    XO sauce clams (pippies?) with rice noodles are hands down THE best

    Best Chinese seafood restaurant in Chinatown. The seafood is fresh and they don't rip you off. Must try live prawns, abalones, parrot fishes and king crabs.

    Awesome for late night dining; you come here for the food..no frills but food is always top notch. Peking duck in two courses a must!

    Seafood is great. Pippies in XO and steamed fish in particular. Opens really late so great for gigs, theatre, sports.

    On weekdays in October, get a set main course, a matched glass of Brown Brothers wine, Coopers beer or San Pellegrino sparkling or Acqua Panna still mineral water, plus coffee, for just $38.

    This place is always a winner - high quality food and the pippies in XO are incredible. Had the banquet last time - did not disappoint and heaps of food ($38 pp). A Sydney MUST

    Although that I am not a Chinese food fan, this place is good! Fried rice and prawns were really good.

    Open until 3am & still difficult to get a table 'til the bitter end. Make sure you order the salt & pepper squid - never had better!

    If you like your dish of special fried duck (roast duck, deep fried) with a side of celebrity chef spotting, then Golden Century (or GC's) should be your pick of the litter Read more

    Instead of ginger & shallot or salt & pepper for your crab/lobster go for the garlic butter! Best with flower crab!

    The big crabs in the tank are expensive. Someone walked out with a 5kg one (takeaway... live) and forked over $1,000. Oh to have that sort of money.

    Open until very late, still busy after 2am. The staff are always rude but if you want Chinese this is the place to go. Make sure you don't order anything that is "market rate".

    수십년 동안 한국인의 입맛을 사로잡은 시드니 차이나타운의 명소. 직원들의 퉁명스러움도 손님들로 북적이는 번잡함도 맛있는 요리들로 잊혀지는 곳.
