GOLDEN CENTURY

As well as being our go-to spot for a Chinese live seafood feed, Golden Century’s original Haymarket store has won our hearts for the human element. Where else at 2am in Sydney can you find a crowded restaurant that includes a drunken stand-up comic, loudly picking on tables of equally drunk partygoers stocking up on two-courses of Peking duck This is late night Sydney in all her shame and glory, being looked after by silver service waiters who don’t even raise an eyebrow as they trot out your pipis in XO sauce.
