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.

Having most dishes available in 3 sizes is great to cater for different size groups. Lot's of great food choices. Some very nice wines on the list.

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
