That Sydney hosts the largest Lunar New Year festivities outside of mainland China attests to the significance of Chinese culture in the city. For Sydney residents, this extends to a love affair with dumplings, and those on the menu at Mr Wong are a perennial favourite: exquisitely crafted and melt-in-your-mouth. Set over two levels of a heritage building in the city centre, this atmospheric 240-seat restaurant specialises in Cantonese cuisine – its roast duck is another hit – and is decked out in the spirit of 1930s jazz-era Shanghai.
