Never know what to expect. We'd been here a few times and food was pretty good. We usually order lemon chicken and almond chicken subgum chow mein with pan fried noodles. The 'hostess' has never been friendly but waitresses are pleasent and service was good. Twice, when getting food to go, we'd arrive home and discover there weren't any almonds on the chow mein. We went there Sat. night (3-21-09) to pickup a to go order. We'd decided to try pork egg foo young and our mainstay, almond chicken sub gum chow mein. The pork egg foo young was horrible, like ground up soy , texture of sawdust and glue! And our favorite chow mein was mostly celery. That is the last time they will disappont us. Now we are looking for a GOOD tasting Chinese place to eat in WA. county.
One of the best chinese restaurants. It is one of the best restaurant that I have been to. Don't let the price on the menu scare you. Though it may seemed expensive at first, but it is actually a decent price for the food. They give you a big portion for your money. The waitress are also very nice and the atmosphere is perfect. It has a retro elegance to it. I would highly recommand anyone who wants to experience a great atmosphere while dining on the delicious food.
Bad Food, Bad serivce if you are Chinese, Bad food and Bad food.
If you are looking for something really look like American Chinese but not real Chinese (I am not talking about the food at all, only the look), you can come here. But if you are Chinese, please don't even think about coming here because they don't serve Chinese food (not at all Chinese food). It looks like Chinese food but taste really bad. I am a Cantonese and they claim to serve "hong kong and Canton" food. This is really bad since I never eat something so bad before. If you are really thinking about coming here and looking for American Chinese, panda express is better.
******At least, anyway, DON'T COME!!!!*********I waste my time, my money and had a very bad stomach yesterday.
I can't believe it's on this list at all!!. My family went to this place because my niece remembered going when she was young. Oh YUCK! I should have guessed from the outside it would be bad. There are stained, disgusting curtains on the upper windows that probably have been there since the place was built. Then, upon reaching the front door, there was a side door opened with cardboard etc. spilling out from it. It reeked of stale smoke as we entered the main foyer. Still, I didn't want to dissapoint the other five people (three of whom were already seated) by leaving immediately, so I bravely led my husband and son in. We were seated in the way back so the smoke smell wasn't so bad. I had hope. I've seen commercials for this place recently and it looked yummy. We ordered from a lady who probably had worked there for many years, she was barely able to keep herself at our table long enough to take our orders, didn't even ask if we wanted beverages, I had to stop her from leaving in order to do so. My niece had to go the restroom, so I accompanied her. Holy smokes, too disgusting for words, peeling wallpaper and all. I cannot believe they are in business. After that I was scared to eat the food that was on it's way. The appetizers we ordered were greasy and bland. The food looked like it was all previously frozen. I barely ate a bite from each just to be sure I wasn't in a bad dream! It was expensive, gross, and tasteless. I will never return and even checked to see if they had complied with the food police, unfortunately they had not had an inspection recently. DON'T GO!! It's awful.
The horror! The horror!.
After my experience at this restaurant, I feel compelled to tell others as a warning.
First off, this place is kind of spendy for a Chinese restaurant, but you figure if it's expensive it might be good right? That's what my husband and I figured. We ordered plate of Mandarin beef for $12.50. What was brought to us was not Mandarin beef, but some kind of horrible TV dinner meat swimming in gravy and onions. And a small ice-cream scooped slab of rice. And it looked so disgusting. It appeared as though dead slugs were simmered in pudding gravy juice. And it tasted that way too. The waitress even came up to us and said that the Mandarin beef didn't look right. She was nice so I didn't have the heart to tell her what a poor excuse this was for food and how I wanted my money back. We took a couple of bites and promptly left mentally scarred.
While there I had my husband look up what was actually in Mandarin beef. Ginger and various other Chinese spices. What they did to this meal is what Jeffrey Dahmer did to little boys. Please, for the love of God, do not go here.
Have loved it for 25 years!. We have been going to Golden Crown for over 25 years. We have gone with large parties (20 people), with kids, and as a couple. We have also gotten take-out MANY times. I love their Pork Fried Rice (I don't think it's dry, I think it is refreshingly NOT greasy), the sweet and sour sesame chicken, Subgum chowmein, and Fried Shrimp. My husband loves the General Tso's Chicken, mandarin chicken and the potstickers. In reading most of the other reviews, it appears that people love it or hate it. WE LOVE IT! I will say that their biggest negative is the smokey smell. We frequently order take-out so that we don't smell like an ashtray when we leave. Otherwise, I think the atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. Most of the employees have all worked there more than the 25 years we have been going.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena. Family-owned restaurant offers authentic Chinese cuisine, a cocktail lounge with karaoke on the weekends and banquet services.
Grrreat food!. This restaraunt makes my mother's favorite Chinese food and, well, mine too. Apparently a ton of other people like it too, because the parking lot is almost always full. The fried rice is not greasy (other people here have said it's dry, but probably because they're accustomed to greasy fried rice), the barbeque pork (and everything else I've tried) is superb. The french fries are obviously what you could get in the freezer section of any grocery store, but hey, it's a Chinese restaurant! Eat the chinese food!
The best Chinese you will ever have.
This is my favorite restaurant, hands down. When I have Chinese elsewhere, it does not compare. The service is excellent, and I love the atmosphere--mellow and comfortable, but classy at the same time.
I recently turned 21 and must say the karaoke in the lounge is a blast! Everyone is really friendly and you can have your yummy food and enjoy karaoke and cocktails.
All in all, Golden Crown rocks! Try a #1 and you'll never be able to eat other Chinese!
Great food and Great lounge. I have only eaten in the lounge which I like very much. If you like combination dinners this place takes the cake. The portions are big and the food is hot and very fresh.
