The Eight Modern Chinese Restaurat is located in Sydney's Chinatown at the top level of Market City above Paddy's Markets. The Eight Modern Chinese Restaurant serves Yum Cha everyday at lunch time from 11am - 2pm and full al a carte Cantonese food at dinner time with over 80 different dishes on the menu. There is a large main dining room as well as a number of private dining rooms available for larger groups.
The restaurant has a number of fish tanks installed to serve up fresh seafood including lobster, crab and fresh fish.
Yum Cha at lunch time is very popular with the restaurnat being full most days. There are lots of trolleys going around the restaurant serving up steam dumplings, fried dishes and congee.
I went in for Yum Cha on a Friday lunch time and the restaurant was packed. There were heaps of trolleys going around and had food on my table shortly after I sat down. That has to be the best thing about Yum Cha, you sit down and then you start eating, no ordering and waiting for your meal. All the yum cha dishes I had were delicious and the staff were very efficient, no waiting to get their attention or for them to bring drinks or to bring the bill and your change. Really good Yum Cha restaurant in Sydney. I will definitely be back here.
