Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Love Golden Buddha, it’s always good food. We’ve been going since I was kid. Great place to eat in the area. The portions are big, there’s always leftovers

Placed an order from here a couple weeks ago. Does not appear that they offer dine-in anymore? What used to be the lobby is now where you wait for your food order, the door to actually enter the restaurant was locked and papered over. ....The guy asks for the last 4 digits of my phone number, then you hand your money to him thru an opening where you can't even see the guy, just his hand reaching out. Creepy. Felt like I was there for a drug deal. One meal was decent, one was super salty. The fried rice part was good. This used to be a classy place, and now it feels more like a hole in the wall....which would be fine IF the food was amazing.More

Good food, they're clean and nice. Quality of dishes is better than most asian places in the area. Eat here if you want East Asian food.

When we first got here the exterior of the building definitely left me a little concerned but I was pleasantly surprised I think everyone can agree that the restaurant could use a little TLC but the food was good huge servings at very reasonable prices...I would definitely go backMore

Everytime we go we are treated like family, the best Chinese food in a 200 mile radius. The restaurant is always clean, and the staff is always friendly. The food comes out piping hot and the taste is great. We always take our visitors so...they can enjoy the experienceMore

Had delivery to the hotel I stayed in, and the crab rangoon & egg rolls were FABULOUS!!! Best crab rangoon I've had. I was a little disappointed that there were not food descriptions in the menu. Might have ordered more if I had known what...things were & what were in them.More

The food was at a good price. Lots of selection. The drinks were expensive for the amount of drink. But the whole place was run down.

We took my mom here for her birthday. We used to live a lot closer to this restaurant and went there a lot! It really makes me sad to put a mediocre review about it. The minute we walked in, the smell hit us. I...couldn't figure out if it was a fishy smell or a dirty smell. I also noticed that it was very humid in the restaurant. The waiter took us to our table and there was a knife and some papers on the floor next to our table. There weren't many people in the restaurant as we were there earlier on a Sunday for lunch. It still took them a while to get us ice water. We placed our orders and I kept wondering if the kitchen was cleaner than the dining room. Our food came in a reasonable amount of time. It was all hot and looked as good as it ever did. The egg rolls are really what keeps us coming back. The General Tso's is wonderful. Overall, it wasn't the most horrible experience I've had in a restaurant but the cleanliness of the place really bothered me. They also need to crank up their air on a hot summer day. We don't live close anymore and so it isn't a hard decision as to whether we will make a special trip there or not. It just makes me sad that this restaurant has gone downhill like it has. They used to be top notch.More

We use to eat here all of the time, but the past couple of times it has not been the same. Food was good but the cleanness of the restaurant was questionable.

The food is pretty good, especially the egg rolls. Ive noticed the atmosphere has gone downhill in recent years. I had several people agree that it smells like musty cigarette smell inside.

Ordered our stand bye that we always get the sesemee chicken or pork fried rice. Ordered it special order which we did not get the way we requested. The food was old dry and not hot. It was tough as well. The best thing was...the soup which had too much salt as well. It will be some-time before we try it again. Will go to a different place when we want ChineseMore

Food was outstanding, and plenty enough to take the rest home. Service was good. The first time we went with a group and within the week, Hubby & I went back. We are going again within the next couple of weeks. LOVE their food
