Have ordered twice from here, I have tried a few other similar restaurants in south london but this one is the best. Food was delicious and not greasy or oily, good delivery.

We looked up this place as we were in the area and needed to kill an hour so thought let's try it as Chinese is our favourite dish. Pretty impressed,clean place, staff lovely and food good too. And really not expensive for the quality. Will definitely go back or order take away.

Ordered off the just eat website as it had 5 stars. We ordered chicken chop suey, not the best dish, hardly any bean sprouts and quite tasteless. Bbq spare ribs, far too salty and lastly, sweet and sour prawn balls, the balls were ok but the sweet and sour sauce tasted like a really sweet strawberry sauce you would put... More

Décor is minimal. You are basically looked at from outside as there are no lace curtains just clear glass panes. Food is served quickly and they do quite a busy take away trade. Menu selections slightly irritating - eg Singapore fried rice, rather than vermicelli noodles, Roast Duck and Fried Rice rather than boiled. Special mixed curry was light on... More

i wanted to try a new Chinese takeaway, what a mistake ordering from here. It took quite a while to even put my order in as the lady spoke very little English and for some reason couldn't understand my address! It was very over priced for the greasy not very tasty meal we received. Won't be ordering from here again!

We have lived in Sydenham for over 30 years and when we have a Chinese takeaway we always go to Golden City. We had a takeaway last Friday and the food was very well cooked and we did not have to wait too long for delivery and when it arrived it was piping hot. The food was very tasty with... More

They send you the wrong meals if you order a take away. It arrives spilled the order is wrong and has hair in it! And then they tell you not to come back to them when you complain and ask for a change. Never ever going back

I used to enjoy coming here as the food was really nice. However, it has been refurbished and it looks way too bright and you can see diners as you walk down the street. I have wanted to go in but didn't go in as I didn't want the whole world watching me as I eat. Sorry won't be going... More
