One of the city’s best-known late-night restaurants delivers, but in the downtown area only. Proprietors the Lau family serve Cantonese cuisine that’s simply unbeatable. Seafood is the specialty here, including fresh-from-the-tank crab and lobster, and the menu also features hot pots, steamy noodle soups, braised beef and duck dishes and much more.
This landmark Chinatown restaurant with the yellow-and-red awning keeps late hours that make it a favourite after-dark dining spot among night owls. The Golden Inn always seems to exude a warm, sociable glow, and the food at this family-run place is always spot on. Recently refurbished, its menu features a raft of Cantonese dishes from hot and sour soup and singing chicken to Shanghai noodles and steamed lobster. And, of course, the restaurant serves a killer classic ginger-fried beef. Arrive hungry.
King of the late-night eateries, Chinatown’s Golden Inn has long been the post-night-out pit stop for hungry downtown revellers. The recently renovated restaurant satisfies after-dark cravings with quick service and classic Cantonese dishes. Monday to Thursday, until 3 am; Friday and Saturday, until 4 am; Sunday, until 2 am.
