The one thing about this place that is good is the food. We had the Sichuan beef, the ginger beef and some kind of fried vegetable noodles (Chow mein), all extremely well prepared and tasty. Haven't had this authentic chinese food since I was in China. It was also the cheapest dinner we've had in Golden this week (main course... More

I've never had better ginger beef. Chow mein and fried rice excellent too. No atmosphere but very clean. Large screen TV is unfortunate. Best to take out.

The missus and I had a hankering for Chinese food for lunch. The business has moved to a new location on the strip. The venue is pretty sparsely decorated right now. I hope they work on this aspect. The food is average Chinese Canadian fare. My sweet and sour pork was above average. The servers are sweet and a little... More

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
