“The Go-Sun... a Ballymena institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

One of Northern Ireland’s oldest established Chinese Restaurants, The Go-Sun Restaurant is still owned and managed by the very reputable Sung family (Est 1966). Recently renovated, this warm and friendly restaurant is still a family favourite in Mid-Antrim. The choice of food is perfect… not too overwhelming, presentation excellent, quality of food, superb. The proprietor meets everyone at the door and takes you to your table. I recently found out the owner took a master class in cocktail making so of course I had to try a few… they’re fantastic, ‘worth trying’. If you are visiting Ballymena and want a good night out with friends, family or colleagues… you don’t need to go any further.

“It's been there a life time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Well my lifetime anyway!
It used to be the family restaurant of choice when I was a boy.
I wonder do they still serve that yellow ice-cream in little stainless steal bowls.
As good as any other Chinese restaurant
