We went to this Chinese restaurant while visiting friends on the area. A lovely welcome was given and the staff were friendly and attentive. A good value local Chinese restaurant. The sizzling dishes were excellent.

It helps a bit that the Golden City is local, but I wouldn't go back if it wasn't also good. A wide selection of dishes on the menu, and friendly staff. Best to order in advance, if you want to avoid a wait, especially weekends, as it is usually busy. You can also order delivery, and that's normally efficient too. They have a restaurant as well, but... More

The Golden City Chinese is well established in Churchdown, located next to the Old Elm Inn (formerly the Bat & Ball) on Church Road. They offer a good menu offering a wide choice to suit most tastes. The take away service is well organised, phoning your order in saves waiting around, although sometimes the order isn't easy at the time... More

We visited the restaurant last month and it was good. So we decided to come back with the whole family. What a mistake. The restaurant takes second priority over the takeaway so visiting on a Friday or Saturday is not recommended. We waited over an hour for our starters whilst takeaway customers came and went. We were the only customers... More

I don't know what it is but being tucked inside an old community centre doesn't fill me with expectation but every time I come here I am really impressed by the food. Really well presented and great taste. The service could be a bit more attentive: it took us a while to attract attention so we could order, but otherwise... More

I had 13 people visit for a birthday celebration in the private room with a big circular table. The owner, Leo, had covered the table in happy birthday confetti and put up balloons. The food was fantastic as always (we've been going for the last 3 years). Highly recommended and great to support a local business.

We visited the Golden City based on the excellent reviews it gets, and found that these reviews are more than justified. The place is very busy, so booking is a 'must'. A couple of people who called in 'on spec' while we were there had to settle for a takeaway as no tables were available. The restaurant is staffed by... More

I love this place and last night we were in the area and called in to see the lovely Leo Veggie wraps followed by Tofu in chilli and black bean sauce with noodles Superb I've never been disappointed here and would recommend it to anyone
