Second visit as food is always freshly cooked for you. Nice portion sizes, had beef chow mien and chicken chow mien. Was defiantly well worth the wait. Defiantly recommend it.

Had a takeaway from here with my parents. I had the mushroom fried rice and chicken with pickled ginger and pineapple. I loved my meal very much indeed; a heck of a lot better than the Chinese in Beaminster. My mum did comment that her plain rice was a bit overcooked and sticky but still nice nonetheless. The reason I'm... More

Quite a few people in Lyme had recommended this restaurant and we certainly were not disappointed. The food was excellent, service very good. Had the biggest, meatiest ribs ever!

Visited the Golden House Chinese Restaurant in August 2016. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. We asked the waitress for her recommendations and were delighted by her choices. In particular, the Garlic Prawns cooked in milk was a dish I have not tried before, but I thoroughly recommend you try them when you visit.

Thought I would try. Very disappointed. Orders crispy noodles which I dident get I received very bland chicken in tasteless sauce. Lemon chicken very tough. Defiantly must of been reheated in microwave. Thrown the rest in bin! Waste of £25! Do not recommend.

A unwelcoming member of staff showed us to our table which kicked it off to a bad start the waitress took ages to come and ask us what drinks we would like. We ordered a 3 starters and... More

20 minutes from phone order to pick up was excellent! Hot, tasty and with variety, we have bought from there on many occasions, always pleased with order.

I visited the Golden Palace whilst on holiday with my partner in Devon for a week. It's in the same location as the River Cottage Restaurant & we'd been told that the local restaurants were all very good due to the competition in the town. We ordered set menu B2 at a price of £21 each & were really looking... More

Due to the trip adviser ratings system this is one of those restaurants that definitely doesn't deserve 3 stars but it's not quite a 4! A 3.5 rating would be our vote therefore! The restaurant is very clean and well run by the two ladies and the food is perfectly decent. Extensive menu - we noted over 230 items on... More
