Golden Century

Chinese in City Centre & Haymarket

The fish tank at this frenetic Cantonese place, a Chinatown classic, forms a window-wall to the street, filled with fish, crabs, lobsters and abalone. Splash out on the whole lobster cooked in ginger and shallots or try the delicious beef brisket with turnips. It's open very late but is also wildly popular for weekend yum cha.

Love celebrity chefs? Roll up here late at night and you'll likely spot some: it's a favourite place for kitchen crews to dine out after finishing the washing-up.
