Another old favorite, under new management

Place has been here over 40 years. Now under new management. With the heavy influence of Chinese workers at the casino, the food is very good and reasonable. Worth the stop.

Beware MSG! While most Chinese restaurants limit the MSG content to what naturally occurs in things like soy or oyster sauce, this place adds even more to their food. We had just finished our appetizers, when my face turned red and the full blown migraine hit. Instantly suspicious, I called and was told they add MSG. Needless to say our... More

We can't believe we had to travel so far to have the BEST Chinese food ever! The menu was so diverse that if you couldn't decide on any food, shame on you. Every thing on the menu was fresh, the hostess visited the tables conversing with the customers and the beverages were very good. The best part...a majority of the... More

We've spent years searching for authentic Chinese food in Connecticut. Of the places that serve dim sum, Golden Palace is far and way the best. The dishes and flavors are authentic (three different styles of chicken feet!) and the service is quick. They don't use the push-carts but rather you use a paper menu to check off what dishes you...

I belong to an Asian community organization and frequently go to the Golden Palace with the organization's President. He is also the past owner of the restaurant. I have a huge advantage when I go with him because he knows how to read the Chinese menu and order wonderful authentic Chinese dishes. This restaurant is a favorite with the local... More

I haven't had such authentic Chinese food in decades. This place is not much to look at from the outside but the food is outstanding. There may be a bit of a language barrier but items on menu are numbered. The place was packed at 12:15 on a Friday afternoon and everyone but us were Asian. This may be a... More

For Chinese dining between, this place has been around & can serve up the typical Americanized item like Chicken & Broccoli or H.K. style Beef Chow Hor Fun in Black Bean Sauce - and, Dim Sum made to order for brunch. Buffet items on select days and orders to take out (back to the nearby hotel for those tired of... More

The food here is OK, not great, especially from the buffet. The buffet setup isn't the nicest but the food was good and adequate for the price of $11.50. kids pay the same price as adults though. I think if I go back, I would stick to ordering off the menu and perhaps try something more authentic then the typical... More

Here’s what you need to know: huge menu with lots of items you don’t find on the typical Chinese restaurant menu around here. Chow fun, cold noodles with sesame sauce, bitter melon, etc. Multiple vegetarian choices. I’m not a fan of buffets, but do feel compelled to point out that it was clearly a popular choice with the other diners... More
