Merivale superstar chef Dan Hong and team’s take on Asian fusion, in a funky setting. Put your name down for a table and head up the 3 flights of stairs to their bar while you wait. Ultra glam setting and good food to boot.

3 Bridge Lane, Sydney
- SPICE TEMPLE
Head through the neon-lit door, just underneath Rockpool Restaurant, down the winding stair case and you’ll enter this sexy restaurant and bar. Expect dark lighting and ultra plush decor from Neil Perry’s hidden basement establishment. The modern Chinese food is exceptional in every way. Have a drink at the bar, pre or post your meal, and mingle with the beautiful people.
