Family friendly dining experience
Within the vibrant scene of the Sydney Fish Markets, located on level 1 is Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Restaurant. With impressive futuristic tanks filled with a colourful variety of fish and rusty red deep sea monsters crawling over each other. The kids are mesmerised and cannot wait to devour their meal to get their noses pressed up close to the sea animals.

Futuristic tanks keep the kids amused

Fisherman's Wharf offers yum cha daily as well as an a la carte menu. The service is good natured and prompt. Hot tea and chilli sauce are placed on the table seconds after being seated. And it isn't long before the ladies are at your table with trolleys full of steaming hot handmade dumplings. With a plethora of choice, I usually order one of everything whether its prawn and scallop, prawn and snowpeas, vegetable dumplings, dim sim; everything tastes amazing especially dipped in hot chilli sauce.

The more exotic dishes aren't readily available but let the ladies know and you'll be rewarded by the interesting mix of textures and flavours in the tripe dish. I'm not a fan of tripe but somehow I quite liked the taste of this dish. Of course, the dish that determines whether it's on par or above par with all other yum cha restaurants, is the gelatinous chicken feet, smoky, soft-yet-bony and sweetly chilli-flavoured chicken feet which pairs rather well with the bright green, crunchy Chinese broccoli (gai lan) that provides an delicious earthiness.

More exotic dishes

Recommend you come in for an early brunch from 11am. With plenty of tables it will be seconds before you will be seated. Entrance is via the steps opposite Blackwattle Deli. If you have a pram, walk along the outside of the Fish Market building, parallel to the outdoor seating, til you pass the fruit store and there is a nondescript entrance with a lift.

There is even a private dining area, if you are large party wanting privacy, you can book this space. It's the perfect place to take the kiddies to enjoy a few dumplings and enjoy the water views.

Your Comment
Are the fish in tank actually used for cooking, or are they just for display?
