While recently on holiday in the Shetland Isles, we visited the new Golden Coach Chinese Restaurant. Although this is a Chinese restaurant, their menu offers a wide selection from various oriental cuisines. We visited on a midweek evening and the restaurant was busy. However, the staff were efficient and friendly. Moreover, we didn't have to wait long for our food,... More

Visited the Golden Coach with customers. The menu is vast, with a wide selection of choices from Japanese to Thai, Chinese, etc....probably too much choice. Service was prompt and a selection of starters and main courses were cooked to a satisfactory standard.

I eat here with a friend on a sporadic basis, and usually have the Chiu Chow shredded beef and steamed rice. Last time the rice wasn't properly cooked and the beef was chewy and too sweet rather than crispy. The service is always good though.

Friendly staff with lovely food. Didn't have to wait long and were very quick at getting it tidied up. Never had a bad meal here yet, and don't wish to! We were upstairs which is nice but some bits could do with a good bit of paint.

I visited here with 3 friends, we were welcomed to an empty restaurant for lunch. The waiter sat us at a table near the front door that was open with cold air blowing in. The menu doesn't have much choice so found it hard to find something I fancied. I finally opted for a spicy duck dish. When the waiter... More

Nice meal here with helpful staff. It was a bit chilly nut it is such a vast area and the front door opens right into it. By far the best Chinese restaurant in town.

I'm not a huge fan of Chinese food, but the menu here is big and there is a lot to choose from. I enjoyed the food, the service is good and the staff are nice. I would eat here again.

Busy Saturday visit to BAROC (previously the Golden Coach) in Lerwick, near the fort. Extensive menu of different dishes available - all the usual favourites. Lots of customers in and staff run off their feet, so a reasonably long wait for everything to arrive (5 people dining). However, worth the wait... the tempura was very tasty and lemon chicken and...
