Our Story

Lotus Dining was created in 2012 by innovator Michael Jiang. Michael dreamed a restaurant that conjured the food memories so close to his childhood.

When the inital set up was complete he stepped back to take it all in, scanning the beautiful room – but something was missing, something crucial. He didn’t have a chef.

Serendipitously the first chef to walk into the room was Lucy, our then and still dumpling master. The marriage of cooking excellence and creativity was the gold dust required to make Lotus Dumpling Bar one of the best Chinese restaurants in Sydney.

From humble beginnings, Lotus Dining has grown from one to seven restaurants and is one of the most revered hospitality groups in Sydney.
