Great night out with the special Chinese New Year banquet. Food and Drinks were amazing. Waiting time and service for 2nd seating was a bit too long and not spot on...

Our first time and we loved it. We have been wanting to go for ages and finally on our anniversary, we made it. The flavours were incredible. Really looking forward to returning many times in the future. Will be recommending it to everyone we know.

A worthy competitor to Mr Wong with a more upmarket look, but the competition’s food has the edge, by a duck’s bill.

Great food... ordered too much but was delicious. Tried to order wine but out of stock so chose an alternative. The lighting is obviously a weird setup as hard to see what you are eating and the people you are talking to. If anything that was the main disappointment

Delicious (but spicy) Cantonese food. Of course you can get similar dishes elsewhere for less but this provides a nice atmosphere and is good for special occasions

Consistently great in all fronts - one of Sydney’s best nights out!

About Spice Temple

Spice Up My Life Down in the basement of Sydney’s City Mutual Building, you’ll find yourself in a very exclusive little hideout. It’s the Spice Temple, a Chinese restaurant like no other. The low moody lighting instantly put you in the mood for... romance, and the chic decor gives the place so much elegance. Run by pioneering chef, Neil Perry, the Spice Temple serves food inspired by regional Chinese dishes, steering clear of your run-of-the-mill Cantonese. Flavours are taken from the provinces and blended into unique and modern dishes, signatures of this world-class chef. Culinary elements include pickled and fermented ingredients and the aromatic dried spices of China. Wines have been selected to match each and every meal, and cocktails from the bar are as carefully created as the cuisine. The service, needless to say, is excellent at this sophisticated restaurant, and the vibe is geared towards opulence and luxury. Even the music is carefully chosen, done by the man who made soundtracks for Moulin Rouge and Romeo & Juliet. Romantic, no? So why not take that special someone somewhere ... special? This restaurant is receiving rave reviews for its sexiness. Best Dish: mango pudding with Chantilly cream and the 3 flavours eggplant
