This restaurant is run by a very nice couple. They have proved to be a lifesafer during this Pandemic. You can order by phone and then only have to step inside a pick up no more than 1 foot from the door. The cash register...is shielded from the customer by a temporary partition making contactless pickup possible. The food is as good as you can get outside of San Francisco. I love their Orange Chicken. My wife usually does not like this dish since she doesn't appreciate the batter most restaurants use. She says this is the only place she wants to eat Orange Chicken. I hope they survive this terrible situation. Their take out appears to be doing well, so I will keep my fingers crossed.More

We drove past this place so many times and kept saying we'd stop. Finally did. Pleasantly surprised by how good the food was and great value. We've been twice more since.

We wanted a quick meal and got it. Lots of options and huge portions. Plenty left over for the next day's dinner.

I have tried 4 other local Chinese restaurants - By far, Golden Dragon is the best of 5 ! Their sizzling rice soup comes with shrimp & chicken - None of the others do. - Their entire menu “Kicks Ass” - No doubt about it.../ its the best in the area !!! Day H - PlacervilleMore

Very good Chinese food. The best hot and sour soup in the area! I also have a most excellent orangey calamari. It’s not on the menu you have to ask for it. But it’s most excellent!

Unable to order without pork without extra charge. Seemed unhappy to be having to take an order to go. The man who brought out our food was nice. I love chowmein, sadly it was made with the giant noodles, rather than Chinese noodles. Sauces don't...have much flavor. Expensive for what you get. This place not great, we won't be going back.More

You won't go away hungry. Large lunch weekly specials. I always wind up with a doggie- bag, no matter how hungry I was. The staff is very friendly and nice.

This has good predictable food. In a large strip mall with booth and table seating. They have the standard selection of Americanized oriental food. My phone orders are ready within 15 minutes of my call and prices the same as others in the area.

The food is always good here. We order "take-out" & it is ready in 15 - 20 mins. Highly recommend Peking Ribs, Walnut Prawn, House Chow Mien, Potstickers w/hot oil, Hot & Sour Soup, Sweet & Sour ANYTHING. Always pleased!
