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

The food is excellent. Made to the way we like it. The duck is cooked very well. Hot and spicy chicken is our favourite. We always takeout our food but the restaurant is clean and great place to eat, with a great environment. Hope this helps people who love Chinese food.

Hubby and I recently enjoyed the lunch special at The Golden Sun. As this good sized, well appointed restaurant is tucked away in a Walmart Plaza, I would not have given it a second glance, but fellow TA reviewers were so positive that we gave it a chance. The dining room was almost empty, so we got a booth immediately.... More

Best Chinese food in Athens. This is not a buffet which in my opinion has been the demise of some great Chinese restaurants. Friendly wait staff.

We ate lunch here as it was right near the WalMart. This is not a buffet but a sit down Chinese restaurant and nice enough for a casual date. If they added some chinese lantern lighting and dimmed the lights it would make for a nice date atmosphere. Lunch specials are $5.99 to $6.99 and include choice of soup, egg... More
