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...

Had to question the over $100 bill. $15 for a large fried rice which was nothing different to my local chinese which charges $7. Chilli chicken was bland, could not even eat the beef as it was so tough. Can get better tasting chinese... More

So we were up for the typical Chinese food experience of Sydney where you're pushed in and out in 30mins. Not so for this restaurant. Clearly a family affair they offer quick service but there is no felling of being rushed. Great vibrant atomosphere. You know the seafood is fresh because you can see it their myriad of fish tanks!... More

Came here New Year's Eve. Had lovely dumplings, steamed fish from the tanks. Should have had pipis in XO sauce - they looked wonderful!

A holidays after movie late dinner for the family at The Golden Century. There was the offhand service of the staff, the slap dash pouring of the Chinese tea (Plenty spilled on the table) being seated near a bunch of raucous late night revellers, average food then topped off by being told when the bill came out there was a...

A family treat of 1st in 2016 with my cousin's trip in Australia. We ordered a live lobster, and fish soup spinach. Nice service , fresh sea food but bit pricy.

Extremely expensive ! Never returning again. Waitress did not quote market price for live seafood. Menu did not quote market price for live seafood. Very offended and feel like we were robbed.

We read wonderful reviews about this restaurant as well as our concierge recommended the restaurant. Unfortunately we did not like the test and smell of the food. The food was too traditional Chinese for us.

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.
