Visited the Golden Garden this evening and unfortunately the food was not up to scratch. I had a vegetable spring roll which was tasteless. My husband had soup which was ok. The sauces for the main course were very gloopy and greasy. We ordered two coffees and they were so bad we were unable to drink them. Whilst the man... More

Excellent in every respect, great food, great prices, good service and a free gift at the end. The Chinese man waiting at the end of the alley will amuse and escort you to be greeted and seated. I have never had an experience as good as this in any UK Chinese restaurant I have visited.

Myself and my other half are in the habit of having a Chinese one of the nights of our holiday when we go away. The Golden Garden didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly, the food was enjoyable and the cost was extremely reasonable. We paid €37 euros for two starters, two mains with sides, half a bottle of wine, a... More

The chicken sweetcorn soup was like water, sweet and sour dishes tasted like ketchup mixed with water and sugar. My advice is don't bother with this place.

After reading the fantastic reviews on trip advisor, myself and my husband were eager to try this place out. I wish we hadn't. The starters were awful, and we had four starters, none of which were good, a couple of which were in my opinion inedible. My main was rubbish, although my husband said his sizzling beef was good.

We have eaten here on each of our last 3 years visits. previously we have eaten at other Chinese in the area but now find this one offers the best combination of friendly staff, good food & good wine all at a good price. The restaurant is clean and welcoming and you leave feeling you have had a really good... More

Visited here last night and ordered set menu E. The food was hot and delicious with excellent service. We were both really impressed with this lovely resteraunt. Looking forward to our next visit. PS the young lady who clears and tidies up works ever so hard and the elderly gent who meets and greets on arrival is an absolute treasure.
