We dropped in to Sanwiye for a late lunch and were delighted with the fried rice omelette and beef pancake with refreshing juices. Just what we needed after hiking all morning. Good service, good value and very generous. A good place for a yummy lunch.

Incredible experience. Highly recommend. The food served (fried dumpling, rice noodle soup and vegetarian stir fry) was impeccably well balanced, healthy portion size and a pleasure to eat. The restaurant itself radiated a warm, authentic vibe with its elegant full wall paintings and cute porcelain decorations, a really unique dining experience. A treasure of Katoomba! Note: If you order tea,... More

We made the fantastic decision to eat here on a long weekend. We were told by a friend to book ahead and that was a great decision, the restaurant is quite small and you don't want to miss out. We had the spicy noodle soup and pan fried dumplings, both were absolutely delicious but the bowls were huge so think... More

Delicious food, really great service - warm and friendly people. Tried dishes I've never had before. My companions enjoyed it as much as me. Loved the decor too - beautiful Korean ceramics as well as other objects.

Small, charming, with good service and a nice menu. The quality is evident in the popularity - it is often packed when similar-sized restaurants/cafes are near-empty. Sushi is now off the menu, unfortunately, but this is probably due to arrival of two new suchi shops in town, one very nearby. Definitely recommended.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food, clean fresh and would be our first option when in Katoomba. Not spicy something for everyone
