Late bite after a long drive. Recommended by hotel, Looked promising with live fish tanks and plenty of crab and crayfish.... Overstaffed and pushy to move you through.... Pepper beef v nice, but pricey and disappointing Did not save this listing!

We were told the restaurant was the best in the Casino precinct. Busy but a table was available. Asked for a glass of wine but was told "wine only by bottle". Looked at the wine list and found a page "wine by the glass". Asked another server and yes, of course we could have wine by the glass. The spring... More

Though it no better then my local Chinese but weird. One of our party of 4 ordered fried rice so we all got a bowl, ditto with boiled rice. The crab cost a fortune for 2 and was totally bland and I just didn't get it. Wine was reasonable but would not recommend it. Great if you like rice !.... More

Located on the ground floor entrance to the casino is a major plus - nicely laid out and very attentive staff - menu is not well laid out - reasonably priced meals are hidden towards the end of the menu :-( The whitebait was excellent as was the duck we chose - wine by the glass - slightly expensive but...

Came here for NYE dinner and found the place to be okay. The food was okay but found the service quite average and the place was not really clean.

Popped in here for an early lunch before going to the Lyric theatre.Service was superb,venue quite elegant and the food was delicious,including the best scallop and prawn dumpling I have ever eaten.The quality of the food was matched by slightly higher prices,so not cheap Chinese but well worth it.

Recently visited the Century at the Star as we usually dine at the Golden Century( its relative in Sussex Street Haymarket ) . The service was good and the food could not be faulted. ( only one disappointment they did not have and pork belly on the lunch menu) There are the live seafood tanks filled with fresh prawns, lobsters,... More

Excellent fresh food - even at 9.30pm on a Sunday - but the service was not the greatest. Our server was a low and fast talker and we couldn't really hear or understand anything she said, and then she just disappeared before we got a receipt for our card payment. With that said I would still consider going to this... More
