“Below terrible rating...One of the most disgusting meals ever had.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We are locals, not tourists. 3 of us went to lunch. We had a Poo Poo platter, sweet and sour pork, curried shrimp and spring rolls...The food was so dry and tasted so old it was disgusting. The Poo Poo platter: Could not eat anything without dunking it in sauce. One sauce was sweet n sour, the other a chili sauce which was stale... The curry shrimp: I have no idea what was in the curry, but it was so salty and bad tasting no one could not eat it, it also tasted old and stale... Lastly was sweet and sour chicken... we think. The spring rolls and egg rolls were so dry and old, they tasted like they had ground jerky for the "meat" I think we were served old leftovers. I would not recommend eating there at all.

“I'm not a tourist, I live here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This restaurant is always coming up with innovative ways to prepare food and they are always delicious. I have yet to see this restaurant empty, even in the most horrid weather conditions and there's a reason for that - they are excellent! Forget buffets with watery food and waiters who can't pronounce the dishes they serve. Golden International is a hidden gem.

“Awful Chinese”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We picked up a to go order and it was the worst Chinese we have every had. The Sesame Chicken was non edible, the chicken was tough and the sause was grotesque. The pork fried rise was tasteless and they didn't know what chicken subgum was. The food was over priced and and I would ever go to this restaurant again.
