Taiwanese food may not be as well-heralded as that of their big brothers to the west, but they have a unique cuisine that should not be missed if the opportunity arises. If you’re in Pyrmont, right in the heart of Sydney, you have that exact opportunity in the form of Blue Eye Dragon, where they offer specialities from the isla formosa, the beautiful island. Take the L train to The Star or to John Street Square and then wander around the corner to Pyrmont Street, where you can indulge in the finest in Asian cuisine at Blue Eye Dragon – just remember to book a table ahead of time, as they can get very busy on occasion.
Taiwan lacks in the sort of dedicated dining destination that marks out the Haymarket Chinatown or the Vietnamese village in Marrickville, but if you’re up in Pyrmont, then there is a Taipeice of heaven to be found within reach of The Star L train. Blue Eye Dragon offers a taste of Taiwan in the centre of Sydney, with a menu that takes in the finest that the Isla Formosa has to offer, as well as a huge range of Asian dishes that your whole family will know and love. Let us talk you through the diversity of delicacies available.
When you arrive at Pyrmont Road and Blue Eye Dragon, you’re going to want to bring a big group of mates to make the most of the breadth of the menu. Begin with a tasting plate for two or more – pork dumplings, prawn dumplings, spring rolls, oysters and scallops – before moving onto their Taiwanese mains. We’d recommend the chicken in sanbei sauce or the Chinese turnip omelette, washed down with a glass or two of Taiwanese mountain tea or even some Competition Grade oolong tea, a famed delicacy of Taiwan. Reserve your table at Blue Eye Dragon for one of the best Asian meals in central Sydney.
Consistent, delicious food every time we visit! We love the calming ambience as we come through those doors. Thanks Muriel and team! See u again soon!
Was perfect for a night out before the theatre. Service was excellent, didn’t take long for the dishes to start coming out and we love the flavour of every dish- we had an banquet 4entrees and 4 main. A great way to really taste a great variety of dishes
Lovely lunch experience, thank you. Great food, straightforward booking and always a good atmosphere. Will, of course, be back again in the near future. Thanks.
Great food, great ambience in a renovated church hall in the back streets of Pyrmont. A hidden gem , really only known by locals. Since my last visit the courtyard has been set up as a bar with grand imported bamboo plants.
A friend advised me to try Blue Eye Dragon, and I'm very glad that I did. I booked a table for my mother's birthday. They made the experience very personalised for my mother, and each waiter greeted her by her name and wished her a happy birthday. The food was amazing; each dish was just as good as the next. Will definitely go back- give it a try and see for yourself. Chicken 5 spice, pan fry dumplings and steak with black bean sauce were the crowd favourites. Excellent service. 10/10
The Blue Eye Dragon would have to be one of the best Taiwanese restaurants we have eaten at. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food is to die for. Muriel Chen (the part owner) and Jimmy the maître d' greets you with a friendly welcome and the good part of going to the restaurant is, they always know my and my wife's name.
Blue Eye Dragon is without doubt, the finest Taiwanese restaurants I've ever experienced. This is not purely a Taiwanese experience, it is also the best Asian fusion in Sydney. I will be going again and again. Thank you to Muriel and her wonderful team.
Outstanding service; delicious food. Blue Eye Dragon consistently excellent! The beef pancakes are so good. And the Prawns in Bloody Plum Sauce are a must. Jimmy running the floor is so attentive and always great to see owner Muriel. Exceptional value!
We had dinner on Friday night, just 3 of us, and next time we will ask more folks to come with us so that we can try a lot more dishes! We tend to share many of the smaller dishes so we can taste the many flavours. Highly recommend. Staff very friendly and helpful and if Muriel is on the floor she will always stop for a chat to make sure you are happy with everything.
The Taiwanese food at Blue Eye Dragon is exceptionally tasty, the venue lovely and the service is excellent! This is our favourite restaurant to eat at before a show at the Lyric Theatre.
