Waitan Restaurant, China Town, Sydney

This is a new restaurant so you don't really know if it will good. Time generally determines whether one will make it or not. Having read a few reviews about the lavish opening and how much coin was spent on this place; I didn't know what to expect.

Apparently the highlight dish to try was the duck. My munchkin friend ordered the duck even though it was for two people and she is tiny.  Her verdict was good but expected more for a signature dish

My fish was really nice and well cooked in a thai red curry broth. It probably needed a little more moisture to be perfect. The dessert was nice but I couldn't taste the miso.  Maybe give it a miss and get dessert elsewhere.

A nice place for a posh dinner

Price = ~ 40-50 per person


Duck bun
Miso Cheesecake

Waitan Restaurant on Urbanspoon


  1. Been there done that. Will not be back again. Very expensive, ordinary service, food very average, quite expensive and to top it of paper napkins when nothing is under $30 for very small portions. They have to kidding about thier "signature dish" peking duck.
    Truly don't waste your time or money.

    1. I'm not a fan of duck normally anyway but the fish was really good. It's definitely on the expensive side. Time will tell if it can compete with the local favourites in China Town

  2. possibly worst asian restaurant in the city

    overrated and overpriced 2/10
