    We paid $60 for two on a 50% off deal. The satay chicken was a definite favourite, and the Mongolian beef spring rolls and duck and shiitake got a were also delicious. The views are spectacular, and I think with the dark decor, dinner in winter with the opera house all lit up would be amazing. You could hear the party downstairs at Cruise Bar, which luckily was a very good live band...but that did stop and start (so the Lounge music stopped and start - a bit inconsistent, but we really loved the band). Overall we had a wonderful night! And the team wished us a happy anniversary as noted on the booking.

    One of those loud doof doof places, quiet dimly lit. Chairs had no back and rather heavy. The food was very good and the portions were quite large. The karaage stole the show. Wagyu skewers were very tender. Dumplings had nice inside, but the skin was slightly dry. The noodles were very tasty, but slightly salty after a while.

    Went to Junk Lounge on a Saturday night. It was busy, as it is a bar, but the food came out quickly and you could always go order drinks at the bar if you're not happy waiting for table service. We had a little area off to the side with an awesome view of the Opera House and Circular Quay. It was a really enjoyable night :)

About the restaurant

There aren’t many restaurants which have as good a view of the Sydney Opera House as Junk Lounge. Walk up to Level 2 of Cruise Bar, the refurbished Overseas Passenger Terminal, and you’ll see Circular Quay in all of its glory. Junk Lounge has a definite Oriental vibe in both look and menu. Inspired by the junk trading ships of Asia, the restaurant has dark timber benches and inviting sunken lounges to accompany its Asian fusion menu.

Sip on a Kung Fu Hustle or Sensei Sam cocktail or have a look over the wine list as you take in the harbour views. For food, it’s tapas-style. You can order everything from soft shell crab steamed buns and Malay satay chicken skewers to Nori-wrapped beef and Thai vegetable dumplings. However, it’s the seared sesame tuna dish that takes the spotlight time and time again.

Saturday nights have never looked better, whether it’s a girl’s night out or a cosy date for two, and it can all be rounded off with a dance into the early hours downstairs.
