We ordered off the Yumcha menu for lunch. We did not need to wait long for the food to come out. All dishes were delicious. Even the vegetarian gorged himself. No mango pancakes available though

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
