Although this restaurant is located in the Walmart Shopping Center on the Lexington Highway in Athens, it is a most excellent dining experience. First and foremost, it is quiet and relaxing with soothing music--no blaring sports bar experience. There is no buffet but my menu-ordered food came out quickly and in courses. For $10, I got hot and sour soup,... More

This is a small dining restaurant in the Walmart shopping plaza. Don't let this fool you. I have never been disappointed with the food here. The wait staff is great, and the food us so delicious.

This is good Chinese food with crunchy veggies. I have tried a few different dishes here. The velvet chicken has lots of white breast meat and vegetables. It is a very mild white sauce. Not enough flavor for me, but all the components were tasty. The orange beef had great flavor - lots of orange peel and hot peppers. It's... More

The food is always fresh and cooked to perfection. You can request hot and spicy or regular. You can also ask for no extra salt and no msg. These guys will cook your order to your specifications or you can just order with no special requests. I have never, I repeat never, gotten a bad meal here or had my... More

After reading the reviews while standing in the Walmart parking lot, I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did. Everything is made fresh after you order. The waiter was simply outstanding. Better than almost any other waiter I've ever been served by. He described each menu item I asked about as if he knew the recipe by heart... More

With so many great ratings we were confident that this was a sure bet. And in fairness to Golden Sun the service was very good, the portion size generous, food came out of the kitchen with perfect timing & the cost was more than fair for two full lunch entrees. What dragged the entire experience down to an Average rating... More

One of my favorite restaurants. All freshly prepared. You may expect regular strip mall Chinese food. Not here. This is Chinese cuisine as it is supposed to be. When I travel to Athens, I ALWAYS stop here for a meal. In particular, their soups are outstanding. Excellent service as well. The price is very affordable to boot!

Recently I reviewed a Chinese Restaurant in Columbus GA. It would be a huge mistake to overlook Golden Sun. Linda and Jackie have poured there heart into their restaurant. They provide a pleasant atmosphere allowing you to relax and enjoy their delicious plates. I could live on the sizzling rice soup and egg foo young; however, they have a nice... More

Have been here several times and the food is always good and the service is great. Have tried over 10 dishes and liked all of them, the hot and sour soup is good, the only thing I would change is the egg rolls, could be larger and better.

Stopped in for a take out dinner while staying in a local hotel. Service was quick and food was extremely OK. About $12 for a meal. No complaints. The take out serving was huge. With a refrig and microwave in the hotel room that was good for three nights. You have to like Chinese a lot to eat it for... More
