Mr Wong

No matter how tough the queues, don't be tempted to say you're a friend of Mr Wong: he's only as real as the fantasy of 1930s Shanghai that informs the artfully detailed look of this sprawling, town-level eatery. You might have more luck dropping the names of Mr Hong and Mr Koh, heads of the kitchen and dim sum section. But they have many friends, drawn by the mingling of fine technique and luxe ingredients in the dumplings made by the latter, and the smart takes on Chinese classics overseen by the former. They know when to play a straight bat (crisp-skinned chicken is typical of good things from the oven, and crab is excellent) and when to throw caution to the wind. Desserts are more Sydney than Hong Kong; no bad thing if you're talking about the lychee and ginger ice with coconut sorbet and water chestnuts. Prices are a big step up from Chinatown, but so too are the wine (what a list!) and service.
