I am broken hearted to say the least. This was always one of our favourite meals.

Glad we found this place...it is in the middle of tsilivi and easy to walk past, but we stopped and then returned a couple of times. Fantastic food and wonderful friendly service from Arlene and her family. Good luck with the business you deserve the best.

We have just come back from Tsiivi and went looking for Fat Olives we were staying at the Planos end but could not find it. We are going again later in the year, will try again any tips please.

Like many of the other comments, we also eat here twice, it doesnt get very full so you wonder about the food but the food was excellent. A little bit more pricy than eating Greek but it makes a nice change. the service was good and the staff very friendly.  We had avariety of dishes, including the singapre chow mein and the singapiore fried rice. All were lovely. I would definately eat here again. They also do Thai food although we did not try any we spoke to a couple who had chosen from the Thai menu and they were really enjoying it.   May 2006

Once again we visited this delight of a restaurant. They have taken on a new chef this season and the food was delicious.

As in previous reports you are not rushed which makes it a nice relaxing atmosphere. A perfect way to relax and enjoy delicious food.

You will not be disappointed, yes it might be a bit more expensive than some of the normal restaurants but it is so worth it.

We ate here twice during 2 weeks and were not disappointed. Good to try when you want a change from eating greek. Service was top notch - lovely food - light and not too filling as most english chinese food can be. The caramel pork is amazing! More expensive than eating greek because you are obviously tempted to eat more dishes - but definitely worth a visit!

We ate here twice on our holiday and both times the food was lovely. We ate the spare ribs which were wonderful and the satay chicken which was full of flavour. One night we shared a mixed starter for one person, but it was certainly enough for two to share. We also had the singapore rice and noodles and ther were lovley. This was one of the best chinese restaurant that i have ever been to all the food was full of flavour. And the service was wonderful, they let you take your time, you dont feel as if they are just after your money and want you out for the next person, they really made us feel welcome. This was one of the friendliest restaurants that we went to.

One of the nights it was a Greeks birthday and he shared his cake with us. Which we though was really nice. Even though we were alrealy full from our meal, but it was and icecream cake and it was lovley.

If you like good Chinese food then this is the place to go.. the staff were all extremely pleasant and the service was excellent.  We tried the Teriyaki Beef, BBQ spare ribs and the satay chicken...we enjoyed it so much we went again and had platters for one.....Not for the small appetite!!!!! Lovely atmosphere and would definitely return

When you need a break from Greek Food, this is Chineese/Thai Food at its best. 

 
Arlene and her family are attentive without being obtusive and you can hurry or linger as suits you and your holiday mood.
 
My favourite was the Spring Rolls followed by Duck with pancakes, my husband's choice was the "Golden Lion Spare Ribs" and the Sweet and Sour Chicken.

 

 

Arlene and Family - thank you so much for all the help you gave Terry while I was in Zante Hospital.  For visiting me in hospital and helping me with translating my pains to the nurses and swapping information with the other patients.  For giving Terry lifts to the hospital, so he could visit me and for driving us back to the accommodation when I was released also for reorganising the tables and chairs so I could eat there, while in the hired wheelchair.

 
I don't know how to express my gratitude apart from saying THANK YOU and that we will return to Tsilivi when I am well enough.

Very good standard of food from this restaurant. We ate there a couple of times and the standard of service was fantastic. The presentaion of food was spectacular. The owner was a cheery and friendly person who cared about you and did not rush you to eat up and move on. Time was never an issue.
If you like Chinese/Thai food you will love the Golden Lion. We are in the process of booking our holiday to Tsilivi for next year and we will definately be going back to eat here.
