August 2009 — "New to Victoria, we didn't know where to go for Chinese food so we headed to Chinatown and asked someone working in a store. He recommended we walk a block and a half out of Chinatown to Golden City. We were glad we did. It is out of the way and easy to miss if you weren't looking for it. A large, empty restaurant, we were promptly greeted and seated. Our server was very gracious and helpful. My friend asked what was fresh today and if there were any specials. We went with his suggestions and didn't even look at the menu. We enjoyed green beans with black bean sauce (the best beans I've had in my life), rockcod with fried tofu (I loved the sauce and the dish was good, but expensive and not sure I would order it again), and scallops and eggplant (I would highly recommend this. It came as a hot pot). For those three dishes and rice and tea, the bill came to $62. Not cheap, but seafood was higher in price. We will go back and try their dim sum. The restaurant decor reminded me of a banquet hall as it was large and nicely decorated with muted colours. I think they must do most of their business through banquets as the restaurant was completely dead. Thee were only two other tables while we were there. The washroom was one of the cleanest public washrooms I have ever seen. That's a good sign too!"

"Great Authentic Chinese Food"

May 2009 — "Located just up the street from the main Chinatown, Golden City is a great place to enjoy some authentic Chinese cuisine. For dinner, we really enjoy their Sesame Chicken and the Yang Chow fried rice is beautifully prepared. For dim sum (Chinese tapas), they have a fresh congee made to order. This nice rice soup dish is only available on weekends. As for other dim sum favorites, you'll find the "ha gow" shrimp dumpling and the "siu mai" pork and shrimp dumplings with roe. Everything is freshly prepared and clearly not the frozen dim sum that you can buy in the grocery stores. The atmosphere is nice and the service is friendly. Having lived in various parts of Asia, we are quite picky about Chinese food and Golden City lives up to expectations."
