We have lived in the area for 6 years and time and again we have been told "you have to try Golden Harvest". Other restaurants were also mentioned but this is the first one that truly lived up to its reputation. It is a tiny little restaurant with a ton of eclectic charm. Very loud music of every genre only... More

The food is exceptional. It is the best I have ever had. The specials are truly special. Zane, the chef, is an artist. Portions are unbelievable!

While visiting Golden Harvest, you'll most likely immediately find a line outside. This is normal and worth it. Don't go in asking how long it will be or bug the staff. They'll bring you in as soon as there's room. Only two in your party? You may with with two strangers. Enjoy it and embrace it. Make friends. Take in... More

I ate there for the first time because everyone raves about how good the food is. Well the decor and music is eccentric and intriguing which i liked. I had caramel apple french toast with bacon and home fries. I was being a pig and ordered loaded grits. They were creamy with crumbled sausage, cheese and green onions! There so... More

The food and service here are fantastic! I've had the omelettes, the French toast, the pancakes. All great! The ambiance is very cool - very kitschy and retro. The last time I was there I got to watch a series of Land of the Lost episodes. Fantastic! The staff is very friendly and courteous. You have to be patient, though.... More

I simply cannot say enough good things about Golden Harvest. This is literally the only restaurant that I've ever been to that is worth the wait. The Bubba Sandwich is my favorite, but I've honestly never had something there that I didn't like. It's so eclectic and unique, unlike anywhere else. If you come to Lansing, you MUST try this.

This is by far the best food in Lansing. I make a point of going here at least once a week when it's warm enough to brave the line. There is a a line every weekend, usually 35-40 people long at the door waiting for them to open. The staff is awesome, as long as your not an idiot they... More

Ate here for the first time after hearing a lot about it. I was prepared for a 30-45 minute wait outside and a hour wait for food once ordered. I was lucky and got right in. Had the eddie Omelette , it was very tasty! Take a look at the menu online to get a idea what you want first.All... More

Poor service doesnt make up for good food. Always lived in Lansing and have heard of Golden Harvest and went to take a chance on this dive. When i got there I asked how long the wait might be only to be immediately prompted to close the door (because it doesnt close on its own and doesnt shut all the... More

I hate waiting in lines and with so many available options in the Lansing area I still find myself coming back at least once a month. Yes the wait can be extensive, the service is mostly mediocre at best, and the place is defiantly cramped. Even with all that, the great unique dishes that are served here make up for... More
