The congee has a nice consistency, and with calamari & whitebait, you cannot get a better meal after midnight. Whilst it can be a little chaotic and loud (even very late) and the service could be better, for this price range it... More

Enjoyed lunch with 3 business acquaintances last week. We have been to this restaurant many times over the past years and have also been to their new restaurant at the Sydney Casino. I have always found the food good though the service is very quick, as though they can read your mind. Unfortunately there is not a lot of smiling,... More

Heard this chinese restaurant is one of the best ones in Chinatown. Food was really nice, portions are big. Service was efficient even if the restaurant was packed, they never missed out our different requests. They should smile a little bit more though. Food arrived quickly. I didn't see the menu and the prices because I was part of a... More

This huge Chinese Restaurant gave good authentic Chinese service and food. Menu was very interesting and staff helpful in advising what to order. They open till very late and if you have to wait it is only a short time before they get you in.

In the old days it was fun going to Golden Century, with fights for tables upstairs and down, and dealing with the bossy girl with the microphone. The food was excellent and the service an example to all others. For good reason the Golden century won best Chinese each year. I visited the Golden a Century last Friday night after... More

I have spent $1,200 here (for four!!!) and also this time $120 (for two). Each time the food is up there. Mud crab for flavour (not size) was great with noodles ginger and shallot. Not the place to come for mapo tofu, surprisingly sweet ... Decor is cliche chinese restaurant as is the service, but that hasn't changed for 20... More
