We visited this small casual Chinese restaurant for the second time last night and were just as impressed with the food as on our first visit. My husband and I ordered the whole fried rock cod with bean sauce (the other sauce options were sweet and sour or soy) and vegetables with glass noodles. The fish was absolutely fresh and fried to perfection. The sauce was a perfect complement. The vegetable dish was served sizzling hot in an iron pot . A bit different from the usual stir fry but delicious. What we really like about this place is that each dish we have tried has its own individual taste. It doesn't taste like all the dishes are seasoned with the same sauce like it does in so many Chinese restaurants. The food is also well presented, not just thrown on a platter. The staff is a bit stiff at first but warmed up as we asked questions and commented on how much we enjoyed the food.
I really enjoy my dining experience at the Golden Willow Chinese Restaurant. The food is excellent, offering low calorie, low fat, no MSG dishes. The owners/hostess/chef/staff have great customer service and always make you feel welcome. It's amazing how the hostess always remembers your name, what you've ordered in the past and even where you sat in the restaurant the last time you were there. She's always checking to make sure your dining experience is pleasurable
We just got back from Golden Willow Restaurant and what a wonderful experience we had. The food was exceptional. The best Chinese food that I have had in ages. The hostess/owner was such a joy to be around and makes everyone feel welcome. If she felt that you would not like a dish you were ordering she would let you know not to order it. As I said the food was out of this world. The best. Definitely will be going back over and over again.
