Map, showing Lotus

Cocktails, dumplings and modern Chinese cuisine right on the Barangaroo waterfront? Don’t mind if we do. 

Lotus is a relaxed restaurant less than a skip away from the Barangaroo waterfront, with a sundrenched outdoor courtyard and a tempting modern Chinese menu. Their menu focuses on authentic Chinese dishes, wok-fried and chilli infused, with a dash of extra Sydney flavour. 

Pair that with bespoke cocktails, craft beers and an extensive wine list and you’ve got a recipe for good times. 

Modern Barangaroo Chinese restaurant on the waterfront

The experience at Lotus is shaped by four core factors, being outstanding food, seasonal produce, refined kitchen craft and terrific service. We think you’ll agree, they’ve honed all four. 

The menu features a long list of dumplings, including an incredibly juicy pork xiao long bao, plus starters including natural oysters and grilled half scallops with tomato sambal. There’s live seafood cooked in a sauce of your choosing - our advice? Go for the pipis in XO sauce. 

The menu is rounded out by main dishes, including lotus duck fried rice, crispy chicken and the intriguing ‘strange flavour’ eggplant with Sichuan pepper. 

Cocktails, wines and good times

The waterfront views at Lotus pair best with a bespoke cocktail (like the picante margarita with jalapeno-infused tequila and cucumber syrup), an ice cold sake or beer, or one of many international wines off their excellent list.
