Best Chinese food I have ever had, authentic, fresh, crispy general tso chicken under the perfect sauce, not too sweet, perfect spice, everything from brown not yellow fried rice to the sweet and sour soup was just perfect. Very quiet place. The only thing I didn't like is that they were sweeping the floors next to us and I didn't... More

Been going here for over 20 yrs! Nothing has changed, and it doesn't have to. If you want GOOD Chinese food and a GOOD Mai Tai or Scorpion Bowl, this is where you need to go.

The Golden Pagoda offers good tasting food, but unfortunately they seem to do everything possible to avoid giving you much of it, especially when it comes to meat. I've never had General Tso Chicken where the chicken was covered in a dough and fried. The dough was overly thick and mushy, the chicken almost non-existent. The portion very small. The... More

Chinese food can get greasy if not done right. That is not an issue here. The food is very delicious and not like "fast food Chinese." It's actually prepared well and very flavorful. Also, the prices are very decent. One of my favorite Chinese places.

I haven't been to Golden Pagoda in years due to the fact that I'm not a huge Chinese food fan but I had a great experience . It's always good to support an independently owned business and I will be going back.

My wife and I have dined here many time since we've lived in the Bristol area (15 years in 2014) and have never had a bad meal or bad service. The ambiance is old school Chinese, and that is half the fun..kitschy decorations and all. And having tried a few other Chinese restaurants in the area, have been disappointed often... More

Worst Service EVER. Here's what happened: My wife and I went in to grab a quick dinner around 7:30PM on a Saturday. Three other couples in booths, one table of five people so the restaurant was maybe a quarter filled. We got the menue and wanted to order Shrimp Fried Rice to share $7.95 , 2 orders on Wonton Soup,... More
