The food was very good and the service was fair. While some Chinese restaurants have been moving toward "deconstructed fusion" this one has stayed true and it is much appreciated.

Expect very average Americanized food. The menus are all in English, you have to ask for chopsticks, and the tea is not that great. That being said, the tofu is fresh and the quantities are rather large.

Just your standard Chinese-American restaurant. Average menu, average preparation, average décor. Of course, nothing that you would ever see in China

Took the family there last night, two adults and two teens. The place is OK, but... Could use a good cleaning and sprucing up. The pot stickers were Very fried and oily. The steamed dumplings were lacking in detectable favor. The General Tso had a long hair in it, but they were quick to redo it. The "shrimp" in the... More

Golden Buddha is a popular place -- sometimes you have to park down the street. If so, it's worth a little walk. The wait staff is quick and the turn around on your order is too. You sometimes have to cut-up a little with the staff to get a smile out of them, but then they become warmer. Seldom have... More

Very Americanized Chinese food, that is just ok. Hot and Sour soup is mediocre. The egg rolls seem to be frozen and I've had much better from the frozen food section at the grocery store. The Orange Chicken was ok, not much orange taste. I often eat Chinese when traveling, and this is one I will not be visiting again.

The menu is very large and varied. The food was prepared very well. Portions are very large and could easily be shared. Service was excellent. Waiter was... More

This restaurant food was beautifully prepared and the setting was so calming and peaceful that we enjoyed a Happy Family get together and early evening dinner. Our service was attentive and friendlyt

We had not eaten at this vintage restaurant for many years. But we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food very fresh vegetables and meat. The quantities for one serving would actually serve 2 people easily. The happy family dish of mixed meat was delicious as well as the hot and sour soup. We will be back.
