Up in Baulkham Hills in Sydney’s northwest, Harmony Lakeside is ploughing a furrow for superb Chinese food. Their location takes advantage of a large local Chinese community, but the restaurant is a strong favourite across a large section of residents, who appreciate the authentic flavours, fresh ingredients and extensive vegetarian and gluten-free options available at this Norwest Marketplace, Century Crescent restaurant. Book a table in advance to make sure you can get yourself a seat, as they can get very busy, especially over lunchtime (grab a special for under $10 Monday to Saturday) and on weekend nights.
Great value for money , friendly staff & cosy atmosphere. Byo and bar available. Dishes always generously sized & fresh ingredients used. Would highly recommend
Harmony Lakeside was wonderful. We had a table of 7 and the food and service was excellent. No complaints at all. We booked for another dinner while we were there.
Baulkham Hills is not a restaurant destination by any means, but if Harmony Lakeside keeps up the good work in Sydney’s far northwest, then that reputation will surely change. They’ve been providing high-quality food – including vegetarian and gluten-free dishes – to both the local Chinese expat community and Aussie residents alike for a good few years from their address on Century Crescent, inside the Norwest Marketplace shopping centre, and it is easy to see why the punters keep coming back.
The Harmony Lakeside offers all the best dishes that one would expect from Chinese cuisine. Their seafood is second-to-none, with chef’s specials like lychee prawns, mussels in XO sauce and soft shall crab, as are their dim sum and starter options. Baulkham Hills is fast becoming known within the Sydney Chinese community as a home for great food, and with a menu such as that available on Century Crescent, it isn’t surprising at all. The only problem, in fact, could be getting yourself a table, so make sure you book in advance to secure your seat.
