We planned to have good Chinese food on this weekend, but it was a utter disastrous food. The quality of food has really gone down. Chef really needs to be thought what Chinese cuisine is. I remember enjoying Thier food in the past but this time it was horrible. The recommendation by the server was just bad, the ginger rice... More

Frankly I am quite surprised as to why I never reviewed The Golden Oryx earlier. My relationship with the restaurant dates back to the early 80's and for me its like going back to the warmth of a dear old friend. Truth be told I have never had a bad meal there!! And I have a few favourites which occasionally... More

We went as a group of around 12 for a farewell party and they just had the right table and the space where you are not bothered by others and you don't bother Rest who are there. Food was perfect as in my previous visits and the dessert (Fried ice cream) just was the icing on the cake. The staff... More

We were a group of 7-8 people, thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks here. Fish in black pepper sauce, Schezwan hot prawns are recommended. Great for business or family outings. Large tables for big groups are available. Service was quick and outstanding.

Golden Oryx has earned the loyalty of our family for over 30 yrs. The food is excellent; my favorite being Hong Kong chicken with cashew nuts, Pepper fry beef, all their noodle varieties n rice - the portions are generous and the service quick and efficient. Oh yes, they also make the best fried ice cream in town and serve... More

I had a team dinner here. I have been to many Chinese and pan Asian restaurants but sadly this place didn't quite meet my expectations.

Tucked away in a relatively quiet location on Rex Road, lovely ambience, decent Chinese meal with large servings and good service. Although the quality was good, it is perhaps over-hyped. Perhaps more suited to Corporate and Group get-togethers than family meals
