    Wonderful lobster. This is the best place for lobster I ever have had in the world so far!! A very busy restaurant, remember to make reservation before you go

    Best place for fresh seafood. Nice to see all the live tanks full of creatures. Restaurant did seem a bit shabby compared to previous visits. Smelt like stale beer. Could do with a revamp as this place really is a Sydney institution.

    Food was very good, we ordered 4 dishes and we liked them all. The mud crab is my favourite, the portion is very big.

    Best chinese food in town. Service is suboptimal but let's face it - one doesn't go to a chinese restaurant for service.

    BEST dish is the pipis with the XO sauce. It is amazing! Fresh seafood. Service a bit slow due to business of the restaurant. A great place to go with a big group so you can share dishes together.

    We made a booking but still had to wait 10 minutes or so in a crowd of other people also waiting to be seated. It was chaotic. They ran out of lamb cutlets and failed to tell us until the end of our meal when we enquired (when everything else had already come out and been eaten). I love the food at Golden Century but the service we experienced was chaotic and below average.

    The food is with good quality and the service is very fast and efficient. Good restaurant with very good wine list and reasonble price. However, the food price has been increased quite a lot since 1, 2 years ago. Hope to visit again in the future.

    Great service. My first time to try dim sum there instead of meals and I was positively surprised. Nice presentation and very substantial fillings for each dim sum.

About the restaurant

A golden feast

When chefs from all over Sydney have finished their service they head to this joint for a midnight meal. In fact, the place is heaving come 2am. These guys specialise in live seafood (think: lobster and mud crab, abalone and pippies usually cooked with ginger and shallots or stir-fried with XO sauce) and banquet-style eating so it’s great for groups and even better when you can split the bill with eight others. Don’t be discouraged by the fact that none of the live seafood comes with a price tag (the ‘market price’ is usually reasonable when you compare it to good quality shellfish available around town). Just eat up and worry about possibly selling a non-vital organ to settle your bill later – the lobster with Sichuan sauce is well worth it.

Best dish: You can’t go past the lobster with garlic and shallots.
