My wife and I came to the Golden Ox for our wedding anniversary. We loved two things about the night: (1) the personal service. The staff (including the owners) spent time talking with us. We felt so welcome. It would have been good if each staff member could have said their name too. (2) the food was to die for.... More

Thanks you to the Ox for reintroducing me to Lamb. This would have to be the most succulent serving of Lamb I have ever had. It's not overstating it to say I've tried Lamb in many different places throughout the world and I'd say the OX serves the best Lamb in world. Also try the 5 spice calamari, it melts... More

We booked for dinner for our wedding anniversary. We weren't impressed by the manager in viewing for staff a couple of tables away, the service was average, a bit rough. Our mains weren't that good either clam shells that nearly broke my tooth, so after that we decided to leave and definitely won't be returning. It's certainly not the golden... More

It has been quite some time since my wife and I had gone to The Golden Ox. We went for the early bird dinner on Friday night and were not disappointed. While everything was beautifully cooked and the staff were excellent as usual, the highlight of the meal for me was the five spice calamari. Perfectly cooked and the light... More

Nice pianist night we went. Main was too, too long coming but they did apologise and give us a free glass of bubbly as it was our wedding anniversary. Always excellent quality food.

We were not sure what to expect after reading the recent mix of one star and 5 star reviews. The service started out slow and we had to ask for water. But things picked up. Nick the owner was on hand to make everyone feel welcome and the lovely lady on the grand piano knew every classic we requested -... More
