Took my husband and kids out to eat for their dad’s birthday and we had a great time. The food was warm and tasted great, restaurant was clean and we got huge portions.

My wife & I have eaten at the Golden Wheel several times over the past two years. Both food & service have always been good. Last evening, Dec. 19, 2017, both food & service were terrible.

I ordered hot & sour soup and beef lo main. My wife ordered chicken lo main. After a substantial wait (about 20 minutes) my soup arrived. It consisted mostly of chicken broth thickened heavily with corn starch, along with some frozen peas & carrots, canned mushrooms, and shredded bamboo shoots…not sour, not hot (spicy), and not good.

When our lo main arrived, it consisted of a large amount of noodles topped with frozen peas & carrots (again) with snow peas, bamboo shoots, some beef & chicken, all with virtually no flavor. Oddly, the noodles were served with a side of fried rice which also had no flavor and appeared to contain nothing more than rice & carrots. This was the worst excuse for Chinese food we have experienced in a long time.

The Golden Wheel has been in Yakima for many years and we have had good dining experiences here previously. I don’t know what has happened, but we will not be going back until we are certain that The Golden Wheel has a chef capable of cooking Chinese food.

My wife and I had not eaten at this place for several years so we decided to give it a try. First the good part - the atmosphere is not bad and is quiet and subdued. Nice for a relaxing dinner. Now for the rest of the story. This is the only Chinese restaurant in town that doesn't offer a cup of soup with its meals. I ordered a small bowl of hot and sour soup. The cost - almost $5 for a very small bowl. Some of the worst hot and sour soup I have had anywhere. Very little taste and the soup was mainly broth. What ingredients that were in it was a few carrots, a few peas, a couple of mushroom slices and two small chunks of tofu. I ordered Mongolian beef and what I was served was unlike any Mongolian beef I have had anywhere. The dish was totally absent of any type of flavor. It was a plate heaped with plain boiled noodles with a few pieces of meat on top and a few small veggies added in. The dish wasn't bad, just plain with no taste and no flavor. I spent $15 for a large plate of mainly just plain noodles. Horrible. My wife ordered a combo meal. The shrimp she got were large and good. The chow mein was horrible - mainly celery, peas and carrots. Its like the cook got rid of all the good stuff that cost a little more money and used just the cheap ingredients for everything. The cost of the food is higher than any of the other Chinese places in town and considering that I didn't even get a cup of soup with the meal and considering the taste and quality of what we were served- GO SOMESHERE ELSE - don't waste your time or money.

It lacks ambiance, but is very good. You'll never leave without a "to go" box. Their portions are huge.
