I've patronized the Golden Buddha several times a year for the past 5 years. Their dim sum is the best I've found outside of Hong Kong, where I have lived for a month every year since 1997. Their dinner selections are quite impressive as well.
During the lunch hour they can be mobbed, especially on weekends. One good way to deal with this is to get there a while before you want to eat, put your name on the waiting list & then go look around at the one or 2 shops in the complex & maybe hit the Asian grocery store. For the best seating, arrive before they open and wait for the doors to be unlocked. Do not expect to be seated at the front of the restaurant unless you are in a party of 4 or more. They aren't kidding when they tell you these tables are reserved for larger parties.
Sometimes it takes a while after opening time for the full panoply of dish selections to be brought around. Be patient as it's well worth the wait.
One reviewer complained that most servers did not speak or understand English very well. This is true. Most of the waitstaff is from Hong Kong. If a diner has special needs or eating restrictions (i.e. peanut allergy) I'd suggest explaining this to the person who seats you and ask that they make of note on your ticket (in Chinese characters) that you can show to your servers.
i have been to the golden buddah many many times. i love the setting, the buildings architecture and personally the best dim sum i've ever had. i hate to leave feeling there is something left i haven't yet had a chance to eat :)
My husband and I went to the Golden Buddha last week and we felt very uncomfortable. The food is Ok ... Not he best but not the worst either. We ended up not liking golden Buddha because of he service.. The waitress we had spoke very little English so if you are particular about not liking something in a dish like peanuts forget it three out of four waiters and waitresses didn’t understand my request for no peanuts. Also no one was smiling or friendly they seemed to be just running around taking orders from an older gentlemen who seemed very grumpy. It didn’t seem like anyone liked to work at this place and it really affected the service.
THIS PLACE IS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE VALLEY.YOU CAN EAT FOR VERY LITTLE MONEY & THE DIM SUM IS GENERALLY GREAT. THERE ARE TIMES YOU CAN GET SOME FOOD THAT HAS BEEN ON THE CART AWHILE.THEY HAVE A VARIETY OF ITEMS TO CHOOSE FROM. YOU CAN ALSO TRY GREAT WALL(35TH AVE. &BETHANY)
My wife and I had lunch there today at about noon and we were both very disapointed. None of the food that showed up at the table was freshly made. Our two dishes were clearly left-overs from the night before. Chicken was fried a second time and the vegetable dish had the appearance of having sat there over night - dark, turned and wilted. To be fair, this could have been an off day but I resented being a disposal. We would have sent it back but lacked the time to go through the process, so we ate what we could, paid, left and decided not to return.
My family loves this place. It's both my daughter's favorite treat to go here on a weekend morning for Brunch. We've lived in teh bay area and had some of the best Dim Sum Available, so we know this is pretty comparable.
We went at lunch time, natives of NY- and after 2, and a half, almost 3 decades of spectacular DimSum and chinese food, from the Best of the best cooks in generations old chinese, oriental areas of NY, Queens, etc.; as a 1st generation Asian American, Golden Buddha, barely makes the mark; and in retrospect, I guess its better than most in the area; of what you can get, in Phoenix, you can go about 15 miles out to C-0Fu Restaurant in Mesa though, its marginally beter, but like all oriental stores here except one series of Bietnamese stores, in the area; its Hit or Miss.
I have been eating at Golden Buddha since it was opened. The food and service have always been excellent! Dim Sum is excellent on the weekends and I always try to make it on Sunday if I am in town. Their VIP rooms are great for meetings with dinner in the evenings.
This place serves up some delectable Chinese. Dine among glass encased Chinese sculptures and brightly painted oriental screens. Specialties include
spicy Orange Peel Beef or Chicken, breaded meats tossed with orange peel and chili peppers, and the Sizzling Go ...
