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.

I've been here a few times and usually I don't like it but my opinions have completely been changed. I used to think the takeaway was rubbish too but after a good sit in meal I decided to try that - my opinion on this has also changed. During a sit in meal I had naked shredded chicken which was...

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

Had dinner here with friends and we were served very quickly and the food was excellent. Seemed to be family-friendly too.

We chose from a very comprehensive menu indeed. Our starter Spring rolls were crisp and well filled. The main dishes registered at both ends of our points scale. My duck was perfect and very well prepared extremely tasty but my husband's dish, a Chop Suey, was indeterminate and bland and looked rather unappetising. Difficult to understand the gap in quality.... More

The Golden Coach is situated very close to Fort Charlotte in what appears to be a former night club/disco. It has a substantial menu, including some six menu options. We tried one of these: it was sound enough, but only the shredded duck stood out from what was otherwise rather bland Cantonese style cooking. Service was efficient but somewhat impersonal.... More

I normally come to this restaurant for my take away and sitting in, but on my arrival this evening I collected my food in great time but there was a black hair in it. This was extremely off putting so I couldn't finish my tea. Disappointing as it's good food but it's just a bit worrying on how cleanly the... More
