Widely loved Sydney Chinese restaurant closing due to impact of COVID-19

A well-known Sydney Chinese restaurant team has become a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic after operating for almost 40 years.

The team behind Marigold Restaurant has announced the Citymark Building restaurant will have its last day on Sunday, December 5.

With a heavy heart, we announce the closing of Marigold Restaurant,” a message on the restaurant’s website reads.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, work and travel.

“Sadly, it has also hit Marigold’s function business and weekday trading. As there are plans to extend the Citymark Building, it is time to say goodbye.”

The restaurant’s management team brought the first Hong Kong-style Chinese restaurant to Sydney 39-years-ago, beginning with the ‘Old Marigold’ restaurant at 299 Sussex Street in 1982.


The team then opened the Regal Restaurant at the corner of Sussex and Liverpool Streets in 1986 before opening Marigold Restaurant.

Marigold Restaurant is the last of the three restaurants, with the other two trading for 20 years before they were closed due to redevelopment of their buildings.

“In the past 39 years, we have been very privileged to have served Sydneysiders and visitors from interstate and overseas, many of whom have become our friends,” the team’s message continues.

“The children and grandchildren of our customers have grown up with us and held their milestone celebrations in the restaurant.”

Almost 51,000 people have ‘checked in’ at the popular restaurant on Facebook.
