I don't know if they advertise as "no MSG", but if they do, they are lying. By the time I got home I guzzled 3 huge glasses of water. Buffet is well stocked but comparable to any other buffet in our area. Nothing special.

Something happened to this restaurant. We have come here for years so at this last visit the food was bland and warm at best . The wait staff were young and inexperienced. I'm pretty sure that they are new owners. The dinner room had 3partys of 4 including us, so no excuse for a cold meal. Won't be back, Always... More

Yummy Chinese food. Excellent service - always getting your duck sauce refilled when done always asking if everything is okay, food is amazing nice and fancy when laid out.

Most places now are either take out or buffet. This place has been in business for years. The food is always fresh, hot and tasty. Had a great seafood bird nest tonight. Lobster, shrimp, scallops, crab all steamed with some vegetables. Delightful. $16.50 very reasonable priced. My wife had a similar dish with only shrimp. The dining room is inviting... More

This place is located across the street from a very popular buffet. there are new owners a few years back and the place offers the same style old school Chinese food. I'm talking the type thats not really the storefront Chinese food that some may be used to. they don't have the yellow fried rice - they do it the... More

Someone from a local business recommended this restaurant to us and we were not disappointed. Everything was hot and fresh, even though we got there after 1:00 PM on a Saturday. We both had General Tso's chicken which was delicious. The hot and sour soup is great too!

We've eaten here numerous times over the years. It has changed hands in recent years but it remains the best choice for Chinese food in the Watertown area. The atmosphere is classic for the style, I've at times felt the lighting is too bright, but it's a relaxing place with good Chinese cuisine. I can't say it's particularly distinctive or... More

We've been eating at Golden Palace for 20 years on and off. Lately mostly off, but tried again this week and were pleasantly surprised. Sesame chicken, beef with brocoli and shrimp with peapods were all good. Service was also very good. Glad to have reliable asian restaurant in town again!

This is the place to go for good food that has fresh ingredients. Don't think about going anywhere else. The only downside they don't deliver.
