Golden Garden is the best Chinese restaurant in Knoxville. Most of the other are the same Chinese-restaurant-in-a-box as every other Chinese restaurant in town. The menu is even the same print except with a different restaurant name. The food at Golden Garden is truly scratch made awesome stuff!

Would like to start by saying we drive 20 minutes from west Knoxville for this place. Hands down the best Chinese in Knoxville. My personal favorite is the palace shrimp. It's family owned and operated with great service. They are closed on Sunday and Monday.

After reading the fantastic reviews online, I made the 17 mile drive to experience this food for myself. I got to the restaurant on Saturday about 7:15 pm. It is small but neat, and was a little more than half full with diners. The polite woman took my take-out order and mentioned that there would be about a 20 minute... More

Love this place. Staff is ever so nice and helpful. Have celebrated my birthday here too. The spice amount is just perfect every time. They are a great place for dine in or pick up. Glad to have them nearby.

I have been eating at this restaurant for more years than I care to mention and it is my favorite. I now live in west Knoxville so do not get out to Western Avenue as much but made it out again tonight. We had crab rangoons, hot and sour soup, and egg rolls to start off and all was great.... More

The Chinese restaurant we usually use closed down a couple of months ago, so we were without a good Asian inspired eatery. After searching Google and then TripAdvisor we found this small place just up the street from us. All I can say is WOW. The food was carryout and arrived home Hot and tasty. The servings were large for... More

We saw the high reviews so we decided to venture over there. Small location but large enough for perfect food and service. We are becoming regulars :)

My husband and I were travelling through Knoxville today and decided we wanted Chinese for lunch. I went to the Trip Advisor app on my phone and found good reviews for this restaurant, so we tried it. It was just as reported...a small hole in the wall restaurant in strip mall, but had an excellent lunch! They have a lunch... More
