“Not quite what the others promise”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Sometimes it is best to take the number 1 ranking with a pinch of salt. If this is the number one choice in Upsala the others must be really bad. The menu is quite extensive, and also quite expensive for my Australian budget. A quite mediocre meal for 3 people, 1 glass of wine, 2 soups, an unappetising Chicken Satay, steamed dumpling with an unidentifiable filling, and three maincourses came to close to 800 Swedish crowns. To put that into Australian perspective, we had a banquet at the Fortune Duck in Adelaide for 6 people for about half of that. To say that the food here is genuine Chinese also would stretch the meaning of genuine. Overall quite a disappointment, also the service staff were more interested in having their dinner instead of refilling Jasmin Tea cups (no tea pots here). Thank heavens the company was great.

“The best Chinese in Sweden!”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

This is beyond doubt the best Chinese restaurant in Sweden. You can get "standard" Swedish Chinese dishes, but the restaurant prides itself on the more authentic dishes, which are all excellent and exciting. We have eaten here many times and always been happily surprised. Staff are very friendly, flexible and helpful. A must if you are Uppsala!

“The top choice of Chinese food in Uppsala!”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

The food is really tasty and cooked in a traditional Chinese way. It is suitable for both foreigners and native Chinese.
The price is really fair and gives a discount to students.
The service is excellent. Customers could order beforhead for a large number of dishes or complicated traditional Chinese food.
The boss of Golden China is always ready to help, from the culture in both Sweden and China, to the best choice of your order and your trip in Uppsala.
So I strongly recommend Golden China as the very first choice of enjoying the time and the Chineses food in Uppsala.

“Most original style Chinese food ever had.”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

This is the most original Chinese style food I ever had out of China, the owner is a nice and interesting guy, speaks excellent English and Swedish. I can even design my own style of food ~^_^
Very special steam dumplings and duck, these are my favorite dishes, and also the spicy SiChuan style food, not everyone can try it~~~~~
