When entering the Golden Gong we were looking forward to some good food but found it to be just okay. The Almond Chicken was soupy and the fried rice was actually seasoned rice. We were also seated in a booth near a large table. By the time we finished eating a large group had sat at the table and blocked... More

Don't be deceived by the exterior on the corner of the busy Grand Ave in Grover Beach. My daughters and I were completely charmed by the decor and relaxing atmosphere within. And the food and service were great too. The egg rolls were fantastic!

Nice little family run business, the Golden Gong was actually better then expected and by the looks. Not overly large on the inside, but comfortable and clean, the staff was friendly and quick to be seated. Do expect to wait a bit if dinning in, as they prepare the dishes fresh as ordered, which will usually take 20 - 35... More

I love the quiet, warm feeling whenever I eat at Golden Gong because the waitresses are always friendly and welcoming. Ordering To-Go has been awesome; the wait time is always quick and I significantly get more food.. than dining in, which is not exactly a bad thing. I always get the dinner special, which is always enough food..and I always... More

This was a few years ago - late at night, I went over to order fried rice. When I got home, I found out it was steamed rice "dressed up" with soy sauce to look like fried rice. Guess they figured the old white guy wouldn't know the difference. Maybe it's improved, but I'm not going to go back to... More

We have eat here for a lot of years. I rate this as the best Chinese food in the 5 Cities Area. I love the Moo Shu Pork and the Walnut Shrimp. I like there sweet and sour items but they could improve on it some. They do a great job putting together great combos for the Family A-B diners... More

Food is good. Service is fine unless they are pretty busy. Parking could be better. Highly recommend the take-out.

The Cream Cheese Wontons were delicious!! Very thin crispy crust. The dinner portions were very large. Two could have shared a dinner. We took enough home for another meal the next night!! They actually served coffee in this Chinese Restaurant!! That was a huge plus!!

Have you noticed lately, Chinese food restaurants all taste the same. It's like the donut shops...all buying the same canned fillings from the same wholesale supply house. Not Golden Gong. I base my likes on how well the hot n sour soup is...this is the BOMB!
