Sky Phoenix - Sydney

One of my high school friends had their wedding at Sky Phoenix not long ago. I had not been to this restaurant previously, but as my impressions of Rhodes Phoenix is relatively good, I was quite excited to visit this relatively new venue.

The wedding itself was relatively nice and quiet. The typical high ceilings and dimmed lights may have helped bring on that calmed subdued atmosphere. The moment all the serious wedding stuff was done, the food came out really quickly... one after the other... without much break in between.

There was the usual stuff - cold platter with bbq pork, suckling pork, roast duck and jellyfish.
Big large prawns with snow peas were next.
Then there was a deep fried ball of taro with a scallop inside. This was interesting as it was crumbly on the outside, then a smooth and mushy inside this layer before you got to the scacllop. I guess that the scallop seemed a little out of place... would have liked it more on the side or not at all.
Sharks fin soup was average this time.
There was lobster a-plenty. Hubby and a few of my friends enjoyed this sea creature very muchly~
There was also abalone with lettuce and the steamed coral trout to wrap up the seafood component of the feast.
Crispy skinned chicken, noodles and a relatively interesting fried rice came at the end. The fried rice had flying fish roe scattered throughout? Didn't really add anything... but was just a funny combination.

Dessert-wise, there was the wedding cake, fruit and these cute looking fried custard dough balls and pastry.

So I guess all up, pretty standard wedding feast food is served here. It was served crazily quick though. You hardly had enough time to eat one course before the next was on the table. But, it doesn't seem like too bad a place for an Asian wedding :)
