“The dinner buffet preparations were disappointing!”

New Golden Star Restaurant
Ranked #23 of 47 Restaurants in Hope
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 June 2017

We chose Golden Star for our first dinner during a recent 2-night stay in Hope. The restaurant was located almost directly across the street from our lodging, and after more than enough driving to/from/and around during the day, it was picked as our choice for dinner.

Golden Star has a rather large menu of various a-la-carte and ‘combination-type’ offerings, plus, a small, all-you-can-eat buffet setup (w/hot and cold offerings). After settling into a side wall table, we walked over and checked out the buffet. The offerings looked ok, and while there, we watched one of the kitchen staff refill a couple of trays. We opted for the buffet.

The food: presentations of most of the main course dishes, sides, salads, desserts, et al, looked good, but subsequent tastes sure proved looks can be deceiving, most preparations were below ok. We each made the initial mistake of taking too much during our first pass of the offerings. Now what? more of the same? We tried, but gave up rather quickly. Especially sad for me, even the ice cream, which I usually enjoy after such a meal, was of such a poor quality it did little to take thoughts and tastes of the previous offerings away.

We chose Golden Star for dinner, and left being more than just a little disappointed.

We had dinner buffet after a short walk at nearby park. $45 (before tips) for 3. We could get something better for "dinner" for 50 bucks. Just a typical Chinese restaurant with no "Oh the food was so good" moment.
