Fantastic Chinese cuisine

One of my favorite restaurants. All freshly prepared. You may expect regular strip mall Chinese food. Not here. This is Chinese cuisine as it is supposed to be.

Recently I reviewed a Chinese Restaurant in Columbus GA. It would be a huge mistake to overlook Golden Sun. Linda and Jackie have poured there heart into their restaurant. They provide a pleasant atmosphere allowing you to relax and enjoy their delicious plates. I could live on the sizzling rice soup and egg foo young; however, they have a nice... More

Have been here several times and the food is always good and the service is great. Have tried over 10 dishes and liked all of them, the hot and sour soup is good, the only thing I would change is the egg rolls, could be larger and better.

Stopped in for a take out dinner while staying in a local hotel. Service was quick and food was extremely OK. About $12 for a meal. No complaints. The take out serving was huge. With a refrig and microwave in the hotel room that was good for three nights. You have to like Chinese a lot to eat it for... More

What a great find! The food tastes very fresh and the rice is spot-on. The restaurant is very clean and the staff is very friendly. I had beef with mixed veggies and it was wonderful. Plenty for lunch the next day.

Food was good, service a little slow and if you differ from the menu, like a larger soup than offered, they charge you full price. Also asked for steamed rice not fried rice that was offered with meal and was charged for the steamed rice. Food was good and will eat there again, but will be more careful about what... More

I took the time to read a number of reviews for this restaurant and felt I was in good hands, what I failed to do was look at the health inspection report when I entered, as I was leaving the restaurant I noticed it, the score was 80 B, not good, personal cleanliness was an issue noted on the report...

Visited Golden Sun for the second time tonight. We tried different dishes, and the food was just as wonderful. Yes, it's in the walmart parking lot, but that will melt away once you sit down. The hot and sour soup is jam packed and super hearty, but the couple next to us had the sizzling rice soup and it was... More

Absolutely fabulous! Great food, service, and very good people. Two meals for $21.00 and it was the best Chinese I have eaten in a very long time.

My mother-in-law recently turned 90 years old, and we had a big reception for her in the afternoon. Later we asked where she would like to go for dinner, and she replied that her favorite place was "Golden Sun", so that's where we went. The official party had occurred earlier that afternoon, so our group consisted of only six. Each... More
