Just brought egg rolls out to family in BC, some they look forward when anyone visits from Ottawa. Egg rolls and Lemon Chicken, two dishes worth their weight in gold. Price is not cheap, but worth every penny! Will be back many times, that's for sure!

I had friends from Toronto for a visit and I took them out for dinner at the Golden Palace. These friends love their chinese food and go to the best chinese restaurants in Toronto so I was a little concerned . We started off with the egg rolls and they raved about them. We ordered the chow mein, sweet and sour butterfly shrimps and their special fried rice, They raved avout our meal saying it was the best they ever had. Before they left for Toronto ourfriends took 2 dozen egg rolls with them.

Needless to say I was so pleased with our visit to Golden Palace and, remember this place has great egg rolls but the rest of the menu is an adventure in great tasting chinese food!

We had a great special occasion supper with 14 friends last night. Our gang thinks the eggrolls are great. Everyone was thrilled with the Lemon Chicken and Butterfly Shrimp, and other dishes. My favourite was the Ginger Chicken Balls. The service was very competent considering the number at our table. We tried to make it easy for the kitchen and server by all having the same soup. Also we ordered 2 each of 7 dishes ... plenty leftover to take home. We'd go again.

Much has been said about this "golden" place but sadly it's all hype and hyperbole and expensive for nothing, to add insult to people's intelligence. For example, they boast about having the best egg rolls anywhere - don't believe the hype - Lucky Dragon has better egg rolls and doesn't charge $1.80 for an egg roll. Why so expensive? And from a quality point of view, why full of onions? A great egg roll should have a blend of the finest quality ingredients, not leftover stuff covered in sauce.

I'm sorry to say all that but those who care should be aware - this is not as "golden" a place as it once was - not even close.

Another sore point point is accessibility - there is none, so if you have mobility issues, forget it. And sadly, no one came to help us as we struggled up the stairs. We wanted to try it but not a single person who was standing around gossiping made a move to help us.

Poor quality - expensive - no accessibility - not "golden" - it has rusted!!

We found that the eggrolls had a very hard crust as if they were recooked from the day before and had no taste. One eggroll within the order was very soft and had an linseed oil taste. The garlic spareribs were very tender but the garlic sauce was too sweet. Another surprise was that the containers were PLASTIC, (smelt like melted plastic) not the nice cardboard ones they had in the past. We were very disappointed for in the past the food and presentation was consistently great. What do you think, 8 eggrolls, 1 order of spareribs and 1 order of chicken balls should cost? We paid $48.00. You decide.
