I went for the buffet €10.25. Buffet starts at 18.30, when I arrived a few people were waiting for the buffet to open. Pleasant atmosphere except for the manager who was abit of a grump. A large coke is €3 pint. Service was excellent very attentive staff, food was plenty and a wide variety. The place filled up with over... More

This restaurant is tucked away behind bare at the bottom of the strip. You should be able to see a Chinese arch to find it and there's a guy welcoming you in who has to be the happiest guy ever! There's a range of set meals for varying numbers of people, all of which with some degree of variety. I... More

What can I say about this. I was a little hesitant as the restaurant was completely empty when we arrived. Cautiously placed my order for spring rolls and szechuan beef. The spring rolls came and were nice, crispy with slightly too much cabbage for my liking. The waitress had warily warned me that the beef was very spicy, but I... More

Excellent service and value. Top Chinese Restaurant ! Certainly the best meal this trip surprised that they have a low rating. Need to ask directions as it is hidden away like any jewel.

There is nothing negative to say about this restaurant. We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful banquet menu for two. The food was sensational. Very friendly staff and a comfortable ambient atmosphere. The meal for three with wine and drinks was €50 so tremendous value too. Can't recommend highly enough - best Chinese we've had in Albufeira.

Situated at the bottom end of the strip, right next to/behind El Rancho Steakhouse. A lovely spacious restaurant - both food and service was excellent. Starter and main meal with drinks for 2 was €24 - highly recommended.

Ate at Golden Garden just by the off chance and it was a great choice. The food here was delicious and so cheap for what we got. My husband and I ordered the set meal for 2, delicious! Worth going to this restaurant if you like Chinese food.

We stayed in Albuferia for a week in October 2016. We are not a couple to go where all the tourists go like the so call strip. Full of tacky sports bars and substandard food places with loud music and a constant shouts of over enthusiastic hosts trying to get you into their establishments. We decided quite late to wonder...
