    I have been going to the Nine Dragons for 27 years. I come back because the food is fabulous and the staff are so nice. The yum cha menu is excellent and the full menu is even better.

    Food was amazing, and came out relatively well timed, but the wait for drinks was way too long

    Found the restaurant easily tucked away on Dickson Street, staff were helpful and attentive and bathroom facilities were clean. Food was hot and fresh and we found the servings decent for two people.

    We were well looked after by the staff. The food was perfect. I recommend the honey chicken, the sizzling garlic prawns and the garlic sauced green vegetables.

    This restaurant is wonderful! I booked for a group of 8 and we all enjoyed the delicious food, which was served in a timely manner. Staff are friendly and attentive without being too in your face. If you want an authentic Chinese Restaurant experience, I highly recommend the Nine Dragons. We will definitely be coming back!

    Nine Dragons had a pleasant Chinese interior which was inviting however the airconditioning was not good enough to keep us cool on such a warm night. The service was a bit random with no real system in place and often had to ask several times for an item or wave someone down to order. The food was delicious and of a very good standard. Good value for money.

    Food was good and portion is quite big, we orderred 4 portions of soup for 8 persons to share and 5 dishes and stuffed full. But food was quite salty so for those who are not used to eating salty food can try asking for lesser salt when ordering. Overall this is good restaurant

    As soon as you come in, you are greeted by the stench of kitchen grease. That already is an indication of the degree of cleanliness of the place. Styling and decor are really dated. They need to refurbish. Atmosphere is very dark and gloomy. Food is tasty, but half of our orders came out cold. The other half did come out hot, but turned cold quickly, as if they were just “left-over stock” and just zapped in the microwave. We can not fault the service, though.

    Some dishes were ok, others tasted like they had been prepared from frozen. Service was good, however would not return.

    Dim sim was good, but the stir fried vegies with scallops was a bit disappointed this time

    Food was great. Sitting on the outdoor tables along Chinatown was quite enjoyable.

About the restaurant

Yum cha all day long!

Nine Dragons restaurant set up shop in the heart of Sydney’s bustling Chinatown in the 1970’s and was one of the first venues in the area to start serving yum cha. The dining room is ornate and comfortable and the menus (both a la carte and yum cha) are well priced and extremely tasty. Their seafood menu is extensive and always a safe bet and there is also an excellent vegetarian menu to boot. Get here with a group of friends and family and get ready to eat big!

Best dish: yum cha.
