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

...of food here and it's a busy place even on a Wednesday night. I was more impressed by my chilli chicken than was my wife by her chicken satay - the texture of which was rather odd - felt a bit 'boiled'. Service is good and décor really very nice - someone's worked hard at the look. Free WiFi.

I have not often eaten Korean food, but the Korean... More

Up in Shetland on business and we decided to try the golden coach. Service was good as was the meal. Didn't have to wait long on out starters. Mains were just as quick. At end of meal we were not hurried out but were left to take our time.

We dined here last night after checking revues of restaurants in Lerwick. The restaurant is busy in the early evening, and we had booked prior to our visit. The staff are attentive and the food is delivered to the table quickly. There are a number of cuisines on offer, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Chinese. We elected for Chinese, which was... More

This was a very good restaurant. Food was really nice and authentic. Spare ribs have not to be missed. Service was really good too. Highly recommend Golden Coach, if you are partial to Chinese food.

Thank Tonyh190
