We had a another great lunch at the Golden Carriage, it was busy, but we didn't have to wait very long for our food to come, most people have the smorgasbord, but we always order from the menu, the place isn't fancy but we thought that the servings were larger than previous visits.

Took friends from Regina who had asked for Chinese food. The Golden Carriage is our go to place for their buffet the food was hot and trays filled constantly. They offer a seniors rate which is always nice.

I hesitate writing this review. We had the dinner for 4 and the only thing that was excellent was the spring roll. All 4 of us agree with the following. The rice was gooie, the deep fried prawns were soggy/under cooked. the chow mein was just not up to par. The sweet and sour pork was acceptable. All our friends... More

Keep trying other restaurants but always come back to the well priced lunch buffet at The Golden carriage. We have come here for years to have their excellent lunch, from miso soup to dessert, we have no complaints. Friendly, helpful service.

As a fellow former regular at the Bamboo Garden said to me - the food at Golden Carriage was "acceptable". The buffet had a limited offering & was OK and the waitress was very nice & promptly picked up our plates & filled my water glass but the food wasn't good enough to want to go back.

I made an order to pick up. The Chinese beef and broccoli was over cooked and bland. When I called to complain, all I received was a bunch of excuses. If I had been eating at the restaurant and I received this food, I would have send it back. I wanted my money back but apparently that is not happening.... More

It has been a while since I left this city but came back and attended my favourite Chinese Restaurant. The food was fresh (buffet) and was replenished as it was being taken. Friendly service and moderate decor. I had taken out once this year, and was comparable to dine in.

I made an order to pick up. The sweet and sour pork was dry and inedible. The Chinese beef and greens had no greens, only the white part of the bok choy and was incredibly bland.

Food was dry and over cooked. When we mentioned this it was recommended that we ask for sauce next time we came in. Obviously it is popular due to cheap buffet, which we did not eat. Service was poor, won't go back!

This was our second visit to the Golden Carriage, we ordered from the menu and not tried the buffet, the restaurant was busy for a Monday lunch, a good sign! Our two dishes arrived quickly and good helpings, best of all the plates were hot, a lot of restaurants don't provide hot plates sadly.
