  • Chinatown Restaurants: Good and cheap Vietnamese Food

    This viet restaurant at george street near to chinatown is pretty good and reasonably priced. Its called Pasteur. Try the grilled beef/chicken vercemille and soup pho.

    Its normally packed with pple during dinner time, but quite big with extension at the back. Each serving cost around A$8.50-9.50.

    Chinatown Restaurants: China Town and The Rocks

    by aussirose Updated Feb 13, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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: Chinese delicacies

    by beachboy Updated Apr 17, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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

    by littlewhitecat Updated Dec 29, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by Angbur Written Dec 23, 2002

    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.

    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 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?)

    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

    Bustling Yum Cha 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.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!
