Chinatown Restaurants Tips (47)

Golden Harbour Restaurant: Great Value in Chinatown

We just took a stroll through Chinatown for dinner on Saturday night and decided on this place called the Golden Harbour Restaurant, the prices looked decent and the lady out the front said they offered a money-back guarantee on their meals!!!!

Sue and I both had a chicken dish with boiled rice, plus I had a cocktail and Sue had a small bottle of Champagne and the bill came to just under $50, which for central Sydney, is quite good value. Meals were about $15 each, rice was $2 each and my drinks were about $8 each. It was rather funny though when I decided to order a cocktail and my failing memory meant I did know know what was in them and I asked the waiter and he did not know either. So he then ran off to get a list from the bar and came back with this rather ancient list that was very difficult to understand!!! I cant remember what I ordered, but it was nice, it had vodka, lemonade and blue curacao in it.

This Restaurant was also the venue for our Sydney meet in May. Having looked at many BYO places in Dixon Street, Golden Harbour was chosen, having the $25 each per person banquet meal. There ended up being 16 of us at the meal, the food was delicious and quickly served and I think there was enough for all of us. Cant remember exactly what the dishes were, fried rice, a prawn and vegie dish, sweet and sour pork I think, a beef dish and a few others.

Favorite Dish My dish was Chicken with chinese mushrooms, and it was delicious, apart from the large chunks of ginger I discovered (I hate ginger!)

The food was soooooo quick to arrive ... I swear it was at our table within 3 minutes of ordering it!!!

Red Chilli Sichuan Restaurant: Superb Chinese food in Sydney

I ate at Red Chilli Sichuan Restaurant on a couple of occasions during my visit to Sydney in April 2006.

This large Chinese restaurant is located in the heart of Sydney's "Chinatown" district on Little Hay Street and Dixon Street.

The menu offers a large choice of stir frys containing either chicken, beef, pork, seafood or vegetables, but the emphasis is firmly on chilli peppers! The menu displays little chillis to indicate how hot a dish is, so you can choose a dish that best suits your tastes.

Particularly good value is the special lunchtime menu which features a host of dishes for under 10 AUD. I selected my meal from this menu on both occasions that I ate here.

You can find here the special lunchtime menu and view the restaurant's interior here.

The tables are set with tablecloths and napkins and the staff are friendly and attentive. All diners receive a complimentary pot of Chinese tea.

Favorite Dish On both occasions that I dined here I opted for:

Kung Pao Chicken with Roasted Peanuts and Chillis - Cost: 8.80 AUD

This dish started with a complimentary bowl of soup (containing tofu, chillis and spring onion).

The main course was a large stir fry with tender pieces of good quality chicken and a hot sauce containing fiery red chillis, roasted peanuts and a selection of vegetables. The meal was served with a bucket sized bowl of white steamed rice, more than enough for half a dozen people, let alone just one! Excellent quality, and excellent value for money! The main course alone would have cost me 12.80 AUD outside of the special lunch hours.

Can of Fanta orange juice - Cost: 3 AUD

Excellent value lunchtime meals, superb quality food. Highly recommended!!

Superbowl Chinese Restaurant: Good value Chinese food in Haymarket

I ate at Superbowl Chinese Restaurant one lunchtime during my visit to Sydney in April 2006.

This large Chinese restaurant, which specialises in seafood, is located on Goulburn Street in the "Chinatown" area of Haymarket. There is another branch of Superbowl on nearby Dixon Street.

I didn't scrutinise the menu too closely as I knew that I'd be picking from the special set lunch menu, but the usual array of dishes were to be found there - that is, soups, appetizers, chicken, pork, beef, seafood and vegetarian stir frys and rice and noodle dishes. A typical stir fry will set you back 15+ AUD.

Somewhat more unusually, this restaurant offers a huge selection of fresh fruit juices and health shakes.

The special set lunch menu includes a variety of dishes (circa 20) to choose from and costs just 8.80 AUD. For an additional 1 AUD you can add a fresh fruit juice to your meal.

Favorite Dish I opted for the special set menu lunch, with a fruit juice:

For 9.80 AUD I got:

Handmade Shanghainese noodles in hot chilli sauce

An enormous plate of thick noodles, pieces of pork, carrots, various green vegetables in a hot (but invisible) chilli sauce. I could only manage to eat half of it such was the size of the portion.

Fried vegetables in oyster sauce

A selection of green leaves and shoots in a salty oyster sauce.

Fresh watermelon juice

Pureed watermelon juice (approx. 250ml) served with ice cubes.

Complimentary pot of Chinese tea

Lots of choice, large portions and an excellent value for money lunch menu!

iTaiwan: - iTaiwan - fight with a computer for your meal

Wandering along Dixon Street we were accosted by a number of restaurant touts trying to lure us into their eatery. Then we walked past a restaurant with a modern façade, bright lights and stylish looking staff all dressed in their black tea shirts with the restaurants name - and no pesky touts. OK we were hooked, so wandered in.

The normal menu was replaced by touch screen computer terminals on each table, so we craned our aging necks and sifted through the selection. We chose 3 entrees and one main course between us as well as a cold drink each.

The list on the computer screen seemed to indicate our order was in progress judging by the little image of a chef busy at work cooking up the order and before we really had a chance to think what we would order next, the first of our 4 orders was on the table - talk about fast, friendly and efficient service! We were still trying to figure out how to get the bill when it came along. Perhaps the computer knew that we had finished and wanted to leave.

