Having always used a different and usually very good Chinese restaurant in Windermere I only decided to try a take away from Golden Mountain to see what all the fuss was about on tripadvisor. Well it's safe to say the old place has just lost a customer...the take away I had last week from Golden Mountain was probably the best Chinese I've ever had and incredibly good value. Their sweet and sour sauce is amazing - seemingly less 'artificial' than most and the smoky taste to the crispy shredded chicken was awesome. Highly recommend.

This is probably the best Chinese restaurant at Windermere, but there are better ones in Bowness! The crispy duck is recommended.

We always visit this Chinese in Windermere when we stay here. It is the best one around. The food is served very quickly and the staff are always smiling and happy to see you. The food comes out piping hot and never have we had a bad. It is a very small restaurant and you need to book if you go late in the evening. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were very impressed by the Golden Mountain. The choice of dishes was the widest I have ever seen in a Chinese restaurant, and the quality and size of portions were superb.
Particularly, we enjoyed their 'XO' slightly savoury dishes and their generous mixed starter for two people, however everything we ate was most enjoyable.
Also, the service was very pleasant and helpful, with perfect English being spoken, and the atmosphere was very enjoyable too.
We would definitely eat here again.

weekend in Windermere/Bowness......fancy a chinese....checked tripadvisor....found this little gem....only a small venue (prob seats about 20) but the quality/price of the food backed up by attentive/friendly staff make this THE chinese to visit...the locals are being spoilt rotten having this on their doorstep (as evidenced by the continuous queue to collect telephoned orders).....will def be coming back. We had the mixed combo starter for two @ £8 which was brill (juicy chicken wontons, thickest prawn toast I have ever seen, s&p ribs, seaweed, veg spring rolls + dipping sauce) I had the special in hot garlic sauce an they 'altered' a king prawn dish to suit my wife's taste buds, both were spot on - £43 with a bottle of pinot grigio rose
