I've waited for ages to get my food. I ordered a coconut crab, but found it was not fresh. The service is also average. The staff need more training.

My wife and I had been to the restaurant on 25-08-2016 around lunch time, we ordered a 2.2kg lobster, when the dish served, we shocked to see the lobster was chopped into very small pieces, the quantity is so small that my wife did not eat much at all. The following day we went to Harbour view restaurant, we were... More

Golden Port Chinese Restaurant is a strange fusion of many different ideas with some working better than others. The décor was lavish befitting the wonderful view over the harbour. It all said that someone had spent a lot of time planning it and love in execution. There were many floor staff whose lack of training and work ethic let the... More

This is the second time we have visited the Golden Port. Meals are nice with generous size dishes but appear to be high in MSG if that is a problem for diners or asthmatics. Having said that, we had a lovely meal. Suggest you do not order any of the "honeyed" meals unless there are a few of you to... More

If you are going to Golden Port, you have to go at sunset, this restaurant produces some really nice meals, rarely skimpy on the portions. If you're staying in town then this is also an excellent take-away option, with decent prices and easy accessibility.

The food and service is quite average here, but good enough and reasonably priced. If you are single customer, there will be no seat for you, because most of the tables are big and the restaurant is busy during dinner time. I took away food back to my hotel across the street, so no problem. Although some Chinese dishes are... More

We stopped in for lunch one day, beautiful view of the port, but average food, we like tasty food with flavour but found this lacking, also drinks such as beer and wine need to be colder as in hot weather that is what you want.

I have eaten here a number of times and the food has always been very tasty with large portions and pretty good pricing. Wow! An affordable family meal in Port Vila! The restaurant is large and spacious and the decor is all upmarket Chinese restaurant, with white linen table cloths and napkins. I love it. It's a place you could... More
