The dim sum quality is same as usual, not bad at all. They keep up with the quality. Customer service is better than 1+ years which the owner would greet and appreciate the customers. The issues we had this time is the BBQ pork bun. The dough was really tough. The steamed mushroom rice roll was put in a bowl... More

Already a popular place for Chinese, but the added cleanliness of the restaurant just makes us keep going back. The owner is always sweeping the floors, making it so clean unlike other restaurants. This fall, they have a sale on oysters - $5 a piece. It was so fresh and cooked perfectly! I recommend the oysters with eggplant hot pot... More

Food was really good, ordered a few things and chicken fried rice. The rice came 15 min after the others when I asked the server he told me it was normal for the rice to come at the end of the meal. The other tables received their rice with there meals. I asked to talk to the manager because the... More

Pretty good quality Chinese food with good service and reasonable price. If you like authentic Cantonese style Chinese Dim sum and/or dinner, it is a nice place to go in north part of Calgary.

This is how this restaurant works: you mark on the order form which dim sum you want. The waiter then takes the form to the computer and enters the items you've checked. He then returns and place a new printout of the items you've ordered. The printout has a time on it. Then our food didn't show up after 30... More

My wife and I love the food here and go regularly. The Ginger Beef is amazing. Everything we have tried has been great. Ambiance of the place leaves something to be desired, but the food is great. Go eat some food there.

I've been meaning to try Golden Central for months and finally stopped in today for dim sum. The large restaurant was about 1/3 full on a Monday, which I considered to be a good sign given it's location. Almost all of the patrons were Chinese, which is another good sign. The dim sum was good and the price was about... More

I am very disappointed, you used to be my favorite place to order from but tonight's meal was horrible, the wor wonton was absolutely tasteless from the broth to the won ton. The 3 kinds of salt & pepper seafood was devoid of any salt and pepper. Add to this the driver who arrives without a receipt and a $6.00... More

This is a very good place for dim sum, and lots of parking. The service is not the best, but their food is very good. Even dinner is good to go. We go at least once a month for dim sum if not more. The price is very reasonable too.

Thank Rita K
