Cheap and gross. You get what you pay for - this is cheapest place for dim sum in Tri-Valley. They use old shrimps, from walnut mayo shrimp dish, to make rice roll shrimp so that what should be a savory dish is sweet. All their food had poor quality ingredients with sugar, fat and msg to mask taste. I also... More

Best dim sum around. It's always full but when there's waiting time it's not usually long. If they say it's a 30 min wait, it's about a 15 min. But the food is worth it. The shumai is our favorite!

This is a popular family-style Chinese restaurant with pretty good Cantonese or Hong Kong style Chinese food. Service is OK even though they seem short-handed. Food is somewhat on the greasy side.

We went on a Monday evening at 6:00 pm and the restaurant was quite full. There were 9 of us so we got to order +9 dishes. We waited at least 15 minutes before the sizzling lamb came out. Tasty but too much green onion filler. I would not order this again. And then, oh my, the Peking duck prepared... More

I first tried the dim sum at Golden Sand Harbor in October 2014. I thought the food was pretty good, but the service subpar and the tables too closely spaced for comfortable dining. Both the food and service improved on my subsequent visits and I really liked their dinner menu. I took my mom for dim sum lunch there today.... More

I am not sure how to describe the Cali Chinese food, its like going backwards in the time machine, back to the era of 'choy suey'! The Golden Sand Harbor fits into that mode, the food as well as the service were unmemorable and disappointing. I drew a complete senior moment trying to recall what I had eaten but I... More

I tried Combination seafood clay pot, Szechuan beef, pea sproud with Garlic sauce, and BBQ combination platter. The first two dishes are excellent and the other two are on average. Therefore, my rate is 4 stars.

We have been here a couple of times the last couple of months - one for a large group celebration and it was very good so I decided to return with my family in tow. At this restaurant - you are given a menu and order what you like (no carts). All of the selections we had were very good.... More

I was recommended this place by a friend. When I first arrived to the restaurant many people were walking in so I knew it must be a locals favorite spot. I am not from the area so looking for a good place to eat is a must when on business trips. I must say the service, food, and place was... More
