Visited this restaurant as was told it was the best in china town. Atmosphere was functional big and noisy, food was served quickly ( get them in get them out mentality ) food quality was OK not the best by any means. Had to wait around 30 mins for table. God only knows why people choose it, perhaps you could... More

Went here for a late night dinner at around midnight and the restaurant was completely packed! The service was fast and the food was out in less than 10 minutes!

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

The variety and taste of the food was very good however the service was poor with no more than a few grunts from the waiting staff. At the end of dinner a sign was placed on the table thanking us for coming to dinner at Golden Century. Verbal communication seemed to be something to be kept to a minimum by... More

Golden Century - Brilliant at what it does well at, very poor for what it's not great at. The choice to go and the quality of your experience comes down to what you are after that particular occasion. Reasons to go: - Post midnight -.yes they are open and one of not many in Sydney! - Want the freshest of... More

Great at what they do- namely westernised Chinese favourites. A Chinatown institution, open late and great to have a long lunch at. Don't skip the bbq pork, salt & pepper squid or duck!

This is the place i go to when i feel like Chinese, been going here for the last 15 years. Little pricey but its worth it. Service is not the best and sometimes you feel like you are being watched by the chinese secret service as you are surrounded by men in black waiters. But food is delicious. Best operating... More
