Every thing about this restaurant is a pleasure. The food is amazing, the service was genuinely attentive, caring about your dining experience and the price for all this is unbelievably not expensive. We had a pre set menu for 3. Amazing value. The food was cooked to perfection and served by people who cared about the quality of their food... More

Just got back from the restaurant. The service is good, the food is very nice. The rice dishes are enough for two, but is slightly salty. The owner is a character, who stands at the end of the lane to welcome you in. Give it a try.

Set back at the southern end of 'The Strip' it is easy to overlook or dismiss this place. However if you fancy a Chinese (& for some reason we did) the Golden Garden is worth considering. The Chinese Hors D'oeuvres starter was excellent. We shared noodles and a couple of dishes and there was very little MSG in evidence. Really... More

This restaurant is at the south end of the Strip so it is a pretty busy area. The Golden Garden is not actually on the main street but its entrance is up a short alley (about 15-20m) off the strip (at thes ide of El Rancho restaurant) but don't let that put you off. when you walk up the alley...

Lovely restaurant very clean and spacious inside! Staff are very friendly. Prices are very good and the food is absolutely gorgeous one of the best chinese restaurants I have been to anywhere in the world. My partner doesn't really enjoy chinese food and he absolutely loved it.
