Spice Temple Sydney is one of Australia’s best modern Chinese restaurants, located beneath Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney, on the corner of Hunter and Bligh Streets. The culinary focus here is regional China and the different provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan, Hunan, Jiangxi, Guangxi and Xinjiang. Spice Temple Sydney’s unique and truly special dishes are driven by Neil Perry’s long fostered passion for Asian cuisine, and will delight the senses with their contrasting tastes and textures. There is chilli for chilli lovers, or subtle flavours for guests wanting a more mild experience. The dining room is warm and dramatically lit and the private dining spaces are intimate and relaxed, with subtle influences of China’s exotic street hawker food markets.
