I hesitate writing this review. We had the dinner for 4 and the only thing that was excellent was the spring roll. All 4 of us agree with the following. The rice was gooie, the deep fried prawns were soggy/under cooked. the chow mein was just not up to par. The sweet and sour pork was acceptable. All our friends... More

Keep trying other restaurants but always come back to the well priced lunch buffet at The Golden carriage. We have come here for years to have their excellent lunch, from miso soup to dessert, we have no complaints. Friendly, helpful service.

As a fellow former regular at the Bamboo Garden said to me - the food at Golden Carriage was "acceptable". The buffet had a limited offering & was OK and the waitress was very nice & promptly picked up our plates & filled my water glass but the food wasn't good enough to want to go back.

I made an order to pick up. The Chinese beef and broccoli was over cooked and bland. When I called to complain, all I received was a bunch of excuses. If I had been eating at the restaurant and I received this food, I would have send it back. I wanted my money back but apparently that is not happening.... More

It has been a while since I left this city but came back and attended my favourite Chinese Restaurant. The food was fresh (buffet) and was replenished as it was being taken. Friendly service and moderate decor. I had taken out once this year, and was comparable to dine in.

I made an order to pick up. The sweet and sour pork was dry and inedible. The Chinese beef and greens had no greens, only the white part of the bok choy and was incredibly bland. When I called to complain, all I received was a bunch of excuses. If I had been eating at the restaurant and I received... More

Food was dry and over cooked. When we mentioned this it was recommended that we ask for sauce next time we came in. Obviously it is popular due to cheap buffet, which we did not eat. Service was poor, won't go back!

This was our second visit to the Golden Carriage, we ordered from the menu and not tried the buffet, the restaurant was busy for a Monday lunch, a good sign! Our two dishes arrived quickly and good helpings, best of all the plates were hot, a lot of restaurants don't provide hot plates sadly.

It's a no miss when we are in Courtenay. The food is very tasty and fresh. A small but good choice buffet. Nice comfortable setting. A small restaurant with a good atmosphere. Can't beat the price, too. Especially for seniors. Right downtown, so parking is busy. The dry ribs are fantastic. Try it if you like 'Western' Chinese food.

The golden Carriage is an old Courtenay favourite. The food is always fresh and hot. Standard Chinese restaurant decor, comfy and familiar. We use it a lot for take-out when we're too lazy to cook or go out. Delivery too.
