WORST EVER!!!!!! I waited 1h30 for my food, never came. I called and they said : well we are closing, go somewhere else AND HUNG UP ON ME ! They don't care that I will be starving tonight. They never tried to call when they delivered my food, EVER ! NEVER GO THERE !

I hate to write a bad review, but I hate more that customers will get the horrible food we got today! My husband called it an EPIC failure. We tried it based on the reviews and the fact that we had been warned there were no good Chinese restaurants in Athens---what's up with that??? A vibrant college town that has... More

Don't let the fact that this restaurant is in WalMart shopping plaza deter you. It is hands down some of the best Chinese food I have every had (NYC, China, included!). Always fresh, never overcooked. The wait staff is great. The owners are from China and, boy, can hey cook. Salt and Pepper Shrimp is so good, as are all... More

Although this restaurant is located in the Walmart Shopping Center on the Lexington Highway in Athens, it is a most excellent dining experience. First and foremost, it is quiet and relaxing with soothing music--no blaring sports bar experience. There is no buffet but my menu-ordered food came out quickly and in courses. For $10, I got hot and sour soup,... More

This is a small dining restaurant in the Walmart shopping plaza. Don't let this fool you. I have never been disappointed with the food here. The wait staff is great, and the food us so delicious.

This is good Chinese food with crunchy veggies. I have tried a few different dishes here. The velvet chicken has lots of white breast meat and vegetables. It is a very mild white sauce. Not enough flavor for me, but all the components were tasty. The orange beef had great flavor - lots of orange peel and hot peppers. It's... More

The food is always fresh and cooked to perfection. You can request hot and spicy or regular. You can also ask for no extra salt and no msg. These guys will cook your order to your specifications or you can just order with no special requests. I have never, I repeat never, gotten a bad meal here or had my... More

After reading the reviews while standing in the Walmart parking lot, I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did. Everything is made fresh after you order. The waiter was simply outstanding. Better than almost any other waiter I've ever been served by. He described each menu item I asked about as if he knew the recipe by heart... More

With so many great ratings we were confident that this was a sure bet. And in fairness to Golden Sun the service was very good, the portion size generous, food came out of the kitchen with perfect timing & the cost was more than fair for two full lunch entrees. What dragged the entire experience down to an Average rating... More

One of my favorite restaurants. All freshly prepared. You may expect regular strip mall Chinese food. Not here. This is Chinese cuisine as it is supposed to be. When I travel to Athens, I ALWAYS stop here for a meal. In particular, their soups are outstanding. Excellent service as well. The price is very affordable to boot!
