The Best Quality since 2009
Golden Carriage is a Chinese Restaurant located in the heart of Downtown Courtenay on 5th St. Within 7 years of operation, we have adapted to the needs of the local community by listening to their feedback and ensuring our food is non-oily and low in sodium. We commit to using the freshest ingredients and forbid the use of MSG within our dishes. We'll continue to improve our quality of food by offering gluten free options and heed the ever changing needs of the community that we are proud to serve and be a part of.
Yes, please give us an hour notice before reserving a table. To reserve, call 250-338-9333
For larger parties of 8 – 46. For parties larger than 10-15 people, we would like at least 2 weeks notice. Please call/email us to inquire for availability.
We unfortunately do not at this time.
I'm sorry! If your allergy is severe we cannot guarantee that the food has not been contaminated with peanuts. Please inform the server of any allergies.
Yes, our menu items can easily be adjusted to be meat free like the Golden Carriage Vegetarian Dish. There is very little dairy or eggs on the menu.
Actually this is a hard one for us because soy sauce is fermented with wheat and it is a primary ingredient in most of the menu. That being said if you are okay in having a limited choice we can leave out the soy sauce and there is definitely some delicious items you can enjoy without wheat. Your server will be more than willing to show you gluten-free alternatives on the menu.
There is an abundance of parking with a parking lot beside our restaurant and plenty of street parking.
At this time, we do not.
What did our guests say?
We had food from the buffet - all very tasty with generally healthier (less greasy) tastes than you might get atbother Chinese restaurants. Staff very friendly and helpful. Well priced, too.
The restaurant itself is quite small and modest, and could perhaps stand a little update tweak, but the food makes up for it!
"Very good fresh buffet, tasty dishes"
Best place for Chinese food that I have found in Courtenay, very reasonable too and lots of choices on the buffet.
A favorite when I am in Courtenay. I have been going here for 10 years and each time service and food is good! Lunch buffet is nice.
“Golden Carriage Restaurant”
Their buffet has a good selection. It is not a huge restaurant and the same staff are always courteous. Lots of street parking.
"Ordered take out"
Ordered the family of 4 dinner (chicken chow mien, beef chop suey, mushroom rice, sweet & sour pork, deep fried prawns (shrimp) with S&S, and 4 egg tolls). Take out order & they have additional 10% off price.
Quality is better than the quick Chinese food from elsewhere. Would order from there again as it was very good. Our youngest said we should order 100 of the shrimp! (She only ate 3, of course!)
War Wonton was spot on - Singapore curry vermicelli spices were just nice & a good portion.
We ordered of the menu, but there was also a buffet with lots of fresh veggies.
Lunch buffet is local favorite.
