Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fell in love with this place. The ordering system is clear and helpful, the service is attentive, the whole place is super clean and the value is amazing. Food is the stuff of dreams; everything is just that little bit fresher, that little bit tastier...than everywhere else. Like their satay sauce; rather than just the bland peanut butter stuff you get everywhere else this is beautifully smooth with just the right amount of heat to it. And everything is like that, just taking everything up to the next level. Can’t wait to go back.More

Was passing and thought we’d see if a table was available and straight away was made to feel welcome. Staff are fantastic and the food was delicious. Highly recommend trying the Gold Coast.

We have passed Gold Coast over the years and always fancied trying it out. Last night my wife and I finally booked a table which was the last one and were so happy that we did. The staff were friendly, the food was brought out...quick and they made us feel very welcome. The food was very well presented it was hot, there was plenty and it tasted amazing!! I would highly recommend eating at Gold Coast and we will definitely be travelling up from Romford with family more often! Thanks to everyone at Gold Coast for a lovely welcome and evening.More

Been here loads but I’m afraid in my opinion it’s gone downhill. I found the food to all be of very poor quality, covered in sweet sauces not very hot and certainly not tasty. The meats were cheap, boiled, tasteless and chewy. Favour was minimal....The price has gone up and this meal is no way value for money for what you get. The restaurant was very cold. The staff were efficient and friendly and are always nice but I’m afraid I didn’t enjoy the experience at all and on this basis I don’t think we will be visiting againMore
