I’ve heard a lot of great things about this Chinese restaurant, one of which is that this place is so good that it’s worth its high price point. I heard from a friend a long time along that his cousin got married here and the food was amazing and it was well worth the bills to eat here. Thus, I had very high expectations of this restaurant.
When I walked into Golden Court Abalone Restaurant, I saw nothing spectacular. It was just a Chinese restaurant to me where all of the tablecloths were bright yellow in colour. Perhaps this has to do with the “golden” aspect of the restaurant name. My family and I picked dim sum to eat from the dim sum order sheet. Considering it’s such a highly renown restaurant, I also expected the service to be very professional and attentive. The service was neither. It was quite disappointed. One very good thing that I loved about the restaurant was that they offered free wifi. 😀
Here’s a roster of all the food we ordered. Everything tasted average and was nothing out of the ordinary. The only dim sum I really can comment on were the shrimp dumplings where the skin of the dumpling was extremely soft and chewy. It was really well made!
I’ve yet to see what is the type about this restaurant. Perhaps at night when they serve dinner and hold wedding banquets, the food and atmosphere are entirely different. Who knows. I’ll have to dine here again for dinner to find out. 🙂
