The Golden Inn Restaurant, an absolutely iconic Chinese restaurant in Calgary, is closing for good at the end of this month.
Having first opened in 1977, this spot for authentic Chinese dishes is closing after 45 years in service. The last day of operations will be Saturday, August 27.
The restaurant in Calgary’s Chinatown recently shared the sudden news in an Instagram post.
“To our wonderful and loyal customers,” started the caption. “After 45 incredible years of serving you authentic Chinese cuisine made with passion and love, we have come to the difficult decision to close our doors.”
“We are so grateful for all of your support over the years and we will miss you – many of you have become like family to us.”
We will miss the massive menu of Chinese dishes, especially the famous salt and pepper squid that is well known as one of the best in the city.
