Golden Palace Seafood Restaurant continues to be a reliable mainstay for Downtown regulars and visitors looking to silence their Chinese fare cravings.

General manager Gary Lam happily invites guests to come in during the eatery’s dim sum hours daily from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

“You get a real bang for your buck with our dim sum,” shares Lam. “We offer low prices, but we also make it with the best quality. Everything is freshly made every day, and we upkeep the highest quality ingredients and portions.”

In addition to its superb dim sum, Golden Palace offers desirable entrees on its regular menu, along with some “secret” items that can be special ordered. One popular selection is Peking Duck with Buns ($18 half, $35 whole). It’s hard to resist this dish’s golden complexion, tender inside meat and soft-as-clouds buns that are more than enough to share with the entire table.

For some palate refreshment, order String Beans with Boneless Chicken ($7.95) that comes loaded with an array of colorful vegetables. Lam shares that this menu item is not always available, but it is this month’s special because the string beans are currently in season.

And, how about that “secret” item? Get your server’s attention to ask for the Vegetable Taro Basket ($9.95) that is as much of an eye-pleaser as it is appetizing. A crisp taro bowl acts as an edible — and delectable — vessel for the plethora of overflowing vegetables.

Lam reminds customers that Golden Palace is home to a revamped banquet room that can accommodate a whopping 800 people. Call the establishment now to plan your graduation, birthday and anniversary parties, or whatever else you may be celebrating. There are custom catering menus, a full stage, TV screens, speakers and more that will make your gathering that much easier to plan.
