Needs wait staff and take out improvement

Went to dinner with 2 friends, the young waitress was more interested in talking to her boyfriend and making phone calls than to properly wait on us. We didn't get plates to eat our appetizers, or sweet and sour sauce for the egg rolls. She never checked on us or offered drink refills. We each... read more

Incredibly mediocre Chinese food. That being said, it's an option for vegetarians in an area where there really aren't that many options.

We ate a late lunch here and it was an average to above average Chinese buffet. It's better than some but was missing selections that I was craving like a good General Tso and a good Teriyaki. In their defense it was a busy time for some reason and they don't over do their buffet so it doesn't get cold... More

Well where does someone start. Stopped for lunch buffet. It was 12:30 so we thought it would still be a good buffet. Well whatever was at the buffet, was gone. No attempt to fill pans that were empty. Waitress sat us done and never came back. Food was dried up and not good. I would not stop and will not... More

Staff were nice but service was a little slow. Not terrible food but not the best we've ever had-starchy Rangoon and rice was rather bland. No duck sauce-just sweet/sour.

We were staying at the Roadrunner and ran across the street to have dinner at the Golden Dragon. We had eaten there nearly 20 years ago, and we swore it looked exactly the same! The interior could use an update and probably a deep cleaning. The hostess/waitress was friendly and professional, even with many customers coming in and calling in.... More

The vegetables were a little crispier than I prefer, but the food was flavorful and the prices were reasonable.

Sorely disappointed in what I found. I stopped by at 12:30 for the all you can ea buffet. Some of the food wa burnt, some was totally dried out and other inserts were empty. Would not suggest this restaurant.

All the food on the buffet was very good. Great price and everyone working there was very nice. Would go back again when in the area. Right on Route 66.
