Yummy dumplings, sung chi bao and tofu. Came with a friend who was vegetarian and the restaurant were very accomodating for both of us and enabled us to mix food and have smaller portions. Good wine list too! Will be back!

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
