    AboutKing Tea

    King Tea is a modern Chinese restaurant, with authentic flavours and technique coupled with excellent service, a great rotating wine & beer list. We often have limited special menu items, so do ask our waiters next time you’re in.

    You can certainly book to dine with us and we strongly recommend booking at least 24 hours in advance to ensure your requests are able to be fulfilled.

    We cater for a lot of group bookings and functions – either with existing menu catering, or custom catering in some circumstances. Please see our page on Functions for details on catering packages available.

    We have a large number of vegetarian and vegan items on the menu which make a full banquet. If you let us know in advance, we can even create a completely gluten-free banquet if needed.

    Paddington isn’t great for parking, but street parks can be found close by, and there is a free parking period at the shopping centre nearby. Public transport is plentiful however, with a bus stop metres from King Tea and a very regular bus service.



    100 Latrobe Terrace started life as a tea-house and snack bar for the “trammies” at the tram depot across the street at what is now Paddington Central.

    The large brick building is about 100 years old and house living quarters for the purveyors of the snack bar out the back.

    Some of the structural walls were removed when it was transformed into a furniture shop and we’ve pulled as much of the internal cosmetics out to bring it back to as raw a form as we could get.
