The best place for chinese food in Waukesha.
On my first visit, I got a friendly greeting from our server Lauren. She suggested cantonese combintion loo mein and kungpoa chicken - mild. We also noticed they had american food and fish fries. Our food came out fast and it looked appealing and hot. It had good flavor and large portions. Lauren refilled our soda and packed up the left overs. We had a very good meal and time at Golden Gate, we will be back to try the fish fry, it looked good in the table next to us.
We won't be going back.
We got the orange chicken and the Mongolian beef. The orange chicken had very little orange flavor...it was just very sugary sweet. The mongolian beef was not like any I have ever had before and definitly the worst I've ever had. This was the worst chinese food I've ever eaten and my husband agreed. Later in the evening I ended up sick to my stomach....
I wont return here!.
I had heard great reviews and heard it rocked... well I must have caught them two times on a really bad day! I paid almost 13 dollars for a half-full quart of sweet and sour chicken with tons of sauce and no chicken. The menu price was also different when I got there... It said nothing about pint or quart sizes or difference in price...
I was so not please either time. I love chinese and this fell so short from its reviews.
Best Place to Eat, Drink & Meet Friends.
Golden Gate Restaurant (also known as: Chinese Cheers, Amy's Place, or Top 100) is the best place to eat, drink and meet friends. Everyone there is very friendly and helpful (they are really have full service - the bartender even fixed my computer while I was having a Mai Tai). Their food is tasty, portions are big (enough for lunch tommorrow) and price is very reasonable. Just ask Chef Amy and she will cook anything you like to the way you want it (even if its not on the menu, I even seen them make Elk Steaks Venison Burgers, Pizza and Spaghetti). They are really a "Top 100 Chinese Restaurant in America" they won the award last year ranking #2 in the USA. They have a very large menu to select from (Chinese & American Food). My favorite dishes are Cantonese Combination Chow Mein, Hong Kong Steak, Friday Fish Fries and Mongolian Beef. I have been eating there for over 15 years and I have not found any place better (my car knows how to get there by itself). See you there.
Best place for Chinese food and a cocktail in the greater Waukesha area, hands down..
The Gate is tucked backed in a little shopping center in downtown Waukesha, where its been for over 20 years. The food is the absolute best in the Waukesha area and the portions are quite large for the price. The owners and staff are very friendly, the service is quick, and every time I take someone new there they always love the atmosphere. I highly recommend checking out Golden Gate and don't forget to try their Fish Fry on Fridays, delicious.
They are really the Top 100 Restaurant in America.
I have be there many times and since they were voted top 100 chinese restaurant in america they have done some remodeling. There food has always be one of the best in the Waukesha/Milwaukee Area. It is a long drive for us but well worth it. Very friendly service.
