Spice Temple Sydney


Spice Temple is a modern Chinese restaurant with a culinary focus on China’s lesser known regions. Our menus are designed to be shared and enjoyed banquet style in our intimate and seductive surrounds.

Driven by our philosophy of incorporating world-class service with a deep respect for the highest quality produce Spice Temple offers modern Chinese food as it’s rarely been seen before in Australia.



Aromatic and fragrant, the culinary focus at Spice Temple is regional China, looking at the different provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan, Hunan, Jiangxi, Guangxi and Xinjiang. With the dusty aromas of dried spice and the intensity of chillies (dried, fresh, salted, pickled, brined and fermented) our menu is designed to excite, with balance and harmony at its core.
