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
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the

Nine Dragons is a stalwart of Sydney’s Chinatown, and is a family owned and operated restaurant that serves classic Cantonese cuisine in a relaxed setting. Nestled in the heart of Chinatown, Nine Dragons’ atmosphere makes it an ideal venue for enjoying all day yum cha with family and friends. Chow down on fluffy pork buns, juicy dumplings during yum cha hours, enjoy a long banquet with multiple courses, or simply order traditional specialties like sesame prawn toast, sweet and sour pork or lamb with X.O sauce from the A La Carte menu.
