Yummy crab claws!!

I dont do well with chinese food, but golden joys crab claws are delectable!! Thats the biggest plus. For people who love chinese, do rush. N drinks are cheaper thanks to the tax exemption at china town. The rich chinese decor is fascinating too.

My association with Golden Joy or rather its owner Robert Liao goes back more than twelve years when the tanneries in Tangra or the Chinatown of Kolkata were being shifted to outskirts. Most of the tannery owners were left with huge palatial places. Most of them started a side business by opening a restaurant. Robert started Golden Joy with a... More

I was returning to Tangra after about 35 years. Last time around, it was dark alleys and people selling food out of drums in the lanes there, and the question asked was "you pork or you no pork". After that, you got food in a bowl, hot and steaming, and you got a pair of chopsticks or a fork. Now... More

Strategically located at the entrance of Chinatown next to Beijing. Valet parking was like a breeze. A group of 17 corporates visited during lunch. Table was made available immediately. This restaurant has the best ambiance in the locality. In starters we ordered Stuffed Mushroom and Threaded Paneer for the vegetarians. While the non-vegetarians selected Threaded Chicken, Lut Me Chicken, Woolly... More

This restaurant is located in Tanga, opposite the restaurant Beijing. I usually go to two Chinese restaurants whenever I am in India and this restaurant is No. 1 on the list. The food is really good and the service really exceptional. They even customize the spices for my wife.
