“Even Better than the First Visit”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It's always worrying when you visit somewhere for the second time when it was grreat the first time. Well this visit was even more worrying as we were taking my wife's sister and husband. Would it be as good this time. Well it didn't disappoint, food brilliant, service as well. We will make a point of going every time we visit London it is that good.

“Good price, good Dim Sum”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We generally tend to go to Royal China on Baker Street but happened to be in Chinatown and went to the Golden Pagoda and were very impressed. The dim sum was excellent value for money and the service was fast and efficient, you do not get the finesse of Royal China but then the meal is about three-quarters of the price so you cannot argue with it.

“Rude staff, good Dim Sum.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Like in many other Chinese restaurants in Soho, the staff is at times rude and rushing to clear the table. An interesting take on serving food. But, the Dim Sum is very, very good. They only serve it before 6 pm, so don't be late.

Not the place for a full night out, but if you have the craving for some excellent dumplings and don't want to waist time, this is the place.

“Very solid experience after theater”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

We went to GP after attending a show. On a freezing cold night we lierally fell into the front door after they opened it to usher us in. There is nothing spectacular but the service is friendly, the food is good, and comes out quickly. The menu lists lots of items as "fried" but ours were stir-fried, not deep-fried...that is a good thing from our standpoint.
