CABRAMATTA’S Iron Chef has won the best Yum Cha and Dumplings category in the Best of the West.
The big iron doors on Broomfield St, along from the train station, lead through to a huge, open dining hall and often as not all 600 seats in Chinese style eatery are full.
Fairfield Advance reported that the eatery was declared the winner in that food category by readers who voted in the Best of the West competition.
Maria Visalli and her husband, Phillip own the restaurant which has established itself as a must see destination for diners seeking an authentic Asian-style experience.
“My personal favourite is the Peking duck,” Maria said. “I would say we’ve got the best duck in Sydney as well.”
If you were wondering, no, Visalli is not a Chinese name. “It’s actually an Italian name,” Maria said.
The restaurant premises has long stood next door to another local landmark, The Stardust Hotel which is owned by the Visalli’s.
In 2003 the hotel burned down and the family decided to build a restaurant.
