    Menu selection was excellent. Food quality authentic, tasty and beautifully presented. Very impressed. Sun Kitchen could improve the ambiance of the restaurant by adding feature lighting to the outside areas.

    The food is excellent. Loved the mixed nut and green delight and must try sauteed milk with crab meat. Service was fast and attentive. Good deal with The Fork discount.

    Service was professional and welcoming. Ambience was fantastic with beautiful Albert Park Lake right in front of our eyes. Food was excellent. We ordered : Golden crispy tofu - light yet crispy ; Jellyfish with Szechuan sauce - our favourite entree of the day, so refreshing and crunchy ; Fried Crab Claw and Chinese vegetarian goose - not above average but not bad either ; Shanghai Xiao Long Bao - probably the least of our favourite, thick pastry & not as juicy as the ones in Din Tai Fung. Main meals we had Truffle oil Beef Fried Rice and crab meat cooked with milk, both delicious and generous size. Will definitely go back!

    Really excellent Chinese food in a classy and relaxed setting by the lake, and with very polished and attentive service as well which we noticed from the minute we walked through the door. All of the dishes we tried were delicious and distinctive, and the food and wine was well above average for a premium Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. Our Waitress Aubrey was also wonderful too, with her genuinely warm hospitality and all of her great food, wine and cocktail descriptions and recommendations. We enjoyed our first lunch here so much that we have already booked our next one!

    Really good quality food and well presented. The view next to the lake was amazing and top notch service. Overall a very enjoyable afternoon dining there. Also they provide free parking vouchers which is a bonus (we didn't know and paid for it before we entered the restaurant unfortunately).

    Beautiful location. Beautiful view of the lake. Found it to be very enjoyable and relaxing for lunch. Service is spot on from the walking into the front. I had called in to let them know I was running 5 minutes late, the lady on the phone reminded me to come in to pick up a free parking ticket. Staff were very friendly, professional and attentive. Food is very well presented and tasty, I would compare sun kitchen to melbourne iconic flower drum- but with a more beautiful view.

    What a great Restaurant with almost perfect service. Food was slow at times, but didn’t matter as the atmosphere overlooking the water was more than enough to make up for the wait, and the team also made up to us with complimentary drinks. Food is pricey but for the location, view and service, it is well worth it. Perfect for entertaining important guests and business meetings as there are private rooms. Will visit again!

    The restaurant was tastefully decorated with a lovely view of Albert Park lake. We were here on a hot sunny day and enjoyed dining and chilling out with a view. The service was faultless- attentive and they saw to our needs before we even asked. There were 4 of us and each time we ordered something with 3 pieces they would make an extra piece for us. We came on a Sunday afternoon and ordered a variety of dim sums including wonton in chilli oil and chicken Siew Mai. We had a few mains- tiger prawns in chilli, sweet and sour pork and beef ribs. The portions were generous and food was beautifully cooked. We had Taiwanese red bean pancake and Okinawa red bean cake for dessert, both delightful and not too sweet. Highly recommend it to anyone.

    Most seats have a beautiful view of Albert Park Lake, service was great with waitpersons very professional and welcoming. Food was beautifully presented and tastes good. Pricey, but befitting of a fine dining restaurant.

    The staff were very attentive, we first arrived and the provided us with a parking permit as outside has limited parking and they showed us to the table also pointing out amenities too. The location of the restaurant was on the lake at Albert Park so it has an awesome view. The quality of food was great and delicious too!
