Placing phone order the person on phone was snotty & pushy. Demanded I D to use a Visa card. Placed my order 40 minutes before pick up, was over 10 min late after pick up time. Online site said food would be ready in 15 minutes, that's a joke, owner (manager) refused to listen to anything I had to say... More

Golden Chow Mein reminds me a lot of the chow mein places my parents and grandparents would go to when we went out for "Chinese Food", which was pretty exotic to Scandanavian midwesterners in the 1960s-1970s. The menu is your standard chow mein in several varieties, along with a few Cantonese dishes like sweet and sour chicken and beef with... More

Ordered the Kung Pao Chicken and Chicken Fried Rice to go while heading out the door for home. Food was ready and waiting hot and fresh when I walked in the door and the boss lady made quick work of the checkout process. Plenty of seating if you'd like to stay for dine in also.

My family always went here for chow mein for years , but for the past couple of years we have tried other places with good and bad results, because Golden was starting to lessen their quality. Tonight we tried Golden again, (close to home). SO, chow mein - we ordered plain which always has the pork (ie not meatless just... More

You know how some restaurants are hit and miss? That doesn't happen at Golden. The food is consistently excellent. It is Cantonese, which is the old-fashioned Chinese restaurant you remember from your childhood. Basic interior, but clean, sometimes entertaining staff, always friendly and efficient. Take out available. Oh, and the prices are really low considering thee quality of the food.

To enjoy this restaurant you need to have a specific type of Chinese cooking in mind - i.e., the type that in the -50s and -60s comprised 90+% of American Chinese restaurants. The food is very plain, the prices reasonable, the service is check and friendly. I wouldn't drive a long drive a long way to eat here, but then... More

Do you like to keep a roster of hole-in-the-wall restaurants in your line-up? If yes, please add this to your list under Chinese. Its fantastic. The food is straight forward, and their combos have been perfected- so you will leave very happy. In fact, the food is so blue-collar good that you'll be positioning yourself for success- a return trip... More
