Golden Lotus serves really good traditional Chinese cuisine. I have been there several times in the past few weeks because it was recommended to me by a Chinese friend. I find the Won Ton Soup to be delicious, the pork Lo Mein outstanding, the green...More

Everything we ordered was great and they give you a lot of it! We couldn't eat it all so we took the rest home for lunch the next day. Good value overall.

The staff is friendly, the prices are high, which equates to low in value. That said, some of the food was good, some uninspired. Some dishes that should be bulletproof, such as fried rice, were definitely on the meh side. Not terrible, but we won't...More
