The Golden Harbour
Lacking the usual red and gold trimmings, this dockside restaurant doesn’t look very Chinese but the menu will have you convinced you’re in the right place for an authentic Asian meal. Golden Harbour focuses on a few northern Chinese specialties, which they do with perfection. The sea perch braised in Chinese spices is particularly noteworthy, arriving at your table as a whole fish, crisply fried and doused in an aromatic, sweet and salty sauce. With a clientele of knowing locals and browsing tourists, its best to be early or book ahead as this place fills up quickly most nights.
