Five minutes from the CBD, one minute from Mindil Beach markets.

We’re at Dragon Court for a celebratory dinner. The venue is perfect after an intimate beach wedding with frangipanis and a warm breeze. The sun plunged gold into the sea, and our party set off for Darwin’s beachside hotel-casino as the evening darkened. The happy couple are holidaying from Sweden, and chose Skycity’s Dragon Court restaurant for its excellent Chinese cuisine and proximity to town. They’re staying in a honeymoon suite tonight.

Skycity is ablaze with lights and the vibe is festive. Dragon Court welcomes us with friendly courtesy and we’re seated at a linen-covered circular table large enough to fit our group, yet small enough to ensure round-table conversation. The huge lazy Susan in the centre is where our banquet will be set.

Dragon Court prides itself on authentic Chinese cuisine (with chefs head-hunted from Hong Kong) and the wine to go with it. The a la carte selection is so prolific that choosing is difficult, but sharing banquet-style means we get to taste many dishes. Our starters are traditional - spring rolls, san choy bow in crisp lettuce and chicken and creamed corn soup. For mains we share a mix of seafood platters, lemon chicken, crispy spicy duck, and crunchy stir fried fresh vegetables. The local barramundi is presented deep fried with spicy coconut cream, and in a lighter steamed version that is fragrant with ginger and spring onion. There’s more than enough food to sate the hungriest of us. Lychees with ice cream make a sweet finish.
