Meet the owner

The Golden Inn Restaurant is a Calgary Chinatown landmark, having been owned by the Lau family for nearly 40 years. The flood of 2013 could have ended it, but the family’s history and pride were too great to let it fade away. A fully flooded basement shut the restaurant down for 10 weeks, and without electricity, all the food stocked up for that summer’s Stampede-time clientele spoiled. The restaurant’s future looked bleak. All this happened as founders John and Kam Lau were considering selling the business and retiring.

“It’s been a true family restaurant,” says their son Raymond Lau. “My dad has been cooking in the kitchen since he opened it in 1977. All of our family members worked here at one time.” Raymond, a successful Internet marketer, along with his brothers Kelvin, the head chef for the National Beer Hall, and Vincent, a graphic designer, decided to invest in the family business. They re-opened with the idea that they could eventually pass it on to their own children.

Ginger beef: A Chinese food favourite in Calgary

This landmark Chinatown restaurant with the yellow-and-red awning keeps late hours that make it a favourite after-dark dining spot among night owls. The Golden Inn always seems to exude a warm, sociable glow, and the food at this family-run place is always spot on. Recently refurbished, its menu features a raft of Cantonese dishes from hot and sour soup and singing chicken to Shanghai noodles and steamed lobster. And, of course, the restaurant serves a killer classic ginger-fried beef. Arrive hungry.
