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.
The best asian food in town – Nothing can compare with this restaurant, the food is so good and addicted,try one of their special seafood noodle soup and the empress chicken is awesome!!!and one more thing their home made dumpling is outstanding,i will say 10 point for this place,very highly recommended
Best Chinese Food in Atlanta – OK so they say this food is Americanized. I still say it s the best Chinese food you can get in this city. I went to one of the highly-touted restaurants on Buford Highway and the Mongolian beef and pot stickers did not even come close to the Golden Buddha's. Try the sizzling San-Shan soup or the hot & sour soup. This place has been here since I was a child, but after trying many, many other Chinese resturants in Atlanta, the Golden Buddha is still the best! Friendly, fast service and good take-out too!
Golden Buddha is THE place for Chinese in Atlanta. Get the Princess Shrimp, a batter fried shrimp dish or Beef with Plum sauce: two dishes that can't be beat. For appetizers, the fried Pot Stickers are simply products of some Chinese culinary dream, and shouldn't be missed.
The staff is a congenial bunch and quick to refill your water or to get you another ice cold Tsingtao
Campy fun and carryout for diners who like their Chinese food American-style. – The Scene
Dozens of Buddha statues smile down upon diners in this quirky but comfortable main drag chain restaurant. Vinyl booths in baby blues and peachy pinks lead up to a fascinating Day-Glo plastic food display. Translucent window treatments keep camp in, Clairmont Road out.
Predictably Americanized, the big attractions at Golden Buddha are the flaming pupu platters and sticky neon orange sweet and sour dishes. Fans of authentic Chinese food will doubtless be dissapointed by sticky steamed dumplings or Szechuan vegetables in sodium-heavy sauce. If you're looking for a safer bet, try shrimp in a light, wine-flavored lobster sauce. Better still is the shrimp and broccoli with a brown sauce loaded with hints of ginger and garlic and spicy red pepper flakes.
