we had dinner c, it was amazing, there was so much food we had to take a doggy bag home! staff were very friendly and helpful. the only thing letting it down (for me) was the football on in the background.... not ideal for dining ambiance!!

On a recent business trip came across this place and have to say it was very good, the usual starters but done to a very high standard. I had the butterfly prawn and it was one of the best Chinese starters I have had. The sweet and sour chicken was next and again very well executed. Service was fast and... More

I went with friend for tea. Never having been before I was a bit apprehensive but I needn't have worried. Food was excellent and the service was very quick. I will definitely be going back again, may take my husband next time.

Being a visitor in Lerwick on a Saturday night is not the greatest experience on a cold wet Saturday night in October, and on my 70 birthday. We were told if we wanted a good meal try the Golden Coach. We found it and from the outside it looked a little dire, You could not see into the place and... More

On our 3rd night in Lerwick we decided to go for something different. This Asian restaurant has dishes for everyone, whether it be Japanese, Korean, Thai or Chinese. They even had some Malaysian dishes. The service was very quick and we were astounded by how swiftly the food came to the table.

I've been here a few times and usually I don't like it but my opinions have completely been changed. I used to think the takeaway was rubbish too but after a good sit in meal I decided to try that - my opinion on this has also changed. During a sit in meal I had naked shredded chicken which was...

A group of us went for a meal here one evening during my holiday to Shetland. Except for a wind tunnel that seemed to make half of our table quite cold our meal was really good and enjoyable. The atmosphere is nice within the restaurant and ultimately the food was really good. Probably the best Chinese food I've eaten. So... More
