Sydney, NSW

Trawling live seafood and crustaceans direct from the ocean and onto tables up until 2am, the Golden Century Restaurant in Chinatown has captured an ambience that treads a fine fishing line between nautical and Oriental. Packed most night, expect to queue for a table, but well worth the wait.

Golden century has been my favorite late night dining since I started as a chef 20 years ago

The years haven't dampened my love for Golden Century. 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? Thankfully he's clever enough to avoid the pair of jittering ice dealers, busy 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.

The old standby is Golden Century. I like to order rice noodles with beef or pork and thousand year egg congee as examples of comfort food

After work I tend to head straight home these days. Having children and an early morning obsession with bicycle riding I tend not to go out late at night to eat. I do however go to Golden century for a seafood fix every now and again.

My late night dining venue of choice is without doubt Golden Century Chinese Restaurant in Sussex Street, Sydney. The fresh crab with ginger and shallot is world class as are their pecking duck pancakes.

Chinatown's Golden Century for Pippies in XO sauce with vermicelli.

Golden Century because it really is open late – until 2am and I've been there then! It's always fun and the food is great. Seafood is very fresh. I always order live pippies with XO sauce.

It's been said a thousand times before but you really can't go past the Golden Century, ice cold beer and some of Sydney's best Chinese food.

Not many options in Sydney,but I'd have to say Arisan for fried chicken, or Golden Century for pipis and crab

Golden century with a group, or Harry's Cafe de Wheels in Woolloomooloo.
