I went with friend for tea. Never having been before I was a bit apprehensive but I needn't have worried. Food was excellent and the service was very quick. I will definitely be going back again, may take my husband next time.

Being a visitor in Lerwick on a Saturday night is not the greatest experience on a cold wet Saturday night in October, and on my 70 birthday. We were told if we wanted a good meal try the Golden Coach. We found it and from the outside it looked a little dire, You could not see into the place and... More

On our 3rd night in Lerwick we decided to go for something different. This Asian restaurant has dishes for everyone, whether it be Japanese, Korean, Thai or Chinese. They even had some Malaysian dishes. The service was very quick and we were astounded by how swiftly the food came to the table.

A group of us went for a meal here one evening during my holiday to Shetland. Except for a wind tunnel that seemed to make half of our table quite cold our meal was really good and enjoyable. The atmosphere is nice within the restaurant and ultimately the food was really good. Probably the best Chinese food I've eaten. So... More
