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!
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!!
Great food and service. Always friendly, fast and well priced! The dumplings are delicious! Recommend this place if you’re in Chinatown looking for somewhere quick
Great food and great value ! Highly recommend the pan fried pork dumplings & the salt and pepper squid ! It's also BYO ! !
Food looks good and tastes even better. Prices are reasonable. Lots to choose from on the menu. Worth another visit or visit with lots of people to try the whole menu
Great food. Very loud but I guess that's part of the atmosphere of the place. Ive given it 5 stars out of 6 because waiters/waitresses were very average.
Good food, relaxed atmosphere, friendly, very varied menu catering for all tastes and quick preparation and delivery of food. Reasonably priced into the bargain! We will go again
The food was very average. We had steamed scallop dumplings and the skin was very thick and the scallop smelled fishy. The prawn dumpling skin was also thick and fell apart when the dumpling was picked up. The stir fried beef rice noodles were very oily. The pork and preserved egg congee was runny and thin. The vegetable and mushroom stir fry was overcooked. The staff were inattentive, and needed to be reminded to bring us utensils several times and also to refill the hot tea. When I went to pay the bill, the cashier ignored me whilst he attended to another matter and I was left standing for at least 5 minutes. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Great dumplings & wide variety but poor service - staff not very friendly had to ask at least twice everytime we wanted to order Something. Reasonably priced.
