A pleasant place with friendly staff. Mainly local cuisine on the menu and the quality is fine. Not cheap, but I guess similar prices to most places. A safe bet for an evening meal.

We had lunch at Golden Taste, very good food despite a lukewarm welcome. We had the lambi, ordered 2 servings for 4 and that was good. Rum punch was delicious, lots of local people eating there, and taking meals out. We would definitely recommend it.

We came here 2 nights out of 3. Fantastic food. Very fresh. My husband eats meat and fish but as a veggie I still had plenty of choice and the veg was great. Highly recommend for excellent value and flavour.
