I ordered our Christmas meal at Golden City Chinese Restaurant on 9th Avenue and I have to say that the staff there could not have been nicer and the service was very good. The food was a disappointment. I had the Lemon Chicken with an...egg roll and an order of Fried Dumplings and a friend of mind had the General Tso's Chicken. She said that her's was fine and she had a side of the Chicken Wings that were really good. Mine was well cooked and the portion size was extremely generous but the whole meal had an under taste of oil that tasted like it had not been changed in a while. I could taste it in every bite of the chicken breasts and in the fried rice. It was disappointed in that it was so nice looking when it came in the to go dish. The fried dumplings were good and they had a nice flavor. I need to try it again for a second option of the restaurant. It was Christmas night and I want to try it again regular night.More

We were running late for a theater date and hadn't eaten all day, so we decided to go for a quick impromptu meal at the Golden City Chinese restaurant in Manhattan.We ordered the Seafood Triple delight and Beef with Broccoli accompanied with shrimp rolls, to...go. Our order was taken and The food was prepared quickly and we rushed back to our hotel room. To our surprise, the food was quite good and the portions were enormous. On our return to New York City, we will definitely return to Golden City.More

This is by far not a place for a romantic lunch or dinner. It is located across the street from the famous B & H Photo & Video store. But the food..... The food is excellent. Great for a take-out. It is my place on...Earth for an excellent "Hot & Sour Soup". Worth trying if you happened to be in the neighbourhood.More

Feeling lazy (courtesy of the rain) but craving Chinese, we decided to find the closest place near our accommodation. Satisfied with the menu options, we dined in. It's your basic hole-in-the-wall Chinese eatery and couldn't fault the food. My husband got Mongolian Beef and I...had Beef Ho Fun. The flavours packed punch and then with 10 Fried Won Tons for $3, what's not to love? Needless to say we didn't finish it all but we had a good crack at it. For a good Chinese fix, it's cheap, value and delicious. Thanks!More

Let me say, if you're here looking for some kind of crazy sushi, you're in the wrong place. Do you like orange chicken? You're in the right place! I can't speak for many of the other dishes, because quite frankly I live off of the...brown rice and orange chicken from this place. The combo is relatively cheap too, barely above five dollars. The service isn't great, but it's to be expected for such cheap food, in such a busy location. You aren't coming here for the service, you aren't coming here for the ambiance (pretty small inside, more oriented towards takeout/delivery.) But if you like your local Chinese food place, this place is more than likely better. The portions are always pretty large, the price is always very cheap, and you can get a good filling meal in NYC for under 6 dollars...where else you gonna find that? It's worth a try if you like Chinese food at all, this is my go to, and always will be.More

I have been ordering from this restaurant for the past 19 years, the food is very good, they don't cook with MSG which is very important to me and in addition, they don't overuse cooking oil like the other Chinese Restaurant nearby. The prices for...the food are quite good for the neighborhood where rent prices are quite high but then again, it is NYC. I always order ahead via the phone and go pick it up myself within 5-10 minutes and presto, it is ready. The décor could use some updating but then again, I come here for the food, not the décor....More

We stumbled across this place during our visit to the city. It's s small set up and they take time to deliver your order. But the food was good for the price we paid. Only one complaint is that the dumplings outer layer was very...thick.More
