Did you know? Chinese is officially Australia’s favourite cuisine, with seven out of ten Aussie’s saying they enjoy a meal of yum cha, spicy Sichuan or Peking duck pancakes. We’ve researched our favourite Chinese BYO restaurants for your dining pleasure, and matched them with the perfect Liquormart wines. Cheers!

Partial to dim sum? Why not try a Blanc de Blanc like the Madame Coco
Like to spice things up? We’d suggest an off-dry rose like the Belle Epine Rose
For the more traditional, how about a Dead Duck Pinot, a match made in heaven

 

China Red

206 Bourke Street
Melbourne

They’ve got a reputation for Shanghai xiao long bao, and be warned – a steamer basket of eight will simply not be enough, so order two for your own double happiness.

Hutong

Book in advance, because the restaurant's three levels of seating are consistently occupied with diners. Don't bother with anything else on the menu — just come for the hand-assembled bliss-bombs (otherwise known as dumplings), served fried or steamed or spurting with hot soup, xaio long bao-style.

Top Choice

17  Market Street
Woolongong

Delicious vegetarian meals and mock meat at a reasonable price!! 

Chinese Noodle House

8 Quay Street
Haymarket

This place is so popular, the lines snake out the doors every lunchtime which means you either need to get there super early or take along a good book while you wait. While the room only seats around 30 people, once you're seated, you're in for some treats of noodly proportions like hand-pulled noodles with pork mince and light-as-a-feather dumplings. The northwestern handmade noodles are offset by the giant (and slightly weird) hunting tapestries all over the walls that make it look like a mix between a discount rug shop and fetish house. But boy, are the noodles good.
