Melbourne’s acclaimed Chin Chin has finally made it to Sydney, and unsurprisingly already made its mark. The bustling restaurant is found home at the iconic Griffiths Tea Building and is a destination for lively dinners.

Masala Theory is all about innovation, from the Indian dishes to the fit out, this is one restaurant you’ll want to frequent when curry cravings hit.
