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.

Food and staff were excellent. We had a baby stroller and requested a table to accommodate it and they obliged without fuss. Food was unique. We ordered the banquet as this was our first time and it was superb. The beef just melted in your mouth, soft shell crab and dumplings were really good. We would go again.
Amazing food and excellent service. A favourite restaurant of ours.
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.
