After a busy day traveling we decided to try Chinese food in Golden. The restaurant is very plain but the food is EXCELLENT ! We each enjoyed a different combo plate and was surprised by the tasty food that was not greasy or overcooked. The young fellow waiting was pleasant and most accommodating. Try this place if you are needing... More

We went because the were across the road from our campground and we were dying for good chinese. The spot was empty (not usual a good sign) although tons of people came in for Pick up orders which made us feel better. The food came fast but the staff were quiet and not too attentive given we were the only... More

Ate here with a party of 8. We were the only table in the restaurant, with a few people showing up for pick up. Service was poor, and our tip reflected that. Restaurant was not very clean. Carpet was dirty, tile floors in washrooms were dirty as well. It's very dated. Random tv and audio equipment sitting on a table... More

The food was bland. Noodle was hard and dry. The service was fast. It is located outside of town center. Meal doesn't come with rice. Steam rice is extra.

Good food, decent portions, service super fast as long as you are not there at the same time as a couple of tour buses. They cater to them with special meals

When I pulled into the parking lot a bus load of Chinese tourists was just leaving and they all seemed happy. That to me was a good sign. I found our later that the tour company phones ahead and the meals are prepared ahead for them. I was surprised to see only 2 servers but they explained the procedure with... More

After some of the negative comments posted here we decided to take a chance and go and find out for ourselves, and we're glad we did. The restaurant was impeccably clean, the service was prompt and friendly and the food was excellent. Prices were reasonable (about $12.95 per dish and combination plates were also available at a reasonable price. We'll... More

Surprisingly good Chinese restaurant in this small town. Quite authentic! Too bad they don't have wi-fi available for customers.

That this area is not known for its Asian food is pretty safe to say. Which is what makes this place such a nice surprise. It's a little expensive, portions aren't huge, but the foods pretty good. We had the black pepper chicken, Cantonese chow mein, almond chicken (no sauce which I thought was weird, and too bad ) beef... More

we have had take outs here a few times, some good ….some bad. Same with the service or more specifically wait time. If you see a tour bus in the parking lot….go some where else. The food isn't bad though and its handy for us
