“Good Chinese Food”

Kicking Horse Palace
Ranked #37 of 63 Restaurants in Golden
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Decided to try Chinese food in Golden so went here as we'd seen the sign coming into town. Luckily it wasn't too busy so we got a table and menus. The menu was good (tons of choices for individual plates for group dining) with 5 combo dishes. My Ginger beef, noodle and rice plate was actually a platter and "full". It's a good time that the waitress don't bring us the "egg roll" that we'd ordered as cleaning up the platter was a trying task by its self as well as we'd had just finished our meal when a coach of 47 travelers arrived.

I'd recommend trying this place if you like Chinese food and can avoid the travel coaches.

When we arrived, the place was rushed off its feet with coach parties eating set menus (all Chinese people which probably is a compliment to the food).
We waited 30 mins for a table. The atmosphere is more McDonald's/Denny's than a traditional Chinese. Too much of a fast food feel for a nice ambience.
Ordered. They refused to cook our ordered salt and pepper prawn as they said they were too busy, so we changed it. Bit cross, but OK. Next they came again. Run out of beef. Good heavens is this actually a restaurant?? Ordered what they were able to cook and had in stock (limited options now).
Food was fine, not great - veg too salty for me. Not deserving of the price paid.
Given the choice again, I would avoid eating Chinese in Golden.
The waitress was excellent, helpful, apologetic, embarrassed too.

We came to Kicking Horse Palace in May 2013 when we stayed in Golden for the night. The Chinese food is very refreshing here. It tastes authentic and home-made, almost like how my Mom makes it! It was great to be able to eat something healthy and yummy, while away from home.

I would recommend the soup, you can tell there wasn't a lot of random added ingredients. It was just pure, delicious soup. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We stayed in Golden on a Sunday night and there really aren't many choices for dinner. The usual fast-food chain restaurants along the Trans-Canada highway didn't interest us.

We were staying at the Golden Village Inn and, fortunately, the Kicking Horse Palace was right next door. We weren't really looking to eat Chinese Food but it was handy and there weren't too many other choices.

The restaurant is visible from the Trans-Canada Highway and has a fairly large seating capacity. (After we finished, I noticed a tour bus pull in for dinner.)

The menu had all the usual items one finds at a Chinese Restaurant. We ordered a large Hot and Sour Soup, Shrimp Fried Rice, General Tso Chicken and Beef with Chinese Vegetables.

The food was much better than we expected. And the Hot and Sour Soup was one of the best I've ever eaten. My partner said this was the best Chinese Food he's ever had. I wouldn't go that far but it was very good food. The portions were very generous but we managed to eat all of it.

I would recommend this place to anyone who likes Chinese Food.
