Great Crab place!!

Great place to have some seafood especially their fresh crabs! try ordering their duck mince wrapped in lettuce. dont opt for the traditional chinese food you see in family restaurants (like kung-pao chicken & sweet sour pork) then you can truly enjoy this place.

With the relatively high Chinese population in Sydney, one would expect to find excellent Chinese restaurants. We are sure that there must be some very good ones, but the Golden Century Seafood Restaurant was not one of them. The items which we ordered were standard fare - not exotic, special or even seafood. We had Steamed Dumplings (Gow Gee) as... More

It has a very plain/cheap & dated interior yet there are bottles on the menu for over $10k. There appears to be a steady demand as all the tables are taken and people are queuing to get in. The food was real good and reasonably priced, granted you could pay top dollar if you wish. It's cool the way they... More

Have been looking forward to dining here for a long time even though heard mixed reviews. Had to choose some of the basic dishes to keep the price from getting ridiculously expensive,all ok but that's it, ,I think you have to be a big spender to get looked after in this restaurant

we have been going to the Century for over 15 years and the last time 2 times we went we found it a bit ordinary. Friday night was the last straw. Staff are always abrupt but this time they were down right rude. We always buy the fresh seafood which is overpriced but we do not mind paying if the... More

This place used to be gold. Now terrible. Expensive, soggy food. Very average meal and terrible non existent service. Then when I came to pay some guy we haven't seen all night comes over with the eftpos machine and asks me "what tip I want to give?" I say "none, to reflect the level of service i received" he responds... More

Always buzzing with people and food. Amazing menu. Efficient though curt service. For lovers of authentic Chinese food and of course seafood in particular.

This restaurant is so busy and people are still lining up at 9pm on a weekday (even with reservation). There is a lot of live seafood in the tanks and we expect that the food would be very tasty given how busy the restaurant is. However we are disappointed - the sweet and sour pork was soggy,the broccoli with crab... More

If you want fresh fish or Peking Duck, this is the place to go! The vast selection of fresh fish and shell fish is amazing, and the clientele really knew what to order! Staff was super friendly, and our Peking Duck was one of the best we've ever eaten!

Every time we visit Sydney (from Adelaide) we MUST eat at the Golden Century restaurant. They serve a great variety of seafood and a varied selection of other Chinese dishes. Servings are very generous and nicely presented. We ordered just 2 main courses and some rice and just could not eat all that was presented. The restaurant is ALWAYS busy... More
