Chinatown Restaurants: China Town and The Rocks
Sydney has such a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, clubs, cafes. There is Chinatown, The Rocks and Kings Cross which all are famous areas to choose from. Another idea is to pick one of the dinner cruises or theatre restaurants if you want to try something different. Both ways you'll have an unbelievable night.
golden century seafood restaurant: seafood galore
huge array of seafood cooked chinese style.. good place for something different from the sea.. however the queue is madness.. we waited for about half an hour for our table on a weekday and in spite of having made reservations..
Golden Century: Chinese delicacies
The multi-award winner Golden Century is the most favourite Chinese restaurant known by the locals. Pamper yourself with the best Chinese cuisine in the town.
It was very unlucky that the restaurant was closed when we've planned for our dinner the last day before leaving Sydney.
Favorite Dish: The chef's specials are sliced live abalone in steamboat, steamed lobster and deep fried king crab.
- Food and Dining
In comparison to Melbourne, I found that on the whole Sydney's food was much more expensive, so I headed for Chinatown.
It's an interesting area with lots to see, and plenty of restaurants and takeaways, including a good food court where you can get lunch specials at a reasonable price.
Favorite Dish: I love all the dishes - anything served with fried rice or singapore noodles.

Food court in the Sussex Centre!: Mouth watering Asian dishes
This is not one particular restaurant, it is in fact a kind of food court. It's in the main shopping complex of chinatown on the top floor. It has only asian outlets and they make delicious food! None of that self serve fast food crap (There is one that does, but the other 10 or so dont). Prices are fair and the food is delicious. It's often busy though (with good reason) so find a seat first if you can.
Favorite Dish: I have two. One is from the outlet in the far right corner when you come in (dont remember its name), It's called Bulgogi chicken... you can get hot or mild, it comes with a bowl or rice, some pickled somethingorothers (very hot stuff), some salad type stuff, and a bowl of soup. There are 3 different soups they serve there I believe, unfortiunately you dont get to pick which one but one of them is DELICIOUS, the others suck.. hehe.
My other favourite dish is from ma's kitchen, and its fried eggplant with.. some kind of fishy topping.. and a delish garlic, ginger and spring onion garnish
The Chinese Quarter
If you want top quality Chinese food then the Chinese quater in Sydney is hard to beat. If I am totally honest I thought the restaurants in Sydney were better than those I went to in Hong Kong. Some people may disagree & it may just be my westernised taste buds, but for me it was excellent.
Eating World: Cheap food in the China Town
You can find nice and cheap food in the China Town in the Eating World. You will find easy. This place is on the end of the street and you can choose lot of different food from all around the world. The hole thing is only $5AUD.
Favorite Dish: Sweet and Sour Pork

We were directed to a magnificent Chinese restaurant in Chinatown called the Golden Century. Located on Sussex Street, it urned out to be fabulous, popular, and definitely Chinese in ambiance as well as flavor. What a gastronomic find!
I had the false impression...
I had the false impression having been to San Francisco's Chinatown that all Chinatowns open early. At 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, Sydney's Chinatown was deserted. At the south end of the Dixon Street pedestrian mall in the middle of Chinatown, Emperor's Cafe had some dim sum. (Audrey118 kindly corrects me in noting that SuperBowl, which serves rice soup, is another place in Chinatown that opens early.)
Favorite Dish: This photo is of some aboriginal dancers that entertained us at a private party at the zoo. It's not easy to do those dances. Perhaps one can find similar dancers in Sydney (maybe at Fox Studios?)

China-town, a choice of asian food, you can sit at tables on the pavement, and watch the interesting people pass. Where: the main street is Dixon Street, Haymarket. Closest train station is Town Hall.

For a great place to eat thats also cheap, you can't beat the Haymarket food court. Located in the centre of sydney. its got all the diiferent types of food you could want, and also all the shopping you could want. you head south out of Darling harbour and once you go under the monorail near chinatown adn the chinese gardens it right there in front of you.
Marigold Restaurant for Yum Cha lunch
Marigold Restaurant for Yum Cha in Chinatown
For quality, value, variety and taste, surprisingly Sydney is one of the best places in the world to have yum cha (yum meaning 'drink' and cha meaning 'tea' in Cantonese). Perhaps it is because of the quality of our ingredients, perhaps it is the chefs who have been poached from top restaurants in Asia and have migrated here ... whatever it is, Yum Cha in Sydney is a great experience and if you are adventurous with your food and like Asian cuisine, try Yum Cha, offered 7 days from 10am-3pm in most large Chinese Restaurants in Chinatown. Marigold has approx 120 varieties of dim sums. Approx $15-20 AUS/head. TIP: if you lunch here on the weekend, it is best to arrive just before 12noon so that you don't have to wait for a table, and level 5 has a slightly better atmosphere than level 4.
Favorite Dish: Prawn and pork dumplings, BBQ Pork buns
Superbowl Restaurant: Superbowl Restaurant
Cheap place, good for early action!!! as not many places in Chinatown are opened.
They are open almost 24 hours!
Favorite Dish: I went there for breakfast - and also supper (wee wee hours in the morning)
and they serve congee (porridge)
They have seafood congee, pei tan congee (century egg and skinny pork),
sampan congee (with dry squid and nuts and internals)
They also have set breakfast menu which istypical in Hong Kong -
plain porridge with fried mee hoon, or with steamed noddles flour.
Kam Fook: Kam Fook
Huge restaurant which I think can seat up to 800 pax. Popular place with Hong Kong Chinese residing in Australia and also travellers. Apparently very good dim sum, but there
is a long queue -
they have tanks and tanks of live seafood
Favorite Dish: Steamed oysters - excellent and huge,
2 types lobster, first sashimi, and then second is ginger shallots - excellent about 118 per kg
Hiong Sow Ngup - which is yam mashed and layered with duck and fried. this is you like woo kok.
steam parrot fish
complimentary soup and fresh fruits.
do not order kai lan - it was awfully old!
Chinatown Food Hall - Not a...
Chinatown Food Hall - Not a restaurant, but the location of the cheapest, tastiest and best food in Sydney nonetheless. The food halls (there's 3 of them hidden away in the main street) are excellent and you'll find food from every Asian country represented. Prices are between $5-$10 a (huge) plate. You name the dish - you'll find it here!
It's cheap and delicious. Because Sydney has a wealth of Asian immigrants and great ingredients you'll find that food is as good (or better) than where it actually originates!
Favorite Dish: I couldn't possibly pick one....depending on my mood I might go for a plate of stir fried noodles (Char Kway Teow) some BBQ Pork or Duck, A steaming bowl of soup (Pho or Assam Laksa are my faves) or some Thai Stewed Pork. Yum, I'm getting hungry!
