Came here Saturday night 3/12/16 as we couldn't make our minds up of what to eat but we where glad we came as the food was excellent especially the king prawns in a ginger and pineapple sauce and the rice was nice and fluffy

i have been going to Keswick for many years, and it is only on my last visit that I had a meal in the Golden Hills. How I've missed out, I ended up eating there three times last week !! In my opinion it is the best Chinese/Asian restaurant in the town. The food is well seasoned and very nice.... More

After reading some of the reviews on here I just had to say we have been visiting Keswick for 12 years and this is our favourite restaurant of all. It may not have a flashy interior but service is always friendly and the food is top notch. Every single time. Contrary to some reviews it is NOT expensive (our local... More

We popped in here for a sit down meal; nothing too fancy, good quality food, nice staff very good portions. I would say it is a bit pricey, but Keswick is a tourist town and wherever you go it is £20 at least for a bottle of wine regardless. Nothing to complain about but no different to many other Chinese... More

I tried take away aromatic crispy duck, aromatic crispy lamb and mixed veg fried rice. Each crispy dish came with 6 pancakes, cucumber, spring onion and hoisin sauce on a side. The lamb was very good, crispy and cut to pieces, so easy to prepare a roll. The duck was in one whole piece (a quarter with thigh) which means... More

One of the worst, no. THE WORST Chinese takeaway I've ever had. 5 meals ordered. One cold, one best described as "a congealed dish of soggy beef in a sauce resembling sweet wall paper paste. Two sweet and sour dishes that were far more sour, and I mean vinegary than sweet, is only half way to describe the disappointment about... More

Had a great meal here, we both had duck dishes and the duck was lovely and tender. The service was friendly and efficient, the prices maybe a little expensive but about average for Keswick.

We returned here after visiting two years ago with friends, whilst doing the Coast to Coast walk. The food was every bit as good as we remembered, with service that was efficient and friendly. Somehow our appetites were no match for the portion sizes this time. But we hadn't been hiking 15 miles either!

I can understand how they can afford to charge this price being the only Chinese takeaway in Keswick. Inside is very clean and time taken to cook meals was quick but price is far too high. Every other Chinese I've ever had has been at most half the price of this place. Wasn't the best Chinese I've had either, but... More
