Restaurant
“Din Tai Fung inside the Star's food court has been a regular for me whenever I crave dumplings and want to stay in Pyrmont. While much more expensive than Chinatown, (four dumplings here is around $6-8, whereas I can get 16 in Chinatown for $10) the dumplings are freshly made and high quality. I recommend the shrimp and pork jiaozi!”

Chinese Restaurant

“Get a mud crab stir-fried with olives, XO sauce and vermicelli noodles (fun fact: the largest crab ever to be consumed at Golden Century was 13.5kg). It’s a big mess of crab legs, all tangled up in noodles with the smoky taint of XO all over it. These have to be some of the cleanest and fullest tanks in town, too. Check out the massive coral trout, feisty lobsters, angry mud crabs and stern barramundi.”
