We have a large family. It's just better seating to eat at home. We ordered shrimp and broccoli, beef and broccoli, sweet and sour chicken, egg rolls, crab Rangoon and shrimp fried rice. It was all again very good.

My husband and I had great expectations for this restaurant given its history of awards. It is located off the beaten path in a tired, run down strip mall. It's a bit difficult to see from the road and located next to a strange little antique shop. Parking is ample. Decor is typical, dated American/Chinese restaraunt. Service is exceptional from...

Tonight is take out. Everyone agreed on Chinese. Sweet and sour chicken with vegetables, chicken and vegetables, beef and broccoli, shrimp fried rice. And an abundance of white rice. It really tasted good. We are very lucky to have such a good Chinese restaurant in our neighborhood. And they gave us a nice 2017 calendar.

Best Egg Rolls around! I always get the Mongolian Beef spicy! Sweet and sour combo is great too! Dine in or take out only... I wish they delivered, but that's the only negative!

This is our favorite Chinese Resturant. You will find all of the staples here. The food is always great. The staff at Golden Gate is top-notch... They are always welcoming to us and our small boys. Paul (owner) always offers for the boys to hit the gong... Smiles all around! You won't be disappointed.

Such delicious food. Friendly staff. My "go to" for this type of food. General T'So chicken is the best. Vegetable LoMein is a favorite. I order it every time.

I just happened to be driving down Racine Avenue, and saw their open sign about 4:00 pm. So I decided to park and browse thru the Antique store in the same strip mall and call in my order while shopping (yes, the number is in my cell) My order was piping hot and ready in about 10 minutes for pick...

We have done in store and take out in the past. I had nothing good to say those two times. I usually get beef and broccoli. The take out had terrible taste and kind of red sauce. It didn't seem right but I didn't know the place. This time everything was good. Beef and broccoli was good, it had normal... More

Their house made sweet and sour sauce is a 10, enrolls 10(hell probably the best I've ever had) crab rangoon 10. If you want a main course from there you will leave feeling sorry you wasted your money.
