If you can look past the laminated tables and the 70's Chinese decore then you will be in for an oriental feast.
This place is where the Chinese chefs eat after they finish work.
Open 7 Days
11 30am-2am Lic/BYO Cork $3.5 ea
This is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Sydney ;)
The servings are very large, so do not over order.
Unfortunately the good name of this restaurant has led to price increases.
It's not really that cheap for Chinatown, but the quality is always consistent.
Favorite Dish: BBQ Pork
BBQ Duck with plum sauce.
Open til late, this is THE place for the top chefs of Sydney to dine. That aside it's a good, honest place to eat well and be amused by the surly but efficient waiters.
The owner doesn't move from his spot at the front of the restaurant and directs traffic around him.
Those coming alsone need not worry, groups big and small find themselves dining elbow to elbow with others in shared tables at the front of the shop.
The duck is the signature dish - luscious meat served in a pancake for the first course then the remaining meat is either Sang Choi Bow style or with noodles or with rice - whatever takes your fancy. Artery clogging stuff!
Favorite Dish: Salt and Chilli Squid
Peking Duck two courses
Fried Tofu with Chilli Salt
Steamed Chinese Broccoli
BBQ King Restaurant (in Chinese called as Tuck Kay)
Grotty looking place but it has been there for yonks. It is not flashy - but their noddles and rice meals almost fast food meals. Good for quick lunch and take away.As a student we used to buy the roast meat, especially char siew and keep them wrapped in foil and during exams season, we would put the meat on the griller and warm up - eat with just boiled rice and sliced cucumber and that is our exam season dinner!!!!
Favorite Dish: Excellent roast goose, duck and pork, suckling pig. I called for a combination to eat with my kiong choong low meen (which is shallots and ginger noddles)
beef and beef tendon noodles (ngau lam loy meen)
They of course of the regular sutff as well - but i love their roast meat. complimentary soup also which they used lots of pork stock to boil for a long time.
BBQ King on Goulburn St. Chinese restaurant, kinda kitch but it's so good!
Price is not bad. I went with 9 friends and I ended up paying AUD$12. It doesnt look all that wonderful from the outside, but i can fully assure you that it is so worth it! So much so Hugo Weaving (Australian actor, you know, from The Matrix!!) was enjoying his dinner behind my table with a few close friends as well--BBQ King must be doing something right!!
Favorite Dish: You really have to try the squid in chilli salt. very nice! I also like their tea so try that too!!
The BEST and MOST FAMOUS Chinese Bar-B-Q in Sydney. I was there almost once every week, my fave dish is Peking Duck (crispy-skin duck wrapped with rice paper + sweet brown sauce.) They serve large portion dishes in quite a reasonable price, around 10-15 AUD/Person. Actually the meal is so big that I once bought a dry noodle with roasted-pork and ate that for 2 whole days!! Finding BBQ King is not difficult at all, just walk along Goulburn Street (heading to China Town) and BBQ King will be at your right hand side.
Favorite Dish: Peking Duck
On entering this restaurant you are visually accosted by images of dead, bald chickens lined up in row after rows, or deap red ducks on hooks, hanging in multitudes with limp necks. If the pictures on the walls dont put you off, then you probably won't mind the rundown decor, or the fact you had to queue for half an hour to sit at a wonky table!
All this aside, BBQ King does live up to the hype food wise. The Peking Duck entree is the best I have EVER had, anywhere in the world! The prices are fantastic and this is a great venue for a get together with friends. The serving sizes provide good value, and the service is quick and given with a smile, but don't be offended if the staff don't stick around and chat, this place is SUPER busy!
Favorite Dish: Peking Duck entree all the way!!!
