“Local Favourite”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The Gold Range (or just Range) is a fabled location in Yellowknife - but not necessarily for positive reasons - but the Gold Range Bistro is a local gem that may go unnoticed or untried by visitors because of its' sketchy location. That would be too bad because "Range Street" is a place that exemplifies at least part of the character of this northern capital.
We've eaten here many times and it has always been very good. Economical specials - and there is always a lunch time Chinese special - and a great breakfast. The specials often remind me of some "home cookin'".
My travel motto is find out where the locals go, because it usually means a good meal and an extra shot of character. Well I'm a local in Yellowknife and this is where I go pretty often!

“Good Chinese Food”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

One of the tour operators suggested us to try out this restaurant and it turned out it was a good suggestion. They have some Chinese dishes which was good for us as we are from Asia. The staff was helpful and friendly. The food was yummy.

“Rated as "Best Breakfast in Yellowknife"”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

They are known for having the best breakfasts in Yellowknife. They are also known for their omelettes. I ordered 2 eggs, potatoes, toast, and 3 sausages for $9.90. This is probably average price for Yellowknife. The potatoes were dried out, as if they had been sitting under the hot lamps for a while. The best part was the sausage. Service was very quick. From the outside, it doesn't look very appealing. They also serve burgers and Chinese food. I would consider going back and trying an omelette, but have no desire to try their Western or Chinese lunches.

“A little hole in the wall, but worth checking out”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

This little hole in the wall wasn't anything special, but the breakfast was good and the locals who frequent the place made the experience that much more enjoyable! Good for your typical breakfast.
