My family always went here for chow mein for years , but for the past couple of years we have tried other places with good and bad results, because Golden was starting to lessen their quality. Tonight we tried Golden again, (close to home). SO, chow mein - we ordered plain which always has the pork (ie not meatless just... More

You know how some restaurants are hit and miss? That doesn't happen at Golden. The food is consistently excellent. It is Cantonese, which is the old-fashioned Chinese restaurant you remember from your childhood. Basic interior, but clean, sometimes entertaining staff, always friendly and efficient. Take out available. Oh, and the prices are really low considering thee quality of the food.

This place is a small hole in the wall on west 7th.homemade egg rolls and a clean interior. The prices are great for college students. If you don't come on down and try you might not live past 50

To enjoy this restaurant you need to have a specific type of Chinese cooking in mind - i.e., the type that in the -50s and -60s comprised 90+% of American Chinese restaurants. The food is very plain, the prices reasonable, the service is check and friendly. I wouldn't drive a long drive a long way to eat here, but then... More

Do you like to keep a roster of hole-in-the-wall restaurants in your line-up? If yes, please add this to your list under Chinese. Its fantastic. The food is straight forward, and their combos have been perfected- so you will leave very happy. In fact, the food is so blue-collar good that you'll be positioning yourself for success- a return trip... More

I recently was in the neighborhood near Golden Chow Mein on West 7th Street in St. Paul for my daughter's basketball practice. I needed to get dinner for the family to bring home after the practice, so I decided to look for a new place to try. I found Golden Chow Mein located nearby on a Google Map and did... More

I decided to give this place a try because many people in the neighborhood go there. I ordered beef with broccoli and eggrolls. I am picky with my Chinese food and I rarely try new takeout for good reason. The beef had a really weird consistency, mushy and soft. The broccoli was overcooked and also soft. The eggrolls had an... More
