We ate at Mr Stonepot in Chatswood for dinner on a recommendation. Here is a tip:
Get there before they opened at 5pm. We got there at 4:50pm on a Saturday and already there was a group of people waiting outside. As soon as they opened at 5:00pm everyone rushed inside and within 10 minutes, the place was packed. Anyone who came later had to line up and the line was long!
Having said this, we weren't quite as impressed with the dishes. My wife and I ordered three dishes:
1) Xiao Long Bao, which is the soup dumpling.
2) Wonton in Red Chilli Oil Sauce
3) Hand Cut Noodle with Stir Fried Beef Fillet, Bean Sprouts, Onion and Shallot.
The Xiao Long Bao was excellent and we highly recommend this.
The Wonton in Red Chilli Oil Sauce was very nice but the pastry was a bit thick compared to other restaurants.
The Hand Cut Noodle with Stir Fried Beef Fillet was a disappointment. We got a pile of noodles and couldn't see the meat. There was also an after taste that was weird. However the noodle texture was nice so perhaps someone else would like this dish but we won't order it again.
We may come back to this restaurant again or maybe not as there are plenty of other restaurants in Chatswood to try. See less
