About Nine Dragons

Nine Dragons is a stalwart of Sydney’s Chinatown, having been dishing up yum cha as quick as you can slurp everything down for over 30 years on Haymarket’s Dixon Street, famous around the city for its authentic Asian cuisine. There is few places in the city as established and reliable as Nine Dragons, so there can be a bit of a wait (you can reserve a table for your whole group beforehand, though), but whether you’re lining up their famous all-day yum cha, one of the indulgent banquet menus or a quick a-la-carte offering, you’ll be happy you chose this Chinatown institution.

We chose this restaurant on recommendation of a friend who said that this place serve decent yum cha food on Christmas Day at normal prices unlike most western restaurants that charge a lot more for Christmas brunch or lunch. Our family were delighted with the food on offer

A favourite for yum cha! The staff are always super polite and the atmosphere is relaxing. I have come here since I was a child, and the food is always improving.

Good service, great patience with my two rambunctious progeny, and great food. We had a lovely night. Food was served promptly, but not too quickly. The Tsing Tao's were ice cold. And, the trusty favourites (Garlic Chicken and Prawn, Mongolian Lamb, Special Fried Rice) didn't disappoint. It was EXACTLY what I wanted when I decided to book for my birthday dinner.

Nice restaurant. Good staff. Great food. Was a little bit noisier than usual, but it is Christmas time. I take my Meetup group here when I can't be bothered to try to find a better place for food and easy discussion. Love the round tables. We can fit 12 people at a larger table.

Always nice here, we have been coming here for decades! Beautiful food, friendly staff. We walked the full length of Darling Harbour to eat here after a short Vivid cruise. We will be back!

Great food! We go here often for chinese as we really love the good. BYO wine is accepted with a corkage fee of $5 per bottle. The service is nothing to rave over, but the food keeps bringing us back.
