“Now re-named "Golden Dragon"”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Just back from another holiday in Vilamoura.We visited the Golden Dragon twice and each time we were delighted with the standard of meals.Whilst there may not be quite as much choice as the other Chinese restaurants there is still more than enough to choose from.
The staff are very friendly and attentative and the prices are a shade lower than the others.
I must thank the owner,Lucia liu, as she made us very welcome and I wish her and husband Robert every success for the future.

“The Best View and Food on The Marina”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Lucy and Robert have really taken this restaurant to a different level. We were disappointed when the Golden Ming closed, and tried all of the other Chinese Restaurants. The new chef is superb, and we have eaten there 4 times this summer. It really could not be faulted in any way. The quality was second to none, and the prices very reasonable. We will not be going to any other Chinese Restaurant while the Golden Dragon is open.

“Great Chinese Restaurant in Vilamoura”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

I had been given a business card for the Golden Ming in Vilamoura by a friend, Wendy, who had been there the previous year during the Christmas period. My wife and I were staying in Albufeira, but had hired a car and decided to visit the restaurant and pass on Wendy's best wishes. To cut a long story short, we eventually found the restaurant having ascertained from a local store that it had changed it's name. It was around 5.30pm and the restaurant was just opening. Lucy, the owner, made us very welcome, especially when I produced the business card and told our story about Wendy. We had a delicious meal during which I had assisted Lucy with an advert for a web site. Although we had not requested dessert, a special mouth watering dish of various ice creams was presented to us. We ended up leaving with a promise to return if we are ever in the area again. With regard prices for the menu, they were all very reasonable

“Excellent meal and service”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Excellent meal with excellent service from very nice people. The food was great and very reasonable. It was our last night there and topped off a great week of dining out. It was our second chinese meal of teh week and definitely the better of the two for the quality of food and the value. We intend to return to Vilamoura and will definitely return to the Golden Dragon for a meal.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

This was one fine restaurant where my family had dinner. The name of the restaurant has changed, it is Golden Dragon instead of Golden Ming, but the food was great, the owners and the workers were extremely nice and the location is just simply amazing! The view from the outside area is fantastic, especially in the evening with the sunset in the horizon.

Overall, great place, great food.
