Never Judge a Book By Its Cover...

When my husband pulled up to this restaurant and said we were having lunch there I immediately lost my appetite. To say the outside of this establishment and the area was sketchy at best was an understatement. He laughed as he had been there before. Once inside I relaxed and my appetite returned... read more

The Gold Range is an iconic institution in Yellowknife. It may not be pretty but its full of character, and the clientele are genuine. Staff work hard to manage the place and its a great place to go to see the real YK. Definite "Must" on the list!

Best Chinese food in town. Yearly night out for Chinese food. Always go here because it's the best! Great service, true Northern experience

Sure, this place not look like much from the outside, and décor on the inside goes back a few years, but the breakfast is fantastic! You get a lot for what you pay and it tastes great! Also, the most friendly server!

If someone does not tell you about this place one might just drive on by... but don't. And don't judge the joint by the outside. We had a couple of great breakfasts at the Gold Range. It is listed as a Chinese restaurant but the breakfast is worth a visit. Mary the waitress and also The Boss of the place... More

Well there is a lot said about other historical well known places to eat in Yellowknife. As a business owner and a life long resident of Yellowknife I have to say after 25 years of not going here to eat in "The Gold Range Café "on a whim another couple and my husband and I decided on a Friday night...

My friends told me about the giant egg roll and even asked me to bring one home for them so I had to try it out. Due to work commitments, I ordered it by delivery. The giant egg roll is as described - giant egg roll with carrot, bean sprout and your choice of chicken, BBQ pork or shrimp stuffing.... More

Everyone we talked to pointed us to the Bistro for Breakfast - they were right. Great basic food for a very decent price. Lots of local colour too (we were surrounded by tables of "ice road truckers" - caution, language not suitable for small children!).

I met with friends for an early morning breakfast (6:30 am, and it was -30 degrees C). It was a favourite breakfast place for the people we met. From the outside it looks a little seedy, but it is only a block of a main street. The décor is definitely diner style, but the food was really good and the... More
