A 400-seater modern Chinese restaurant, Duck & Rice, gets set to open this April.
Just when you thought that Sydney’s sprawling metropolis couldn’t get much busier, Mantle Hospitality Group have had their eyes set on the skies, acquiring Westfield Sydney’s rooftop at the end of 2018.
In an exciting turn, we now have news of the two restaurants (yes, two) set to fill the 2000 square-metre space. Taking over one portion of the rooftop is Babylon, a new Middle Eastern restaurant and bar that you can read about here.
Occupying the other portion of the enviable rooftop is contemporary Chinese Restaurant, Duck & Rice. Set to open late April, the 400-seater restaurant is inspired by traditional Chinese and Art Deco from Hong Kong and Shanghai in the 1930s. Warm timbers and marble are accentuated by cool blues and greens with gold trim, giving the space an elegant, moody and modern feel.
With the talented Head Chef Kenny Kong (Fei Jai, China Doll) at the helm, there will be no lack of punchy flavour combinations, the menu including the likes of Cantonese roast duck pancakes, steamed garlic king prawns with shallot oil and soy sauce, crispy egg tofu with pak choy, shiitake mushroom and crispy lotus, wok-fried egg white and blue simmer crab, char siu barbecue pork with cashews and pickled cucumber and wok-fried razor clams with chili bean sauce.
As for the drinks menu, cocktails will be spun with a Cantonese twist, with house-made flavoured sodas, G&Ts on tap and old and new world wines also set to shine.
