Despite only 1 other table occupied it took ages for our order to be taken, after waiting over 30 mins still no starters so paid for drinks & left. Obviously more interested in the take away side of the business. Went up the road to the Lucky House takeaway and had delicious meal within 10 mins.

Second visit as food is always freshly cooked for you. Nice portion sizes, had beef chow mien and chicken chow mien. Was defiantly well worth the wait. Defiantly recommend it.

Had a takeaway from here with my parents. I had the mushroom fried rice and chicken with pickled ginger and pineapple. I loved my meal very much indeed; a heck of a lot better than the Chinese in Beaminster. My mum did comment that her plain rice was a bit overcooked and sticky but still nice nonetheless. The reason I'm... More

Quite a few people in Lyme had recommended this restaurant and we certainly were not disappointed. The food was excellent, service very good. Had the biggest, meatiest ribs ever!

Visited the Golden House Chinese Restaurant in August 2016. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. We asked the waitress for her recommendations and were delighted by her choices. In particular, the Garlic Prawns cooked in milk was a dish I have not tried before, but I thoroughly recommend you try them when you visit.

Thought I would try. Very disappointed. Orders crispy noodles which I dident get I received very bland chicken in tasteless sauce. Lemon chicken very tough. Defiantly must of been reheated in microwave. Thrown the rest in bin! Waste of £25! Do not recommend.

Went for a meal here with my friend who came down the visit for the weekend last month and was very disappointed! A unwelcoming member of staff showed us to our table which kicked it off to a bad start the waitress took ages to come and ask us what drinks we would like. We ordered a 3 starters and... More
