Super nice Chinese restaurant in Nothern Ireland

I had to say that I was suprised that in such a small town of Nothern Ireland, there is a so nice Chinese restaurant here. Reasonable price, delicious and traditional Chinese food, also the staff were efficient and friendly. I love here very much! The only problem may be it has to be waiting for... read more

The Thursday evening Buffet is lovely. The Manager and staff are very attentive, the buffet has lots of great dishes and you can choose how much you want to eat - always leave a little room for the chocolate cake and the fortune cookie. We have been going to the Go Sun for years and have never had a bad... More

Can only talk about the carry out service but I feel impelled to remark on a meal that was poor to say the least. Tough as shoe leather beef and chips so overfried that any potato flavour had disappeared. Best thing about it was the prawn crackers and they were free This Chinese had standards but if last night is... More

Fantastic Chinese in Ballymena serving a wide range of dishes. Buffet menu on a Thursday is particularly good value. The restaurant recently had a make over and looks better than ever. Have been many times before and will be there many times in the future.

Have lived within sight of here for several years but never visited so can't comment what it was like before its stylish makeover but it's decor and layout now is great. Certainly from knowing the quality and selection of dishes, the food remains second to none. Excellent, friendly and attentive staff plus fairly priced and substantial portions with prompt service.... More

Went here with a group of leaders at the beginning of the week. The Go Sun does a special banquet at this time for groups with a very good set menu. Assorted starters included mini spring roll, honey rib, smoked chicken, crispy chicken and curry samosa. There was enough here to "nearly" do without the main courses - but we... More

We have been eating here now for several years and we have never had a problem with the food nor the high level of service. The food is great and is served efficiently and Stanley works hard to keep guests happy and is continually thinking of new ways to keep customers satisfied. It is obvious that he gets a lot... More

Recent spruce up has increased the space in the restaurant and it is looking very good. Meal as usual was very tasty and service is always of a high standard.
