Open Tuesday through Sunday, Pu’er is an oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area.
We had the spicy prawn dumplings and Shanghai dumplings. While the fillings were tasty, I'd have liked the dumpling skins to be thinner, which is a common expectation I guess... The drunken duck (cooked in Shaoxing wine) was delicious, and my best dish was the Buddha palm's eggplant. The outdoor bistro was lovely at this time of the year, but it's a short walk to the shopping complex's toilets.
Puer is a fantastic restaurant for any occasion - great quality food and friendly service. Highly recommended and a great asset to the local area.
Named after the fermented tea revered for its numerous healing powers, Pu’er is one of Sydney’s most well-respected places to enjoy fine Asian teas. There are no tea bags in sight at this Waterloo establishment; only hand-selected, loose-leaf varieties. Try the Organic Misty Cloud, a fresh, nutty tea with hints of fruit flavours, or go for the classic premium jasmine tea, an ideal choice for those who like floral, soothing flavours.
