Dear diners, please be aware that Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine requires a minimum spend of $30 per person. Thank you for your understanding.
Between Darling Harbour and Sydney’s Chinatown, Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine on Dixon Street is responsible for some of the most authentic and celebrated Chinese food in the CBD. Their menu, unsurprisingly, features the cuisine of Hong Kong – a fusion of Cantonese, British and wider Chinese influences – so expect to see plenty of dim sum, steamed bau buns and Peking ducks hanging in the window.
Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine is a relatively new addition to the Chinatown/Darling Harbour restaurant scene, but their tradition of cooking is one with years of heritage. Dixon Street is one of Sydney’s go-to destinations for those who love Chinese food, particularly dim sum, and those entering Old Town will not leave disappointed. Their menu features over 30 types of the Cantonese favourite, from steamed dumplings one would expect to more obscure offerings like deep-fried prawn and sugar cane.
Dim sum may be the reason that many of the Chinese-craving cognoscenti of Sydney head down to Dixon Street, but visitors to Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine would be remiss if they left after the dumplings. The ducks suspended in the window are an example of the other classic Chinese dishes available, and the BBQ suckling pig is also a sharing option not to be missed. In fact, their menu features too many for us to list here – though we’ll recommend the market-fresh live lobster and abalone, and, of course, the Hong Kong classic congee – but you’ll have to get yourself down to Darling Harbour to find out the rest!
Good restaurant. We had a nice time with good food.
This place never disappoints! One of my favourites! Must try the Salt & Pepper Calamari.
We had a lovely table and the service was prompt and polite. The food was great and we enjoyed it. The duck was perfectly cooked! Thanks, we will recommend Old Town to others!!
