Sydney's best Chinese

Australian and Chinese flavours marry like nowhere else at Billy Kwong (1/28 Macleay St, Potts Point, 02 9332 3300). New players specialising in regional cuisine include Wei Long (Shop 330, 289-295 Sussex St, Sydney, 02 9283 3570) for Hakka, Spring (215a, Thomas St, Haymarket, 02 9280 4537) for Yunnanese, and Spicy Joint (25-29 Dixon St, Haymarket, 02 9212 1777) for Sichuan via Shanghai.

The big news, though, is Queen Chow (167 Enmore Rd, Enmore, 02 9240 3000), a cousin to CBD Cantonese powerhouse Mr Wong (3 Bridge St, Sydney, 02 9240 3000) that offers equally good eats in a more casual pub setting. The Wong faces some competition, meanwhile, from new near-neighbour Jade Temple (11 Bridge St, Sydney, 02 9252 1888).

More dumplings? Hong Kong's Tim Ho Wan (580 George St, Sydney, 02 8120 9888) gives Marigold (Levels 4 & 5, 683-689 George St, Sydney, 02 9281 3388) a run for its money.

Something spicy? Go glam with Spice Temple (10 Bligh St, 02 8078 1888) or low-key at Red Chilli (Level 1, 8 Dixon St, Sydney, 02 9211 8122).

Late nighter? Golden Century (393- 399 Sussex St, Sydney, 02 9212 3901) is still the one.
