Good food. Work on the to-go packaging.

Good Chinese food, though nothing stellar as some might claim. I loved the egg rolls, though my wife found them too greasy. Hunan and General Tso's chicken were good enough. To-go service was friendly BUT the packaging was severely lacking. A large order was packed and stacked into a thin, tall... read more

This is suppose to be an award winning restaurant. It does have awards. However our family doesn't care for the taste of most items we ordered. We did try it twice. We tried the beef and broccoli and white rice. The sauce on this dish was odd tasting. I couldn't eat it. The hong sue chicken was good but fried... More

Our go to Chinese place in Waukesha is Kim's Garden. Alas when we stopped last night they were on their annual vacation and the place was closed for a few weeks. Nothing but Chinese was going to do for us so we ventured over to the Golden Gate. The restaurant was clean and service was very friendly and efficient. Our... More

At least every other week! Best Chinese food in Waukesha. Lucky to have them in town. Dine-in or carry out...doesn't matter. Keep up the great work!

Just moved to the area and thought it would be nice to find a good Chinese restaurant. This is NOT it. Pot stickers where deep fried, not pan fried with steamed tops. Even the shrimp toast was lame - skimpy and tasted of old oil, as did the egg foo jung. Hunan shrimp was only OK with a taste of... More

I have been here a few times but will not be coming back anymore. Food has nothing special to it and no flavor. You can get better tasting Chinese and a cheaper price else where.

We visited here on New Years Eve. The food was good. The restaurant was clean. I thought the portions were smaller than other Chinese restaurants, however the prices were lower. I would eat here again. The service was a little slow, but they were busy. The waitress stopped by often to check on us.
