1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Had to wait 15 minutes to get a cook to the grill. Food tasteless, not warm and the place was filthy.

“New Name”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Went by yesterday and see there is a new name on the place. Not sure if this means improved cleanliness or not but will probably give them another chance. As another reviewer said it started out great and then started slipping. Have to find out if it is just a new name but the same people or if it changed hands. My ratings are for the old name and not the new name so may no reflect the current level of quality.

“My Favorite Chinese Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I love the food at Golden House. I enjoy healthy selections and there are loads of them available, along with the regular staples of the Chinese Buffets. This is a nice family owned establishment and I always go there when I'm in the neighborhood. The locals will tell you that this is the best food. There are other buffets in the are, but the food they have is not prepared with as much care and skill as Golden House. The soups are great. Instead of going for fast food, try Golden House. It's quick - the food is waiting for you - and you will be very happy.

“GROSS”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Take a look at the dates of the reviews...
This used to be a favorite place to go with friends. Unfortunately, the last couple of times I have gone, it has been disgusting.
In the bathroom I watched in horror as an employee went right out of one of the regular stalls(after flushing) and out the bathroom door without washing her hands. She walked over to the steam table and began stirring the food.
I have put bad food in my mouth and had to spit it out.
I also feel like the service has drastically changed (maybe the employees are stressed about dealing with all the complaints?)

Like I said, check the dates of the reviews... most of the recent ones echo my own opinion. This place is no longer a good place to eat. Unless you want samonilla or some other food borne illness.
