Mr Wong is the latest gem in Justin Hemmes’ Merivale crown. The old Tank nightclub has undertaken an amazing transformation into a Cantonese restaurant with a 1930’s shanghai teahouse look and feel. On entering you are instantly transported from the downtown business district of Sydney, to another place in another time.
With three chefs wielding their knives, Mr Wong’s kitchens are packing a lot of talent. Executive Chef Dan Hong (Ms. G’s & El Loco), Head Chef Jowett Yu (Ms. G’s) and Dim Sum Chef, Eric Koh, from London’s Michelin Star Hakkasan. There isn’t one kitchen, instead placed around the two floors of Mr Wong you will find a dim sum kitchen, main kitchen and roast meats counter upstairs, and downstairs the bar, giving the area a Chinese speakeasy vibe.
