“A very popular choice”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

The first time we ate at GC we had just flown into Sydney ; arrived at the hotel at 10.15pm ,put our luggage in the room and asked the doorman where to go at this time of the night for a nice meal . Without hesitation he said " Golden Century", hailed us a cab and we were there in no time ! We have eaten there probably 5 times since and are always amazed that it is always full , the food is always good , and it is always so noisy with people having a good time. The wait staff are ok too considering that the action is absolutely relentless !! I cant say its the best Chinese food that we have ever eaten but you know when you go there you will be well fed every time, with an interesting menu , lots of fresh seafood , and it will not break the bank. And yes we will probably be there next time we visit be it for lunch ( still packed then too ! )or dinner.

“Noisy, chaotic and very popular.”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Great meal. GC has an extensive menu and substantial drinks list to suit the fussiest eaters. There were lots of live fish and seafood to choose from. Opens early for dinner and was within walking distance to the capitol theatre.

“Expensive, substandard.”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

It's ok if you're in a large group (if so, go for the set menu). The flavours are so westernised, staff vary from aloof to rude ... so many better, smaller places to try. Give it a miss and hit the food court on Sussex Street

“Expensive, service so so”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Came here for a work dinner, service was alright, but the price tag certainly warranted much better service than the level of service we got. Also, the cooking was at par at best. They killed the seafood rather than bring out the freshness as Chinese cooking should be doing. Will not voluntarily come again, unless I am simply an invitee.
