I do not know why people rave about their food and egg rolls. The egg rolls are not that spectacular. I have eaten much better ones and the best in the world were in Maniwaki, Québec Sun Ning Restaurant when Frank Wong was the owner. Long gone are those egg rolls now. ALSO this place is ridiculous with their prices.... More

Given all the hype about the egg rolls at Golden Palace, we decided to give them a try. We had not been to the Golden Palace in many, many years. We ordered a dozen egg rolls to take out. We picked them up at 1 pm on a Friday and the place was packed for lunch. The decor had not... More

I lived in Ottawa from 1961 to 1989. GP eggrolls were legendary all those years. Now I live in Northeastern Ontario. Every trip back to Ottawa involves a field trip to GP to pick up at least a dozen egg rolls, to take home. If he's been really nice while I've been away, I may even share them with husband.... More

Firstly our server was fantastic and the food was average. The atmosphere was ruined by the manager who seated us and to whom we paid the bills. He was wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey. He never smiled. He never spoke. Never thanked any of us our even acknowledged us when we paid with the debit card. None of us... More

The egg rolls were superb, the Golden Palace fried rice was very good but the lemon chicken was poor - too much skin and batter.

You can't beat the egg rolls from this place. They are the open ended ones and they are jammed packed with goodness. That's not all that they have that's great. My husband always gets their Garlic Chicken Balls and we both love their Mushroom Fried Rice. There's always too much left over but we won't let it go to waste.... More

Our order was wrong - missing a soup and 5 egg rolls (7 instead of 12???). General Tao's chicken was seriously over cooked. Fried rice order was beef intead of the ordered chicken. Snow peas were super mushy. When we called and complained about the order we were told that we were over charged by $11. Egg rolls really weren't... More

Had the famous egg rolls to start. They were fresh, hot, tasty and satisfying. Then had the general Tao golden palace style. Real big chunks of lightly breaded crispy chicken tossed is a sweet and hot/spicy sauce. Served separately with a bowl of steamed white rice... fantastic. Service Was fast even on a busy night. The staff is all Asian.... More

Every once in a while, I travel to the Golden Palace Restaurant to savour some of their egg rolls. They pretend to be the best in Ottawa and I would believe they are. These rolls are absolutely excellent. Home made, they don't taste the same as in other restaurants. I often go there at noon to have a wonton soup... More
