One of Sydney’s most popular dumpling restaurants, Lotus has been announced as the final retailer to occupy Grosvenor Place’s redeveloped Piazza.

Spanning over 1,950 square metres, the restaurant is slated to open in the third quarter of 2016 joining a host of other venues including The Grand Duk, Stella Ristorante & Terrazzo and Sak Jr.


"From humble beginnings at Walsh Bay, to the recently opened 270-seat CBD location in the Galeries, Grosvenor Place is the next step in the evolution of the Lotus brand,” says Michael Jiang, Lotus Dining director. “Along with our signature handmade dumplings, Grosvenor will feature a stronger focus on cocktails and a sophisticated bar atmosphere. With other new openings on the horizon, 2016 is set to be a huge year for the Lotus group.”

Jiang says that the new restaurant’s beverage offering will be led by sommelier, Annette Lacey (Pei Modern) and cocktail artist, Kate McGraw.


Grosvenor Place will boast a European-style al-fresco piazza centered on a fountain feature courtyard. The co-owners and managers of Grosvenor Place, DEXUS Property Group, Mirvac Group and Arcadia, say that they have worked with architects, Harry Seidler & Associates to ensure the overall piazza design retains and enhances Seidler’s architecture.

The $10 million piazza redevelopment is part of a broader revival of Sydney’s George Street that incorporates the light rail, outdoor dining in Martin Place and the revitalisation of Circular Quay.
