The menu is very interesting and followed up with great presentation including fresh greens, well combinations of spices and slow cooked meat. Desserts were also appealing. The pumpkin coconut custard with salted caramel and gelato proved an amazing finish to the meal.

Very good quality Asian Fusion food and great for sharing. I also like the opportunity to order most dishes as small, medium or large servings. Set course lunch menu very ordinary in comparison to a la carte menu. Good wine list for whole bottles and for beer but wine by the glass list was not as varied, however the wine was very reasonably priced. Attentive and personable staff member always adds to the experience in any restaurant.

Try the duck in betel leaf, it's a good combination of flavours.

Great atmosphere / ambience. Makes great use of the theme in the design of the space. Food was amazing and service was outstanding. Great for pre-theatre dining but have been there for work meetings too.

About Seamstress Restaurant

Things aren’t what they seam The Seamstress Restaurant lives in a house steeped in history. This is one of Chinatown’s hidden gems. At first it kinda feels like you’re climbing up stairs into a forgotten attic but once you’re there the space is a pleasant surprise. You see, Seamstress restaurant lives in a 120-year-old building that was once a textile factory and even an old Buddhist monastery. Now it’s a jazzy restaurant that does modern Cantonese food with panache. It’s a pretty sight to behold, and a break from the red and gold Chinatown standards. With bare bricks and light polished wood, this restaurant has a fresh and contemporary atmosphere. Here you’ll find a lunching business crew and curious customers after an elegant dinner. Based on the dishes of China, the menu also makes some detours into the flavours of Asian, and each item has a small medium and large so you can build your own delicious course or share the goodness with friends. Forget raucous Chinese restaurants and getting nudged by yum cha trolleys! Come to Seamstress and make the most of Chinatown’s best kept secret. Best dish: 12-hour braised Berkshire pork belly, jicama salad and kohlrabi kimchi
