I stopped by with intent to eat in, but quickly decided to order take-out. Tables are lined along the walls on both sides of the restaurant with a large middle section for access to the counter; virtually no ambiance.

Been going here for years and yes, every once in a while somethings are not right, however 95% of the time the food is outstanding, quick and reliable. Central location in town and pleasant staff. We use it primarily as a take out but they do have several booths.

We gave this place 3 tries last year and food was old and over done. The take out was excellent several years ago when a better staff was in place. We will not return or recommend.

I've been going to Golden Garden for as long as I can remember. Everything on the menu is excellent. The fried appetizers are crispy, the soups are flavorful and packed full of ingredients, and the entrees are loaded with meat and perfectly sauced. My favorite, though, are the boneless spare ribs. I have eaten a lot of Chinese food over... More
