Life with kids in Sydney City
Yum Cha in the heart of the City with outdoor seating options so you can dine under the Moreton Bay Fig Trees at Cook & Philip Park.
Bodhi describes itself as an Asian fusion, vegetarian and vegan Restaurant.
What's not to love about eating Yum Cha outdoors surrounded by trees and only a stones throw from some of the City's best attractions (Australian Museum, Hyde Park, NSW Art Gallery, Cook + Philip Park Pool are all super close).
The staff were really friendly and accommodating. We were seating quite quickly without a booking at a table under the trees. A high chair was delivered promptly as were drinks and a fascinating selection of dishes.
We actually didn't realise Bodhi Restaurant was vegan until we left the restaurant, which probably explains the unusual flavours we experienced and dishes I've never seen at a Yum Cha sitting.
What we ate:
Panfried ‘duck’ dumplings - sweet and savoury, one of my favourite combos. Not real duck of course, but still super tasty.
Pumpkin ball with mushroom and water chestnut - really cute looking balls shaped like pumpkins. The kids and adults loved them
Glass noodle bodhi spring rolls - always a staple at yum cha. They were crunchy and very tasty.
Carrot, broccoli and ginger dumplings - cooked to perfection. Lovey and juicy.
Rice paper sesame seed ‘prawn’ pillow - crunchy goodness. Big hit with the kids.
Overall, a great stop off in your city adventures.
