I have dined here for at least the last twenty years. In recent years, the place has gotten very hit or miss. It seems to be coasting on its reputation and the fact that there are so many bad Chinese eateries in the area. To its credit, the service is consistently good.

A friend and I had dinner there last night. First course of egg rolls should have been sent back at once. The egg rolls tasted old as if they had been fried hours (days?) before.

The sizzling rice soup was satisfactory. My entree of Golden Buddha Egg Fu Yung had a strange taste. Mixed in with the other ingredients I discovered were chicken livers— a first ever for me with this dish in any Chinese restaurant. My friend’s shrimp fried rice had little to no taste. It was simply devoid of seasonings and the shrimp (Who knows where they were imported from?) were like rubber and tasteless as well.

The fact that this place does a good business can mostly be attributed to its proximity to Emory and the fact that most of its customers seem willing to pay for overpriced, mediocre food.

Very disappointing.

Very disappointing. Overcooked, mushy, brown sauced, gloppy mess. No distinct flavors, stale ingredients, obviously no pride in the kitchen, they're just shoveling it out. This is not what good chinese food should be, but it is sadly too often what passes for chinese food in Atlanta.

Great Food

The food is always great. I really like the San Shan Soup. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a ""Chinese fix."" The only thing that I don't like is the ugly looking dishes on display walking into the restaurant. This is on the tacky side. However, this has nothing to do with the service or the food.

chicken chunks

I ordered delivery. the delivery was on time and the food was hot, the delivery guy was nice. They get the one star for this alone.

I ordered chicken fried rice. not good. greasy, a lot of pieces of meat but it could not be identified as chicken. I ate around it and the rice was tasty but I kept thinking that I don't know exactly what creature I was eating, or what else could be mixed in with the rice. So no more Golden Buddha for me.

me and my fiancee live in the area and are new to Atlanta. we were looking for a quiet nice chinese restaurant just cause we were craving it. initial impressions were good. high prices, but whatever. when we finished our dinnner i asked the waitress to put $7 on my credit card and 28 in cash. simple enough. NOT ONLY DID SHE CHARGE MY CARD 35 DOLLARS, THEY DIDNT EVEN APOLOGIZE FOR CHARGING ME INCORRECTLY. THEY MADE IT SEEM AS IF IT WAS MY FAULT. THEN THEY TRIED TO STILL TAKE MY CASH AND CHARGE MY CREDIT CARD AGAIN! I ENDED UP HAVING TO GIVE HER MY CASH AND A CHECK BECAUSE I DIDNT WANT THEM TO KEEP CHARGING MY CARD. NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I EVER BEEN TREATED THAT WAY. STAY FARRRRR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE AND TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Fabulous Chinese Food

I've been going to the Golden Buddha for more than 20 years. The food is a sort of Chinese-Korean mix that works wonderfully well. It is ""stick-to-your-ribs"" fare that is generally superb. There have been a few lapses in quality over the years, but it is 95% excellent and a fantastic value. They always serve twice as much as a normal person can eat, so there is always enough to take home and make another meal from.
The Empress Chicken is to die for.

Horrible Chinese, Do not order

Crab Rangoon - soggy and tasteless. Mongolian Beef - rehydrated beef jerky. Steamed Potstickers - bland meat nuggets in a wonton. Basil Spring Rolls - just basil, need I say more. Veg Spring Rolls - oily vegetable imposters. Ask yourself before you go here if you really want Chinese because you won't get here.
