Small restaurant tucked way in Windermere village. Does not look much from outside but don't let that put you off.
The food in incredible.
Good sized portions, un-fussily presented and made from fresh ingredients. Very little if any MSG in the food which means you can eat 5 courses without re-enacting the dinner scene in the movie Alien (which is how I often feel in other Chinese restaurants). The mixed combination starter is just Ace and has the nicest prawn toast this reviewer has ever tasted.
The staff are friendly and know their menu well. Overall Highly Recommended.

Live in the Lakes and not found another chinese restaurant to match this one, excellent friendly service, fantastic food, and not expensive. Like trying different places but keep edging back to this restaurant as food always guaranteed great.

...or a Chinese restaurant by what it looks like from the outside. The Golden Mountain, just a few minutes walk from the train station, looks nothing special. However, the food is really pretty good, and the service was attentive and efficient. We left booking to the last minute and had to eat at 5pm. By the time we left it was getting busy, with people eating in and a constant stream of takeaway orders.

Definitely in a class above your normal Chinese restaurant, and at just over £30 for two courses and a glass of wine for two people, good value too.

This is a very busy Chinese takeaway and restaurant- we were lucky to get a table without pre-booking. Food enjoyable, with courteous service.
(We stayed in the local area for two days and found it geared mainly to the passing tourist market...ie. pretty expensive for what was on offer and mediocre menus, so it was pleasing to find a good Chinese.)

My partner and myself had a day away at Windermere, and we are so glad we found this place on our way back to the Train Station.
It does not look much from the outside but believe me the food was fantastic.
There are not too many tables within the restaurant and it is quite small but then this makes sure that the service is tip top. They received a lot of phone calls for bookings but had to turn them down due to how busy they were, but I suppose that just goes to show how popular they are. Lots of customers turning up for takeaways also.
The front of house and waitress were very welcoming and attentive.
The drinks were nicely priced and so was the food.
The food in my opinion has got to be one of the best Chinese meals I have eaten, big portions and plenty of taste.
Definitely worth a visit if your out and about in Windermere.
Will certainly be eating there again.
