This was a few years ago - late at night, I went over to order fried rice. When I got home, I found out it was steamed rice "dressed up" with soy sauce to look like fried rice. Guess they figured the old white guy wouldn't know the difference. Maybe it's improved, but I'm not going to go back to... More

We have eat here for a lot of years. I rate this as the best Chinese food in the 5 Cities Area. I love the Moo Shu Pork and the Walnut Shrimp. I like there sweet and sour items but they could improve on it some. They do a great job putting together great combos for the Family A-B diners... More

Food is good. Service is fine unless they are pretty busy. Parking could be better. Highly recommend the take-out.

The Cream Cheese Wontons were delicious!! Very thin crispy crust. The dinner portions were very large. Two could have shared a dinner. We took enough home for another meal the next night!! They actually served coffee in this Chinese Restaurant!! That was a huge plus!!

Have you noticed lately, Chinese food restaurants all taste the same. It's like the donut shops...all buying the same canned fillings from the same wholesale supply house. Not Golden Gong. I base my likes on how well the hot n sour soup is...this is the BOMB!

We have been eating here for years, with family and as a couple. We like that they have big tables that will sit our whole family, are handicap accessible, do home delivery and have good food. We have not ever been disappointed with the food.

Came in for some lunch with my parents while visiting them over my birthday weekend. I was surprised that there were only a handful of people there since my parents rave about it. We were seated and my father asked. "Where is every body" She said "This is Friday so everyone comes in at night for dinner". We looked through... More

For almost twenty years now, this has been our consistent choice for celebrating our wedding anniversary every year. Their menu is quite good, but we are great devotees of their war won ton soup. With a bowl of rice and crispy noodles, it makes a superb anniversary meal! There is no other Chinese restaurant between Lompoc and San Luis Obispo... More

The food here is good for the area on the coast. The Orange Beef and Chicken Curry are my go-to dishes as well as the combo fried rice. I eat there or have delivered several times a year and can say the food is consistant.

Food had very little flavor and wasn't hot. In an area full of Chinese and other Asian restaurants, this one didn't cut it.
