Gold Mountain Restaurant
The huge sign outside Gold Mountain Restaurant is more yellow than gold, but the food inside is a treasure just the same. It occupies two floors with picture windows and a killer view of the city to enjoy while you dine on terrific Chinese food at prices that are reasonable anywhere. For lunch, there is some menu service, but the real attraction is the dim sum served from the usual rolling carts, notable only because some have grills to keep those pot stickers warm while the staff makes the circuit of the bustling dining rooms. The service is fast and efficient, though it can be a little brusque at times. Call ahead for dining hours.
It may not be as pretty and great service like some of the highend Dim sum places in San Francisco but the food is very reasonable and good....if you want to pay overpriced fancy dandy Dim sum them dont come to this place. I just want to have good Dim sum and price fairly while walking around the score of shops in Chinatown without being ripped off by the other places.
I'm not a very picky person when it comes to dining out, but this place was absolutely disgusting.
Definitely not worth the money, and its not even expensive. not much to choose from and what there was looked like it had been there since the morning before. Went to get a good home cooked-like meal, but was VERY dissappointed, worst dining experience.
Immediately after eating, my family had diarrhea.. It's disgusting!!
Wow Bad service!!! and Racist!!
I need to give some of my Filipino friends a tour of Chinatown, I speak both Cantonese and Tagalog. During breakfast, all I heard were discriminatory insults towards the filipino, while they yap away in cantonese.
They always ignore us, and always serve the other first before us. Even when my hand is raised, the food cart often skip us and move on to the next customer. They even asked and offered the other americans what kind of tea they would like., but when we were sitted they only handed cold water, I have to request for the tea myself.
After payment, we only gave them a 2 dollar tip, because of the bad service. and the manager ran and chase us down and demanded a 15% tip.
The restaurant looks great from the outside, but if you don't speak Chinese.. you'll get F*** and believe me.. They will pretty much put a smile on their faces while speaking chinese about how terrible they think you are based on your race or culture.
In the quest for a true Dim Sum experience ( Lonely Planet's guide) we trekked to Gold Mountain at 1pm. As soon as we took our number a huge line formed behind us. They hardly speak english, which is an impending sign of an authentic gastronomic experience. After a 15 min. wait we were ushered deep into the dining hall to be seated elbow-to-elbow with elderly Chinese gentlemen. There were carts being rolled around containing precious little cargos. All the servers were real nice, just catch their eye and they'll wade over to you with the offerings.
I recomend the Singapore style Mu Shu (pardon the spellings), the fried dim sums and the beef soup (to die for)
We had 5 to 6 plates between the 2 of us and a bowl of soup. Total: 20 dollars.
Highly recomend it.
