Cheap Local Buffet Feb 04, 2017
Golden Shan is a no-nonsense, basic place for locals to load up on good food for K3000 ($3.23). It’s a simple all you can eat buffet. It looks like an airplane hangar with large wooden tables and plastic chairs. You first go to the plate station to get a clean plate and then the food area. The staff speak limited English, but will advise between mild and hot dishes to tourists. The choices vary from fish, chicken, beef and vegetarian dishes. You take that and your drinks (cold beers!) to your table with the utensils they provide with the plate. Napkin dispensers are on the tables.

I arrived late and a lot of the food had been devoured by hoards of local people. I recommend you arrive early and eat when it is busy actually. You will receive fast service and no problems with choice.

Golden Shan is a basic and kind of ramshackle place, but it’s clean and hygienic. I watched them sterilising the dishes and utensils. The staff observe excellent food hygiene. Yes, it’s a bit run down, but the food is tasty, varies and cheap. And the beers? Ice cold and economic. If you want an authentic local food hall, this is it. If you need it to be a little more touristy and modern, try this nearby place:
