I have been eating at Golden Buddha in Gainesville Florida for the last ten years or so. I like everything I have tried on their menu. Tonight I had Shredded Szechwan Beef, Pan Fried Dumplings, and Hot and Sour Soup. The Szechwan Beef is spicy hot, but I was warned on the menu. The beef was tender, the cut veggies still crispy out of the wok. The soup had large chunks of mushrooms and was very nice. The dumplings are the best in Gainesville as far as I am concerned.
Stay away! This small family owned restaurant has its fans and its detractors. I have gone there off and on for 10 years but will never return. Yes, the food can be tasty but this place has been going downhill for quite awhile. The owner is a psycho, seriously (his wife and kids are nice). Their portions are getting smaller (the meat not the cheap veggies and rice). The prices have gone up. They use MSG and the health department has issued many citations and closed them down a few times. This place was once a gem but the current owner has run the business into the ground. There are too many decent Chinese take outs in Gainesville to bother with this place.
This is the best Chinese take out I have ever had! AMAZING! Their fried rice is devine, spring rolls delicious, and both egg foo young and brown sauce are to die! Love this place.
best vegetable fried rice i have ever had!!
No idea why in the world comments have been reset for this restaurant. This is the best chinese food you'll find in Gainesville outside of maybe some of the fancy samurai-style places I haven't been to. Mom and Pop run; they're always friendly and prompt with your order. It's a small place and they dont have any outside help so I would suggest getting your order to go.
Bottom line: great food and great price. Definitely recommend the chicken fried rice.
