One of Sydney’s most talked-about upscale Chinese dining establishments, Dragon Boat Chinese Restaurant on Darling Drive is merging authenticity with elegance, because after all, why not have both? This gourmet Far Eastern restaurant features mahogany tables and chairs, Asian decorations and stunning lighting to give you an experience that’s simply otherworldly. Featuring fusion dishes alongside more classic Chinese options. Dragon Boat offers so much more than your usual sweet and sour pork. Try chef recommended dishes like iced conch, braised shark’s fin with abalone soup, sandfish with oyster sauce or some Cantonese-style steamed chicken and take your tastebuds to South China at this sophisticated Darling Harbour restaurant. There are plenty of other options as well, including vegetarian-friendly dishes, rice specialities and desserts. Booking ahead is highly recommended.

Good location, great food but atmosphere a little disappointing especially for an Australian day
Staff very serious and unfriendly. Food was stale. Overall not that great.
Waitress didn't look terribly happy on our arrival. A simple smile would have made a more pleasant experience. She didn't smile even once during our whole meal. She accidentally spilled a soft drink and again spilled some water from a dish she was taking away and on both spill occasions she didn't bother to wipe the mess away to clean up. There were some egg shell fragments in our fried rice. We had the Peking Duck Banquet which included 'Dessert of the Day' which was disappointingly just sliced watermelon. Overall the duck was nice but unfortunately the service wasn't up to minimum customer service standards. I hope management addresses these shortcomings if they wish to have customers return to their establishment for repeat business.
