This is our favorite Chinese Resturant. You will find all of the staples here. The food is always great. The staff at Golden Gate is top-notch... They are always welcoming to us and our small boys. Paul (owner) always offers for the boys to hit the gong... Smiles all around! You won't be disappointed.

Such delicious food. Friendly staff. My "go to" for this type of food. General T'So chicken is the best. Vegetable LoMein is a favorite. I order it every time.

I just happened to be driving down Racine Avenue, and saw their open sign about 4:00 pm. So I decided to park and browse thru the Antique store in the same strip mall and call in my order while shopping (yes, the number is in my cell) My order was piping hot and ready in about 10 minutes for pick...

We have done in store and take out in the past. I had nothing good to say those two times. I usually get beef and broccoli. The take out had terrible taste and kind of red sauce. It didn't seem right but I didn't know the place. This time everything was good. Beef and broccoli was good, it had normal... More

Always fresh and affordable. I love the Shanghai noodles, fried chicken, chicken fried rice and chow mein. You won't be disappointed.

Their house made sweet and sour sauce is a 10, enrolls 10(hell probably the best I've ever had) crab rangoon 10. If you want a main course from there you will leave feeling sorry you wasted your money.

I order take out from here on a semi regular basis. They are friendly and the food is good. I've eaten in the dinning room one time and it was a pleasant experience.

We picked up our usual order and the sesame chicken was filled with green peppers and cherries and tasted like sweet-and-sour chicken! That was disappointing the only thing that balance it out is that the eggroll was delicious and the egg foo yong was not bad...

My husband I tried Golden Gate Restaurant for the first time on a Friday night. First impressions for the Chinese restaurant were great; the restaurant space was split in two with a lounge/bar on the left, and a nicely decorated dining room on the right. Appetizers of crab rangoon were lightly fried and the Oolong Ice Tea tasted fresh. It... More

We ordered shrimp egg foo young, combination fried rice, and egg rolls for take-out. Everything was fresh and delicious. There didn't seem to be an excessive amount of oil, like most places.
