Busy and bustling and always full this reastuarant has the best fresh seafood in Sydney. The service is good and fast. The price is on the expensive side however worth it.

The pipis with XO sauce and vermicelli were wonderful! Our waiter brought them first without the vermicelli, so be sure to have that on the dish. Also, 1/2 kilo of pipis is plenty for 2 people. The "Signature Dim Sum," however, was almost inedible. It contained 4 dumplings (2 each of a type) and a two scallops that were not... More

I ventured to the golden century after a music gig at the new ICC and I have to admit that the food was amazing. It was nearly almost midnight mid week and this place was packed and we had to wait for about 10-15mins but it was worth the wait. The service was a bit lacking initially but once they... More

I like this place, the vibe is cool. Golden Century has an extended range of wines from all around the world. Good price for wine and food. Their seafood is amazing and the presentation is amazing. Very nice restaurant for a business lunch or a friend dinner.

The food is OK, but portions are huge. The environment could be improved significantly and staff could have been friendlier and more attentive...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
