This Golden Buddha is THE only Golden Buddha. I've lived in Atlanta for almost 35 years. I've been fortunate enough to have eaten at the Golden Buddha on Clairmont for almost that long. No other Chinese restaurant in the metro area even comes close. Lunch, dinner, they'll even deliver if you happen to be close enough. You can't beat it for classic American Chinese food. It hasn't changed much at all in the 25+ years I've been coming here. The disclaimer for reviewing says I certify I don't have a personal relationship with the establishment...well when they know you because you've been coming so long and the same people have been in charge for so long, I think that's ok.
Sizzling rice soup, fried wonton, eggrolls, mongolian beef, sesame chicken - that's my death row meal, from this place. With hot tea and copious amounts of ice water.
I came as a kid. I now come with my own kid. This place has ruined Chinese food for me, because I can't find any worth eating anywhere else in the country save one spot in Washington DC, so I must return here a few times a year even though its so far out of the way of my OTP lifestyle.
