This little restaurant in a hidden gem - it's worth the drive!! The service is always quick and friendly. The won ton soup is some of the best we've ever eaten. The House Special Won Ton soup is filled with veggies, pork, chicken and shrimp. The House Special Fried Rice is so tasty. The Chicken in the Sweet and Soup... More

Dinner out with the girls meant a trip to Bellville's Golden Pagoda. We all ordered different savory dishes but being a lover of fried shrimp I ordered the S 14 sweet and sour fried shrimp, shrimp wrapped in bacon and deep fried. I also love the sauce and fried rice. We also had the fried dumplings for appetizer and their... More

People come from miles away to eat at the Golden Pagoda- a culinary institution in Bellville, TX. We eat here several times each year. Great food. Good service. Good value.

I grew up in Bellville not knowing just how delicious Golden Pagoda was until I tasted chinese food numerous other places. Now, when I go back, I always have to eat there. They have the absolute best of everything!

Authentically decorated interior. Ask for the fried noodles (crispies) to go with the best Hot & Sour soup I've ever had. Fried rice is wonderful (no goofy peas present!). But best surprise are the chunks of white chicken meat in the dishes. No mystery meat here. High quality Chinese food in a little out of the way small town. If... More

This was the 3rd of three restaurants recommended to us to eat at by the innkeeper of the B&B we stayed at. We were seated immediately, only a couple of tables were taken. The wait staff were attentive. I had the chicken chow mein with wonton soup and an egg roll. All were good. I would probably eat here again.

Everyone in Austin and Washington counties knows about this gem in Bellville about 70 miles west of inner Houston. Who'd a thought. Packed most of the time. As good as any in Houston. Avoid puffy fried stuff. Go for the Hunan pork and volcano chicken or any spicy dish. Always great!

I have worked at several towns in the area and drive to Bellville when i want Chinese food. Lunch specials are great price and quantity is immense for lunch. The soup and egg roll are good. Parking is limited, so get there early. Great, friendly service!

We drive about an hour to get here. We have been going here for years, but today was the best ever. I love Hot and Sour soup and this was the best of any restaurant we have ever eaten at. Large chunks of chicken and veggies. THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT, OUR DRINK GLASS NEVER GOT LESS THAN ONE THIRD REMAINING... More
