I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Located along Hutt Street, Golden Dragon Palace Seafood Restaurant serves up a good variety of Chinese food. Their entrees are quite notable for having a good number of dishes that you see offered for yum cha. Calling the place a seafood restaurant is misleading because they serve lots of meat and vegetable dishes too. Service was a bit slow during our visit but we were served complimentary prawn crackers so we did not become too hungry while waiting for our meals.

The Oyster Omelette offered here had a light and fluffy texture with a good amount of oysters to give it a distinctive salty flavour. The fish sauce served alongside the omelette as a dipping sauce had chilli included to give the sauce a spicy punch. Be careful not to be too heavy-handed with the sauce as the chillies were quite spicy.

While we thought the Stir-fried Battered Pumpkins with Salted Yolks could have used more salted egg yolks to make the dish more delectable, the slices of pumpkin were still fried to golden brown with crisp coating contrasting well with the soft interior. A bed of shredded lettuce provided a refreshing contrast to the deep fried pumpkin.

One of the sizzling dishes that can be ordered, the sauce in the Sizzling Cantonese Steak had the right degree of heat to enhance the flavour of the steak. However we thought the steak was a bit tough for our tastes. The dish had a generous amount of onions which complemented the steak well with its sharp flavour.

For dessert, we decided to try their Toffee Bananas. The dish came to us steaming hot with a crisp toffee shell and juicy, soft bananas. This dish had just the appropriate sweetness for a dessert. To best enjoy this dish, it is advisable to consume it as soon as it is served to minimize the hassle of having to separate the pieces.

If you visit the restaurant during lunch time, they offer a selection of dishes that range between $7.90 and $9.90. The décor of the restaurant gave it a bit of the "traditional Chinese restaurant" feel, with red being the colour used for their signboard.
