Sadly, a terrible, dark, dirty place. Lousy buffet and poor service. Really gives Chinese cuisine a bad name.

Called here by chance on a one night stay in Morro Bay. Restaurant looked clean and staff very friendly. Good choice on the menu. Food service was quick and well presented. Tasty food at a reasonable price. Would go back again.

Golden China is da BOMB! Their food is unlike any other Chinese food I have ever had. Fresh and delicious! Their buffet is fantastic! Their take out portions are very big too! They do not use MSG, and Grace, the manager is a sweet heart!
