This is one of the authentic Chinese restaurants in Aurora. They have a wide range of spicy Sichuan dishes I ask for every time I go to this restaurant. Boil fish is spicy and delicious and so is the often misrepresented Mapo tofu. They do justice to Sichuan food in Aurora.

This is my go to place for Chinese food. They have a great selection of traditional and new dishes, so there is something for everyone. The service is usually pretty good, and the food is always delicious.

First rate service and food. The hot and sour soup, pork fried dumplings, and sesame chicken are quite good. Portions are generous. This is the best Chinese place in this part of town.

You will get a good meal at this restaurant. That includes the service. Besides the usual Asian specialties, there is good sushi, made fresh while you wait.

The three stars are mainly due to the food, which does not taste as good as expected. Despite that, the service is extremely fast and portions are quite big. Entrees cost about 12 bucks each. They have nice round tables for large group meals. Staff is friendly and nice.

This is what I would call a middle class restaurant, not as fancy as a super upscale place, but much better than some hole in the wall with the kitchen and the seating area in the same general area. The service was fast and prompt, the food was good and very plentiful. I ordered the sweet and sour chicken and... More

We have been going to Golden Shanghai for years. We have been to lots of Chinese restaurants in Denver and this is by far the best one. Service is excellent and the food is wonderful. We go often and the food is always consistently excellent. Husband orders off the Chinese menu (in Chinese-most authentic) always. Their sushi is great too.

In Denver for the night and craving good Chinese food. Found this little restaurant in a strip mall not too far from our hotel. It was a Sunday night so not very crowded. Service was good and timely and a nice variety of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai food. I had a spicy lamb dish which was very tasty. Also had... More

I have been looking for Chinese food in Denver that compares to the East Coast. This place comes close. We ordered off the family menu and had hot/sour soup, cheese wonton and egg roll to start. All were very good and tasty. We ordered the Pork Fried rice and Empress chicken. The menu said the Empress Chicken is spicy. Unfortunately,... More
