First off let me mention that my immediate family owns restaurants. Also, I ate here once with a friend at night time and the food was okay so I decided to bring my wife. We arrived at 4pm just missing the lunch buffet. That was okay since we wanted to order off the menu anyway. There was not a single other customer in the place the whole hour we were there. We ordered the sizzling rice soup as an appetizer and my wife noticed the chicken was PINK. I ate a piece of chicken with no broth or rice and it was awful and raw. I hate complaining (since my family owns restaurants), but had to say something. The waitress said "no, that's cooked chicken." I told her that cooked chicken is NOT pinkish or redish. She walked over and spoke angrily in Chinese to the manager as if we couldn't tell by her tone she was mad at us. After five minutes they brought a replacement soup. This was worse than the first one. The chicken they used was full of fat and grizzle... the parts you throw away! We couldn't even eat it and told the pleasant hispanic busboy to take it away. At this point it became apparent the waitress didn't want to deal with us anymore and had the busboy bring our crab rangoons. They were decent (how hard is it to deep fry something that comes frozen?), but they didn't bring out any chili sauce. Finally (after waiting like 25 minutes) the busboy brought our entree and it didn't look like the one we had ordered. It had different vegetables and the chicken pieces were tiny bits. The overall appearance of the entree didn't not look good. My wife said "let's just eat this"... right before finding a hair in her food. The hair was short and black, so there's no way it belonged to either of us. Now as someone from a family of restaurant managers the worse part about the whole meal was the Golden Dragon manager's apathy to my complaints. I said "I hate to complain but our first soup had raw chicken, the second soup had inedible chicken, and we found a hair in the entree". He responded as if he barely cared, "don't worry about the bill then." I think he was implying that we could finish it for free, but we got up and left. Well, we're never eating there again and hoping we don't fall ill from the raw chicken.

This restaurant has what i think are the best hours for Chinese delivery in town, always delivers hot delicious food, and normally delivers very fast. They officially start delivering mon-fri at 11am, but often they will answer the phone early and go ahead and take your order. One of my absolute favorites is their egg fu yong, which is different than any egg fu yong i ever had before, and so so so so tasty. I also love their buffet. They have a dessert ball which has a sweet red bean filling, and a sesame/bread covering, which i usually eat with soy or teriyaki sauce i think... I would be willing to pay a full dinner price JUST to eat those red bean dessert ball things from their buffet. And their green tea ice cream is my favorite dessert too. And the service is awesome, whether you get delivery or dine-in. Friendly, professional, excellent.

Golden Dragon has really delicious Chinese food, sometimes a difficult find. Their buffet has choices for even the pickiest eaters and the food is always freshly prepared. It is reasonably priced as well.

Every time we go to Golden Dragon, I have such a wonderful experience! The food is INCREDIBLE and the service always top notch! I especially enjoy the sizzling rice soup and snow white chicken. Everyone should definitely try this place at least once!

Mmmm! Delicious. Golden Dragon has a great selection of both Chinese and Japanese dishes in buffet style for lunch. And I love the exotic ice cream flavors after stuffing myself on the all-you-can-eat menu. Service is always courteous and the bill isn't too bad, either.
