The Golden Horse serves quality lunches at a good price. I always enjoy a combination plate or brocholli beef.

Was looking for a place to eat recently and found this in my wanderings in Chinatown. It isn't fancy, but some of the better places aren't, so don't expect much in the way of decor. There is an extensive menu selection and what I ordered was fantastic. On my first visit (at dinner), I ordered the pepper and salt squid... More

It's been around ten years since my last visit to the Horse and when an old friend suggested it, I jumped on it. The food was great back in the day, and that had not changed. My usual order of salt & pepper squid was just as I remembered it, crunchy, salty, spicy, and the squid was cooked just enough... More

As has been noted by others, the décor is dated and not impressive, but the food is great. We chose from the lunch menu and could not finish the main entrée. In fact we took the balance home for a late night snack that night. All this for less than $15.00! Service at 1:30 pm was fairly swift and, as... More

Good food, but place is dirty, good price and lots of variety. They have lots of different items to choose from, bad neighborhood.

I like their beef rice noodle food and been there twice within a few months... I have been taking out from this place twice within six months.

Stopped by here after the Chinese garden and had lunch. 2 meals with soup and egg rolls were only $13. Filled us up and we were ready for the next spot on our vacation and it didn't break the bank.

We passed by here for a quick lunch before heading to the Chinese Gardens. The ambience isn't much to speak of and there was only one server at the time. Food was just so-so. Serviceable if you don't expect too much.

Six of us went there on Christmas Day for a birthday celebration. It was very busy that evening and we had made reservations. They sat us right near the kitchen and made no apologies for it. In fact, the hostess was quite rude. The only saving grace was the food. Service was very slow, but we were satisfied with the... More

Stopped in here to have a bite and found it to be very tasty and fast. Huge quantities meant to share. I had a #2 combo and my husband had a #4. We shared and enjoyed several different dishes.
