Eaten here many times

The food is always good, especially the chow mein. Sometimes the service is a bit slow if they are busy, but it is still friendly service. I would recommend. matter of fact, I got to this review page while looking up their phone number so I can order some soup for a sick friend!

Everything was so delicious, every entree was as good as the next, can't wait to go back with my kids in October! Our party numbered about 12 fast service after small wait for our group size but was very worthwhile. I would have expected to pay more for the quality & size of our meal.

Entering this restaurant takes me back to the Cantonese restaurants of my Midwestern childhood. But not as tasty, The food is bland, greasy, and overcooked. The restaurant feels worn out and grubby, Fresnans love this restaurant. I cannot figure out why, except that is is very low-priced.

I took my family on a Saturday night for dinner. When we got there, it was jam packed (an indication that it has good food). We had to wait a bit to be seated (Duh, there are a lot of people), but it was worth it because the food was great. It was our first time, so we asked the... More

I'll tell you why The Golden Chinese is so popular. Simply put, it has the freshest, best tasting Chinese food in town. Not fancy, mind you, just honest-to-goodness, delicious, Chinese cuisine. The vegetables are crisp, brightly colored, and make for a beautiful presentation. I have been eating here for literally a couple of decades and have NEVER ONCE had a... More

Yes, yes, it's a Fresno Tower District favorite, but that doesn't mean that it's good. I have expectations of any restaurant, regardless of cost, type of food, or location, that I'll be served food which appears appetizing, smells and tastes good, is served in a respectful manner at a price commensurate to the appropriate standards. Of course not everyone shares... More

Had dinner just now with family. Really busy with 3 waitresses for dinner rush, how can any manager/ owner allow that, anyhow the waitress was in a hurry after making us wait literally 25 min and had the gall to roll her eyes. Food was burnt and bland and greasy. It all tasted the same. We had the #2 family... More

We frequent Golden Restaurant at least twice a week and order our favorites family style: sizzling rice soup, almond chicken chow mein and green beans with chicken over pan fried noodles. In our book, this is the best Chinese food in town!

We've eaten here many times, and realized I had never written a review. Their food is very good, not exotic Chinese style, but Chinese-American with several great dishes that are unique. The Golden chicken is rich and wonderfully esasoned. They probably have the best BBQ pork I've ever encountered. In season we special order Asperagras Beef in black bean sauce,... More
