Small place but good and authentic Chinese food. Buddha's delight is one of their specials...should always be on your list. Always ask for their "Specials" as they really are! The price is average..The food is far better than Take-Out Chinese food in Barrhaven!

I don't normally write reviews on my restaurant experiences, but felt compelled after my experience at The Golden Restaurant. This is one of the worse Chinese restaurants my wife and I have ever been to. The service was below par, very slow and not very friendly or informative and the food was just awful. I don't understand how they remain... More

We have eaten at Golden on several occasions. It is a relatively new Chinese restaurant located in the Ottawa suburb of Barrhaven. The last time we had tofu with eggplant and vegetables and snow pea leaves, together with steamed rice. The food is superb. The restaurant is always busy, so a reservation is recommended. Service was very friendly.

Decided to give this place anther try on an early Sunday morning. What a terrible mistake!! The food is still well below average I. Ottawa. The dumplings we ordered were steaming hot but quality was awful. The dumpling skin was way too thick with barely any filling. The beancurd rolls also did not have a whole lot inside. We asked...

This was our third and last experience for us! We tried this restaurant when it opened last summer and we found it was just OK. We assumed the slow service was because they had just opened and they had new untrained staff. We returned several months later and it was a terrible experience, having to share a large round table... More

We went there for dimsum on a Sunday. We are chinese so we definitely know when a place is good. Prices are average but I think seafood king is a tad cheaper. The congee was VERY bland and the fried sticks (yutzaqui) were STALE. Did they really think we wouldn't notice? I can deal with oily but stale is just... More

Stopped to Golden Restaurant on our way to Stitsville. The place was full so we thought it ought to be good. Line up at the entrance. Reality is that it must be full because there are no other Chinese restaurant around! Service was terrible and not only for us, the next table had to beg to get plates and forks!... More

Okay, as per the rating I was obviously not impressed with Golden Restaurant. Here is the main reason. SERVICE We called to place a take out order at 6:30 on a Friday night (last night). They said the food would be ready in 30 minutes. As friends had had takeout there one previous time, they warned that the service was... More
