I used to enjoy the high quality seafood dishes at Golden Century. Sadly now however Golden Century appears to be resting on its laurels. The salt and pepper squid was overly oily, and the prawn and scallop dishes unfortunately bland. The prices however have continued...More

Went there because of Anthony Bourdain's. programme. What a horrible, disappointing experience. Greasy, oily food poorly prepared. Nothing tasted or looked fresh.

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