A drink each, and the 4 plates we ordered came to $35 – great value

Golden Century Seafood Restaurant: Fresh Seafood Chinese style

There are many Chinese restaurants around Sydney, but many are not really up to scratch in my opinion. The Golden Century Seafood Restaurant is one of the good ones in Sydney, and it's located in Chintatown in the south of the Sydney CBD.

It has the typical Chinese decore and ambience. It's very busy, so if you don't have a booking on a busy night, you will wait around 1 to 2 hours for a table. You can always reserve a table, go for a drink nearby and come back. :)

For those that don't want seafood, there are plenty meat and vegetarian dishes.

If you do choose a fresh fish and/or lobster and/or crab from the many fish tanks within the restaurant, they will put it inside a bag and bring it to your table for your confirmation before they go ahead and cook it. It's obviously one of the best ways to eat seafood.

Favorite Dish Try the fresh lobster and any fresh fish! :) Very nice.

Dixon: Dixon

Dixon Restaurant is a place we stumbled upon. We were walking up through Chinatown when this place was SO much more crowded than the others and with Asians mostly. So this meant we decided to check out the menu and sit down.

Chinatown Restaurants: I enjoyed the top quality Yum Cha so much!

It is said that the Chinese cuisine, particularly the Yum Cha/Dim Sum are up with the best in the world - ie next to Hong Kong and Guangzhou, that is Southern China where the reputation for fine food has been renowned.

WE ended up at The Marigold which was always one of the well regarded before my 7 years away in Europe and the range and quality of the Dim Sum served to us was still excellent and absolutely enjoyed!
Its a little more up in price since Ive been away but for the $20 each person our 10 or so selections plus rice and tea came to - about £8 per person - thats great value for money!

Favorite Dish Prawn dumplings, vegetable dumplings, any dumplings!, bok choy with oyster sauce, and the coconut jelly was still wow! Weve not usually had barbecued pork when having Yum Cha but it was offered and it was a delicious accompaniment as was the Jasmine Tea.

Golden Century: Very good Chinese

Staying in Chinatown Sydney last week was great. (Definitely not the hotel) It’s a short walk to the city center and buses and cabs are everywhere so you don’t spend your holiday waiting, and the food!

One night after a late nap we awoke around 10.00pm a little hungry. Since we were in Chinatown a small something with rice was decided upon, you know no song and dance just a snack. Well, ……. We walked around the streets and came across this restaurant that was packed and had twenty plus people waiting just to get in. Curiosity, and being told we could not get in for at least half an hour was just to much and we just had to see what all the fuss was about.

Favorite Dish We left after midnight. I had Peking duck by myself, which was fantastic and Caroline, had vegetarian rice as planned. The menu is amazing, with an incredible array of fresh seafood. Looking at the large crab and fish meals arriving at the tables around us made the wait well worth while.

I should warn you that upstairs is a bit full on, with ‘Happy Birthday’ blasted at you over the speakers every few minutes. I was also told that they are open to 4am, so in the wee hours when band members and drunk footballers decide they need to eat, it can be entertaining.

Well worth the visit and next time I will go when I am hungry and have seafood.

Chinatown Restaurants: Best Yum Cha in Sydney

If you are looking for the best Yum Cha in Sydney, go straight to the Regal Restaurant in Chinatown.

The decor is beautiful - open and airy with chandeliers and crisp white tablecloths.

The food is AMAZING. Lots of steamed dumplings with prawns, scallops, different sorts of vegetables, pork; spring rolls; assorted dim sims, fried calamari, etc. The desserts too are very good.

This place is always packed, so it's probably a good idea to make a reservation or you might be waiting for a table.

Favorite Dish It's a toss up between the vegetable dumplings and the steamed prawn dumplings. They're just so fresh, flavoursome and melt in the mouth.

Golden Century Seafood Restaurant: Golden Century - Yummy Fresh Seafood!!!

This is probably the busiest Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. There always seems to be huge queues at the door, which you don't see at any of the neighbouring restaurants. We decided to try out this restaurant, there were 13 of us, so we phoned for a reservation. We were told the earliest table would be at 9.30pm. A bit late for dinner for us, but nevertheless, we went ahead with the booking. When we got to the restaurant we had to fight our way through the crowds at the door to let the receptionist know we had arrived for our booking. Unfortunately, their booking system doesn't mean that having booked a table for 9.30pm guarantees a table for that time, so we ended up waiting an hour before we got our table. But it was well worth the wait! The seafood was fresh, they will bring over the live seafood to your table, before they cook your it, informing you of the weight of the seafood that you'll be paying for. There is a large variety of seafood to choose from, all visible from the fishtanks located at the front of the restaurant. We really wanted to try the King Crabs, they looked huge, but they worked out very pricey, so we settled for snow and mud crabs instead. One of the crab dishes we had was cooked in a salt and pepper batter - that was my favourite! I can understand now why there are always queues for this place!

Favorite Dish Me and hubby went back to this restaurant again, just the 2 of us this time, a few days later. We went past at 8pm, and as usual, there were huge queues, so we opted to see a film first, then went back at 11pm where the queues had disappeared and we got our table as soon as we arrived. This time, we decided to try the Australian lobster, sharing a 1.1kg lobster cooked in spring onion and ginger sauce with a noodle base and we also had one baby abalone each. The lobster was lovely! The flesh was very succulent, much nicer than the lobsters we have back in the UK. Even though it worked out quite expensive, it was a good experience!

I definitely recommend this restaurant, but as you've probably gathered, either be very patient to get a table or avoid the peak eating hours (the retaurant is open up until 4am in the morning!!!).
