Golden Chinese Buffet in Mandarin is the best Chinese food value in Jacksonville. Located in a strip mall in a busy dining and shopping area on San Jose Boulevard, this Asian gem is a neighborhood treasure.
The staff is very hospitable. Alex, the owner, greets customers immediately at the front entrance. While some Chinese buffets require you to pay the fee before you even order, the wait staff at Golden Chinese Buffet does everything to make patrons comfortable including reserving the check for the end of the meal.
An unbelievable value in Asian American fare
Soups, hot entrees, rice, noodles, and dessert are ample at this popular Asian American restaurant. The lunch buffet is only $5.99 per person. Its quality is unbelievably good. Hot dishes include General Tso’s Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken, and Chicken with Broccoli. The Beef with Broccoli is tender, the vegetables crisp.
For those who like curry, the steaming, hot Curry Chicken is recommended. The Chicken Teriyaki is well-seasoned, and the Egg Drop Soup is a mild accompaniment. Booths and tables fill the decorous dining room.
Beautiful Chinese artwork enlivens the walls. The chairs are dark and pretty. With pricier, chain eateries abounding in the area, it is refreshing to explore the inexpensive yet festive food at Golden China Buffet. Customers enjoy multiple trips to the steaming buffet, making their way back happily to the tables.
Authentic taste and genuine charm
The food at Golden Chinese Buffet is delicious and part of a business that has been in operation for 18 years. The owner Alex came to the United States from Shanghai over 30 years ago, and, with a warm smile, he visibly loves offering his customers great, traditional Chinese cuisine. Perfect for a casual lunch with business colleagues, family, or friends, Golden Chinese Buffet also serves dinner and offers catering for special occasions.
A full menu is available and includes beef, chicken, pork, seafood, and vegetable entrees. Parties are welcome at Golden China which has ample facilities for family and other events.
