Chinese is one of the most ancient and diverse cuisines in the world, with dishes often varying wildly from region to region. Luckily for us, the city is peppered with restaurants that reflect that – from dumplings and yum cha to fine-diners and fusion. So back away from the neon-tinged sweet-and-sour pork and try one or all of these Sydney stalwarts.
