Recently selected as one of Australian Traveller Magazine's 100 Greatest Australian Gourmet Experiences and earning multiple Chef's Hats from The Age Good Food Guide year after year, it is difficult to do justice to Flower Drum's lustrous industry reputation. This world class Cantonese restaurant is a favourite for both locals and visitors, who keep coming back to experience the restaurant's finely tuned philosophy of refinement and delicacy in dining. Flower Drum originally opened in 1975 in Little Bourke St in Chinatown, only to move to its current location a decade later to accommodate a burgeoning clientele. Executive Chef Anthony Lui regularly tweaks the much loved menu to keep the food creative and seasonal.
The dining areas are decorated in a traditional Chinese style with soft lighting, wall hangings and classic table settings, providing a comfortable and warm experience even for large groups. It may not have an avant-garde aesthetic, but the calm, unobtrusive environment lets you concentrate on the fabulous food in front of you.
