Long standing provenance

It has been here for a long time which tells you good things. Located at the end of the Crescent, the "other" Main Street of the town centre it has a traditional feel to it with a good range and quality of food you would expect. Don't expect the newest most modern decor it's the tradition you... read more

Probably one of the longest running Chinese restaurants in Spalding but still definitely the best by far. Can be on the pricy side compared to others but in my opinion definitely worth the bit extra. Food is the best

The owner of this small chinese restaurant made us very welcome. We chose one of the set meals for two people and we were not disappointed, except that we had no room for dessert! We would eat here again.

We visited the Golden Tree on a Saturday night and it was very busy. People were ordering takeaways and the seating area was full. Which goes to show how good the food is. The restaurant has been recently decorated and looks very airy, the ladies bathroom is very good, the hand drier needs improving though. Back to the food, the... More

This is often an overlooked Chinese as it's not central to town or on any roads that are heavily used, the food is ok and the price is fair but nothing outstanding just your average run of the mill Chinese takeaway.

I have eaten here since I was a child and in my opinion no other Chinese food compares to it. It is a bit pricier than the other local restaurants but worth every penny. The restaurant is always very clean, food is quick and delicious and the staff are welcoming. We now take our children to eat here and they... More

Early on a Sunday evening the other customers were for takeaways, and the Golden City is clearly a popular choice for locals. The restaurant area was a little cramped but the atmosphere was welcoming and everything was spick and span. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the food was well cooked and well presented. Definitely worth another... More

While I have been here many times, compared to other local chinese restaurants this one can be hidden and overshadowed. While the food is good, it doesn't stand out compared to others but I have never complained personally. Take away is also available and the staff are very pleasant.

Superb food. Attentive staff. I have visited this long established restaurant many times since 1976 and never had anything less than superb food and service. Can fully recommend to anyone.
