Fodor's Review

The cocktails (all A$17.50) are legendary, the view is captivating, and the food, a traditional Chinese/Malay fusion, is extraordinary. After 50 years in the business (first opened in 1963), in different venues around Sydney, this modern Asian restaurant still does a roaring trade. Signature dishes include beef Rendang (Indonesian-style beef curry), and the spanner crab san choy bow, a fablous twist on a classic dish. Szechuan eggplant that's so good it may just be the food of the gods. Try one of the four set menus (for a minimum of three people and A$48 per person) for a true feast on the extensive menu's flavor combinations.
