Lotus Dumpling Bar took modern Chinese dining to the next level with its colourful creations. The popular Sydney Chinese restaurant and bar has been such a success that its new sister is moving even closer to the heart of the action. Now you can find some of Sydney’s best dumplings at The Galeries with Lotus Dumpling Bar. Yep, grabbing Chinese for lunch just got a little more lavish.
Head to Level 1 of The Galeries, and you’ll find a lighter, brighter atmosphere that seats a whopping 270 people. If you’re after an impressive meeting spot, the LoTea in the afternoon offers a traditional Chinese high tea with Lotus’ own tea brand, and tasty morsels that include handmade dumplings, chocolates and Asian-inspired sweets.
If you discover your dining companion “isn’t a dumpling person” (why are you hanging out with such a person?!) there are plenty of other dishes to impress as well. You can’t really go wrong with barbeque duck or the wok-fried green beans (a dish that’s mysteriously always good at Chinese restaurants).
Once you’ve put down your chopsticks, stay around in the evening for Asian-inspired cocktails or a glass of European or Australian wines. Get down to this new Sydney restaurant ASAP and get your dumpling on good and proper! We’ll see you there, chopsticks in one hand, tea/cocktail in the other.
Can't get enough of dumplings? We don't blame you. Check out our round up of Sydney's best dumplings.
