“Favorite pho joint in the Denver area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

I've been to numerous Vietnamese restaurants in the Denver area and I always come back to Golden Saigon. The service is always friendly and fast. There are a couple of restaurants with better broth, but they never beat Golden Saigon in consistency. The meat and vegetables are much fresher than Pho 79 which seems to be an Aurora favorite. The service is friendlier than two of my other favorites- Pho Saigon in Centennial and Viet Pho in Lone Tree. Overall, Golden Shanghai is always an excellent dining experience.

“steaming hot food made to order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Found this place on Trip Advisor and it was close to our hotel so we decided to try it. We weren't disappointed one bit. Food was great and steaming hot. The customer service was top notch. Very nice people. Its in a small strip mall and doesn't look like much but they know how to cook.

“Great food. Service inconsistent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

Food is fantastic. We ordered the "make your own" spring tools with chicken and shrimp. Was fantastic. Comes with a huge plate of meat and veggies. We made extras and brought them home. They don't have enough help so when it gets busy it is hard to get their attention. But food is worth t!

“Yes, tremendous service, good food, super value.... just please, do keep the place cleaner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

So many reviewers cannot be wrong. Had a light meal mid-afternoon, just to check the place out. Liked the servers, food was tasty and a real value. Afterwards, I only reflected on the smudges on all windows, glass, etc.... the bathroom did not feel super clean. How much more satisfying the visit would have been if the owners attended to these cosmetic details! But, I will definitely return....
