Welcome to The Rice Den

Our team serves up modern Cantonese in a contemporary setting on Sydney’s north shore. The focus is on farm-to-table ingredients spun into delicious reincarnations of dishes inspired by our homeland. These dishes are perfectly matched with our very own brew, The Rice Den lager, and our unique Canton-inspired cocktails.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, The Rice Den is a perfect venue for all occasions, whether you’re having a quick business lunch, an intimate dinner for two, or a boisterous group gathering.

And if that isn’t enough, you can take The Rice Den home with you. Browse through our Cantonese deli and pick up one of our housemade sauces, condiments or loose leaf teas, all of which have been specially created in collaboration with our finest suppliers.

The Rice Den – Good Food

Chandos Street, St Leonards, is not the kind of place that springs to mind when planning a fun night out with friends. Yet on a cold night, in a gloomy canyon of empty office buildings near the Pacific Highway, a glowing corner beckons.
