Advice for visitors

Come to Gold Restaurant ready for a feast! With a menu of 14 dishes, there is a lot to taste and experience. As an authentic restaurant, it’s natural that some of the food will be new to guests. Gold recommends diners give everything a taste. Although food is a major part of the experience, it is secondary to the atmosphere and entertainment. Get involved in the show by learning how to play the djembe (an African drum) during the open session that’s held at the start of the evening. Before you know it, you’ll be drumming along with the band!
