Great chi ese food. Try the whole fish and some spicy dish. The home made tofu was impressive. Many many choices and not sure how the chef can cook so many different dishes

I've heard so much about Golden Harbor and it lived up to all expectations. What is really surprising is that the restaurant has a very large menu and has still been able to maintain its quality. We came in a big group and tried a...several dishes, including sichuan type dry fish, frog legs, spicy beef, spicy tripe, Chinese brocolli, amazing eggplant,... Almost everything we tried was delicious.More

We visited with a large group and with an individual who lives in China. She described Golden Harbor as a combination of many local restaurants in China. I have always thought the restaurant was very good and our guest confirmed that feeling.

Old-fashioned Chinese family restaurant. You fill out a slip with your orders, give it to the cashier, and bus your own food. Portions large, food very good.

They have two menus, one for your standard American Chinese food, and one for Authentic Chinese/Taiwanese food. Unusual ordering system, but it gets the job done. Portions are huge. The authentic section is very comparable to Taiwanese street food. Overall, really good.

The food is exquisite: fresh, organic (many ingredients), and tasty. The best Chinese food I have ever had in central Illinois. Though most dishes are pricey, you will surely return for more.

We’ve been eating here for years and the food is fast and delicious. Recently the prices have been going up. Now it seems like the average is close to $18 a dish. Portions are good, but still. Also they charge a plate cleaning fee.

They have way too many dishes, so hard to select.....they are all good if you like real chinese style food. once you select, you give number to cashier and take number to your table. They charge $1 per each person for cleaning fee, no additional...tips required. You can choose white or fried rice when you pay for the food at the cashier. They also provide cash discount vs. cardMore

Very large group/family oriented restaurant with a huge menu. Our food was delivered to our table within minutes. Very tasty. Place filled with locals and lots of families. Lots of leftovers. Good experience.
