Asian cuisine is one of our favourites, and it’s something Sydney does well.  Whatever you’re looking for, Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Asian Fusion – we’re spoilt for choice in Sydney.

Here are some of our tried and true favourites we’re sure you’ll love, in no particular order:

  1. CHIN CHIN
    Melbourne’s iconic Chin Chin restaurant finally makes its way to Sydney.  Serving up an Asian fuision menu.  Beware – you will need to be prepared to wait for a table and you can be sure it will always be pumping!

  3. MS G’s
    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.

  4. MR WONG
    Cantonese cuisine made cool.  Fabulous colonial chinese decor.  This is without doubt, a place to be seen.  Head to nearby Palmer & Co. for a drink while you wait for your table.  Great late night dining option.
