    Food was fab, service was pleasant but a mix of full on and then suddenly nothing. Food was a little overpriced considering the simplicity of many of the dishes. Because space is at a premium, I must have had my chair knocked by one of the staff members at least 10 times. The food was definitely the hero of the night. Will be back.

    Great food as always. Service a bit hit and miss. The eggplant and noodles were excellent. And very convenient location near the Sydney Theatre Company

    Lotus Walsh Bay is my favourite dumpling restaurant in Sydney and quite possibly the world. Wontons in Spicy Sauce, any of the pot stickers, beef -- I wish they had loyalty cards :)

    It is our go to Sunday Dumplings. Easy parking at the door. A friend recommended Lotus a few years ago as they worked nearby. Truly lovely fresh food. Our favourite dish at the moment is the Eggplant. The crispy Chicken is alway a must have.

About the restaurant

Historical Walsh Bay housed the whaling and trade ports of Sydney – it was colloquially known as the “Hungry Mile” in the depression years with droves congregating in hope of a day’s work. In current times the precinct still attracts droves of hungry mouths, but to a vibrant dining and theatre scene.

The Lotus Dumpling Bar began life as a warehouse built in the early 1900s for the Sydney Port Authority. There are remnants of the past in this rustic space with its polished copper tones and beautifully exposed brickwork. Walsh Bay is where the old transforms into the new.

At Dumpling Bar the service is professional and familiar, being a local favourite. We look forward to welcoming you to experience our original restaurant.
