“Great Lunch in Forks”
Review of Golden Gate

Golden Gate
Ranked #16 of 21 Restaurants in Forks
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 October 2012

I stopped by the Golden Gate with hesitation on October 9. I had the Mongolian Tofu and it was very good. I sat in the restaurant for over two hours, never asking to have my teapot re-filled and enjoying their free wifi. The owner and his wife were both kind and considerate and quite interested in my 2011 trip to Qinghai, China. Things move more slowly in Forks. That's part of its charm. I went back the next day and stayed for over an hour.

Our B&B had a menu for this place so we thought it might be alright. Service was ok, the place looked nice for a chinese restaurant but the food was horrible. I am pretty sure everything just came straight out of a package....when sauces are neon pink, I am always suspicious but I have never had such horrible Chinese Food. They could have put a bit more effort into at least making it fresh!! And then to top it off, it was $40 for the 2 of us to eat the crappy food! Such a rip off.

We came down from Vancouver and there are very good Chinese food there, but this is a different story. the food was terrible and the restaurant doesn't even fell like a Chinese restaurant. the fried rice was loaded with salt and the sweet and sour pork was basically a piece of fried batter. Last but no lease, and price is very expansive. I would never come back to this restaurant again.

We arrived waited and the owner said from across the counter in a hurry and said "here menu sit down anywhere." The place had about 18 seating tables. A third of the tables were occupied. The owners wife walked by us without greeting us about 3 times within a five minute period before saying "you have to wait" rushing by. we waited 15 more minutes and watched her walk by 4 more times without a word until my husband and I decided to leave. We did not even get tea or water within that 20 minutes. They had no hired help. I am a local resident who was very disappointed in the service that was provided today. So disappointed that I decided to post on a review. I have eaten there before and the service was okay, but I remember the food costing way too much for the value and amount. We thought we would try it out after a year. I guess it was fate that the food was still not as great.
