I've tried dozens of vegetarian Chinese places in California and this place takes the cake. There simply isn't a place that will make an authentic tasting false meat dish better than Golden Era and their food is so fresh and well seasoned

Awesome food every time! We keep going back for more, especially the spicy gourmet "chicken" and garlic "beef". We've never been disappointed and always leave stuffed.

Great food but I've tried the second on Clement and it bites. Food isn't as good, terrible and rude service.

I've only been here once on a visit to San Francisco, but the food was great and even my meat eater friends liked it. Lots of chinese-style "meat" + vegetables in thick sauce eaten with rice - yum.

Golden Era restaraunt does cater especially to vegetarians, as well as vegans, but can certainly be enjoyed by the casual meat eater. The dishes all resemble carniverous fare, but there is not a morsel of meat to be found. The food is incredible, and the buddha bun is a great choice. Atmosphere, and staff are quite pleasant. Highly recommended.

Great little restaurant in San Francisco - this Golden Era Vegetarian Restaurant is. I reallu enjoy all the appetizers and usually that is what I order with friends - a table full of apetizers. they are not too light, a little greesy but oh so good. I've actually never ordered a dinner dish there yet - appetizers all the way

I really love sweet and sour chicken and dishes like that, but since becoming a vegetarian, I have been deprived of it. Golden Era has supplied me with vegetarian options that taste very much like the real thing! The waitstaff isn't very sociable, and the ambiance leaves a bit to be desired, but if you're looking for a filling, inexpensive, vegetarian meal, Golden Era's a good choice.

PROS: inexpensive, vegetarian food
CONS: low-key

Great food, most of which is vegan. Quite a few soy meat products which always amazes me. Try the carmelized soy "chicken" with a vegan thai iced tea. A large menu with something for everyone. Good sized portions will leave you with

If you're a vegetarian visiting SF, and you can only go to one vegetarian restaurant, skip Millennium and Greens and hit Golden Era in the Tenderloin. Those two fancy places are good, but the selection and menu at Golden Era is unbeatable.

Golden Era serves great vegetarian and vegan Vietnamese cuisine. Even my mom enjoyed it, and she eats meat!

Food is delicious and non-oily, and it's always fresh and satisfying. All of the "meats" are fake, made with tvp, seitan, tofu,

Although it seems a little redundant to add yet another score of 10 here I had to add my opinion. Everything you've read is true. The food at Golden Era is amazing. For a vegetarian who's used to having one or two selections to choose from

After reading the editoral and user reviews, I thought I'd finally give this place a visit. It definitely lived up to its reputation and more.
