; dont take your mum, the entry stairs are steep and small. When you get seated, at a too small table, you can wait 30 minutes before anyone sees you. Maybe we were invisible in the...More

Our hotel recommended Spice Temple when we were unable to find room at Mr. Wong’s. It supposedly serves similar progressive Chinese food, but based on all the good things I had heard about the place we couldn’t go, I would be surprised if the experience...More

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
