Golden Century Seafood Restaurant

393-399 Sussex St.
Sydney, New South Wales, 2000, Australia
TEL: 61-2-9212-3901

A longtime Chinatown institution, Golden Century is renowned for its authentic Cantonese cuisine with an emphasis on fresh seafood. Frequented by off-duty local chefs and late night crowds (it’s open until 4 a.m.), the restaurant is lined with two dozen seafood tanks containing everything from parrot fish to abalone. Resembling a banquet hall, the cavernous dining room is also furnished with white-clothed tables set beneath red paper lanterns. The lengthy menu includes such specialties as deep-fried mud crab with salt and pepper, and lobster sashimi served in two courses: one with wasabi and soy sauce, the other deep-fried with chili.

Insider Tip:

The dessert menu is limited here, so after dinner, walk to the nearby Emperor’s Garden Cake & Bakery for fried sesame balls, coconut cocktail buns, and custard-filled Emperor’s Puffs.
