“Local Chinese with excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is too expensive especially for a takeaway. We used to use it once every fortnight but it is so expensive and although the food is superb it's just not worth what they charge.

“Best Chinese restaruant i've been too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The food is superb - tea smoked chicken, steak in peking sauce I could go on and on. Yes it is slightly more expensive then others but you really do get what you pay for. The service is superb, all the staff are friendly and very helpful. Once you have been there you won't want chinese food from any other restaurant.

“Poor service & expensive for what it is”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

We ate hear last week, having not used it for a while we were very disappointed with the quality of the food and price. The prawn cracker had gone off and were very chewy! Will not be going back!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

This was my first visit to the Golden Cross and I wasn't disappointed. Great choice of food, we chose the set menu and all of the food was fantastic. The portion sizes were just right and the presentation was good but most of all it was cooked properly and tasted amazing. The staff were friendly and efficient and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. I will return!!

“Great Birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

4 of us enjoyed the meal for 4 from the menu. Excellent set of starters presented in dishes in the centre of the table. Followed by duck, then main courses. As one of our party was celebrating a birthday they presented us with a plate of fruit with a candle. Nice touch!
