Meet Madam Chu’s, Bondi’s newest Asian dumpling and tapas bar.
It might have only been trading for a fortnight, but Madam Chu’s is already taking Bondi locals and Sydney foodies by storm. Finding its home in the heart of Bondi Beach on Campbell Parade, this picturesque dining room is committed to bringing a slice of authentic Asian cuisine to the eastern suburbs.
The crew behind Madam Chu’s have an established track-record in Sydney’s dining scene. Emma Morris has been behind some of Sydney’s top hospitality destinations include Bondi’s Vue Bar and Paddington’s Don Pedors), alongside co-founder Ben Siderowtiz (The Corner House in Bondi).
Overlooking Bondi Beach, this 70-seater bar-meets-restaurant offers a stack of different dining spaces to enjoy. Take a seat on their balcony, grab a seat at a round table (complete with a Lazy Susan), nab a stool at the bar, head to the courtyard, or score a table inside, with all spaces capturing the magic of Shanghai with vintage Chinese paper umbrellas and lanterns adorning the space.
The offering at Madam Chu’s is brimming with Yum Cha classics, from raw bites to hand-made dim sum as well as wontons, bao, and stacks more. Start with plates of mixed sashimi before digging into prawn and chive dum sum, duck spring rolls, shredded duck dumplings, soft shell crab bao, and karaage chicken. Plus, don’t miss their five-spice pork belly bites with salted caramel chilli lime dipping sauce.
Swing by from their Yum Cha service (available Thursday to Sunday) for trolleys full of shrimp rice rolls, Gow Gee’s and Buddha dumplings, and a delicious drink list to match.
