Very sad to report the closure of the Golden Swallow which was an outstanding Chinese restaurant. Went last night and the premises were locked and barred; there was a bailiff's notice on the door which I guess is as permanent as it gets. Great shame

This is a very pleasant Chinese Restaurant. the main room can be screened off into a series of small areas for private functions. It is a family concern with a wide range of Chinese regional dishes. The only draw back is that it is up two flights of stairs.

Best Chinese food we have ever had. Cooked to order so a little wait between courses which was good. Excellent service too. Will definitely visit again soon.

Food was horrific. Tasteless food and the bill came to more than I expected. Total waste of money. Wouldn't be going back.

The Golden Swallow serves the best Chinese food in the area, but many people still don't know it's even there! We have been regular patrons of this restaurant for years and worry it's not as busy as it should be given how great the food is. I think the owner should advertise the place better. The important thing is the... More
