Our first choice for take out in Golden China. The food is always good and we call, drive to town and our food is ready. Lemon chicken is our favorite

This is the worst place you could ever eat at in Highlands. Spend the extra money and eat at Asia house if you want Chinese food!

The food had a good taste but was cold. Steam pans on buffet were hot but the food was cold. There is only one working light in the restroom and i had to use the flashlight on my phone to use the restroom. I posted a pic to give an idea of how dark the restroom was.

Sushi was disgusting. I couldn't eat it. This place is the worst I've ever been. Avoid at all costs!

We visited Golden China today for lunch around 1pm. One other table was in the restaurant. The fork on my table looked like it had never been used, as a matter of fact, it stuck to the napkin when I asked the waitress for a new one. Ewww. My cup had something dark and suspicious stuck on the side of... More
