Best Vegetarian Chinese Food Period. – 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 that every time I think about them, my mouth waters.
Great vegetarian food - consistently! – 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.
Original Great, #2 on Clement is lousy – Great food but I've tried the second on Clement and it bites. Food isn't as good, terrible and rude service.
Vegetarian and vegan diners trek to the Tenderloin for low-priced Asian fare. – In Short
This cavernous eatery, festooned with gold-gilded, ornate fixtures, domed ceilings and white-clothed tables, offers a sit-down atmosphere at takeout-joint prices. The menu--entirely void of meat, poultry, fish and egg products--offers a wide range of mock meat entrees, including soy lemon "chicken," tofu "lamb" clay pot and spicy Vietnamese-style soy "beef" stew. Vietnamese mushu crepes, Thai salads and bowls of pho are also available.
The Best Asian Cusine – Golden Era is the best restaurant hands down in SF. I go there weekly and have not been disapointed yet. Its excellently priced the food is amazing and the service is great!I Love Golden Era!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent! – This is the best value vegetarian eating in the city. The soups are very tasty, and healthy, and I would rec. the lemon chicken, eggplant clay pot, sweet and sour pork, among other dishes. The crepe appetiser is extremely tasty. They make the best mock meats I've tasted outside of Shanghai. And you can return to try their many dishes as it is affordable.
Lovely lovely lovely – 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 lunch for the following day and a satisfied tummy. Reasonably priced, two can feast on twenty to thirty dollars.
THE BEST VEGETARIAN FOOD EVER!!!!!! – I've tried many vegetarian restaurants and Golden Era is by far the BEST vegetarian I have EVER had! Try them, you won't be disappointed!!!!!
Best vegetarian restaurant in San Francisco – 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. The Pineapple Salmon in particular is outstanding. The only reason I signed up at Citysearch was to give this restaurant a top rating. It's my favorite place in the city.
